Lazaroo – Tuesday, September 22, 2009

Sep 22, 2009 I Lazaroo.


Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with white-hot fervor:

“The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.”
(John 1:5)

Thank You for shining Your light into my darkness, Jesus!

I used to hate the light.

I was terrified that Your light would expose my secrets, show me for what I really am.

I was fast asleep, unwise, blind –

with absolutely no idea of where I was actually going.

And then I made the greatest decision of my life:

I chose You…

…because You had chosen me.

I threw away my dark ways, put on the armor of light and became a child of the day!

Dear God.

Please help me stay

alert
sober
self-controlled
focused on heaven
full of faith, hope and love

and passionately eager for You to shine Your light through me

into the lives of those who are still

stumbling in darkness.

    Isn’t is amazing that the thing we fear most – that God’s light will expose the darkness of our thoughts and deeds – is the one thing that we most need. For our freedom is not found in the locking away of our darkest secrets but in exposing them to the brightest of light. This the necessary first step to restoration whether our addiction is to alcohol, drugs, pornography, gossip, social status, financial comfort, or any other means of feeding our flesh. Until we are exposed, we remain imprisoned in darkness with our “little secrets.”

    Funny, in light of this, that confession is the most uncomfortable and least practiced discipline in Christ’s Church today.

    I love to consider that no matter how dark it gets, it is never so dark that it silences the light. Thank you, Lord, for the hope we see when observing that fact in our physical world.

    Jesus said that men love darkness rather than the light. May it be that we turn away from the dark deeds of this world and turn our hearts towards Him. “Choose you this day whom you will serve….. But as for me and my house we will serve the Lord !! ” If only we could take our eyes off the things of this world and gaze upon Him, wait upon Him and when He says go, GO !! May His light shine upon us so that we not stumble in the darkness as some do but let be the light of the world as He shines that light in and through us. Thanks Steve.
