Lazaroo – Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Dec 19, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Humbly pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud to God:

“Therefore he sacrifices to his net and burns incense to his dragnet, for by his net he lives in luxury and enjoys the choicest food.
(Habakkuk 1:16)

It’s so easy to fall into that trap, isn’t it, Jesus?

You bless me with something that makes my life so much

easier
happier
successful.

At first, I’m grateful beyond words

to You.

But days, weeks, months, years pass.
In time, I forget it was You who gave me the gift.

Then comes the day that my total focus

is on the gift

as though it was always here

had no origin
gave itself.

Unthinkably, the gift

takes Your place in my heart and mind.
It becomes my

source
strength
hope
god.

I look to it
praise it
count on it
exult in it

leaving You with no choice but to smash it to smithereens

because that’s what You do

to idols.
