Lazaroo – Wednesday, July 11, 2012

Jul 11, 2012 I Lazaroo.


Proceed with Godly caution, as you pray aloud the words of this Lazaroo:

“Later when the anger of King Xerxes had subsided, he remembered Vashti and what she had done and what he had decreed about her.”
(Esther 2:1)

That’s hard for me, isn’t it, Jesus?

…to remember my own words and have to decide

whether to honor them
or eat them.

Either way, it can be tough.

Sometimes I write checks with my mouth
that have the potential to empty my account.

I was talking so big at the time, impressing everyone…
now it’s time to back up my words with actions

and I don’t want to!

But it’s a matter of integrity, isn’t it?

If I promised it
I’ve got to deliver

no matter what the cost.

Otherwise, my word is meaningless.
I’m just another liar.

But there are times when what I said

was just plain wrong

which requires me to pick up my fork
open wide

and swallow.

1 Kings 8:46-51; Psalms 19:14; Proverbs 6:1-5; Proverbs 8:6-9; Proverbs 10:9; Ecclesiastes 8:9; Romans 9:1; James 1:19-20; Revelation 21:7-8

What is Lazaroo?
