Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with pure devotion:
“…the Lord delivered his people out of Egypt…”
I wish I didn’t have to be reminded of this, Jesus –
You are the one who delivered Your people –
not just out of Egypt –
but out of every calamity they ever faced.
I shouldn’t have to be reminded that You are the Deliverer –
the only Deliverer! –
but again and again and again…I forget.
How many times when I run into a small difficulty
do I first try to figure it out all by myself, thinking
“I can handle this one”
only to discover I can handle it all right…
and make it worse!
How many times when a huge new threat looms
do I first go into panic mode
before I remember that thanks to You
I’m never alone?
Whether the problem is big or small
I’m not my deliverer.
