Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with zealous anticipation:

“The word of the LORD came to Ezekiel…”
(Ezekiel 1:3)

Bring Your Word to me today, Jesus!

Make it so clear that I can’t miss it.

Make it Big, Bold and utterly Beautiful to my eyes.

Cause it to pierce my heart.

Cause it to correct my sinful ways.

Cause it to alter my course and flawlessly guide my steps.

Cause it to sharpen my thoughts.

Cause it to clarify my goals.

Cause it to embolden me with courage.

Cause it to fill my body with strength.

Cause it to flood me with hope.

Please.

Bring Your Word to me today.

Don’t delay.

I need it.

I really, really need it.

Now.

    That is where I am, too. I sometimes think we don’t strive to embrace His plan for us, but are more concerned with what WE want. I do concur with Steve. Lazaroo does often remind us of the narrow path and the “not my will but Thine” relationship.

  2. Steve Says:

    Hey, Johnny! Welcome aboard. You’re right on, my friend. I appreciate the mature words – maybe even from the sound of it – words borne out of the fire of intense personal experience. I sure hope you’ll click on the above E-mail or RSS links to get Lazaroo each day. You’ll find over time that the Scripture keeps cycling us back to themes of self-denial and the maturation that comes from pain – and that the Lazaroos on those days faithfully embody that tough, but vital truth. Great stuff. Thanks.

    Hey Pastor Steve. Your “How well do you know the most important Book ever written?” is pretty good. I would just tread lightly with passages that emphasize Earthly rewards. There are many more passages that clearly state the Path of the Believer is pain, trial and challenge; Matthew 16:24, “Then Jesus said to His disciples, ‘If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me.'” There is a demonic heresy that tells unsuspecting Christians that all they need is “faith” and they’ll never have want because God does not want them to experience pain. That’s only PARTIALLY true. More important than a Christian never experiencing pain is a Christian becoming conformed to the Image of their Messiah, so that He can more thoroughly enjoy His Marriage. I mean, who wants to be married to a whiny, immature narcissist? And, by the way, the surest path to maturity is…pain.
