Lazaroo – Wednesday, July 1, 2009

4 comments, Jul 01, 2009

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with explosive feeling:

“The pastures of the shepherds dry up…”
(Amos 1:2)

I know what that feels like, Jesus.

To run out of resources.

To run out of time.

To run out of ideas.

And all of it beyond my control.

But not beyond Yours!

Thank God.

Not beyond Yours.

You can show me the resources I’ve overlooked.

Or bring new ones to me.

Or create them out of nothing.

You’re never out of time.

You’re above it.

Unbound by it.

You can manipulate time however You like.

You have something better than ideas. You have –

plans

insights

breakthroughs

revelations

Next time this shepherd’s pasture runs dry…

…please help me remember I am also a sheep…

…who has a Shepherd…

…whose resources are inexhaustible.

    Thanks, Jennie, Jeff, Jeremy. You keep me going.

  2. Jeremy Says:

    If you ever put together a Lazaroo “Greatest Hits” this one should make the list. Definitely a perfect daily reminder of God’s control over the situation. It’s so easy to get bogged down in a day and completely forget this. I pray God will help keep me focused and motivated to do his will, not mine, every day, no matter

  3. Jeff Says:

    I need to pray this one everyday. I think one problem we all tend to have is to concentrate so much on the self that we cannot see His plan, His ways, His salvation. If I can keep my eyes on Jesus, instead of finding sorrow in my circumstances, I will discover excitement in anticipation of how God is going to work His will in it.
