This is what I have been chewing on today. I was challenged by this from the Beth Moore Bible study on Esther. I hope somebody else can appreciate this today:) It is referring to the Jewish people receiving word that Haman (a Persian leader) put into play a law that all the Jews would be killed and annihilated on a certain day in 11 months. They heard word of this on the beginning day of their Passover
“The story of God’s merciful redemption gave those who were willing a hope against hope. Could He who had delivered them from the Egyptians not also deliver them from the Persians?
You bet He can, Beloved. He who delivered you from drugs can deliver you from distraction. He who delivered you from bankruptcy can deliver you from bingeing, He who delivered you from infertility can deliver you from inconsistency. He who delivered you from the fire can deliver you from fear.
Sometimes God uses the winds of a new threat to blow the dust off a past miracle that has moved from our active file into the archives. Remember, Beloved! Remember what God has done for you! Rehearse the story again.
Find someone this week to retell it to. Dear One, He who delivered you from a Pharaoh can deliver you from any Haman. Remember who you are.”
He has done so much for us and sometimes I have to look back to hang on through the winds of today. Just thinking out loud I guess:)
Love to you!
