Let Go And Let God (Part 4)

We’re going to be continuing with our series titled, Let Go and Let God. Before we do that, we’re going to recap like we try to do every episode. We’re also going to take the time to acknowledge God. I thank you, Heavenly Father, for this opportunity to get at the feet of your son, Jesus, and to hear Him. I thank you that you’re giving and imparting to each and every one of us the spirit of wisdom, revelation, and the knowledge of Jesus. I thank you for causing the eyes of our understanding to be enlightened all the more, that we may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in us, the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe according to the working of His mighty power.

I thank you that as you fix our eyes on Jesus, your Holy Spirit is going to work inside of us and transforming us into His same image. I thank you that all the power, presence, provision, promises, divine protection, prosperity, good success, all the things that make us rich in every area of our life inside and out are added to us effortlessly as we do the one thing that is needful, we get at the feet of Jesus, and we hear Him. I thank you for expounding on us, on the scripture to the things concerning your son, Jesus.

I thank you for causing us to comprehend the scriptures more, to know Him more, to walk more intimately with Him. I thank you, Jesus, for the fresh revelation of yourself being given to us, and fresh impartation is being imparted to us. I thank you, God, that you are light in your life. The blood of Jesus, all that He is, was, and He is to come is manifesting in us, and it is transferring to every area of our life. I thank you, God, for your presence, Lord and for your purpose. I believe in the decree and declare that none of us will leave the same. Our lives will have no choice but to firmly be establishing your kingdom, which has come, and your perfect will be done in our life and the life of every one of our family members. In Jesus’ name, we pray.

Let Go And Let God: A Recap

People who were there with us on the journey in the last episode might need refreshers. Let’s recap and talk about how we began this series. We began by not diving right into the examples that God has for us in the word of God, through the lives of various people, where they let go and let God. They saw the fruit, benefits and blessings of doing so. God started off by telling us and reminding us of who He is. God is love. His perfect love, unconditional love and love that will never fail you. His love doesn’t cease or stop. It’s not based on what we do or what we don’t do. This is not about dotting I’s and crossing T’s. This is about who He is. He is love like my mom is a woman.

When I’m in her presence, if I misbehave, it doesn’t change who she is because she is a woman. God is love. It’s not only that He gives love, demonstrates love to us, but He is love. We cannot change God. For the word of God declares, “He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Whether we made a mistake minutes ago or right now, it doesn’t change who He is. His perfect love towards you and me. That by no means can or will ever change. We start there. That’s the very foundation of this whole thing. It’s not just what Jesus Christ did on the cross.

Although that’s everything for us as Born Again believers and for those who decide to give their life to Christ. It makes the difference of everything in this life and the one to come. Before Jesus did that and God demonstrated His love towards us by sending His one and only son to die, the Bible says, “For God so loved us, that He gave His only begotten son.” Love preceded the gift. Love is the reason why He gave the gift. Love is the reason why that’s the particular gift He gave. He gave us His best. That demonstrates His love. I don’t know if we can comprehend it even in this limited flesh.

Jesus loved us first and that’s why He laid down His life. No one took it. He laid it down. No one forced God’s hand. He was a debtor to no one. He didn’t owe us this. He willingly gave Himself as an offering and a sacrifice before any of us even got Born Again, praying, fasting, touching, and agreeing while we were in sin with our middle fingers to God. No condemnation, but we were all there while we were saying, “Crucify Him and let Barabbas go.” That’s when God demonstrated and gave His best act of love. This is important to remember. We got to take our minds and our eyes off ourselves.

It’s not about us. It’s about Him, His son, His love, His purpose, and how wonderful, amazing, perfect, and beautiful He is. He’s indescribable. He’s good. You can’t even describe it. My words fail, but God is good all the time. It’s important to remember when He showed us His best, gave us His best, gave us everything we could ever need or want and desire in this life or the one to come. That’s why God was able to say, truthfully, on the cross, “It is finished.” God and Jesus interchangeably because if you’ve seen the son, you’ve seen the father. They are truly one. God is three in one, the father, son, and Holy Spirit.

It was amazing to me that God loved us perfectly then. He gave us His best standing with Him. He freely gives us all things. The Bible says, “If He didn’t spare his own son but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not also with Him freely give us all things?” It’s a rhetorical question. The lesser is always included in the greater. Jesus is like a zillion. Though, you can’t put a number on Him and His greatness. Anything else we ask for, no matter how important it is, even if it’s important, it’s a billion right of importance. If you could scale that or number that, Jesus is so far above it. The million or the billion is included in the zillion.

TOT 89 | Let God
Let God: God has a way of you effortlessly letting go, and letting God take all your burdens upon Himself, and allowing Him in return to exchange it all for His blessings, and the over-answer of your prayers!

When He gave you the $1 zillion, He did give you $1 billion even if what you’re facing is that important. If it’s important to you, it’s important to God. I cannot stress that enough. There is nothing insignificant to God if it is significant to you. There is no such thing. He loves you way too deeply. He even knows the number of hairs on your head. When you can give time, attention, and detail to somebody like that, watch over them that carefully, you’re that interested, absorbed with them like that, if they’re crying or something has hurt them or broke their heart, God is all over that. He’s on top of that. You can’t talk Him out of it. You’re not taking them off that ledge. He jumped already.

He’s madly in love with you and me. My prayer to God is that we can comprehend someway, somehow the depth, length, breadth and height of His love for us, which surpasses knowledge, in Jesus’ name. Everything in us and around us would change, but God talked to us too a bit about how we’ve been made righteous and how the righteousness of God is a gift. The righteousness of God is not about what we do and don’t do. It’s not about dotting i’s and crossing t’s. It’s a gift. When you believe in Jesus Christ, God raised Him from the dead, died for your sins, He is the Christ, the son of the living God, God confers to you His righteousness.

It’s like when the prodigal son came home in Luke 15. He hadn’t done anything right. In fact, he’d done everything wrong, but when he came to the father, that’s us giving our life to Christ. That’s us being reconciled to God. When that happens, the father says, “Get the best robe.” That robe represents the robe of righteousness and that’s what God has done. He’s given us His robe of righteousness. God has justified us in His own blood. Like Jesus said, “What I have cleansed, let no one call unclean.” That no one includes yourself. Don’t dare call yourself unclean or unworthy. Not in your thoughts, not in your actions, not in your acceptance of that coming from others or the devil himself. Don’t let anyone call unclean what Jesus Himself has cleansed.

I’m sure if Jesus does something and sets out to do something. He does it perfectly. That’s my guess because He’s perfect. From the root, you always get the corresponding fruit. From perfection, you can only bear perfection. If He says He has perfected the saints, which He has, you’ve been perfected and so have I. Case closed. If you say, “I don’t get it because sometimes I mess up.” That’s fine. Say this, “I am perfected and there are also some things in life I don’t get.” Don’t let what you don’t get negate what Jesus has said and has done. Not in your mind. You can’t negate it where you make it null and void, but you can cause it where it has no effect on your life. That’s what you don’t want to do.

It’s like somebody whose parents, not the same. I got to give an example for illustrative purposes. If somebody’s parents give them a Bentley and they never drive it, they are like, “No. They wouldn’t have given that to me. I haven’t done anything to deserve it.” Tires are going flat at this point because they refuse to believe that their parents are that good, despite what they’ve done or not done. Let’s take them at their word. Let’s get some air in those tires. Let’s take that Bentley for a few spins, “I’ll drive mine first if you don’t want to.” We got to enjoy God, but if somebody doesn’t believe it, they don’t get to enjoy it.

Is it still true? Yes. Is it still there a Bentley? Yes. Did the parents title it in their name? Yes, they did. That’s over and done with, but it’s almost like of no effect with what the parents did, spending that kind of money on a beautiful car because they don’t even believe something that good could happen to them. That’s why we got to take our eyes and keep our eyes off ourselves. This is not about us. God’s position is He keeps His eyes locked and His focus locked on us. Our position in this story called life is that we keep our hearts, minds, and eyes locked on Him. That’s that is the way that this goes. That’s everybody’s role in this story called life. God also told us about how, when we let go and let God, it is the greatest act of humility.

We went over some of the benefits and blessings of humbling ourselves. We went over some of the detriment of pride. We want to do that. We can’t do it by might or power by God’s spirit. How was every blessing received? It’s received by faith. How does faith come? Faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of Christ. That’s doing that one thing that is needful like Mary, the sister of Martha and Lazarus. We get that from Luke 10:38-42. We want to make that our lifestyle with what we’re doing right now, staying at the feet of Jesus. It’s not an exaggeration. It was never meant to be on a Sunday when they preach a sermon. That was never it. This is our life.

Jesus is the bread of life. Nobody eats a meal once a week. We’d be dead in different ways. Even if we have a pulse, the kidneys have failed. Something has gone terribly wrong because we were meant to eat even multiple times in one day. That’s our body part. God gave us a body and that’s good, that’s from God, but we are a spirit. This body will decay. We’ll get new ones so no worries. Our spirit is what will live on forever. It makes sense to me that if you’re going to invest in something, you will invest in what’s yours, what’s more permanent like you want to put marble floors down in your house. You don’t want to do that in a studio apartment you’re renting on a month-to-month basis.

TOT 89 | Let God
Let God: There is nothing insignificant to God. If it is important to you, it is important to Him.

The Book Of Esther

We are going to get to an example. We’re going to look at the book of Esther. This is one of my favorite books. I love this book altogether, the Bible. You don’t read it. It reads you. It’s life. It’s life-giving. It never ceases to amaze me what it does when you spend time in it. It’s not a regular book. That’s for certain. I know that because I’ve read many books. My mom can tell you that. I’ve been a reader since I could read. It’s definitely not that there. This book is not like the other ones on the shelf, in the bookstore. That’s for certain.

This year is God himself because you can come feeling a certain way, sit down and read this book and let Jesus feed you, and leave feeling different even if nothing else around you changed. I know that in some very trying, difficult and dark times, that it is true. If that weren’t true, it would be like, “My God, you would have noticed it did you no good but I’m telling you, that with nothing else changing, pitch black darkness, like dark as it can be, the eleventh-hour dark.”

I feel light in me. Light is bursting forth. I don’t know how to explain it. It’s like, “What did you do?” I didn’t do anything. I got at the feet of Jesus and I was letting Him feed me by reading the Bible. That’s all it is. God is good and he’s going to let us look into his heart all the more, for He is His word. We’re going to see Him. We’re going to see Jesus. We’re going to see His heart and this is the means that God is using to give us the ability, to impart to us the ability to let go and let Him, and to trust Him more. Know Him more is to trust Him more. It is said, “To trust him wholly is to find that He’s wholly trustworthy.”

That’s what we’re doing because when we hand over our battles or our challenges to God, it gives Him the opportunity to be glorified, demonstrates to us and those around us that He is God. He’s God all by Himself and He is for us. He is with us. The miracle of knowing that, seeing that and believing that, what that does to us and for us is more important than even the underlying prayer requests that we have, even though it is important. God always works from the inside out.

I don’t like to assume that anybody has read the book of Esther. There are people of different walks, people who have gotten Born Again and people reading who have not been Born Again yet, but you’re on your way, in Jesus’ name. I’m not going to assume. I’m going to skim through at first, and then there’ll be some parts where we line up online and precept upon the word of God. The Book of Esther opens up with the king of that day. He is married to a woman named Vashti. They have this huge banquet going on.

Everything seems on the outside to be happy, flourishing and people are singing and feeding until their stomachs are filled and drinking until they stumble home. This is going on for days. The king has spared no expense. He’s lavishing it on the people and there are these banquets. They are singing and dancing entertainment. The finest quality of furniture and curtains out. It’s great, it seems like. It then gets to a particular part where the king has had a bit to drink. He’s happy he’s drinking, maybe too much even. He says that he wants his wife to be brought to him. He wants to show off. He’s showing off everything else.

He’s got all these things on display. People see his richest, his glory. All these man-made things that a king would have. His wife is super beautiful. He wants people to see, “You’ve not seen my most prized possession yet. It’s my wife.” I don’t think he meant any harm, but his wife was offended. She refused the king’s command to be brought to him and prance in front of people and him wanting to boast, to look how to look at his wife, “This lady is gorgeous.” She had this outward adornment, but perhaps not that inner beauty that God talks about in the New Testament on the wife. She’s a bit rebellious. She would be like, “Who are you talking to?” I know he didn’t. She probably came like that, “I’m from Chicago.”

She refused and this was not just any refusal, back in these days. There was a big imbalance. I know there’s still an imbalance with men and women, but there was a larger one back then. When she refused, this was something that wouldn’t impact her own marriage. It would impact every marriage in all those provinces that the king ruled over at the time because it was thought that if the women find out that Vashti is brave and bold enough to rebel against the king as her husband, what’s going to happen to the guy that maybe sweeps the sidewalk outside. He’s like, “His wife’s going to be running over him when she finds out that Queen Vashti, the leader of women at that time.” To whom much is given, much is required.

People are listening. They’re observing. You don’t want to feel like you got to live your life for them, but it does matter when you represent the king and how much greater that we, the bride of Christ, represent King Jesus. We want to be wise with that because it’s a reflection of what we do and don’t do upon the king. The king is like, “What am I going to do?” He’s got plenty of advisers like, in America, they got the cabinet. The White House is helping the president and the vice-president out.

TOT 89 | Let God
Let God: When we let go and let God, it is the greatest act of humility.

They’re telling him, “You got to get rid of this lady because she has shown contentment for the king and you’re the king. We don’t stand in your shoes. Our wives don’t have our heads. Heads are going to roll at home when they found out it was okay to do this, to be insubordinate and get away with it.” The King orders a divorce, “Vashti, you got to go. You don’t have to go home, but you got to get out of here.” He sent her away. When that happens, then the king sobers up. He was like, “Was that too much? Because she was fine.” It’s ugly on the inside, but did you see he walk into a room? He’s going back and forth. I’m joking and paraphrasing, but he starts to have second thoughts. He was like, “Was that too much what I did to that lady?” To come and help the king because back then when kings decreed a thing, it was established.

There was no going back. He didn’t say, “Get out.” He made a decree, “Where the word of a king is, there is power,” the Bible says. You got to watch your mouths kings and priests of God. God has made us believers, kings and priests. I’ll be the first to say, “It’s me in the need of that prayer.” They went and came immediately. They’re like, “You don’t need to wanting her back. We got a plan. We got an idea.” They say, “Let’s grab all the beautiful virgins in all these provinces. Let them come out, get beauty preparations and beauty treatments.” It’s like a contest like The Bachelor, for example. I think they might’ve got this from the Book of Esther.

That was God’s idea, The Bachelor. The king is surrounded by all these beautiful young virgins, but one is going to be the queen and the other one he’ll keep in a harem. That right there is his own sermon. I’m like, “What a life to be left like that,” but that’s what it was. It was custom back in those days. One of the beautiful virgins was Esther. She was Jewish. She was raised by her uncle Mordecai. The reason why I feel from God to do this is because in my own personal time with God, when I’m alone with Him, He’s been telling me to slow down when I read.

It’s not about how much you get in. It’s about how much it gets in you. The richness of it. God is his word so there could be a single verse that’s read. There’s so much nourishment you get from that. It can change your life. It can give you the wisdom you needed, you were longing for. Faced with a tough decision, now you know what to do because of one verse God led you to read. It wasn’t about spending hours going through chapters and books. It was about that one verse and going over that one verse and letting God pull out of it all the nourishment, all the light understanding, all kinds of revelations coming out of the one verse because God is His word.

In all things, let’s be led by God, but God has been telling me, “Slow down. Go back and reread that. Are you understanding the sentence you read? Go back again.” It’s so much even in one sentence sometimes. That’s why we’re taking our time and doing that because it’s the way that the Lord is leading me. If he’s feeding through me, then it’s the same way that He’s giving it to the audience. I want to be obedient to God and to do that. Bear with me if you’re like, “I know that. That’s my favorite book too.”

It’s interesting to me though, that God had given at this very time her uncle Mordecai who raised her because Esther’s parents both were dead. This girl was an orphan. It’s important to think about that when we get to one of the main points that God wants to make, utilizing her life and the life of her uncle Mordecai because Esther had suffered a great loss is what God showed me. This was a lady who knew what it meant to lose something. When we get to the point about her letting go and letting God, it’s like, God wants us to know, “This wasn’t just anybody letting go and letting God. This was somebody who was all too familiar with the pain and the suffering of loss.” Her uncle Mordecai and Esther are both Jewish, even though they’re in Persia at this time. The Jews had been carried off there and they were part of that. They stayed there in Persia and she was raised there by her uncle Mordecai.

She was one of the virgins who was taken. Long story short, out of all the beautiful virgins that the king could have chosen, God put it in his heart and gave Esther. The Bible says, “Abundant favor.” The king chose her. Not only did she have favor with the king, but she had favor with everyone inside that palace was like, “We don’t know what it is. We love this lady. What can we do for you? How can we serve you? You’re the best.” It wasn’t her. It was the favor of God in her life. That was amazing.

Her uncle Mordecai had a position outside of the king’s gate. He overheard a plot that two of the kings officials who were very close to him, plotted is death. There was an assassination attempt on the king’s life and Mordecai informed Esther what he overheard. They had a trial. They come to find out these two guys were guilty. They were going to kill the king as soon as they had the chance. At the time, Mordecai was given the wisdom from God to tell Esther, “Don’t let it be known that you’re Jewish.” This is how you know God goes before you because who would have known that was important other than God?

TOT 89 | Let God
Let God: God has a will and a purpose. He has a divine plan for everybody’s individual life.

She did what Mordecai said and obeyed him like she did when she was a younger girl. One day, the king decides to promote a guy named Haman, this is afterward, and Haman seems fine to the king. When he promotes him and comes to find out, Haman has a deep hatred for Mordecai because Mordecai refused to bow to him. Mordecai was like the three Hebrew boys, “I don’t care if your name is Nebuchadnezzar or it’s me, Haman.” The point is we don’t bow and serve any other God, except Yahweh. If that means death, so be it because we’re not going to bow the knee to a false God.

You are going to love the dedication. That demonstration and dedication of some of the Jews, some of the people of God is wonderful. Mordecai refused to bow. Haman in his wrath and then in his authority said, “He’s not going to lay hands on Mordecai. He found out Mordecai was Jewish. He said he’s going to kill every Jew in that province.” The king gave him the authority to do so. He used some trickery. He lied to the king and told half-truths to get the king to take off his signet ring and gives Haman the authority to do that, not knowing that his wife, Esther is also Jewish.

It’s like, you just said, “Off with her head.” Why would you do that? It’s amazing that during this time, the king had not called for Queen Esther. They didn’t sleep at the same time. Back in those days, with their wives all the time, he hadn’t called her to come into where he was and his hoarders in quite some time. To the point that Esther might’ve been thinking, “He left his last wife. I hope he’s not going to do that to me. What did I do? Did I say something wrong?” Can you imagine, ladies, but it wasn’t that?

Apparently, he was busy with something else and distracted. I don’t know what it was. It hasn’t been revealed to me when I’m reading the Bible. Mordecai found out what Haman did and so did all the Jews. The whole towns, cities, provinces are in mourning. They are dressing in sackcloth and ashes because they are told that on a particular day, men, women, and children who are Jews will be killed, destroyed, and annihilated without mercy. They have no right to defend themselves and everything they own and possess will be taken as plunder from their enemies.

That’s a lot to swallow. Everybody’s mourning at that time that’s Jewish. They’re freaked out. They’re scared, perhaps even for a good reason, because the king’s decree cannot be revoked or reversed in the Persian Empire and that’s where they were. This is where we’ll start to read a little bit of the word of God. When Mordecai found out, now he wants to get in touch with Esther. Her husband, whose signet ring sealed on this decree.

Mordecai told this to somebody who worked for Esther. He told him the whole story, including the exact amount of money Haman had promised to pay into the royal treasury for the destruction of the Jews. Mordecai gave him a copy of the decree issued in Susa that calls for the death of all Jews. They even were going to kill their babies in front of them. Mordecai asked him to show it to Esther and explain to her everything that’s going on. Mordecai also asked her attendant to direct Esther to go to the king to beg for mercy and plead for her people. I’m reading from the New Living Translation.

Her attendant returned to her with Mordecai’s message. Look at Esther’s response. “Esther tells her attendant, ‘Go back and relay this message to Mordecai. All the king’s officials, even the people in the provinces know that anyone who appears before the king and his inner court without being invited is doomed to die. Unless the king holds out his golden scepter. The king has not called for me to come to him for 30 days.’” Esther is shaking in her boots like, “You’re telling me to go to the king.”

She is his wife. She knows what happened to his last wife. They’re not maybe necessarily on the best of terms since he hasn’t even asked if she is dead or alive in the last 30 days. That’s questionable right there and then they have a rule. Their rules can’t be revoked that if the king doesn’t call for you and you come barging into that place, it’s death by execution. That’s strong right there. Esther is not unfamiliar with death. She’s lost their parent and now she’s facing losing her own life. It’s like, she knows she had favor at one point in time, but he’s looking like favor was not so fair because he hasn’t called her.

TOT 89 | Let God
Let God: God is not a respecter of persons. What He did for Esther, He is willing and able to do for you and I.

This is questionable right here, especially with a house full of other women. Esther is shaking in her boots and Mordecai is focused. It says in Esther 4:13, “Mordecai sent this reply to Esther, ‘Don’t think for a moment that because you’re in the palace, you will escape when all the other Jews are killed. If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for such a time as this?’”

He opens up her understanding to, “I hear all your little natural things about the natural laws and no one’s ignoring that.” No one is ignoring the decree that was made that says, “They’re doomed. Let’s not forget God. Perhaps the whole reason you will ever made queen is not for you to win a fancy crown and prance around the palace in your authority and royal garments. Perhaps there is a greater kingdom purpose that’ll bless not only you but the Jews and keep alive the lineage that Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah, will come through as savior of the entire world. Perhaps your purpose is greater than what you think.”

When he reminds her of God, that God sits high and looks low. When he starts to remind her that God has a will and He has a purpose. He has a divine plan for everybody’s individual life. When she meditates on God, when she was reminded of God, this same Esther who was saying, “I don’t know what to tell you all.” It’s like, “Everyone’s going to die.” “My husband is not calling for me.” This lady is so human. I love the Bible for not holding any punches and giving them to us in no uncertain terms. You can see her humanity.

Esther sent this reply to Mordecai, “Go and gather together all the Jews of Susa and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day.” She’s reminded of God. Now she’s reminding everybody else a God, “We can pray and fast.” Her maids and I will do the same, she said and then, “Though it is against the law, I will go to see the king. If I must die, I must die.” Mordecai went away and did everything as Esther had ordered him. I love the fact because these are not people who are not aware of the problem. These are not people who do not know the seriousness of the problem. God knows that there are things that we have challenges with letting go and letting God because it is very important. For some of us, it can be a matter of life and death. The very challenge can be in the area of hell.

For other people, it may not be your literal life, but it’s your quality of life. You love your child. It’s like, “Who hit the right rock when you hit that one? Better me, than you touch them.” God knows this. He knows how you love, how you care and what concerns you. He knows the severity of it more than he’s even revealed to you. Perhaps he’s even held back some things to save your sanity and not tell you everything. God is so good than when she remembered him, she got all the people to fast, remember God and focused on God. That’s why God started off this series, talking to us about who He is and calls on us to remember Him, His love for us and how he never fails.

This woman lets go, and she lets God with full knowledge of the consequences. Long story short, she saves the Jews. God gives wisdom. He gives favor to Esther. Her husband doesn’t have her killed. He holds out the golden scepter. He hangs Haman on a gallow that he built for Mordecai to kill him. Esther has Haman killed. She orders that all of his ten sons be killed. His house gets turned over to Mordecai, and then the whole curse gets reversed. The Jews now have an order where they are able to go out, kill, store, and annihilate their enemies, plunder their goods. That’s where the Feast Purim is from and the Jews celebrate that to this day. Even some Christians celebrate it.

God turned the whole thing around. She let go and let God. She saved her life and theirs lives. She eradicated an enemy that was in there that hated the Jewish people. Hence, even God using her to help save the way for the Messiah who would come. He tried to cut off all the Jews. It’s like, “That’s crazy. Jesus is Jewish. You can’t do that. You can’t wipe out the Jewish race.” God is good. He turned that whole thing around. On the very day that they were ordered to kill all the Jews, the Jews end up killing all of them, plus people became Jewish because they were in fear when they figured out the queen is Jewish and the king is in love with this lady.

“I’m Jewish. I always did like the Jews.” You want to jump on that bandwagon. “I’d been one of them. I’d been the first one. Give me the bandwagon. I’m getting on it. When do we do the day of atonement?” It was safer to be a Jew at that time. It’s a wonderful news. The good news for us is God is not a respecter of persons. What He did for Esther, He is willing and able to do for you and I. God is the same God. He’s the same yesterday, today, and forevermore. The way that He had a plan and went before them and got them out of that very trouble killed those, and came against those who came against them is the same way He’ll kill that cancer, that divorce and that thing that’s trying to come against you.

We’re going to continue on with our series. We’re not done yet. We’re going to get everything God wants for us to get. Until then, I love you. God bless you and keep you. If anyone has not made Jesus their Lord and savior, I want to urge you. He loves you so very much. You can trust Him with your whole life. I want to invite you to declare to Him, “Lord, I believe you’re the son of God. I believe you died for my sins and rose again on the third day for my justification. I receive you as my Lord and savior. Give me the fullness of my inheritance. When you promise that as for me and my house, we will be saved when I believe in you. Be in unto me according to your word, in Jesus’ name. I love you, guys. Talk to you soon.
