Queen Esther's One Night With The King

My friends, I hope you are doing well and being blessed as I am!


As we celebrate Mother's Day tomorrow, and Rev. Price posed the question,"Who is your favorite queen in the Bible?", I immediately thought of Queen Esther as my favorite queen in the Bible. Queen Esther exemplified courageousness, faithfulness to God, and the love she had for her people. Esther, a young lady who was raised by her cousin, Mordecai, became the Queen of Persia. The importance of her story is that she had faith in God that He would deliver her people, the Jewish people, from the hands of Haman who wanted to destroy them. Esther went before the king and told the king exactly what she wanted him to do for her and her people. You see, my friends, she was being in obedience to God, she fasted, she had patience, she prayed and she had faith that God would allow the king to hear her. She stepped out on faith when she went before the king. If he was displeased with her, he would have killed her. That was a risk she took because she had enough faith that God was with her. As a result of her obedience to God, and her love for her people, the king gave her what she wanted, that is, set her people free from Haman, who wanted to destroy them.

My friends, Esther had only one night with the king and she was prepared to let him know what she needed for her people. Just the same Esther showed boldness, we must do the same. When opportunity knocks at our doors, we must be ready to say what we need, and when someone needs our help, we must do what God wants us to do. When we do not take the opportunity to be a witness for God or help someone in need, God is disappointed in us. You see, our fear, our timidity may cause someone to lose the little hope they were hanging on to because we did not have the courage to be that witness to them. We must be willing to fight for God's people, we must be willing to step up to the plate when we are needed and when we are called.

Remember what Paul told Timothy, God did not give us a spirit that makes us afraid but a spirit of power and love and self-control (2 Timothy 1:7). We need to start standing up for what is right, we need to start standing up and be a witness for God.

My friends, do what Esther did, she stepped out in faith. We must live in faith and we must step out in and on faith if we are to be obedient to and be blessed. We must always be steadfast with prayer. Prayer is powerful. God bless you.

Ta ta,
Therese from Belize

  20. From there, it is really an easy step to get players' account
    information from Microsoft should they be logged into Xbox Live.
    The latter of the two is particularly important, since there have been many cases of enormous companies suing people who are thought
    to have downloaded illegal files, based solely on their IP address.

  21. People should know very well what the lining joke means.
    Mego's entire future been dependent on this agreement because the company was now
    merely a shell with the powerhouse  it had once been. If he
    was confronted with an empty goal, he'd make an effort to hammer the ball into the far top
    corner as opposed to just roll it safely in. An interesting feature
    of 'Company of Heroes 2' is artillery cannons and guns can be a separate unit off their operators.

    Secondly I will argue the matter that could be to much
    wireless radiation just isn't best for your wellbeing and wellness and is
    also it to force a entire continent for this potential
    danger with no individual choice. People report physical, emotional and spiritual healings around
    the second day there will almost always be plenty.

    Infantry losses are automatically replaced anywhere
    for the battlefield after having a minute roughly of non-hostile interactions.
    Cooperative missions and single player challenges with all
    the Theater of War put in a nice touch to hold things going.
    I was giggling a bit because, heck, I'm *trained* to achieve this stuff, I knew every
    little trick he was using. This war game is focused on overpowering land and kicking but while you are
    doing this. When I look at my kids, my children, my pals and anyone
    I are in contact with I feel love and gratitude deeper than I have
    ever experienced before. Of the 100 books published in Canada, I expect 20 books to support the rest.
    H Macy failed 7 times, before his store in New York caught on. He doesn't want millions, just to get happy and
    survive. After researching a number of different Bluetooth helmets,
    I was thoroughly impressed using what I found within the Vega V-Tune Bluetooth motorcycle helmet for
    it's price. Researchers have says optimism and pessimism are very
    stable traits – unless we choose to change them. He was a very, very hard worker and would memorize all with the locations of Pittsburgh's businesses and faces of important men. Like the
    initial game was at launch, the Eastern Front introduces gamers just to two armies on the beginning while using possibility of more being added in with expansion packs or DLC.
    Even should they do, we could choose not to have to have the
    world's approval for everything we do. If you don't
    know where you're heading, just check around for your life since your unconscious mind has had to create a vision for each sounding your lifetime to ensure that you to function. [The TV series are] like novels within the 19th-century.
    Regardless of what strategy you utilize, Company of Heroes
    2 is surely an extremely impressive and enjoyable game that doesn't only provides
    a good amount of enjoyment and excitement but shows that the series keeps getting better with each new installment.
    The much-touted 'General Winter' feature is everything it turned out promised to get, the battles just as graphically
    brutal because you might remember from the original Company of Heroes, and also the little details that
    immerse you into the game world like the idle chatter between soldiers continue to be there.
    You could claim that all we're doing is creating short-term pleasure from everyday things, and you also
    would be right. We are actually seeing higher performing Direct
    - X 10 Graphics GPUs from top makers for example NVIDIA with their 8800 series, such as the NVIDIA Ge - Force 8800 GTX and Ge -
    Force 8800 GTS.
