Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"From Mourning to a Holiday"
".... as the days on which the Jews had rest from their enemies, as the month which was turned from sorrow to joy for them, and from mourning to a holiday; that they should make them days of feasting and joy, of sending presents to one another and gifts to the poor."
Our Final Breakfast Date with our Commander and King this morning, is a picture of our Life! The Jews had rest from their enemies, because they followed Mordecai and Esther - who were led by Almighty God. The Jews were led through many days of sorrow to the destination of a Holiday (Holy Day) of celebration and rejoicing.
In Battle, the Warrior stands and fights through the opposition of the enemy, day after day, because the Warrior sees beyond the sorrow of the present to the Holy Day waiting for them at the end of the fight.
Listen up Warrior! Every beginning has an ending! We follow our King and Commander Jesus Who fought through the ultimate sorrows of life that led Him to the cross - 'cause He knew, that on that "Friday of sorrow" Sunday morning was just ahead; the dawning of Resurrection, the completed Promise of Gen.3:15; the enemy would be crushed and destroyed! Ooooh Rah!
Yes, weeping may endure for the night but joy comes in the morning (Psa.30:5).
Our King saw the joy of "Sunday Morning" set before Him, and this helped Him endure the Cross (Heb.12:2)
We Follow our Commander and King, the Man of Sorrows Who is well acquainted with grief; (Isa.53:3), Who leads us, walks with us, and feels us, as we walk together through the "Friday's" of life on earth - towards the "Resurrection Sunday's" of Every battle we engage with our enemy.
Our Victory's are Holy Days. Days to celebrate like Purim is for the Jews.
The Awe and Wonder of God working in the Jews drew many people to repentance and relationship with God. The Awe and Wonder of our King Jesus working in us will also bring many people we lead in this world to Christ.
The Warrior is quick to share their "Days of Purim" with others! As we "tell the stories" of what great things our King has done in our life - Many will come the know Our King as Their King. This is our Mission!
We Remember What We Rehearse - and We Rehearse What We Remember.
Tell your story, Warrior! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
