Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"Our God is the WayMaker"
"If it pleases the king, let a royal decree go out from him, and let it be recorded in the laws of the Persians and the Medes, so that it will not be altered, that Vashti shall come no more before King Ahasuerus; and let the king give her royal position to another who is better than she."
Our Breakfast this morning brings a glimpse of God's plan emerging from a drunken party. In his wounded pride and drunkenness, King Ahasuerus divorces his Queen Vashti; and will be "giving her royal position to another who is better than she." God's plan "made a way" for Esther to become Queen.
This lesson shows us that our God is the WayMaker, Who makes a way where there is no way...
He uses all events and all the ways of man, both good and evil; to make "... all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose (Rom.8:28).
Listen up Warrior! Our Commander and King is the WayMaker, Who works all things according to the counsel of His will, (Eph.1:11-12). In other words, our Commander and King makes all the good stuff and bad stuff in life work in us to build us and mold us into His likeness. Our part in this is to follow, obey, and imitate Him; which isn't too hard because we love Him more than we love our life (Luke 14:26).
Breakfast today is the pathway for Esther to travel from the house of a servant to the Palace of the King - because she followed, imitated, and obeyed God.....
This is our Pathway my fellow Warrior; following our Waymaker and our King through all the stuff of life, on our way to the Palace which is prepared for us - our new address, Hallelujah Blvd, Kingdom of God! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side
