Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
"What the enemy means for evil, God Allows for Good"
"Then the king said to Haman, “Hurry, take the robe and the horse, as you have suggested, and do so for Mordecai the Jew who sits within th king’s gate! Leave nothing undone of all that you have spoken.”
Our Breakfast this morning is "an appetizer" for tomorrow's Breakfast. What Haman meant for evil God Allowed for Good.
Haman's evil desire to hang Mordecai had not even left his lips before the King began to honor Mordecai - and Haman spoke words of honor instead destruction on Mordecai.
As I chewed on this Truth this morning, I thought about the Garden of Eden. The enemy used the evil deception of sin on Adam and Eve. God allowed this to bring the Good of the Seed of the woman to destroy the bondage of sin.(Gen.3:15)
He used the evil of the brothers of Joseph to bring the Good of life in time of famine for Israel (Gen.45:7)
He used Israel's bondage in Egypt to show off His miracles and His great deliverance of Israel from bondage (Ex.12:31).
He used our King's suffering and the Cross to bring the Good of the Gospel of Salvation and Redemption to mankind.
And He does this with us today my fellow Warrior.
"And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose" (Rom.8:28).
Our Commander uses the evil devices of our enemy to build our faith and character. He uses the devil and his crew for target practice! We fire our weapon (the Bible) with the bullet (verse of scripture); and hit the target of sin; crushing and destroying it!
This is why we "count it all joy when we fall into trials...." (James 1:2-4); because we know trials are builders of our Faith and Character. Greater Trials build Greater Faith and Character.
We know the "end game" of every fight for righteousness - we will triumph over every evil device. We've been given power and authority over all the power of the enemy (Luke 10:19); and we deploy that power upon every "Goliath" we face. Ooooh Rah!
What the enemy means for evil to destroy us, Our Commander and King allows to Build us as His Warriors in the Kingdom of God! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
