Esther and Deliverance A WORD FROM THE LORD “Mordecai recorded these events, and he sent letters to all the Jews throughout the provinces of King Xerxes, near and far, to have them celebrate annually the fourteenth and fifteenth days of the month of Adar as the time when the Jews got relief from their enemies, and as the month when their sorrow was turned into joy and their mourning into a day of celebration. He wrote them to observe the days as days of feasting and joy and giving presents of food to one another and gifts to the poor.” Esther 9:20-22 A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT When we also were doomed to certain death, God in His mercy rescued us by the gift of a Savior. Jesus is our reason for joy and celebration every day! WE’RE PRAYING FOR YOU “Remind us, Lord Jesus, that no matter how dark our days and how difficult the challenges we face, we live each day in the joy of Your resurrection. Amen.” RENEWAL MOMENT Take a deep breath. Exhale Slowly. “Lord, have mercy.” Thanksgiving for the gift of rescue from death! MARKER OF WELLBEING: Spiritual As I grow in God’s grace of Spiritual GOODNESS, I am finding joy in RECEPTIVITY to His gifts, maturing and growing in Christ.
