Praying this finds you well and prospering. Want to give you an update on where the Lord is taking Esther’s Warriors Ministry. Your commitment to prayer brings much fruit! Never think that the Lord does not hear each and every prayer.
We are in times of great trial but we are triumphant in Him! Faint not for this truly is our season. Esther’s is now connected to other ministries throughout the world. Many are ministries dedicated to caring for orphans in war torn, disease ridden countries.
I share with you today a picture of little Mathew who lives
In Esther’s Warriors Ministry, we began in 2012 ‘praying the states’ for healing for our Nation. Queen Esther went before the king to intercede for her people. We go before the King to intercede for our Nation ‘for such a time as this’ (Esther 4:14). We pray for each state in the order of admission to the Union and will continue. Our Nation more than ever needs consistent, diligent prayer cover state by state.
The change in your life begins with you. Take an inventory. Release what no longer serves your God given vision. Add what will enhance and grow your life in a positive direction. You only pass this way but once. Be quite selective about whom you invite to make this journey with you. Not everyone can go forward with you to where God is taking you now.
Let the old fall away as He directs. Some are in your life simply for a season. Do not hold tight to what or whom He may be releasing from your journey. Move forward.
God redeems the time. It is really amazing! Just as a new mother forgets the long wait and the travail of birth when she first holds her baby, so it is in many life situations. All the waiting, the long hard journey and the travail of birthing a vision gives way to such promise that the time that could appear wasted or lost is redeemed to become a time of joy. There is then little remembrance of the pain that went before.
If God has given you a vision, especially if it seems impossible in the natural, hold fast to
In this microwave society we can think that if something does not happen in a nano-second God must be saying no. He may be, but often He is just saying ‘wait.’ He may be working out something in your heart (for it is always a heart issue), the heart of another or in the situation. He may have something far better in store for you than what you can think or imagine.
Have you ever had a conversation with someone and something said, maybe just one word, shifts everything? It is as if a key opens the door to something you may have long forgotten or may have never even seen before. That key may bring you to a totally different place in your heart (for it is always a heart issue).
God often uses people to orchestrate His plan for your life. Despise not seemingly small beginnings. Pay attention. Listen. Do not judge. He is always working in your life. Do not miss it!
Life is a series of choices. Each choice, not matter how seemingly insignificant, builds on others and sets in motion those to come. Consider your choices carefully for from them will unfold the rest of your life.
If you commit to something, choose to follow through even if you do not feel like it. That is integrity. If you are in a challenging situation, choose the high road even if you would rather not. That is character. If you have been wronged, whether
The other day a person, who sits in church every Sunday, told me that they pass the same woman daily on their walk and have chosen not to say hello or even give her a smile. She appears unfriendly so they have decided that she will never respond and therefore they will never show any kindness to her.
WOW! Talk about heart issues (and it is always a heart issue!). I could not help but think that this very woman could probably use a kind word-not a lengthy conversation, just a simple hello or smile.
Things are not always as they appear. Truly, we only see in part. God alone sees the heart of another.
Show mercy and not judgment from your heart (for it is always a heart issue). To pass judgment only corrupts your heart and any work God may be doing in you. Stay Kingdom focused and seek His leading for your own life. Let Him change you from glory to glory. Do not change yourself from carnality to carnality.
