Scripture: Esther 7 and 8

Faith in action.  Esther made a plan to save her people.  She set things up so she could reveal the truth to the king at just the right time. Her plan was successful. 

Her plan was successful because it lined up with what the Lord had called her to do.

Then Mordecai was given freedom to write to the Jews in the name of the king. He could write whatever he wanted in order to save them. He wrote that they should defend themselves.

They rejoiced! And people feared them and joined with them. It was a good day to be a Jew. It’s always a good day when you’re where the Lord wants you.

Scripture: 2 Chronicles 7

The house of the Lord was finished. The presence of the Lord moved in. The people praised the Lord for His steadfast love.

And He told them that if He ever sends drought or locust or pestilence on them, then this:

This isn’t necessarily a promise to America like it was to the land of Israel, but we can still apply it to our hearts. We all need to humble ourselves, pray, seek His face, and turn from our wicked ways.

He will hear our prayer, and in His steadfast love He will answer.


Journal: Write a prayer to God and humble yourself before Him. Pray for other Christians all around the world.
