Esther 9,10:

I didn’t get a chance to write on the reading of Esther, but what an amazing book. The Godly wisdom of Mordecai. The courage and boldness of Esther. The revenge of God, even a glimpse at the sense of humor in God (Ch.6). It’s so easy for us to feel cheated and robbed when things go against us, but this story is an illustration of how God will always be there for His people. His word will stand true, “He will never leave us, nor forsake us”. He is our rock, shelter and refuge when we lean on Him and His ways rather than turning to our own ways. We have to remember God has put us all here to glorify His name, so He will bring us through the fiery tribulation in order that His name may be lifted up and glorified, and so the blind will see and the deaf will hear.

Luke 19:

The first story of this chapter is of Zacchaeus the tax stealing sinner that was redeemed and reconciled. This story really speaks volumes to me on all levels. Our views of people are so different and judgemental compare to the way Jesus saw people. Verses 8-10 shows the complete change of heart by Zacchaeus. I think just reading over this once you can miss the significance of this mans change and salvation. But we are talking about the type of man, that money has been his idol and God for many years. A man who probably did anything to gain wealth, power and status. But yet His one encounter with Jesus leads him to giving away half of his wealth and repay dishonesty x4…!? That is a complete change of heart and mind. That type of transformation can only happen when people truly taste and see that the Lord is Good! Money immediately became insignificant to Zacchaeus. We must be faithful and diligent in how we cultivate, plant and water seed. With God all things are possible and Im sure the people we least expect are the ones God is truly going to move through. We need to work on seeing through God’s eyes, not our own.
