I believe we can all relate to this on some level. Before I accepted Christ, I tended to be skeptic about every single thing because of all the evil in the world. I was part of it, but I tended to compare myself to others and think “I’m not that bad” (even though eventually I DID get “that” bad).
Without God’s grace and love, our flesh guides us, and we are full of sin (as above) but now that I’m in the light, I feel pure and my thoughts are not consumed by outside (wordly) influences. The more I read the bible, the more I cringe at the world’s moral and values. We are new! And our sins are as white as snow when we repent. (Isaiah 1:18)
What I would like to point out is, we should always strive to purify ourselves. God once told me that I had covered my relationship in dirt and it was time to dig up and get it clean. How many things in your life are under the dirt? God wants to help you make all the areas of your life NEW!
I woke up at 4:20am and I couldn’t sleep so I decided to read the bible because God spole to me earlier so I wanted to be attentive. I open to Esther and read the whole story. Then I read the summary so I could make sure I didn’t miss anything.
And indeed I got reassurance! 🙂
Yesterday God reminded me of what I’ve been thru and it can be best summarized as
Remember – medidate – grow
And reading Esther gives insight to the future. It’s like He’s saying I GOT YOU and it couldn’t have come at a better time because this week I’m going to speak to the lawyer about my documentation to get back into the states. I’m not worried about it but my father is pushing me to get back already, so it’s like Esther when she fasted for 3 days to go talk to the King. I was thinking about fasting this week, so maybe this was a sign? Either way, I trust God and His timing. He’s never failed and He won’t start now.
Thank you Lord for this!! I love waking up in the middle of the night for lessons!
