Topic: Esther’s Glory: Issue 11- My God- The Grand Schemer
Bible Reading: Esther 6
Memory Verse: Esther 6:6b (NKJV)
Now Haman thought in his heart, “Whom would the king delight to honor more than me?”
Good evening ladies and gentlemen! How are you doing? How has your day been? Today is Wednesday, the week is quickly drawing to an end! I hope and pray that you are filled with joy, love, peace and hope!
Today, we are continuing our journey through the book of Esther! Today, we are looking at the topic: “My God- The Grand Schemer.” Do you know that God’s moves and tactics are better than all chess Grandmasters put together? God’s ways are higher, better and greater than anything we can think or imagine! That is one of the wonderful things about God! His Might, Power and Love for His children is indescribable and unfathomable. Well, let us get into the message to read what the Holy Spirit has in store for us today!
In our lives, we strive to live a Christ-like life. We constantly are facing battles of choosing between what is right and what is wrong! We take decisions, each day, to serve God and obey His words. We focus on achieving our utmost best in the assignments He has given us! Once we live a life for God and of God; the enemy’s gives us more attention. The enemy would try all the schemes and tricks- he thinks he has- to destroy you! My dear brother or sister in Christ, if you are facing persecution or going through a very tough time, know that you have something great in you! The enemy does not want to see you bloom and flourish! But you have a God! Oh yes you do! Your God is the Grand Schemer! You may think that you are suffering alone; ooh but contrary to this belief, God has already set a plan in motion for you! The plans and tactics of God are unknow to us! Honestly, even if they were known to us; we still wouldn’t be able to fathom them. All we have to do is Trust in Him.
Let us take a look at Mordecai and Haman. From last Thursday’s message, we saw the dynamics of their relationship [Have you read last week’s messages? If you haven’t, do well to go to the Sammie’s Daily Dose page on our website (www.sammiesdailydose.com) to read the messages]. We established that Mordecai lived a life of God; Haman, on the other hand, was threatened by this. He wanted Mordecai to be killed (with the king’s blessing). God had other plans! Haman thought that he could get the king to be on his side! But God had already planned to honor Mordecai! Guess who God used to honor Mordecai? Yup! The king!
My brother and sister in Christ, do not loose hope! Continue living for Christ! You serve a living God who has a plan set in motion just for you! God loves you so much; He would not let any harm come close to you! Today, rejoice! Why? Well, you have a Grand Schemer as a Father! No need to fret! No need to worry! The plans God has for you is greater than you can imagine.
Preparing for university, I was very excited! My plan of my life was set in motion (Well, at that time I thought it was). Despite all that the enemy had done to destroy my path; God was faithful! I was so excited to move to the UK for school! Away from my nagging parents- that sounded like heaven! A week before school reopened; my parents came to inform me of their decision- I was staying in Ghana. At that moment, I thought my life was over. I became sad and dealt with a lot of emotional and mental issues. Right from the day my A levels came out, the enemy fought very hard to see me fail. But my God had another plan! According to His Grand Scheme, He was about to bless me and lead me to serve Him. In 3 months of starting Ashesi, a team (consisting of 4 of my classmates and myself) were selected to represent Ashesi University at the Hult Prize Regional Finals in Dubai. About six months after this, I launched Sammie’s Ministries. Each year, despite the struggles, I see God’s Master Plan (in my life) work! And He makes it beautiful!
My dear brother and sister in Christ, God is there! Continue to live in Him and for Him! Sit back and see God’s master plan for your life; come to life. God bless you!
1. Ask God to reveal Himself to you.
2. Ask for the in-filling of the Holy Spirit.
3. Ask God to help you due subdue your flesh and remain firmly grounded in Him.
4. Ask God for favor over your life and that of your family
5. Ask God to continue to help and fuel ministers, pastors, prophets, teachers, etc. who are proclaiming God every day
6. Pray for the church and the Christian Faith.
End with a time of praise and worship!
Have a wonderful evening and let God inspire you!
I thank you for my life. I thank you for giving me another beautiful day. I ask that you guide me and protect me. I pray that I will choose you in every situation that I face. And that my life will be a testimony and an example to many that I have Christ living in me. Thank you, Lord, for sending your son to die on the cross and wipe my sins away. I lift your name high for you are Alpha and Omega. Amen!
The prayer below is for anyone who does not know God or maybe has been apart from God for a while. God is here to pour His favor over your life. All you have to do is call out to Him. Make that decision today!
I come to you today as a sinner. I admit that I am a sinner. I believe that Jesus is your Son and He came on to this earth to die for my sins. Dear Lord, let your Son come and fill me. Lord, I ask that He cleanses me off my sins. I am ready to stand for you and profess your Name. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
If you repeated this prayer with all the sincerity of your heart, congratulations!! You are now a part of God’s family. Welcome to the greatest family ever. Heaven is jubilating on your arrival. Your fellow brothers and sisters are also excited to have you on board.
Being a child of God is a wonderful thing. The road might not always be easy, but God is with you each and every step of the way. Guiding you, helping you and encouraging up. You will never regret this decision; I can assure you of that. Two things I would recommend for you to do are;
1. Get yourself a Bible (in a version you understand) and meditate on it day and night. In Joshua 1:8, we are told that when you meditate on the Word day and night, you will be prosperous and successful.
2. Find a Bible- believing church to attend and fellowship with other Christians. This would help you grow spiritually.
I am excited that you made this decision. Welcome! If you would like some help or more understanding into anything, you can leave a message (adding your email address) and I would be willing and happy to help you out!
