Bible Reading: Esther 10
Memory Verse: Esther 10: 3a (NKJV)
For Mordecai the Jew was second to King Ahasuerus, and was great among the Jews and well received by the multitude of his brethren,
Good evening ladies and gentlemen! How are you all doing? How was your day! I pray that your day was great and that you were able share the Gospel to other, through your attitude and behavior! Without going on and on, let’s get right into today’s message! Today’s message is a continuation of yesterday- helping to uncover God’s promises to His children!
This week’s passage (Esther 10) helps us to understand how God honors those who honor Him! Today, we are looking at the fact that God makes us great- even greater than our peers, colleagues, seniors, etc. Once you choose Him, He would continue to lift you up from one level to another! Your final destination and the increase in level/ status, would surprise you!
As a child of God, why worry about your current circumstance! You are a victor! You have won the battle through Christ! God is about to reward you for choosing Him and diligently following His will! God can take you from your lowest point into something wild! Look He can take a shepherd to become king! What can’t God do for you?
Look at Mordecai’s life! He was a regular Jew who decided to choose God in every situation and circumstance he finds himself. For that, he suffered persecution! Even then, he stood for God! With that, God lifted him from the enemy’s snare and blessed Him! One of the blessings being that He was great among the Jews.
In our context, the Holy Spirit is encouraging us to keep choosing God in every situation- no what you may gain or lose! God is faithful! He sees and hears everything you do for Him! He sees all the sacrifices you make for the kingdom! He will surely reward you- not only in heaven but here on earth!
My dear brother and sister in Christ, you are great because you are a child of God! Go forth and shine in your land! God has made you greater than your peers, classmates, colleagues, work mates, etc. Watch Him as He rolls out His perfect plan of your life!
Stand firm in Faith! The battle is almost over; in fact, it is over! We have conquered the enemy! We have claimed all that the enemy has stolen or tried to steal! Look at the wonderful things God is about to do for you; because you Honored Him! Hallelujah!
1. Thank God for victory!
2. Ask the Holy Spirit to continue to live and work in you!
3. Ask the Holy Spirit to continue to guide and strengthen you to keep choosing Christ!
4. Thank God for what He is about to do in your life!

6. Pray for the church and the Christian Faith.
7. Pray for Christians worldwide facing persecution.
8. Pray for Sammie’s Ministries.
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!
