23 And the Lord said to her: “Two nations are in your womb, Two peoples shall be separated from your body; One people shall be stronger than the other, And the older shall serve the younger.”
Today’s inspiration: Life has to be lived prophetically. We need to take heed of what God speaks to us personally and what is being confirmed by pastors or other godly people in our life. Living according to God’s agenda should be the whole purpose of man. Jacob knows that, whilst in the mother’s womb, God spoke that his brother would serve him. Genesis 25:23. This is why Jacob earnestly looked for an opportunity to secure the birthright.
God also loved to turn our mess to a miracle for His glory. The Lord loved His people and will protect His people.
In Esther’s day there seemed to be no way out for her and His people the Jews. Mordecai and Esther understood the power of prayer and fasting. Esther 4:15. Esther proclaimed that she will risk petitioning to the king for the Jews. So she declared that if she perished she perish. God loved a leader who is willing to take risk for His people. Esther 4:15-16. Tables turned and there was triumph for the Jews. Prior to this, the king could not sleep and went through the chronicles and found Mordecai was not honoured for saving his life. Again there was a testimony for Mordecai. What Haman plotted to do against Mordecai, God honoured Mordecai and Haman who kept planning to remove Mordecai has to be called in by the king to honour him with best honour suggested by him. Esther 6.
When the King extends his sceptre, there is favour. What an honour for the Lord to extend His mighty sceptre from Zion for His people! They will rule in the midst of their enemies! Psalm 110:2.
Whatever you are going through right now, always remember that God will never forsake His people. It took Mordecai a lot of patience and perseverance before God intervenes. His timing is the best timing. There is a time for everything. God will turn your mess to a miracle. Whatever you are praying for, He will answer. No one can stand before you all the days of your life. Joshua 1:5. Cling to this prophetic word in your life and prosper in everything that you do including your health.
