READ

Esther 1:1-22


PONDER

It shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.” Hosea 1:10.


SOVEREIGN grace can make strangers into sons, and the Lord here declares his purpose to deal thus with rebels, and make them know what he has done. Beloved reader, the Lord has done this in my case; has he done the like for you? Then let us join hands and hearts in praising his adorable name.

Some of us were so decidedly ungodly that the Lord’s Word most truly said to our conscience and heart, “Ye are not my people.” In the house of God, and in our own homes, when we read the Bible, this was the voice of God’s Spirit in our soul, “Ye are not my people.” Truly a sad condemning voice it was. But now, in the same places, from the same ministry and Scripture, we hear a voice, which saith, “Ye are the sons of the living God.” Can we be grateful enough for this? Is it not wonderful? Does it not give us hope for others? Who is beyond the reach of almighty grace? How can we despair of any, since the Lord has wrought so marvellous a change in us?

He who has kept this one great promise will keep every other; wherefore, let us go forward with songs of adoration and confidence.


Spurgeon, C.H (1834-1892)


PRAY

After a moment of quietness, let the Spirit of God lead you as you pray for 5 people who you would love to see become followers of Jesus Christ, or people who you know have strayed from God. Name them before the Lord, asking God to reveal Himself to them, and that He would draw them in grace, mercy and love to trust and follow Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.  


Close your prayer time with the Lord’s Prayer:


Our Father, who art in heaven, 

Hallowed be Thy name. 

Thy kingdom come. 

Thy will be done 

on earth as it is in heaven. 

Give us this day 

our daily bread. 

And forgive us our debts, 

as we forgive our debtors. 

And lead us not into temptation, 

but deliver us from evil. 

For Thine is the kingdom, 

and the power, and the glory, 

for ever. Amen.
