The Sceptor of Protection
I felt led to read the book of Ester. I have read it several times so I knew that this unction to read it again meant that I was to get a right now word from it. Isn't amazing how something that was written so long ago can be a parallel to what you are walking out in the present! What stood out this time was how that after the king had decreed it; it was going to happen; but when Ester sought mercy, her petition was heard and although the decree was going to be carried out another decree, a sort of amendment to the one the that had gone forth was created. Even though the weapon had been formed and had even launched God raised up the Jews for the time of battle and they were able to receive strength and stand. What was suppose to be their destruction was their deliverance. God is great and greatly to be praised!
