Click here to listen: The Power of Remembering
In this final lesson of Esther’s Call II we learn how to remember a deliverance from God. Purim is the name for the two days of feasting, rejoicing and sending gifts — the alternative to taking spoil. Read Esther 9:27-32. These days are to be observed through all generations so the Jews and their seed would keep the memory of this deliverance from Haman’s plot of destruction. It is important to remember the restoration of broken things, to mark the dates where God intervened in human events and worked a mighty deliverance. But how do we remember?
If we are not this someone, then we know of someone who has a testimony. When we hear them though, we listened and we heard no joy, no celebration of God’s work in the situation. We maybe wondered where God fit in the story and what He did because the testimony was so full of struggle. For Purim to continue through generations there was a way it was done. I want to offer these ways (with biblical example) for us to consider and apply.
Sooner or later, we have to separate from the pain of that situation to tell the story of God’s deliverance in a spirit of rejoicing. Let’s get to healing, Kingdom Queens. If you’re in the “Red Cross Tent” right now, don’t try to push your way up and out. Stay there and heal…so you can tell it! Amen.
