It's Tough Being a Woman.....week 7

James 4:8
God loves her, and what an awesome plan He has for oher life and how He still reveals it through the Bible.

the king had liittle interest in anything that wasn't centered on him. His self-centeredness was his weak spot...

Esther approached the negotiating table with little or no experience, yet she accomplishes the seemingly impossible ....the side-stepping of an irreversible law. The providence of a sovereign God was the overarching reason for her success.

The Holy Spirits power was surely at work in Persia that night Esther just didn't realize it.1 Peter 5:8 warns out enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion lookiing for someone to devour.

....the effectiveness of our enemy to deceive people into thinking that Christianity is bondage, but his path, disguised as human independence, is freedom.

Satan our adversary promises freedom but after gaining trust delivers such destructive entangplements that his victim feels life bieng squeezed otu of him. God on the other hand delivers us to a spacious place where He rescues us because He delights in us

No one comes into teh full throttle poer of their destiny all at once.

Sometiems we take for granted what we have until we see that someone else admires it

End of Esther 7 Jews go from the depths of despair to the death of despair

....prayed for God to fill me and thrill me

The book of Esther....where evil threatens to win and reversals whirl and spin, where orphans become queens and villians trick kings.

...great lives don't always seem great while we're living them. They may seem embarrassingly regular. Seeking to be extraordinary isn't the answer because great lives are never acheived by making greatness the goal.

Haman, a man poisoned by his own pursuit of greatness, driven by selfish ambition, his life ended tragically.

God given personality is goign to propel her

Every gift is a trust placed in human hands by a holy God

Spending ourselves for something infinately greater still fans our parched souls with the God-given need to matter, but releives us of the relentless pain of being teh "It" person at the center of it

embrace teh glory of God as our purpose

least act renders the ordinary, extraordinary

acts of high worhip when offered in teh name of Christ. He beholds the sight likea breathtaking work of art, tilting His head to study each subtle detail. (Mark 14:6)

Christ summons the disillusioned to the paradoxical bliss of spilling life lavishly, sacrificially for the glory of God and the good of man.

To live for the greatness of God is to live the great life
