Mordecai, Esther, Queen Esther discussed on Pray the Word with David Platt


Pray the word with David Platt is a resource from radical .NET. Ester chapter two verse 22 and this came to the knowledge of mordecai, and he told it to Queen Esther, an Astra told the king in the name of mordecai. So just to make sure you have the context in the beginning of Esther chapter two, Esther is made queen, and then her cousin mordecai the end of ester two discovers a plot between some people to kill the king and that's where we pick up in verse 22. This came in the knowledge of mordecai and he told the Queen Esther an ASTRO told the king in the name of mordecai. And this saves the king's life and as we will keep reading it Esther, this was a significant moment that will come back later when the king decides to exalt mordecai. So I want to lead us to pray according to this first. In light of what we prayed according to Esther one, so an ester one we talked about how God is orchestrating all kinds of things in the world, everything in the world ultimately, for his purpose. Here in Esther chapter two will remind that yes, God is doing that and God is calling each of us to play a part in that purpose. So mordecai was in the right place at the right time to hear this news and he was faithful to tell it to Esther, who was then faithful to tell it to the king in the name of mordecai. And when I read that, I just thank God. In my life today, I want to do everything that you call me to do that your spirit leads me to do to look at my life today and think nothing's by accident. Like everything by appointment that you are leading that you are guiding in every moment. So help me to walk and step with your spirit at all times. And to encourage you to look at your day the same way that God is working in so many different ways in you and through you today that you may not realize so can we just pray God help us to be faithful? Help us to hear your spirit and work in our hearts and to follow your leadership according to your spirit, your word, help us to walk and step with your spirit. We confess God we don't know all that you are doing. We know that we know that you are doing so many things we can't see or can't know. We trust that you are using our lives to accomplish your purposes in the world. So we pray that you would help us to obey you today to be willing, moldable, humble, obedient instruments in your hands. For purposes, we don't even see for things we don't even know you're doing. God help us. We pray. What an awesome picture God. Our lives today instruments in your hands as you are accomplishing your good purposes in the world. So help us to the faithful instruments we pray. And God, we pray for unreached people all the time on this podcast. Today for the tajiks of Uzbekistan. Almost 2 million of them so little knowledge of the gospel among the tajik people specifically in Uzbekistan got a pray for the spread of the gospel of them and God we pray. That you would use our lives as a part of that purpose. Even our prayers right now to hear our prayers and answer them we pray sin laborers to the tajik of Pakistan and even as we pray that we pray that you would raise up laborers to go to them and we say in our lives, show us if we're those laborers. God, we want to play whatever part you call us to play. We want to do all that you call us to do. And your purposes. Right around us and our lives and our families and our churches and our neighborhoods, community cities. God we pray to help us to be faithful to you today. And to faithfully follow you wherever you lead us in the days ahead. Help us to walk in step with your spirit at all times and do all that you call us to do knowing that you are working in ways we could never imagine. And Jesus name we pray. Amen..
