DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Esther 1-3
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“So Esther was taken to King Ahasuerus, into his royal palace, in the tenth month, which is the month of Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign. The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti. Then the king made a great feast, the Feast of Esther, for all his officials and servants; and he proclaimed a holiday in the provinces and gave gifts according to the generosity of a king.” (Esther 2:16-18)

Our God is good to all people (Psalm 145:9), and God is always faithful to bless all His people who keep His commandments (Psalm 128:1). Amen. In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how King Ahasuerus dethroned Queen Vashti, Esther was made Queen of the Medes and the Persian Empire, and we also read about Mordecai, and how Haman plotted to destroy the Jews. As believers in God, it is always good and important for us, to not take for granted the blessings and the gifts that God has provided to us. That is, we should always value the blessings and the gifts of God, and we should always use them to serve God faithfully (Mark 11:22). Amen. By the grace of God, be sure to get saved by the Lord Jesus Christ, and to start receiving and getting your Crowns from God (1 Corinthians 9:25, 1 Thessalonians 2:19, 2 Timothy 4:8, James 1:12, 1 Peter 5:4, and Revelation 2:10). Amen. Truly, God loves all people, and God wants to save all the people of the world that will come to Him for eternal salvation (John 3:16-17). Today is the day of salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2 and Hebrews 3:12-15). Amen. If you are not yet saved by God, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved by God. Amen. May God bless you today, everyday, and forevermore in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
