DAILY BIBLE STUDY: Esther 8-10
VERSE OF THE DAY:
“Then Queen Esther, the daughter of Abihail, with Mordecai the Jew, wrote with full authority to confirm this second letter about Purim. And Mordecai sent letters to all the Jews, to the one hundred and twenty-seven provinces of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, with words of peace and truth, to confirm these days of Purim at their appointed time, as Mordecai the Jew and Queen Esther had prescribed for them, and as they had decreed for themselves and their descendants concerning matters of their fasting and lamenting. So the decree of Esther confirmed these matters of Purim, and it was written in the book.” (Esther 9:29-32)
REFLECTION NOTES AND LESSONS LEARNED:
God is Our Greatest Leader, God is Our Savior, and God is Our Eternal King (Deuteronomy 10:17, Isaiah 43:11-12, and 1 Timothy 1:17). Our God is the God of Love (1 John 4:16 and 1 John 4:18). Our God is the God of Wisdom (James 1:5). Our God is the Holy God (Psalm 99:9). Our God is the God of Justice (Isaiah 45:21). God is the Greatest Giver (Matthew 7:7-8). The Whole Earth belongs to God (Psalm 24:1). Amen. In today’s study of the Bible, we read about how Queen Esther saved the Jews from destruction, the decrees that were written against the Jews by Haman were changed, and the Jews destroyed their enemies and started the Feast of Purim, and we also read about King Ahasuerus and Mordecai’s greatness and fame. As believers in God, it is always very important for us, to not take for granted, the salvation that God has provided to all of us through the Lord Jesus Christ, and the gift of the Holy Spirit (John 3:16-17, Acts 1:8, and Acts 2:38). Amen. It is always best for us to seek counsel from God (Psalm 33:11), and for us to seek for God’s wisdom (Proverbs 3:13). God is the giver of good success (Joshua 1:8), and God is always with His people (Joshua 1:9, Matthew 28:18-20, and John 14:15-17). It is good to rejoice with God (Philippians 4:4). Amen. 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. God loves all people (Genesis 1:27), and God wants to save all the people of the world that will come to Him for eternal salvation (John 3:16-17). If you are not yet saved by God, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved by God. Amen. Thank God for His wisdom, knowledge, and understanding (Psalm 111:10). Amen. May God bless you today, everyday, and forevermore in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
SALVATION REMINDER NOTE:
God loves you so much. God does not want you to perish. Today is the day of salvation. If you are not yet saved, repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved. And, by the grace of God, if you are already saved, share the message of salvation with others, and God will greatly bless you in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
WORDS OF JESUS:

“All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
“If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:31-32)
