The Purim Story
The Purim story is recorded in the book of Esther in the Bible and it involves the following people:

King Ahaseurus
King Ahaseurus was Queen Esther's husband and he Reigned from India to Ethiopia and ruled over 127 provinces. (Esther 1:1)

Queen Esther
Queen Esther, who was also known as Hadassah, was a Jew and King Ahaseurus's wife.

Mordechai
Mordechai was a Jew who sat within the King's gate. He was also Queen Esther's cousin and he had brought her up because she was an orphan.

Haman 
Haman was an Agagite and a powerful official in the government of King Ahaseurus because the King had promoted him to be above all the other nobles. (Esther 3:1)

Haman hatched a plot to kill Mordechai and all the other Jews in King Ahaseurus' kingdom because Mordechai refused to bow down to him. (Esther 3:5-6) King Ahaseurus acquiesced to Haman's plot and his scribes wrote a decree to this effect in his name and sealed it with his signet (Esther 3:12) since this made it irrevocable. (Esther 8:8)

This law was sent by courier to All the king's 127 provinces commanding them to kill all the Jews, both young and old, children and women on the 13th day of the 12th month of Adar. (Esther 3:14) Consequently, there was great mourning among the Jewish population and Mordechai urged Queen Esther to go and speak to the King about it.

Queen Esther spoke to the King and a new decree was written in the king’s name and sealed with his signet which countered the previous one. Consequently, In every province where this decree was taken, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast day and a good day. (Esther 8:17) 


Bible prayers for Purim


As a Christian, you can celebrate Purim together with the Jews in remembrance of the time they were delivered from their enemies.

You can also use the days preceding the Purim Holiday to pray and ask God to deliver you from your own enemies. For optimum results combine your prayers with a 3 day fast like Queen Esther. 

Bible prayers you can pray for deliverance include:
Father God I ask You in the name of Jesus to give me relief from my enemies.” (Adapted Esther 9:22)

Father God I ask You in the name of Jesus to turn my sorrow into joy and my mourning into celebration.” (Adapted Esther 9:22)

Book: Christian Conflict Resolution

Christian conflict resolution

This Bible story of David, Nabal, and Abigail in 1 Samuel 25:2-38 teaches us how to resolve conflicts.

Nabal was a harsh, evil, and rich man who had 3000 sheep and 1000 goats. His wife Abigail was a beautiful woman of good understanding.

David and his men protected Nabal’s shepherds and one feast day David sent messengers to ask Nabal for food. Nabal was very rude to David’s envoys and this angered David so much that he armed 400 men and set off for Nabal’s homestead to kill all his men.

Abigail was told of how her husband had reviled David and repaid him evil for the good he had done to her shepherds. She was also informed that her household was in danger because of her husband. She acted quickly and loaded donkeys with food and wine and set off to see David.

While on her way, she met him and his men approaching her homestead. She spoke to David and resolved the conflict between him and her husband and in so doing, saved her family and homestead.   


How to resolve conflicts biblically

Abigail can teach us the following principles of Christian conflict resolution:

1. Prepare For It

Preparing will help you resolve your conflicts faster and enable you to leave the negotiation table more content. 

To help you decide what you want to achieve from the conflict resolution process write down the following:
A. All your interests which are threatened by the conflict in order of importance.

B. How you want the conflict to be resolved.

C. What you are willing to concede as you compromise to reach a solution.

D. What you want to retain as you negotiate to reach a solution.

Abigail could have prepared for meeting David by writing down the following:
A. All your interests which are threatened by the conflict in order of importance.
Abigail’s interests which were threatened by the conflict between her husband Nabal and David were the lives of all the men in her family and household for David said to Abigail: “… Surely by morning light no males would have been left to Nabal!” (1 Samuel 25:34)

B. How you want the conflict to be resolved.
Abigail wanted the conflict to be resolved and the men’s lives spared for she said to David, “That this will be of no grief to you, nor offense of heart to my lord, either that you have shed blood without cause, or that my lord has avenged himself.” (1 Samuel 25:31)

C. What you are willing to concede as you compromise to reach a solution.
In order to compromise and reach a solution, Abigail was willing to “trade off” some things for she Took 200 loaves of bread, 2 skins of wine, 5 sheep already dressed, 5 seahs of roasted grain, 100 clusters of raisins, and 200 cakes of figs, and loaded them on donkeys (1 Samuel 25:18) to take them to David.

D. What you want to retain as you negotiate to reach a solution.

As she compromised, Abigail wanted to retain the lives of the men of her household and business as evidenced by her words (see B above).

This blog post is an excerpt of the book Christian conflict resolution.










How to Encourage Yourself in God

How to Encourage Yourself in the Lord

Learning how to encourage yourself in God is a very important life skill because one day you may find yourself facing tough challenges and having no one in your corner to support you. It is for those times that you must therefore learn how to encourage yourself in the Lord like David.  

David found himself in a very bad situation one day when he and his men returned to their homes in Ziklag and found their houses burnt by the Amalekites. (1 Samuel 30:1)  

These Amalekites had also kidnapped the wives and children of David and his men. (1 Samuel 30:2)  

In addition to dealing with this double tragedy, David's own men now started speaking of stoning him. (1 Samuel 30:6)

Thus David was dealing with the challenges of having his home destroyed, his family members kidnapped and his friends talking about killing him.

In addition to this, David could not live in his home country because King Saul was trying to kill him because of jealousy.  

Thus so many things were going so wrong in David's life that he could have decided to give up. However, David did not give up on life or on God. Instead, David encouraged himself in the Lord. (1 Samuel 30:6)


David encouraged himself in the Lord 1 Samuel 30:6


How to Encourage Yourself in the Lord
If you ever find yourself in a situation where you are dealing with multiple problems  and the people you thought you could depend on are now talking about you in a negative way, emulate David and encourage yourself in the Lord by doing the following:
1. Pray for Strength
Pray and ask God to help you solve the problems you are currently facing. 


How to pray for your stressful situation


Then pray and ask God to strengthen you in the inner person as you wait for solutions to your problems. 
For example you can pray, Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to help me so that I can Be strong in You Lord and in the power of Your might. (Ephesians 6:10)

Heavenly Father, you are a God Who gives power to the weak and I therefore ask You in the name of Jesus to increase my strength. (Isaiah 40:29)

Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to strenghten me and to be with me so that I can run against this troop and jump over this wall. (Psalm 18:29)

Heavenly  Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to arm me with strength for this battle 
(Psalm 18:39) and perfect my way. (Psalm 18:32)


Bible prayers for strength



2. Look at Your Past
Looks at your past and remind yourself of the number of times God has delivered you from other problems even if they were different from the ones you are currently facing.

Then, tell yourself that God can still deliver you from your current problems because He is still the same great God.

We can see a great example of this from David when he faced the challenge of fighting Goliath because he declared, "The Lord who delivered me from the paw of the lion and the paw of the bear, He will deliver me from the hand of this Philistine.(1 Samuel 17:37) 

Therefore, declare that the God Who helped you deal with problems in your past will also help you deal with the problems in your present.


The importance of keeping a book of blessings




3. Look with Your Present
Look at your present life situation and remind yourself of the purpose of God for your current life and then decide to fulfill it.

Emulate David who did this for the Bible says he Served the purpose of God for His generation. (Acts 13:36)

So if your current Life Purpose is to train up your children in the ways of God as you wait for your God appointed time to become the international worship leader that many people have prophesied about your life, rededicate yourself to fulfilling that purpose even if the midst of your current problems. 

How to overcome discouragement book

To fulfill your Life Purpose effectively without being discouraged by your present problems, you have to remove the focus of your mind from your current problems and refocus it on what God expects you to do in this current season of your life.
4. Look at Your Future
Look at your future and remind yourself of the things that God has told you He will do in your life. 

In David's situation, he could have reminded himself that he was anointed to be king of Israel by Samuel (1 Samuel 16:13) and so he was destined to become the King of Israel and not to die as a fugitive in a foreign land. 

Therefore remind yourself of what God has told you about His plans for your future life. Then, let His Words strengthen you since they must come to pass. 

If you do not have a specific Word from the Lord about your life, remind yourself of His promises in the Bible because they are for everyone. 


Promises of God book

Promises of God that you can meditate on to strengthen yourself in the Lord and enable you to look forward to your future regardless of what is going on in your present include:
I know the thoughts I have towards you, thoughts of peace and not evil, thoughts to give you a future and hope. (Jeremiah 29:11) 

God will make you the head and not the tail. You shall be above and not beneath. (Deuteronomy 28:13)

Weeping may endure for a night but joy cometh in the morning. (Psalm 30:5)

Valentine day crafts for kids


Valentine Day Crafts for Kids

February is an excellent month to teach children the meaning of love in Sunday School and at home. One of the best ways of doing this by keeping them busy with Valentine day crafts for kids like the following:


The Love Jar
The Bible defines love in 1 Corinthians 13 and to help your children understand what love is, let them write out the following love phrases on colored paper three times:
Love is patient
Love is kind
Love is not jealous
Love is not conceited
Love is not proud
Love is not ill-mannered
Love is not selfish
Love is not irritable
Love does not keep a record of wrongs
Love is happy with the truth

Have them cut out each love phrase and fold it. 
Place each piece of folded paper with a love phrase in a jar. This means that you have 30 love phrases in the jar.

Each morning let each child pick a love phrase from the jar, read it out for the others and practice it for the entire day. So if a child picks the "love is kind" phrase, he/she has to go out of their way to be kind that day.
In the evening, have each child recount how they practiced their love phrase.

Christian Valentine Day crafts for children

The Love Board
Buy cardstock of different colors (one for each child) and let each child cut out 10 love heart shapes.

Let each child write a love phrase on each of their love hearts.

Each morning remind the children to practice one love phrase during their day at school and at home.

In the evening, let each child recount how they practiced their love phrase and then pin the love hearts with that phrase on a board. So if a child was kind and patient, pin their "love is patient" and "love is kind" love hearts on the board.
