Lessons from Queen Esther: Do Something Spiritual

Lessons from Queen Esther: Do Something Spiritual

When Queen Esther decided to do something about the "irrevocable" decree that had been passed to destroy Jews, she first did something spiritual. 

She told Mordechai, “Go and tell all the Jews in Shushan to fast for me and not to eat or drink for three days. My maids and I will also fast”. (Esther 4:15-16)

Therefore when you learn of the enemy’s plans to kill, steal or destroy your life, health, family, finances, ministry or any other aspect of your life, you have to first do something spiritual to deal with those plans.

Praying is another very effective spiritual intervention for any crisis. It should be combined with fasting because Jesus taught that some problems can only be solved by combining prayer with fasting when He told His disciples, This type cannot come out except through prayer and fasting. (Mark 9:28-29) 

This kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting. Matthew 17:21

Singing praises to God is another spiritual thing you can do to solve your problems. 

We see a good example of this effective Christian spiritual warfare recipe of prayer, fasting and praising God at work in 2 Chronicles 20 when King Jehoshaphat and the Israelites were attacked by multiple armies. 

Jehoshaphat set a fast and called all the people for prayers. After God had answered and told them to position themselves in the battlefield, he placed the choir which was praising God in front of the army as they went to the battlefield. God helped them and made their enemies destroy each other. 

Therefore when you are faced with Bible problems, use your spiritual warfare weapons of prayer + fasting + praising God.
