God’s Ways

Today's reading: Esther 6:1-13

I had intended to continue looking at Haman as we moved into Esther 6, but immediately as I began reading, my attention was drawn in another direction. The first couple of sentences of this chapter brought God and the unique ways He moves to my mind. I literally smiled when I read about Ahasuerus not being able to sleep and then having the book of chronicles read to him in the middle of the night. Here's why. Over the last few months God has been waking me up many nights, and when I wake up, someone or something is on my mind that needs prayed for. Sometimes it doesn't make sense to me, but then a day or so after the fact God will show me why He woke me up so I could pray. I love it. I now consider God waking me up to pray as part of my nightly routine.

What did this passage show you about God--the ways in which He works, whom He chooses to work through and use, the breadth and comprehensiveness of His plan, something else? Take some time thinking about this because there is quite a bit we can learn from this chapter. Tami
