Its Saturday Night and I should be happy. I am moody and I remember I haven't read or heard the bible today ......that's the problem! I listened to Esther chapters 1-10. Because I am familiar with the text I kinda wander in my mind, but my heart leaped at this scripture below:
13“If it pleases the king,” Esther answered, “give the Jews in Susa permission to carry out this day’s edict tomorrow also, and let Haman’s ten sons be impaled on poles.”
14 So the king commanded that this be done. An edict was issued in Susa, and they impaled the ten sons of Haman. book of Esther 9:13-14
Haman was an Enemy of the Jews........God did not just get rid of Haman .......His Sons were impaled, too! Quickly, it came to my mind: When God destroys the Enemy in my life. He will destroy every assignment(sons) the Enemy had assigned to me!
This may be too spiritual for some so let me explain it this way
*You came for weight loss but now you've lost your low self worth and exchanged it for a beautiful smile+joy
*You came for nutrition education but you lost your anxiety about food and exchanged it with peace
*You came looking for a way out of obesity and found out your childhood emotions were weighing you down.......there is more than just one Enemy. Its good to know there is ONE greater who can destroy all the enemies we face once and for all!!
