What They Have In Common
Ephesians 6:18 tells us that praying at all times in the Spirit, will infuse the armor and through the Holy Spirit we will be given the strength we need to be the ambassadors (warrior princesses) to fulfill our ministry He has called us to for this time; this season.
Good Morning Princesses!
Just a few requests before we meet on Tuesday, February 19th.
In-Person Class Session on Tuesday, February 19 @6:00 pm- Stark Library, Innovation Center
Please read the book of Esther, but with a twist! Meaning read the book in a different version than before (NIV or ESV) and listen to it via a Bible app.
1. Something In Common
This week we will be concluding the Book of Esther and continuing our journey on March 5 with the Book of Ruth. Besides being the only two books in the Bible named after women, both books share two main similarities:
#1 Committed to God’s Will
With an amazing plot, there is a critical point in both books that demonstrate the resolve of both women. In other words, when push comes to shove, here's their response:
Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.”
16 But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. 17 Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.”
#2 God’s Providence
In the book of Esther, we see a death sentence turn into a rescue. In Ruth, we will see a loss turn into the birth of a baby. In both, God’s will is fulfilled. His providence is clearly seen and His redemptive work is evident.
Keep reading the GO! Reports each week to catch the similarities and discussion of the characters. Learn that while separated by years and circumstances, both women share in common one word: Commitment.
With each new opportunity along our faith walk, we have a choice: to be committed, to trust and to obey in spite of the consequence or to wait for the evidence. Both Esther and Ruth share a dynamic faith walk. Looking forward to you joining us on this new journey. I think we can learn a thing or two from these leading ladies.

Spread the word and please keep the event, speakers, volunteers, and attendees in prayer. We hope you will able to attend this special event!
Oh, princesses of faith...remember
Prayer “empowers and ‘charges up’ every other piece so they can be used effectively against the enemy. Without prayer… your armor, cannot, will not, be infused with the power that only God’s-Spirit can give."
Know that through the Holy Spirit you can:
do things you couldn't;
feel things you didn't; and
know things you wouldn't.
