12th May 2020: Our Daily deLIGHT~3rd Day-Counsel
Today we’re continuing in the book of Esther. In these ten short chapters the Seven Spirits of YHVH are prevalent throughout. First, we will read from Psalm 33:10-12 which says, “10 YHVH nullifies the counsel of the nations; He frustrates the plans of the peoples. 11 The counsel of YHVH stands forever, the plans of His heart from generation to generation. 12 Blessed [Asher ~ Happy] is the nation whose Elohim is YHVH, the people whom He has chosen for His own inheritance.”
Wicked Haman plotted to have the covenant people of Elohim destroyed and yet we see where the counsel of YHVH would intervene and reverse the judgment that was intended for them. Why? Because He made a covenant with Abraham and it will be fulfilled through the remnant that is willing to lay down their lives and follow the ways of the One true Elohim. As history moves forward our people experienced redemption over and over as we watch the counsel of the nations overturned. Every one of these times points us to Yeshua which is the only way to our ultimate salvation.
Ephesians 1:3-5, 7-8, 11 says; “3 Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Master Yeshua Messiah, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Messiah, 4 just as He [the Father] chose us in Him [Yeshua] before the foundation of the world, that we would be holy and blameless before Him [the Father]. In love 5 He [the Father] predestined us to adoption as sons through Yeshua Messiah to Himself, according to the kind intention of His will, 7 In Him [Yeshua] we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace 8 which He [the Father] lavished on us. In all wisdom and insight in Him [Yeshua]… 11 also we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will…”
When we go through seasons where we cannot “see” how things are going to work out, we have the promise above that “we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to His purpose who works all things after the counsel of His will…”
Have a blessed and shalom filled day!!
