For thy maker is thine husband; the Lord of host is His name; and thy

Redeemer is the Holy one of Israel; the God of the whole earth shall

he be called. (Isaiah 54:5)

 

The King of kings continues to seek imperfect women as brides for His royal court. Esther is a classic example of such a woman who became a chosen bride for the King Ahasuerus in Shusan – the palace. Before she was chosen as bride and queen, I am sure she did not feel like the most beautiful woman in the land.  She had already experienced a lot during her very young life; She had lost her parents at a very tender age; she was considered an orphan and had been reared by her older cousin, Mordecai; she had no material legacy; she was living in exile in a foreign land; she had no formal education, experience nor exposure to the culture of the Persian people and certainly nothing going for her in terms of the civilization of the day. Nevertheless, in God’s providence, Esther became the king’s bride. First, she surrendered her former life. For her, this meant giving up life as a Jewish maiden. For you today, it will also mean and require your giving up every earthly heritage, culture and mentality to embrace the Heavenly heritage, culture and mentality.

Before the king could set his eyes on her, Esther had to go through a twelve month purification process.  During the first six months of purification to become the king’s bride, she soaked herself with oil of Myrrh. Myrrh both removed impurities and softened her skin. This treatment with Myrrh represents dying to self and experiencing the brokenness and sweetness of losing your life and finding it back in Christ. Myrrh removes the smell of the flesh, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the pride of life.

During the second six months of purification, Esther soaked herself with sweet odours. The process helped  rid her of all impurities and imperfection. This treatment represented praises, prayer and worship that flowed from her as she became a sweet fragrance for the Lord, bowing before Him and focusing on Him alone. Esther did not just undergo a few make up sessions or dab on some perfume.  The treatment was constant and prolonged. She spent so much time soaking herself in the oil and became so physically saturated with sweet spices that the aromatic fragrance began to literally seep out of her skin; she was symbolically saturated with the sacrifice of worship and praise as it were; This preparation ultimately helped her win the kings favour, and she consequently became his bride.

There is always a preparation process from one stage of life to another. God purifies you through the truth contained in His words, through trials and tests and over a period of time so as to enable you emerge as His bride. The enemy would love nothing more than to convince you that the preparation time is too long and that you are not bride material, but it is not true.  God already sees the bride inside of you and you have come to the Kingdom for such a time as this!

Prayer focus:             Lord, I receive the grace to prepare myself as your bride in Jesus Name.

 

Quote:                         You are His bride, you have His seal, you have His name, no devil in

hell can touch you.
