I. CHOOSE TO RESPOND HUMBLY • Before God (4:16) - through prayer and fasting

“ WHEN A MAN IS WILLING TO SET ASIDE THE LEGITIMATE APPETITES OF THE BODY TO CONCENTRATE ON THE WORK OF PRAYING, HE IS DEMONSTRATING THAT HE MEANS BUSINESS, THAT HE IS SEEKING WITH ALL HIS HEART, AND WILL NOT LET GOD GO UNLESS HE ANSWERS. ” (Arthur Wallis)

“THE RECORD OF THE WHOLE BIBLE INDICATES THAT PRAYER AND FASTING COMBINED, CONSTITUTE THE STRONGEST WEAPON COMMITTED TO GOD’S BELIEVERS. ” (Dr. Mary Ruth Swope)

III. CHOOSE TO STAND UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT (4:16)

“ “GO, GATHER TOGETHER ALL THE JEWS WHO ARE IN SUSA, AND HAVE THEM ALL GO WITHOUT FOOD SO THEY CAN PRAY BETTER FOR ME. DO NOT EAT OR DRINK FOR THREE DAYS, NIGHT OR DAY. I AND MY WOMEN SERVANTS WILL GO WITHOUT FOOD IN THE SAME WAY. THEN I WILL GO IN TO THE KING, WHICH IS AGAINST THE LAW. AND IF I DIE, I DIE.” Esther 4:16 ”

IV. CHOOSE TO BELIEVE GOD’S PROVIDENCE (4:16)
