Episode Info: In today’s episode, Dr. Siohvaughn Funches continues the series, “Favor on the Way.” Dr. Funches invites you to see in this series that God favors you on the way to inheriting that promise God made you.Dr. Funches recaps the message from the first episode of this series that everyone faces storms in life. We live in a world that is fallen, where the devil has influence with people. The spiritual storms that arise in us are like natural storms. Visibility is not good in a storm. God wants us to use our eyes of faith to see God in His word. We don’t see a way out of our troubles but God surely has a way. Jesus has overcome the world with His blood. Look with eyes of faith. Ask God to open your eyes of faith so you can see Jesus every day in your walk with Him. God is good to you every day. Dr. Funches talks about the favor of God to you through Jesus as you walk by faith.   In last week’s message, Dr. Funches started delving into the Book of Esther. This week, Dr. Funches continues in the Book of Esther. We see that Esther and Mordecai had a journey to get to their promised blessings. Dr. Funches invites you to slow down and meditate as you read the scriptures. Think about how long Abraham and Sarah waited on God. Slow down, soak in the truth, and let the Holy Spirit minister to you. It is better to read a little with the Holy Spirit than to read a lot without seeking the Holy Spirit. Dr. Funches recaps the first chapters of the Book of Esther, looking at how Esther was orphaned and Mordecai took her in as his daughter. Dr. Funches summarizes the events in the Book of Esther concerning how Esther, as a virgin, was brought before King Ahasuerus as a potential bride for him. Even in their hardships, Esther and Mordecai trusted in God and God favored them along the way. Dr. Funches picks up in the Book of Esther where last week’s message ended.   Listen in to hear how God favors the New Covenant believer on the way to receive.   KEY BIBLE VERSES [20:00] Esther, NKJV (Chapter 2 summarized) [20:38] Esther 2:15, NKJV 15 Now when the turn came for Esther the daughter of Abihail the uncle of Mordecai, who had taken her as his daughter, to go in to the king, she requested nothing but what Hegai the king’s eunuch, the custodian of the women, advised. And Esther obtained favor in the sight of all who saw her. [29:10] Esther 2:16–18, NKJV 16 So Esther was taken to King Ahasuerus, into his royal palace, in the tenth month, which is the month of Tebeth, in the seventh year of his reign. 17 The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti. 18 Then the king made a great feast, the Feast of Esther, for all his officials and servants; and he proclaimed a holiday in the provinces and gave gifts according to the generosity of a king.
