ESTHER…Ready, Set, Going Forward

A Phone Tree Bible Study Series

Esther: It’s Tough Being a Woman by Beth Moore

Week 9 in Summary: The Right To Be Ready (Week 8 in book)

During week 8, we learn about a promotion, a plea, and a plan. Beth directs our attention to Mordecai, she talks about Esther’s dialogue with Xerxes, and she discusses the notable request made by the queen regarding going forward.

Week 8 Quotes from Beth – The Right To Be Ready:

– “To accomplish our call, we must be humbled far more than exalted…”

– “Humans are adept at finding ways to make what we want seem all about God…Thank goodness, He [God] not only sees the desires of our hearts, but He also looks straight into the heart of our desires and knows when we’re asking – even accidentally – for a false Christ.”

– “God is jealous for our true enduring hero to be His own Son.”

– “Sometimes God calls us to wait. Other times He calls us to act n-o-w.”

– “When God intervenes and we get a chance to know we’re blessed  and to feel blessed, nothing is more appropriate than seizing the happy moment.”

Discussion Question: Do you truly believe that God can take an impossibly dire situation and turn it around for the good?
