Before a girl’s turn came to go in to King Xerxes, she had to complete twelve months of beauty treatments prescribed for the women, six months with oil of myrrh and six with perfumes and cosmetics. (Esther 2:12)
A Christian friend uses free Line app to lead Bible study and prayer meeting during the time of sheltering at home away from the covid-19 pandemic. Recently, she starts the aerobic exercise online for her group.
Before I worked out with the group online this morning, I read my Bible on the schedule about Esther. After the exercise, I have the sweet feeling thinking that the saints were like Esther.
Thank God for the technology. While resting at home, we can have spiritual food through studying bible online and praying with other saints online. We can also exercise with other saints online. God seems to use this time to prepare the saints with godly “beauty treatment” for our well-being. What a spa treatment for the whole-being! May God’s light all shine brightly through the saints from inside out after the long rest of this shelter time.
While we patiently wait for the Lord, may we come to God’s palace for receiving this “beauty treatment” from God for preparing ourselves spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically for our Bridegroom, Jesus Christ. As a result, when He calls us to meet Him, we shall stand beside Him and shine His glory in the eternity.
