We who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. Rom.15v.1

     Do the failures of others bring out the best in you? When they let you down or they let God down, do you respond like the victim or the heroic victor? Our Bible reading today is warning us about weakness - both in those who make mistakes and the weakness in those of us around them who are (supposed to be) strong. Are we victims of others' failures or are we victors helping victims to overcome?  (Oops, I can feel an "ouch" coming on!)

    Why did Romans add "not to please ourselves"? Well, self-gratification is contagious. Usually the failure of the weak stems from just that- their wanting to please themselves. Sadly, our frustration and disappointment over their failure can color our response with the same muddy, fleshly desire. Then our correction or criticism is motivated by a desire to please ourselves!  So their mess doesn't bring out our best; just more mess.

     My French friends would say that Americans take dirt too personally. The French can see dirt in a hotel room or a train compartment and spend the night or get to their destination with nary a thought about it. (God could ask you to go the Third World or to some dirty, tough neighborhood where there is no manager to take your complaint. It is not that I like dirt: I just don't want it to stop me from getting to the gold!) How about your weak husband's "dirty neighborhood"? Or your weak boss or your weak, misbehaving sister's "dirty neighborhood" were their Flesh is the Gang Leader and you have to go get them out of the pit with your helpful, tough love? If the Bible says you "ought to bear with the failings of the weak, God knows you can!

      Father, We are weak ,but You are strong! We reach up and grab hold of Your strength today. Help us, oh God,to lift the weak! Let the weak say, "I am strong."

from past baggage
old sin
And Lot also, which went with Abraham, had flocks and herds and tents. And the land was not able to bear them, for their substance was great...And Abraham said,
"Lot, separate thyself, I pray thee, from me." Genesis 13v.5; ...forgetting what lies behind, straining for what lies ahead. Phil.3v.13
           You can't take it with you. "It" means your (unfruitful) way of thinking, your old " it ain't working" way of working. Abraham's nephew was a dear relative, they had so much in common, so many sweet or tough memories shared. How long before we get God saying, "Separate from your old way. There is a new way."
        As always with God, you must obey the first step (separate, leave the baggage, drop it,) before the land under your foot's path for the 2nd step appears.
And the Lord said unto to Abraham AFTER that Lot was separated from him:
Lift up now thine eyes from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward. For all the land that thou seetst, to thee will I give it...v.14-17
FATHER:  Show me Your new way today! I PRESS TOWARD THE PRIZE!
Love you guys more than you know,

Will you keep silent at this time, Queen Esther? Now that you have prevailed before the King and your petition for deliverance for you and your nation from the evil Haman Hillary, will you decree, reign and use your authority? Not many days hence, about 30, the inauguration of the President God chose and we died for (died to pizza and blueberry pancakes, died to distractions to cry out, some died to fear of voting Republican for the 1st time!)) will be inaugurated. 
     Though the media is attempting to spread dishonor and rebellion,your intercession for  FULL MORDECAI HONOR will crown the event and will also REAP HONOR for you. The honor you intercede for in these 30 days to January 21 is the degree of honor that will (or won't) come to you in the New Year. God is teaching us to reign in this extraordinary season, this amazing Last Days Age. Can you honor a husband if God gave you one, a boss, a mother-in-law, can you honor the Office of the President or the Plan of God? Skimping on honor at this time, will skimp on the Glory of God!
 When God's choice is  fully honored, - as Mordecai was - God's reward is FULLY given! God gave the people of the nation light ( a new dawn of hope) and gladness and joy and honor.The enemies of the Kingdom were destroyed. Esther 8v.16 Victory is indeed sweet!
 ....And the king said to Haman/Hillary, what shall be done to the man whom the king delights to honor?...Haman answered... Let royal apparel be brought which the king has worn (NOTE: THE ANOINTING)  
 And the horse which the king has ridden 
(NOTE: same as David's instructions for Solomon's inaugurations for David's mule to be ridden) and a royal crown be set upon his head. 
Let the apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king's most noble princes. Let him array the man (NOTE: divine order- Mordecai was not putting king's robe on himself- but nobility and established order robing him) whom the king delights to honor and conduct him on horseback through the open square of the city (NOTE: We need to pray for the city- the sea of people to OPEN to Trump and not resist him whom Our king has appointed.)Esther 6v.6-9
The King's instructions in Esther 6v.10
Do so to Mordecai the Jew (Make it happen).
Leave out nothing that you have spoken. (Don't mess this up.)
We need a full Mordecai inauguration. Esther (the church) has prevailed before the King.We won. We Arise, We Shine for Our light has come!
