Scripture: "Who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"Esther 4:14
Message: The Book of Esther is a story of what God did in the life of a woman to literally save a nation.Esther was a Jew who was plucked out of obscurity through an unusual chain of events and was made queen over the kingdom.A poor orphan,slave yet became very USEFUL.Men May turn their BACK against you because of your BACKGROUND,but not God.When a wicked man named Haman had been devising a plot to put to death the 15 million Jews in that kingdom,Mordecai,Esther’s uncle, came to the palace, wanting Esther to use her influence to help her people.
He sent word to Esther, “Do not think in your heart that you will escape in the king’s palace any more than all the other Jews.For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place,but you and your father’s house will perish.Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a *time as this*?” (Esther 4:13–14).
Wherever you may find yourself today,know that God has put you where you are for such a time as this. He has put you in that job,at that school,your neighborhood,church country for a purpose.There are opportunities to seize.You need to take hold of them.Its Sad many are rather using their POSITIONS to oppose people.Many want to remain on top alone.Many blessed yet remain unconcerned.
The dilemma of Esther is similar to that of many believers today, and Of course, the devil is happy with this, because that is exactly how he wants Christians to live.Be a complacent, apathetic Christian.Only spectators,that’s what Satan like.True champion is the one who is not just interested about wearing the crown,but fighting for others.Most blessed one is someone who has been a blessing to many.Be Esther today....for your family,church,community,country and generation are waiting for you.You have been PUT there for SUCH A TIME LIKE THIS.Act now!
