For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?”
Esther 4:14 NASB
The circumstances of Esther’s ascension to the throne, as queen, are great. As you read, you can definitely see God’s hand at work.
But just as God is always working in and around His people, so is the devil. The devil wants to harm and ultimately kill the people of God.
As a result, God uses people, to be His hands and feet, to bring help, deliverance, a message, a Scripture, a prayer, whatever He desires to help His people.
This happens constantly, every single day! He looks for willingly vessels whom He can use for His glory!
Will you allow God to use you? Esther needed to be reminded by her uncle Moredicai, that God has put her in the position for times like this. Do you see yourself in the same manner?
Do you understand that God has put you in certain places, in situations, around certain people for times like these? You are not in your job just because you have the skills…You are not in that city because you just happened to move there…You are not involved with that group because you happened to join… God has you where you are, everywhere you are, for a reason, for this time.
Will you answer the call? Will you pray and seek God on how you are to respond? Will you let this time pass you by or will you honor God and be His hands and feet?
You might be the only Jesus someone knows today, tomorrow or ever.
Lord, help me to be an instrument of Your glory. Help me to proclaim You to those around me, by my actions and words. Let others know that there is a God who loves them in Heaven because I have been obedient to follow Your ways.
