For Such a Time as This November 16, 2006

Posted by pastorsbc1303 in Devotional.

The story of Esther has always intrigued me. The story unfolds like a major motion picture.  Esther is chosen to replace Vashti as Queen.  Mordecai uncovers a conspiracy of Haman to destory the Jews.  This threat puts all of God’s convenant promises to Abraham and David in jeopardy. 

Who will step up in such a vital time? 

Esther 4:12-16  “When Esther’s words were reported to Mordecai, he sent back this answer: ‘Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish.  And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?’  Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: ‘Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me.  Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day.  I and my maids will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law.  And if I perish, I perish.'”

My hope and prayer is that I can be a person of such faith!
