“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, and 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?”Esther 4:14 NIV.
It’s no secret this world is changing, and wickedness is increasing at an alarming rate.
Esther’s world was changing too when wickedness threatened to annihilate her people, the Jews.
But Esther didn’t “just happen” to be born at the right time and the right place. She didn’t “just happen” to rise to the status of queen. And she didn’t “just happen” to win the king’s favor when she approached him, and the Jews were spared.
God had a plan for her life.
Maybe you feel unprepared and uncertain as things in this world have been flipped upside down. Or perhaps you feel like you don’t even belong anywhere.
Oh, precious soul. God has a plan for YOUR life too.
God didn’t make a mistake when He created you. You were born during a particular time in history for a purpose.
This is your time in history for HIS purpose.
And you can know what that purpose is, what God’s will for your life is when you refuse to conform to the topsy-turvy pattern of this world by staying grounded in the truth of His word. And when you ask, God will give you wisdom far beyond your human knowledge.
You may be living in a world where things seem to be totally out of control and wickedness is running rampant, but Almighty God, who created this world in an orderly fashion and brought you into it the day you were born, is in control of all things.
There’s a reason you’re here right NOW, dear soul. Don’t be discouraged. Be excited to discover what God has in store for you and what He’s going to do THROUGH you in this world.
You can be sure it’s going to be good.
