00387 - For Such a Time as This

Esther, an inspiring figure in the Bible, was a woman of courage and conviction. Chosen as queen by King Xerxes, she found herself in a position to impact her people profoundly.

Esther 4:14 says, ‘If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?’ (NLT)

Esther's bravery and trust in God are an inspiring example for us today. It reminds us to be attentive when we are called to take a stand and make a difference, even if it means stepping out of our comfort zone. Like Esther, we are encouraged to recognise that our lives have a purpose, and through faith and courage, we can be instruments of God's deliverance and hope for others today.

Quote Sometimes, the only way forward is to put your faith and reputation on the line.


Lord, thank You for the inspiration of Esther; help me learn from her example. Amen.
