Esther 4:14 For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
This is the story of a young Jewish maid that God has blessed tremendously. She went from obscurity to become the king’s wife. She was beautiful. She had everything any young girl of her life could have wanted. She could have thought that she had it coming because of her beauty. She could have thought of herself and her on comfort and pleasure but God sent her family member to remind her of her greater calling or purpose.
That is what I want to do with you today. Why has God brought you to where you are? Why has He given you all that you have? What does He expect from you?
God will get His work done. For a long time I felt like that if I didn’t do my part maybe the work of God would be left undone but this verse says that God will one way or the other get it done. However if I do not do whatever it is that God has planned for my family then I must remember that I will rob my family and me of the blessings God has for us. It is my family that will suffer.
Then comes the most awesome question of all, could it be that God has been preparing you all along just for this? Could it be that He reached down into your family and did all that He has done just because He wants to use you for this purpose?
I do not know what the purpose is but He does and you probably do also. It has probably already crossed your mind. You are afraid of it and it has even caused you to draw away from God because you are afraid of your very purpose and what God would do with you.
Just remember, He will get His work done with you or without you. It is you and your family that will suffer the consequences of being outside of God’s will for your life!
Why are you here now?
