I always pray before reading my bible and just flip it open anywhere and begin to read. Nothing happens by chance to me especially when it comes to the bible. So, there was Esther chapter 4:16 I began to read it and there I, was amazed and even more empowered by another woman in the bible. They called her Esther.
Esther risked her life to see the king. Am I any better than Esther? Here she is this young woman standing up for her people not letting fear control her. She laid her life on the line, that means everything she had didn’t have much value as much as her voice did. She was a courageous woman taking a stand for what she believed in. Not letting anyone back her out of it. She put forth her faith took a stand and went forth.
Are we truly taking a stand for what we believe in? Are we telling the world to pray for me I am going on a mission and if I happen to perish don’t worry I, am not afraid. Are we doing what God is telling us to do, or are we standing in the dark hoping for the King to spot us out in a crowd of billions; or are we standing on the front line spreading Gods message and completing out our mission God has assigned us. God is looking for an Esther; to lay everything aside and tell the world if I perish let me perish, but my King has a mission for me and I can no longer be afraid.
Are you taking a stand?
Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish
Have a Blessed Sunday
