Ester 4:14

Ester 4:14

“For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
Esther 4:14

Esther was a woman chosen to be the wife of the king. There was some trouble that threatened the life of the Jews and her uncle Mordecai brought it to her attention. “Don’t think you’ll be safe there where you’re at,” he said. Esther was in a tough position. She had the opportunity to change the fate of her people by going to the king, but if she said something the king did not like, it could result in her death. Mordecai reminds her, what if God allowed you to be in the position you are in for this very reason? What if the favor you found in the king’s eyes was for this very specific moment in time?

Whatever place we find ourselves in, we have the unique ability to bring light to the situation. Sure we might be made fun of and ridiculed. Maybe fired from a job that we have. But what if for this very reason you are where you are to make a change? 

Take some time to think of how you can speak up. It could very well be the person listening and watching you gives their life to the Lord.
