Esther 4:14 New International Version (NIV)
For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
THINK ABOUT IT ~
God's plan continues to unfold daily for each of us.
You have come to your royal position for such a time as this. What a great statement and acknowledgement of how God works. This time of life, God has brought us too. Let us focus today on the goodness of God and his power to change things suddenly. Nobody knows the depth of one day but God. Nobody knows the time or place life will end but God. Until that day, let us do our best daily to share life with hope, peace, joy, love and all good things. It's easy to focus on the negative or what we do not have in life. It's a greater purpose to live life fully on the promises of God and holding tight to faith.
Hebrews 11:1 New International Version (NIV)
Faith in Action
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
When I think about this statement: "For such a time as this", I think about how God has brought me through some hard things of life and I've seen miracles. I know that life changes suddenly and we are faced with new normals. In it all, I have found God faithful and right here for me. Sure there are things I don't understand and even wonder why at times. Yet, I know that God will handle it just fine. I was asked if I would change anything in my life, what would that be? I don't think I would change anything in life, not even the hard stuff or my mistakes. It is everything in the past that has brought me to this point of life. Yes, for such a time as this!
Jeremiah 1:5 (NIV)
"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations."
Just like God formed Jeremiah, he has formed you and I. I know that this time of life, God knew would happen. God also knew that we would be who we are in life and he would call us to a greater purpose. It's time to step up and step out on the promises of God. I can do anything I put my mind to and so can you. God has given us opportunities of free will and choices. Each one of our choices leads us down a road of promise. I will purpose this make this a good day and I hope you will too.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
