Esther: For Such a Time as This
In this second message in the series, Wonderful Women of Faith, we take another look at the person of Esther. Within the span of every lifetime, there comes at least that one time when we must make a courageous decision; are we going to remain in a place of comfort and safety, or are we going to raise our profile and our voice for others who are going through distress and trouble? Esther’s uncle Mordecai reminded Esther that she was where she was at that moment, “for such a time as this.” Esther did respond in faith and saved her people from certain destruction. Our own stories may not be nearly so dramatic, but God will use us for God’s purposes nonetheless if we are open to the Holy Spirit’s leading and timing. How will God give you courage for God’s own purposes?
