One of my favorite women of the Bible is Queen Esther. What I admire most about Esther is her extraordinary strength. Despite feeling afraid, she still mustered up the strength to accept the assignment that she was destined for. Esther no doubt knew that real strength comes from God, and she allowed Him to work through her. Through faith, she found the courage to face her fears. From her humble beginnings to living in the lavish palace of the king, she remained true to herself, her family, her people, and her God. No doubt, Esther serves as an inspiring role model for women of all ages.
In a beautifully orchestrated plan, Esther was in the right place at the right time. Esther knew that she must face her fears and trust in God’s plan for her life, so she courageously stepped out in faith and obedience to accomplish the task laid before her. Queen Esther’s brave actions serve to show us that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things.
Maybe you, too, have felt like Esther. Remember when you experience “for such a time as this moments,” that He can and will turn pain into purpose and trials into blessings. What He calls you to do, He will help you accomplish…
“Perhaps you were born for such a time as this”
