Today we are digging into the Word of Ester 4:14
“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?”
Esther was an orphaned girl who grew up under the care of her cousin Mordecai. When one day because of the disobedience of another, Ester was granted the opportunity to compete for the King’s attention and become queen. Which she did. Then, a very trying time came upon her and her people. She was confronted with a decision to risk it all in order to step into her calling to save many.
Esther’s story is an example of the call that God can have on a person’s life. On your life.
In this ancient story of the bible, we can see someone stepping out boldly in faith by facing their fears and the challenge of being obedient risking it all to impact many.
Is God calling you to step into the direction of your calling but it comes with a price?
Today’s challenge is one of boldly facing your fears.
Those fears that you have placed deep within the recess of your mind. The fears that you believe are holding you back from following that call, that tug at your heart to pursue something that seems virtually impossible. To pursue those passions that you know with all your heart you are meant for?
To put everything at risk, the security and comfort of where you are now for the adversity that comes from taking the leap and stepping into all that you are meant to be.
