Salvation Sunday: For Such a Time as This

I think that the story of Esther is another story of bravery, courage and being unashamed of who you are. In this chapter, we see Haman which puts out a decree to  kill all Jews. That is crazy. This guy wanted to take out a race of people just because of who they worshipped. The crazy thing is that there will come a time where people will persecute Christians because of their belief of Christ!! If we look at Revelations, we see that this beast comes up and starts blaspheming against God and His people. We see that this beast goes against Christians and all the crazy things that are going to happen during this time. Taking the mark of the beast on the forehead or on the wrist. And this mark will allow people to survive and get food. It's crazy and one day it's gonna happen to this world. But we have to be unashamed and have that trying faith where we trust in God through it all. We shouldn't give up or take the easy road like the Israelites did in the wilderness. We gotta keep pressing and work through it and stay Jesus strong!! 

So, with Esther, she had to make the decision of going the kings court and risk dying and do the right thing. Or don't do anything and risk seeing all of her people be killed off. And the thing that got me was her uncle said maybe you were brought into the kingdom for such a time as this. Have you been in a situation where you don't see how you got that position? Is there a job that you were blessed and you have no idea how you got the hookup? Did you see and realize that God was the hookup? Do you think that you're there just to provide for yourself and make money? I don't think so. God puts us in positions so that He can use us to help us. Maybe God put you at a certain company for such a time as this. Maybe you're there to save someones life who has been contemplating suicide. Or maybe you're at a school to bring people to Christ. You never know what God has for you and that is why you have to trust God and stay tuned with Him so He can direct you.God is awesome like that and will connect you with people so you can continue to work and do what He called you to do. 

Don't be ashamed of who you are. Don't be ashamed of what God has called you to do. God has brought you to a spot for such a time as this. Seek God and find out what is the reason. If God has called you to do something and you don't see how it's gonna work out. You don't see how you'll get through it. Exercise that faith and be confident in God that He will come through and will reveal His plan. I know that God can and that He will!!

Stay blessed!!
