FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS
God works according to his own schedule and appointed time. Our issue is the fact that we often are unable to discern the hand of God in the midst of our mess. Therefore, when we are unable to trace God's meaning to see where God is working then we often times lose our trust and faith in God. We must remember the words of Isa 55:8-9
8 "For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts." (KJV) Esther found herself in an unusual predicament in the midst of a horrible situation for her people, the Jews. There was a plot to destroy them and it seemed that there was nothing she or anyone else could do to avert the disaster; however, God had a divine plan that he had set in motion even though Esther herself was not aware of it. God has placed her strategically in the right place, at the right time and in front of the right person. He sat her directly in front of the one who would be able to remedy the situation. She had to be challenged with these words found in Est 4:14, "For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" (KJV) These words are applicable for us in the midst of our current situation. It may be that God has us right where we need to be in order to make an impact that will lead to correcting the wrong all around us. Never give up on God’s power and ability to transform the situation but you must also be willing to accept the challenge and take the risk for righteousness. God is looking for believers who will say like Isa 6:8 "Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me." (KJV)
So who knows, God just may have plans for your involvement in his act of transformation.
Are you ready?
