Esther 7:3 " Then Queen Esther answered, “If I have found favor with you, O king, and if it pleases your majesty, grant me my life-this is my petition. And spare my people-this is my request. Esther 8:4 Now once more Esther came before the king, falling down at his feet and begging him with tears to stop Haman's evil plot against the Jews.
It has been said that evil presists because good people do nothing. Believers must not be afraid to speak truth, counter evil, and help the innocent and the helpless. Our responsibility is to resist evil, repay kindness and restore order. Evil acts know no fear or boundaries ...unless God's people act. The wicked never rest, so the righteous must resist.
What a "superhero" our Esther turned out to be. Taking a stand for righteousness even if it meant death!!!! Well, alone I couldn't do what Esther did....only through the power of Christ that lives in me could I risk my life .....Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. I don't know if the LORD would ever call me to such a task...but, I'm confident that if He called me too it...He would give me the strength to follow through. Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'........
Father, thank you that all that you have called me to do, the purposes that You created me for, You will give me the ability to do....I too can be a "superhero" like Esther...because Your Spirit lives in me. Help me to continue to seek Your direction in my life and not miss any opportunity to take a stand for You.
In Jesus name, Amen.
God bless your day,
