For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]? ESTHER 4:14 (AMP)

In the face of certain destruction, an orphaned Jewish girl in a new position of power risked everything to save her people.

Have you ever been asked to do something that was difficult and felt like saying, ‘Why me?’ When Queen Esther’s uncle Mordecai proposed that she utilise her power to prevent the extinction of her people, Esther may have thought that way.

No other Jew, according to Mordecai, had such access to the king. Perhaps God had intended for Esther to be queen in order to put her in a position to prevent such a horrific evil from occurring and save her people. Esther was aware of her obligations. She requested that everyone observe a three-day fast, which would have likely included fervent prayers to God for deliverance.

So, when Esther walked into the king’s throne room, she was wrapped not just in a beautiful robe but also in the prayers of God’s people. It wasn’t just the king in that room; God was there too. We must remember that God is always with us, working behind the scenes, arranging opportunities and possibilities for us.

We have a God who loves and cares for us. We can rejoice in the fact that even in life’s trials, God is faithfully at work in our lives and will carry us through every day.
