Today's reading: Esther 10:1-3

The final chapter of Esther highlights Mordecai. And honestly, when you look back at this book, Mordecai is as much a key player in saving the Jews as Esther. It was Mordecai that sent the challenging message to Esther telling her that perhaps she had been chosen as queen "for such a time as this." And those same words also applied to Mordecai because God had also placed him right where he was at this time for the specific purpose of saving the Jews.

Neither Esther nor Mordecai had any idea that they were going to be used by God in such a significant way. Yet because they had their eyes fixed on God and they trusted in Him, they were ready and willing to act and do what was necessary when they encountered situations that called for action.

If God were to ask you to move and do something out of the ordinary for Him today, are you ready? Take a minute to think about the phrase "for such a time as this" as it pertains to you personally. What is it that you can do--right now in your unique situation or circumstances--to serve God to the best of your ability, and in so doing, impact your family, neighborhood or city? Tami

I would hope that my answer would be YES, with the words following " Yes I am willing,I need You to help me because I can not do anything without You and Your help, LORD."
Would God ask me to do something if I were not ready?

Right now I feel God wants me to pray for others. There are a lot of needs and we have workers who need prayers to help them to stay the course and be found faithful to their calling. I need to spend more time in prayer.

Esther was ready to be presented to the king as a possible candidate as wife/queen.
When Mordecai asked Esther to approach the king for the sake of Jews from death, she hesitated,but then she chose to fast 3 days before even approaching the king ( to be ready) "for such a time as this."
Mordecai heard the king's two doorkeepers 'plot to kill the king so he notified Esther who made it known to the king.Both were used to spare the king's life.


Tami, I wish that I knew for sure about our spiritual landmarks. Is God's Word and the Holy Spirit my spiritual landmarks that keeps me in bounds from disobeying the Lord?
