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" (Esther 4:14). 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. But because they had their eyes fixed on God and they trusted in Him, they were ready and willing to do what was necessary when they encountered situations that called for action.

Are you ready should God ask you to do something out of the ordinary for Him today? 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 to serve God to the best of your ability and, in so doing, impact your family, neighborhood, or city? Tami

Yes,Tami I am ready.
Right now, I can pray for my people/family/friends.
While praying to ask the Lord what is will is for me to do today.

Esther and Mordecai were a team and doing what part they could do to accomplish the safety of their people. Teamwork.

I like what was said about Mordecai in vs. 3b)"for he sought the welfare of his people and spoke peace to all his people."
