Clearly we can see that God has a plan and everyday we can choose to be a part of the plan or not to. Either way just as in Isaiah 55:11 ‘so shall my words be that goes out of my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it’. Either way, with or without you or me the Lord will use someone who is willing to serve Him to accomplish what has already been ordained. We need to ask ourselves each day, “can God count me ‘in’ on this day”? Don’t say maybe tomorrow, because we only have the here and now and that is all we can be sure of.
BELOW IS FROM VERSES OF THE DAY
“For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?”
A man named Haman had orchestrated the annihilation of an entire people; Queen Esther’s people, the Jews. Confronting King Xerxes regarding this effort could cost Esther her life; yet Mordecai, Esther’s cousin, persuaded her to go to the King anyway. After fasting and praying by all the Jews including Esther, she went to the King and found favor in his sight. Sometimes God places us in certain situations so that we, like Esther, can choose to rise to the occasion and stand firm for Him.
