Unexpecting But Ready
Today's reading: Esther 10:1-3
The Book of Esther concludes with comments about Mordecai. And 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 message to Esther telling her that perhaps she had been chosen as queen "for such a time as this." And as I thought about this story, those same words applied to Mordecai as well because God had also placed him right where he was at this time and for the specific purpose of saving the Jews. Neither Esther or Mordecai had any idea that they were going to be used by God in such a significant way--yet, they were ready and willing to take action for God. What a good reminder and lesson for each of us today.
Are you ready should God ask you to move and do something out of the ordinary for Him today? Take a minute to think about your personal "for such a time as this." How are you serving (or can you serve) God in your unique situation or circumstances? Tami
