Taking a Stand: Esther, Queen of Persia

Esther 1-10

She was a Jewish girl who became queen to a Persian king. Carefully hiding her identity, she lives peaceably until her people are threatened. What should she do? If she reveals herself and goes before the king, she could be put to death. If she keeps silent, God will deliver His people another way and she will be condemned. Her cousin Mordecai realizes that God has placed Esther in her current position “for such a time as this.” (Es. 4:14)

She was frightened, but she knew her God. She had followed Him all her life and He had never let her down. If the king took her life, she knew it would be God’s will. Asking her people to fast for three days, she mustered the courage to enter the presence of the King. She did not die; instead, she saved her people.

Does God need us to fight for the rights of “His people”? In a word—Yes! God has placed us in the executive suites, public offices, and even on the PTA boards for His purposes. Will we risk our jobs, friends, and families for God? One day He will call on you to take a stand just as Esther did.

God may not demand our life, but He does demand that we let others know that we stand for Him. No matter where we are, our thoughts, words, and deeds should speak for Him. When we hide His light, for fear of losing our position or possessions, we stand to lose a lot more—our eternal soul.

“But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my father in heaven.” (Matt. 10:33, KJV)

What are you willing to risk for God? _________________________________

Garnet, this is a wonderful challenge! At first, we may hide our identity. It may be for tactical reasons, but we can only hide it for so long. When the time comes, we have to be ready to face our fears in order to identify with God and His cause. Thank you for reminding me that wherever I am, I have been placed there "for such a time as this".
