Esther 4:13 & 14 (NLT), “13 Mordecai sent this reply to Esther: “Don’t think for a moment that because you’re in the palace you will escape when all other Jews are killed. 14 If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?””
So many moments over the last several weeks, I have seen posts about the fact that we often try to escape painful moments that we are in. Those are instinctual patterns of humans. We do not want to hurt, we have been conditioned to enjoy comfort and leisure.
But guess what… it is in the pain, in the warring, in the fight, in the battle emotionally and spiritually; that growth and maturity causes us to become who we were intended to be from Heavens origin. From the heart of our Heavenly Father. From the annuals of history’s pages, written by our Father. We are designed to be the broken jars of clay that shine not in our own beauty and plan, but in His!
This goes against the “natural order” of self-protection and self-preservation. But puts eternal investments into the Market of Eternity!
So…that spot you find yourself in today.
Stop and look at the plan from His perspective.
Find the path that He has planned for you to walk in.
Go forward and get the ring, the crown, the prize for which you were created to win and possess!
Set yourself free… Set the people free… Be Free!!!!
