Such a Time as This

NOVEMBER 9TH, 2020      |      When you read that verse in Esther, God reminds you not to be silent. You died with Christ and are hidden (safe) from the worldly desires. He gives you His power to do all things. You are not worthy inside yourself. You are now one in Him. The Royalty of Heaven has been given to His children through His blood, which has redeemed you. The Bible calls it your inheritance (Colossians 3:24 NIV).

This is such a time! You know that salvation is not earned, but because you love Jesus, you want to do His work. This is the desire of your heart—to share His Gospel. You are not ashamed. He says that you are so adored. You may think you’re not good enough. That’s because you are not. But He is good enough! His Power is in you.

He will equip you for every good work through His God-breathed Word (2 Timothy 3:16-17 NIV). Next time you meet someone at an appointment, in a lunch room, or even at a retail store, ask Jesus, “Is this person here for such a time as this?”

Such a Time as This

For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place… And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?

–Esther 4:14 NIV

Pray for the Holy Spirit to keep you in step sharing His Word.

Pray for the inexpressible and glorious joy that God gives, your goal in faith, and the salvation of your soul.
