Esther 4:14 (NIV)
And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?
Esther proved her worth through patience, modesty and belief. Though in captivity, she prepared herself and made it possible for God to move when he (God) was ready. The key here is this! When we go through any type of affliction, or find ourselves in the valleys of the shadows of death, we must maintain our bearings and still believe in his sovereignty. The worst situation would be to miss your deliverance and promotion when the time comes. We must not miss our timing! Someone reminded me today: affliction will not come a second time. Get Ready.
Help us to stay resolute when the hard times arise and when our captives seem to gain the upper hand. Let us discern the times and wait upon you O Lord. In Jesus’ name I pray
