Something to think about.
Such a Time as This
14 For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14
Often for fear or for want of peace and personal security, we remain silent. Most of us will never be, as Esther was, in the king’s court or in a position of influence to effect national policy. However, God will someday ask you to stand for Him in the midst of an uncertain outcome. It may not be in a situation of national survival as in the story of Esther. But it will be in a situation that will cost you everything as it did with Esther. Will you stand or will you fold and let the deliverance come from another. It is at this time that you will know who it is you love what it is you believe. It will most probably not be a physical threat as with Esther, but it will be a spiritual crisis of eternal significance. It will be your time it will be your moment it will determine your eternal destination. Will you have the courage, the spiritual fortitude to stand alone for God, not knowing the outcome? Will you choose to remain in silent obscured security, or will you accept your call to stand in full unencumbered exposure for the purposes of God? “For such a time as this.”
