The Moment Esther Came Alive

The Moment Esther Came Alive…

Esther was a beautiful, young Jewish woman who miraculously became queen of the Persian Empire. But she did so by hiding her Jewish identity, living, as it were in the closet. The day came when it was all put to the test.

A plan was set in motion to destroy all the Jewish people of Persia and the only one who could stop it was Esther. But to stop it she would have to reveal her true identity as a Jewish woman and risk losing her wealth, her position, and her very life.

What was she to do? The practical and expedient thing to do was to keep living a lie, and save her position and her life. But instead, she said, “If I perish, I perish.” What she meant was this: there comes a point where you have to decide to stop compromising, and to stop living a lie.

When you live to survive, you’re just existing. Come to that blessed point where you say, “Enough already! I’m through with compromising. I’m through with fear. From now on I live a life worth living or I don’t live at all. And if I perish, I perish.”

“Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.” Esther 4:16

Today, decide to ‘Stop’ doing that one thing that’s keeping you from living the life that God has called you to.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
