For Such A Time As This

Esther 4:14 “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?” Why are you positioned where you are? Why do you work where you work? Why do you live where you live? Why do you go to school where you go to school? Why do you go to church where you go to church? God created you for a divine appointment, a unique role to fulfill in your life just like Esther. There is something you can do for God that no one else can do a God-given niche only you can fill. God has placed you where you are, not just to enjoy the benefits of life but to build His kingdom, to help His people, to fulfill His purposes. Since God made us, then, our goal should be to understand, and become, what He has made us to be. Our objective should be to discover, and to live out His purposes for us as His creatures. Only then will we find real fulfillment. It may surprise you to know that God had in mind a plan and a purpose for you long before you ever arrived on this planet. In fact, even before the world was created, He knew what He wanted to accomplish in and through your life. Whether or not you were aware of it; whether or not you even cared; God had a plan for you from the very beginning. In order for us to fulfill our divine appointment in such a time as this, we must be willing to let go of the selfishness. We’ve got to let go of our need to be in control. We’ve got to let go of our telling God when it is convenient in our schedules to serve Him. We’ve got to sacrifice our time, our talent, and our treasure. God is looking for a sacrificial heart. God knows everything about you and sees you as His masterpiece, and will never give up on creating you to be everything He created you to be. So, give permission to God to take control of your life. Until you discover your purpose your existence will have no meaning because purpose is the source of fulfillment and life without purpose is life without meaning. What are you here for at this moment and why should be at this location at a time like this? Find it out and ask for grace to fulfill the purpose.
