For Such a Time as This {Something to Think About}

“…And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14 NIV)

I don’t know many people pondering their royal position, but I do know some, including myself, who wonder “What’s going on here?!?” Why do I have to be involved in this situation? Why is everything around me changing? Why can’t someone else take care of this?

Like Esther, sometimes God leads us to a place we don’t want to be in. We’d rather stay where we are comfortable, doing things our own way. We can resist and drag our heels, or even refuse by continuing on our own path. But what will we miss? What if God wants to use us in His work and we refuse the opportunity? We may never know why or see the outcome of His plan, but what if God is moving us to a place for such a time as this?

I’m linking up today with Fresh Brewed Sundays. Please visit again tomorrow when I begin a three-part series on acceptance. On Monday, I’ll post Part 1—Pray for Acceptance.

In Christ,
Laura
