You might have just read that and thought, “Yeah, that is for someone besides me!” That’s the first indication that this was meant for you today.
So often we are entering our ‘moment’ and it feels the exact opposite of what we think it should.
You see opportunity is so often wrapped in opposition that our opinion is that it isn’t what we should pursue. And then we miss it.
Opportunity isn’t necessarily the easy road.
If greatness were easy, everybody would have it.
You have to be able to see what is happening with the eyes of faith. Not the eyes that everyone else uses to see.
Want what everyone has? Just see what everyone else sees.
Esther was seeing what everyone else would see. An orphan girl that somehow got blessed to be where she was, yet in a horrific position to have a front row seat to see terrible things happen. She feels so responsible. But has no power to make a difference – or so she thinks.
The brink of the biggest problem you have ever faced might be the door of the most massive opportunity you have ever received.
When it seems like things are so beyond your control, that is when we are FORCED to acknowledge that God has done something amazing.
It was illegal and punishable by death for Esther to approach the king. Walking to what seemed like certain death, with God was a historic moment that caused her name to be inscribed in the faith halls of fame. She was obedient to do what seemed like the impossible at what seemed to be the worst time possible.
But God was pleased with her obedience.
But God favored her courageous footsteps.
But God knew something she didn’t.
She thought she was walking to doom. In reality, she was walking through a door of opportunity that God had ordained long ago.
She was afraid of dying herself. Instead she saved many from dying. She was chosen for such a time as this. And so are you.
Don’t let the dullness, sameness, challenge or hurt of today make you think that today is not the day that can bring the victory in your life. Open up the doors of opportunity. Shift you into the blessing you have glimpsed. And thrust you into the flood of favor that God has been planning for you.
You HAVE been created for such a time as THIS!
