Memorise: …and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this? Esther 4:14b

Read: Esther 4:10-14 (KJV)

Bible In One Year: Ezekiel 17-19, Hebrews 13


In Esther 2:13-17, so many young and beautiful virgins entered in for a beauty pageant and Esther emerged winner and became queen. She initially did not know the purpose of her new status, but much later, when the Jews had their existence threatened, she worked hand in hand with Mordecai to bring about their deliverance. A non-Jewish virgin could have won the contest, but because God needed a vessel to facilitate the deliverance of His people, He chose Esther.

As a child of God, you were not chosen for yourself but to satisfy He who chose you. You were appointed to take care of God’s interests wherever you find yourself. Why are you pursuing your personal interests? Have you cared to find out from God why He brought you to the place you are? If you ask, He will reveal it to you. And when this is done, that revelation will be the drive that motivates you to achieve what He chose you for. May you not disappoint God. The Lord will open your eyes to see why He has put you where you are, and give you the grace to do His bidding.

Prayer Point: Father, help me to fulfil Your purpose for bringing me to where I am. May I never disappoint You in Jesus’ name.

Hymn 5:

1. Onward, Christian soldiers,
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before!
Christ, the Royal Master,
Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
See His banners go!

Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before!

2. At the Sign of triumph
Satan’s host doth flee;
On, then, Christian soldiers,
On to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver
At the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voices,
Loud your anthems raise!

3. Like a mighty army
Moves the Church of God;
Brothers, we are treading
Where the saints have trod;
We are not divided;
All one body we
One in hope and doctrine,
One in charity.

4. Onward, then, ye people,
Join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices
In the triumph song;
Glory, praise and honour,
Unto Christ the King;
This, through countless ages
Men and angels sing.
