Esther 4:14 “For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”
Esther 5:3 “Then said the king unto her, What wilt thou queen Esther? And what is thy request? It shall be even given thee to the half of the kingdom.”
God could have sent Esther to 21st century America to stand up to the kings of this world. Though it took a bit of prodding for her to stand up for her people and her God in her country, she courageously did so and her courage was rewarded.
It may take a bit of prodding for us to stand up for our people and our God in our country. Consider this the prod. We have been placed here for such a time as this. We have nowhere else to turn. We have no one else to rely upon. We are it, and God desires that we would courageously stand up to the kings of this world. Our courage will be rewarded.
PLEASE PRAY THAT EACH CHRISTIAN WOULD RECOGNIZE OUR PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY TO STAND FOR GOD IN OUR LAND. When we courageously stand up to the king, we may find our requests given unto us. Esther did.
