THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
FAVOR IS GIVEN TO FULFILL YOUR PURPOSE AND TO ADVANCE GOD’S KINGDOM
Esther was a Jewish orphan girl who was living in exile in Persia. It didn’t LOOK as though she would ever do anything GREAT. But God raised her up to become the queen over many OTHER women who came from WEALTH, INFLUENCE, and BEAUTY. God’s FAVOR caused her to stand OUT, and it shows that FAVOR is MORE powerful than your RESUME. FAVOR took her from the back to the FRONT. Later, Esther used her position to SAVE the Jewish people from a plot to DESTROY them. I believe one REASON God gave her such PROMINENCE is that He KNEW she would use the influence to fulfill her PURPOSE.
FAVOR is not about having a bigger house, a better car, or more STUFF. That’s NOT why God is going to FAVOR you. FAVOR is given to fulfill your PURPOSE. It’s to advance His KINGDOM. When your dreams are tied to helping OTHERS, to making the world a better PLACE, to LIFTING the fallen, you will come into some of those “such a time as this” MOMENTS.
Esther 4:14, NLT
Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?
