Day 10: Unwavering Faith


She didn't care

or maybe she cared too much

that she didn't make it about herself

as she took the BOLD step

& approached the King

without being invited.

Oh death is the immediate sentence

if one defies the King,

but she did it anyway

because she cared too much.

ESTHER~

one of the many wives of King Xerxes

who had one mission in mind~

to rescue her people

as she was one of them,

yet the King did not know.

ESTHER

dressed in BOLDNESS

because of A REAL GOD

who drove her to do the impossible.

"I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish” (Esther 4:16).

Those famous words of her, yet not her last~

because GOD was writing her story

and HE had a plan that was beyond what her eyes could see~

yet she did it anyway.

For she had to speak up

"For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish.

And who knows but that you have come to your royal position..."

And then her next famous words

"...FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS?” (Esther 4:14).

Oh ESTHER!

Oh you & I & everyone else

to be so BOLD by FAITH

because we care so much,

but not so much for ourselves

but for others

who need to experience

the

FREEDOM found in A REAL GOD

the moment HE enters into

the REAL LIFE of anyone

who calls upon HIS NAME

in the midst of impossibility

in the midst of fear

in the midst of uncertainty~

because FREEDOM is COURAGE

to do the impossible despite the impossible

because

it yokes you to the

REAL KING

who cared so much for all of us

that HE thought of HIMSELF last

so that "IF I PERISH I PERISH"

isn't finality

because

we know how our REAL STORIES end IN CHRIST~

"JESUS said to her,“I am the resurrection and the life.

The one who believes in me will live,

even though they die;

 and whoever lives by believing in me will never die

.Do you believe this?” (John 11:25-26)

Oh JESUS didn't say this to ESTHER as she was still in the Old Testament,

but she knew THE GOD of the testaments

that gave her the BOLDNESS & COURAGE

to take that step of

FAITH

that saved her people

and even herself.

REAL LIFE. REAL STORY. REAL GOD.

Is GOD calling you to take a BOLD step of FAITH

in this moment of time

despite the impossibility,

FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS?

Oh be an ESTHER and do it anyway

because IN HIM

there is

"NO IMPOSSIBLE WITH YOU" (listen to the song below)
