A Time Such as This- Ayo Oritsejafor

“For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place…”  (Esther 4:14)

When Mordecai learnt from Esther’s messenger that she was unwilling to risk her life for her people, he did not give up. Rather, he made Esther to realize that God had a purpose for making her a Queen at the particular time in the history of the Jews.

God raised you up in the Kingdom for a time like this. God has called you for a particular purpose, no matter where you find yourself. The question that you should ask yourself is, “Am I fulfilling the purpose of God in my life?”

As you read this devotional, I want you to know that you are not dead because God has a purpose for your life. The reason you find yourself in that position, office, business, school, marriage, etc is for the purpose of God to be fulfilled. Do not take the Grace of God in your life for granted. Remember, Esther got to the throne by Grace but she almost missed the purpose why God placed her on the throne.

Many people whom God has lifted tend to forget where they are coming from and fail to fulfill the purpose of God in their lives. Do you know that in the work of God, no body is indispensable? God has raised you up for such a time like this. The world is aching and only the purpose of God can preserve us.

PRAYER/CONFESSION: Father in the name of Jesus, let your favour fall on me like rain. In your mercy cause your purpose for my life to be clear to me.

FURTHER READING: Esther 3:8-9; 4:16, Hosea 9:17, Esther 4:14

WORDS OF WISDOM: It is only the purpose of God for you that can keep you going in Life.
