FOR SUCH a TIME as THIS

“And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?” (Esther 4:14)

 

 

Such was the challenge which Mordecai gave to Esther during the time of crisis. Esther would have to place her own life in danger, going in before the king to plead for her people. But it must be acknowledged that God had brought her to this point, placed her in this position where she could be of tremendous benefit to her own for just “such a time as this.” Esther faced up to the challenge, and God wrought victories, making a way where there had seemed to be no way out.

 

 

In every age, for every time, purpose, and situation, God has always had His man or woman on the scene to be His instrument to bless, challenge, correct, or whatever the need required. While there is a sense of destiny which rests upon God’s apprehended ones today, with a view to that which we are becoming in Christ, to be revealed in due time, there must also be a sense of present responsibility to balance us, for the future is strongly anchored to that which we are TODAY, and how we face up to our walk in such a time as this. ”Being predestinated according to the purpose of Him who worketh all things after the counsel of His own will.” (Eph. 1:11)

 

 

For as great a task as that of leading Israel out of Egypt, God chose Moses, and then prepared him through forty years in the king’s palace, and forty more years on the backside of the desert, but ready at the right moment for the task. Usually, we view all the preparations with an eye on the final “deliverance hour,” but there must needs be a present “time such as this” when he was only tending the sheep, and his faithfulness was proven in that processing, While the spotlight shines on the leader produced, little is said or known of the faithful, who through faith in God, daily cry unto Him for deliverance, and at the same time minister courage and comfort to their brethren to hold them steady until that hour. This behind the scene ministry is also vital for such a time as this. Lord, I am yours for TODAY.
