As we embrace the gift of this day, I pray you are filled with joy despite circumstances knowing the victory has been won on the cross and God has us here for such a time as this. We must remember His purpose for us and why He's called us here on this earth for this time. I love this reminder from Esther. There is an amazing song by Mandessa called Born for this that will bless you.
And that’s the “for such a time as this” God also sets before you and me.
God has given each of us a job, position, resources, education and more. God has opened opportunities to optimize His kingdom purposes. He didn’t place you or me where we are so we could self indulge all day long or post pictures on social media. He’s placed us wherever we are because we are in the midst of a battle, a war. You and I are in the midst of a seismic conflict involving good versus evil.
To miss a kingdom assignment because we’ve become too caught up in our personal kingdom is one of the greatest tragedies we could ever face. An entire nation was grateful for how Esther responded to Mordecai’s rebuke. Their lives were spared. How many souls can be spared in the culture where we live today when we choose to step up to service, even if it involves sacrifice?
Lord, turn our hearts and minds toward You and toward the role You have chosen for us to live out. Help us to put Your will and Your purpose ahead of our own. We humbly bow before You and ask for Your direction and guidance, as well as Your courage to live out the calling we've been given for such a time as this.
In Your Name We Pray,
Friends We were made for such a time as this! Remnant army! Raise us up Lord! Show us who we are in You. We say yes to what You have called us for, for Your Kingdom, and for Your glory. We will go where You want us to go. We will say what You want us to say. Guide our steps. Put Your words in our mouths. Your word I have hidden in my heart Lord, for such a time as this.
