(Esther 4:14) “For if you remain completely silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (NKJV)
The big issue today is not understanding God’s power; it’s understanding God’s purpose. The reason, without His purpose His power is seldom needed. We often look for the right thing in the wrong place. When you’re fulfilling God’s purpose, you won’t have to worry about the power. When Esther realized her purpose, she also realized a real, hidden power. Esther‘s life story teaches us that everyone needs a purpose in life. We don’t just need a what; we need a why because life becomes meaningless, directionless, and powerless without it. There is no dimension of success that will take the place of a God-given purpose in life.
There are benefits to intentionally living life the way God wants us to. He will give us purpose, help us develop discipline, and give a vision that will sustain us.
