For Such a Time as This - Esther 4:14-16

God is moving and I know that we are apart of God’s plan. For some of us that makes us real anxious. Maybe it’s the unknown of what God has instore for us.

God knows our circumstances and no matter what we face, we have no excuse to not answer the call of God.    God has brought us to this point in life 'for such a time as this'.

These are two of the most challenging questions one can ask:

Why am I here, right now and in this place?

What is my life all about anyway?

READ: Esther 4: 14-16

Many if not all of us may never be called into situations for the Lord that may cost us our lives. But we should live our lives with the same passion/desire to serve our Lord.

Maybe God is preparing you for the job of making a difference in someone’s life. Don’t let the devil lie to you and tell you that you are no good to the kingdom of God, that there is nothing left you can do.

Perhaps all of your life has been planned out-executed and led to this very time-in this very place-for one all-important purpose. God’s purpose/plan for YOU!

God’s power is not found in our physical appearance or physical abilities. He doesn’t need our help to accomplish his work. But he chooses to use us in his own way. Scripture says 'We are his workmanship and there is a purpose in everything that we face in life.'

We have to understand that God knows our strengths and he knows our weaknesses? We need to understand that “his strength” is made perfect in our weakness? Who knows what great things God has planned for your life down the road? God takes the weak and small and makes them into great and mighty warriors for his kingdom.

Don’t look at your circumstances right now. Look at the promises of God. Have faith in what he can do in his own time. We often miss God’s best because we can only focus on what is not instead of what can be, or what is! God is preparing you for something special and that time will come when you will be used mightily for God.

You are God’s personal creation and his love for you knows no bounds. God will take your life that at times may seem to be falling apart give it new life new hope and a brighter tomorrow.

You are being prepared and you have been prepared   “For such a time as this.”  God won’t accept any excuse for not doing what he has called us to do. He has given you everything you will ever need to fulfill His purpose.

He wants you to be willing to step out in faith and do whatever it takes no matter what the cost, no matter how much it hurts or how inconvenient it may be. To chase after Him and the plan He has for you. If we truly profess to be God’s people with the call of God upon our lives then we must be about our Father’s business. God has called each of us  “For such a time as this.”

Don’t spend another year making excuses. We only get one life to live. You only get one chance to do it right.
