handsI’ve been digging deep into the Word. There hasn’t been a time ever in my life that I have been as captivated by the things of God as I am now. We all take paths that lead us to where we are. We are lead by a series of our own choices and awakenings. I’ve come alive to God’s Word through choosing to become disciplined enough to dive into it. What took me so long?

I’ve been struck with the notion that sometimes when I teach Bible study or speak to a group of women I have a tendency to discuss the stories of the Bible surrounded by huge events.

Abraham fell on his face under the power of God, Moses had a burning bush to fuel the fire of God in his heart, and Paul was knocked off his animal and blinded while hearing the audible voice of Jesus Christ.

There have been moments where I’ve thought that if God did something as big in my life as He did for people of the Bible, then my important life decisions would be much easier to make. I could benefit from hearing God’s audible voice. What about you? But then conviction takes over as I recognize that each life is just as important as the next and just because God speaks to someone audibly or sets a bush ablaze doesn’t mean my life has any less value to Him. He has a plan for me.

Learning to trust God through faith and obedience will lead to blessing.

Queen Esther didn’t have a huge moment where God spoke to her audibly. She didn’t have a burning bush. She only had the encouragement of Mordecai mingled with faith and obedience.  She had to resign herself to the fact she might die. Esther’s words were, “If I perish I perish.” Esther 4: 16 (N.K.J.V.)

That, my friends, is what you call courage.

Mordecai asked Esther a question. “Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14 (N.K.J.V.)

And I have this to say to you…

Every time you speak into the lives of your children, husband, friends, or strangers, it is for such a time as this. The choices you are faced with are for such a time as this.

Your life has purpose and God has a divine plan tailored for you. Whether you reach one or one million, God will use your life for such a time as this. Every moment, every breath is important. It all means something.

You were meant for today, for this moment, for this one life you’ve been given.

Be obedient, be a blessing, and glorify God for such a time as this.



PS: There will be more details about the Mercy Waits Retreat soon! Will you join us for such a time as this?
