Today’s reading Esther 1-4

Esther 4:14 For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

Tragic times had come in the life of the nation of Israel. Esther was at the forefront of the problem. Mordecai knew that God would work things out. He knew that God had everything under control. The thought that crossed Mordecai’s mind was that God was at work and possibly this was exactly the time and purpose of what God wanted to do.

As we face things in our lives we must realize that God is at work and has a purpose for it all. We must realize that this test is His way of making Himself known and showing His power. Rest, trust God in what is happening in your life right now!
