Esther 5:14b: And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?”
And there she sat in the parking lot of Target, reasoning with God. “Lord, why doesn’t this man see me for who I really am?” Why does this relationship have to be hidden? Is he ashamed of me, am I not good enough for him. I’m smart and very beautiful. I am doing him a favor by even being bothered!
And God simply said “Why don’t you see yourself for who you really are?” “You are fearfully and wonderfully made, I knit you together in my secret place, not to hide you but to create your innermost being. I watched carefully over each detail of your life as I formed your body. I made you to shine and not to settle! If you trust me with this very small detail of your life, oh how much more, will I bless you! I will fulfill my purpose in you, I will walk with you through trouble, my love for you will endure forever! I will hem you in from the front and the rear. My hand will forever be laid upon you!”
And so I trusted God and walked into my royal position. Ask yourself, what do you need to get rid of. What heavy baggage have you been lugging around that doesn’t belong to you? Will you trust God to deliver you from the ordinary and bless you with the extraordinary?
