For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this? – Esther 4:14
Esther is the beautiful story of an improbable yet extraordinary young woman who dared to pursue her destiny despite all personal cost. Indeed, she had everything. She was queen of a great nation. But her destiny was not yet fulfilled.
Was Esther a TYPE of Jesus? Look again at her story:
God raises up a savior.
She gives her life selflessly, on behalf of her people.
Through her willingness to die for others, God’s enemies are defeated and God’s people are given life and honor.
She is vindicated and honored.
So too with Yeshua Jesus. God chose to accomplish the greatest triumph of human history through the lowliest of means: a pregnant virgin, a humble carpenter, an improbable savior who was rejected and crucified.
Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, He made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! – Philippians 2:6-8
Friend, Yeshua Jesus prayed for any other way, yet in obedience fulfilled His destiny and went to the cross for you and me.
My friend, I have another question that ONLY YOU CAN ANSWER:
Have YOU fulfilled your destiny in Christ? God is sovereign and He will accomplish His will with or without you. It is your choice.
For who knows, but that YOU have come to your position in life FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS.
