I Samuel 16:7; Proverbs 9:9
Scripture Text: Esther 4:14
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?
. . . for Such a Time as This
Summary: The challenge Esther received is found in Esther 4:14 and it may very well be the challenge that our Savior has for you at this point in your life.
Why are you positioned where you are?
Why do you work where you work?
Why do you live where you live?
Why do you go to school where you go to school?
Why do you go to church where you go to church?
You do what you do because God has assigned you there - and here - "for such at time as this."
Every now and then, we find ourselves at a moment in time that might be called a "pivot point" in history. In sports we call it the time for a big play - the time when the game is on the line.
In the military, it's "D-Day" - the battle that will win or lose the war.
In business, it's the sale that will put you over the top and into the black for the fiscal year.
When I think of what's happening in our culture right now and consider that we are standing tiptoe on the edge of a new year and anticipate the opportunities that lie ahead for our church then I believe that we are at a strategic moment in time.
You and I are here with the opportunity of a lifetime.
You are where you are for such a time as this because . . .
Reason 1. God's people are in distress.
In 538 BC, the Jews who were exiled in Persia were allowed to return to Jerusalem to rebuild their temple. But many exiles were reluctant to leave the relative security of Persia.
Reason 2. God's person has been discovered.
Here was a little girl who must have cried her heart out longing for a mommy and a daddy. Years later, though, she would become key to the very survival of her people. She was God's person. And in spite of her past, in spite of her broken-ness, God used her. And He can do the same for you!
Reason 3. God's power is on display.
Esther had asked for prayer and fasting to prepare for the moment when the doors to the Throne Room opened and she walked through the door.
