Esther was an amazing woman in the Bible. She was bold and daring. When it really mattered, she stood up for those around her who needed it.
Esther could have remained silent and not said anything. Honestly, that probably would have been a lot easier for her. She would have been more comfortable and wouldn’t have faced the threat of death. Instead, Esther chose to stand up for her people and her faith.
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
In life, we have moments where we can choose to participate with God. We can choose His plan and His purpose, or we can choose to be silent and do what seems easier.
If you want to do big things for God, however, you’ve got to choose to participate with God.
So today, if you’ve been silent for your faith or been afraid to take the next step in your relationship with God, don’t be. Determine to not let fear rule your life. Step out in faith and see what God can do in you.
