If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?” – Esther 4:14 (NLT)
Esther was amazing, wasn’t she? It can be really easy to read her accounts in the Bible and long to do something big for God. But then you wonder, how do I start? And what should I do?
We can see from the life of Esther that she just did what she saw she could do. She saw that she could go talk to the king about the situation that the Jews were facing. And Esther did it, even though she was a little nervous about it.
The same is true for you. Often doing something BIG for God starts by doing something SMALL you can see to do. Big things don’t always start big. They start as you are willing to take one little step that you can see in front of you.
That’s what Esther did. She did what she could see to do in her life to help her people. And that small thing (talking to the king) turned into the exact thing her people needed to be rescued.
So today, don’t be discouraged if what you see to do in front of you looks small. Just do the step you see to do. As you do, the small thing turns often turns into a big thing.
