Today’s reading: Esther 7:1-6
Esther’s “for such a time as this” moment has arrived, and with God as her protector and guide, Esther handles herself and the situation well. We’re now to Esther’s second meal and the final piece of her plan to reveal Haman’s evil plot to King Ahasuerus and seek his favor and help. Showing wisdom beyond her years, Esther keeps her emotions in check as she humbly presents her request to the king, taking care to be accurate and factual with what she says. God’s presence as well as His leading of Esther’s every word and action are absolutely evident in this precarious situation.
How has God calmed your heart and guided you when you’ve faced a “mountain” situation? Is reaching out to God for His leading your default response when you encounter difficulty? What about when things are going well? Tami
