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 NIV
Have you ever had a secret that you lived behind? Have you ever wondered if your secret could be revealed and then used by the Lord?
I can’t help but to wonder if Esther ever felt isolated by her secret? Did she feel lonely while estranged from her family? Or did she feel privileged because she was chosen for royalty?
Esther could have denied Mordecai and her people. She could have lived in denial of her secret. However, she chose to take a stand; even though, revealing being a Jew should have resulted in her death.
Despite her social status, she knew that she wouldn’t have power over the revelation of her secret. Yet, she chose to stay true to her identity. She did not forget who she was.
Let us not forget our identity in Christ. God has a plan for such a time as this. He uses all of us, if we take a stand and allow his truth to be revealed. Ultimately, he wants us to chose life through the revelation of who he is. Allow the Lord to be revealed to you and those around you today. Participate in this moment here on earth. God is no secret. He wants to use us for the glory delivered by his works.
