[The Glory Unveiled]
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 royal position for such a time as this?” ( Esther 4:14 )
Our positions in life are intended to serve as a platform for the benefit of others. But when in position, it is very common to have one’s opinions skewed as a result of that position. The statement in the scripture above was made by Mordecai, Esther’s Uncle. The Jewish tribe was under attack and Esther who was then occupying an “influential” position was called upon to help them. Mordecai explained that she [Esther] was probably in that position at the time because of their predicament but even if Esther refused to help, God could still save them through another person. No one is placed in any position just to occupy those positions; just to be silent and watch the wrong things happen. You are where you are to serve a purpose. And that purpose is to serve others. But when we refuse to carry out the mandate we are positioned to fulfill, God will choose another person to carry it out. Queen Vashti lost her royal position and Esther became Queen. That means anyone could be removed from their positions no matter how highly exalted they may seem. Guard your position by fulfilling your purpose because the only way to guard our positions is by fulfilling our responsibilities.
Prayer_Bead: Father in the name of Jesus, help me to responsibly fulfil my purpose. Teach me to honour my position and show me the needs around me to serve.
