Time To Step UpEsther 4:14 For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father*s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?
People around the world will celebrate the feast of Purim, which celebrates the deliverance of the Jewish people from one of many of Satan*s attempts to purge them from the world. Mordechai gave Esther a great challenge then, *and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such as time as this?*
This is a challenge for all of us! As each generation is raised up, God appoints men and women to rise up to the challenge of that age. We are alive in this day and in this hour (an amazing day and hour, at that) and God is saying, *Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?* He is awaiting those who will come forward and say *Hineni* here am I, in Hebrew! And if we fall short of this challenge, *enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father*s house shall be destroyed:*
Let*s not let that happen -- God wants to use us! Let*s rise to the occasion! God has great things ahead!
