F260 Bible Reading Plan - Day 135

F260 Day 135: Esther 3-4

Esther 3-4

Haman, one of the king’s officials, receives a promotion. This promotion places him above all the other officials. In addition to this, everyone is to pay homage and bow down. Mordecai refused to do this because it would violate God’s commands. This angered Haman so much that he sought to have all Jews in the kingdom killed, instead of Mordecai alone. The king agreed and signed it into law that on a certain day all Jews would be attacked and killed. Mordecai reports this to Esther and asks her to go to the king to see if there is anything he can do to prevent this genocide.

It is at this point in the text that we can begin to see why God allowed Esther to become queen. At first it seems completely random, but we know he has plans and purposes that are sometimes greater than us. But Mordecai’s words ring true. Even if we fail to do what he has called us to do, if it is his plan, he will simply raise up someone else to accomplish the task. We have to trust where God has placed us and use the authority given to us to accomplish his means.

Where has God placed you so you can be used for his purposes?
