The Book of Esther is an inspired book of a little woman who, at the moment of truth, made a life changing decision which changed the history of the Jewish people.
In the book of Esther there was a man who saw the future and took calculated steps towards it, Mordechai the Jew, Esther’s cousin who understood that his people needed somebody close to the king. He realized that the Jewish people were in danger.
And at the decisive moment he knew what advice to give Esther.
Advice that propelled her to a higher spiritual plane
Which helped her to act and save her people.
And what were those things
Which worked like a charm
Which raised her spiritual feeling
A few notches,
The sense of a mission,
Mordecai had the same message for Esther that I have for you today. “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place!”
“Who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for a time as this?” Esther 4:14
