A Royal Request

Esther 4:13-14: “Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape. 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?” (Italics mine.) In reading Mordecai’s impassioned plea to Esther, I hadn’t noticed until pointed out to me that even though Mordecai feared for the lives of himself, Esther and their family, he still had faith in God’s deliverance of his people. Though he personally would lose his life, he knew God’s promises to his chosen people would not fail. In his time of despair, he never doubted God’s promises.

  1. Wow! Timely for me regarding being born for such a time as this and having faith. Maybe you see in the news that there is trouble with Round Rock ISD Board of Trustees and the new superintendent five of the seven board members voted to hire under suspicious circumstances. This is really a battle about first amendment right, open meetings laws so parents can express their opinions on agenda items AND an effort to keep CRT from making public students into racists…..and I am involved. At nearly 77 and retired, I sometimes ask myself why…but I am involved in supporting those who support free speech, true history and civics taught. God has given me two to do items in the past year: Be a peace maker not a door mat….and be different in the things that are important and don’t worry about what is not important. I depend on Him to show me how to do these…… Thanks!!!
