This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Acts 20:24 (NLT)
Today I want you to know that you were born for such a time as this.
We’ve all acknowledged how we had no idea that 2020 would be stricken with the pandemic, but God knew. I’d even take that a step further. I was born in the 60s. God knew back then that COVID-19 would happen during my lifetime. As spiritual beings, we know that nothing happens by chance. Thus, there’s no coincidence that you were born for such a time as this.
When I think about how events are shaped by more than just chance, I recall Esther’s story. What is particularly interesting about the book of Esther is that it never mentions God by name, even though you can see His meticulous hand throughout the book.
Esther was a young Jewish girl who was chosen to replace Queen Vashti. The fact that Esther was Jewish was a huge secret; it wasn’t even known to the king.
Not long after Esther was crowned queen, a decree went out to exterminate all Jewish people. Esther needed to approach the king and make an appeal for the lives of the Jewish people without revealing her own identity.
Her cousin Mordecai told her that she had been elevated to the palace for such a time as this. In the end, God perfectly positioned her to not only save herself but the Jewish people too.
Has God ensured you were born for such a time as this because He wants to use you, but He’s just waiting on you now? Tune into the Blues to Blessings YouTube channel as I share three insights on what could be holding you back.
Before you do, remember these words: “…my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus…” Acts 20:24 (NLT)
