Hello and Welcome to The Gathering, Daughters of the Living King, where women seek to know and experience the love of Christ. I am your host, Judy Killebrew, and my experience and passion is in encouraging and empowering women and their walk of faith with the Lord. Hebrews 10:25 states “and let us not neglect our meeting together, as some people do, but encourage one another, especially now that the day of his return is drawing near.”
Today we are going to discuss the life lessons from the book of Esther. I encourage you to read the book of Esther and I am going to give you a brief synopsis of this book but this is a brief summary and does not go into the great details of the lessons of the book.
“For if you remain silent at this time, liberation and rescue will arise for the Jews from another place, and you and your father’s house will perish [since you did not help when you had the chance]. And who knows whether you have attained royalty for such a time as this [and for this very purpose]?” Esther 4:14

This verse is a reminder to us that God has a unique purpose for each and every one of our lives. In fact, “Perhaps you were born for such a time as this”. Like Esther, we can trust the Lord for wisdom. God placed Esther at the right place, at the right time. And like Esther we must trust completely in God and be available to take on the challenges of life. Like Esther, we can overcome difficulties, not in our own strength but through God’s strength. Like Esther, we can gain confidence in God’s protection and provision and have gratitude for what we have been given. Our God is in control and through His divine guidance, He cares over our lives.
We should “Never assume we are too insignificant for God to use!”
Esther was an orphan whose mother had died in childbirth and her father had died during her mother’s pregnancy. She lived in a time when Israel was in post captivity of Babylon. Esther’s parents may have been among those Jewish exiles who chose not to return to Jerusalem because of the great freedom that Persia provided.
In reality, Esther was just an adopted daughter of a cousin living in a foreign land. Other than her beauty, she was not unique in any way. Her Jewish heritage was a minority race that was frowned upon and, at times, scorned and despised by other nations. But God, I love that…….But God! used Esther to carry out His plan on a day in the Kingdom of Persia. This was a plan that God had ordained before Esther was even born.
God does have a grand design and is sovereign over every area of our life. With God in charge, we can take courage that He will guide us through the circumstances we face in our lives for His plans. Jeremiah 29:11 states “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord. They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
Friends, each one of us has the choice each day to submit to our Living King’s will, and go, when and where, He calls us.
