Like Esther, we were each born for greatness. It does not matter your religion or where you live or come from. We all have greatness inside of us.
When Esther is about to go before the king in a plea to save her people, her cousin Mordecai, gave Esther courage in a fearful situation by saying to her, "Perhaps you were born for such a time as this".
We are all " Esther-like". What is our time? What life experience were we born for? How can we seize our opportunities for strength and greatness?
In my opinion, we have to turn to God and trust Him, Like Esther did. He will lead us and guide us and give us strength to face our greatest challenges, and help us face our greatest fears. We will come away, knowing us Esther did, that will deliver His people.
He will write a story for our lives, better than anything we could ever come close to on our own. As we do this, our lives will continually surprise us as we realize over and over again that we are capable of being and doing so much more than we ever realized.
