If you are struggling to find your purpose or wondering what the plan for your life is, I want you to consider the life of Hadassah, better known as Esther.
Mordecai sent this reply to Esther: “Don’t think for a moment that because you’re in the palace you will escape when all other Jews are killed. If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?
Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: “Go and gather together all the Jews of Susa and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will do the same. And then, though it is against the law, I will go in to see the king. If I must die, I must die.” So Mordecai went away and did everything as Esther had ordered him. – from Esther chapter 4
The plan God has for you may not look like anything you’ve imagined. Esther’s sure didn’t. It may not be obvious to you. His plan may be filled with challenges and obstacles. But I have no doubt that fulfilling his purpose will accomplish so much more than any plans of your own.
Take a moment today and ask your Redeemer to fulfill his purpose in your life. And let Him start that work today.
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. Eph. 2:10
The Lord will work out his plans for my life— for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me. Psalm 138:8
