FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS
We have heard of the scripture in the book of Esther where Mordecai tells Esther
…”and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this.”
We can be sure of this, that the God of the universe, Yahweh, himself knows everything. He is the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end. He knows everything. It was no accident or chance that Esther was born when she was. God had a divine appointment for her and gave her a godly uncle to train her in the things of God. Yes, God orchestrated everything, and because of her obedience to the “call”, she saved her people. She will be eternally remembered as the one that risked her life by going before the king.
There are no accidents with God. You are not an accident. You were born when you were born with a divine assignment. I want you to think of Mary, the mother of Jesus. She wasn’t born in a King’s palace, although she had the blood of King David in her bloodline. She was a young, innocent girl that God used to birth the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Was she expecting this to happen? I seriously doubt it, but God had Mary’s “for such a time as this” plan.
Then think of King David. He had the job of taking care of sheep, away from his family, but God raised him up to be a King. There were warriors in his family, and they were all older than he was, but God looked at David’s heart. After being anointed three different times, David came into his “for such a time as this” and was made king!
Do not ever underestimate what God wants to do to you and through you. He is not looking for perfect vessels to do it through. He is looking for yielded vessels that are willing to follow His plan.
Were you born now with a purpose? Absolutely. God is orchestrating things for you even as I write this. Do not try to reason or figure it out. Spend time with those that have paved the road with wisdom and let them impart into you the necessary equipping that will bring you to maturity. Don’t rush God. Jesus was born in “the fullness of time”. Not one minute early, and not one minute late. You were born for such a time as this. As you seek Him, he will show you the plan. Who knows, you may be the one that changes everything in your family because of your being born. Trust God for the outcome for your “such a time as this.”
