History is replete with the power of one; with those who owned the rare commodity of moral courage—those daring individuals who were “willing to brave the disapproval of their fellows, the censure of their colleagues, and the wrath of their society.” Esther was one of those.
The plot is thickening. The Jews have been told that their days are numbered. This called for one person to stand alone in the gap. You guessed it: Esther.
Esther’s commitment to God and ability to do what seemed impossible gave me hope. My weight problem seemed small compared to what Esther faced. If she could do what needed to be done, so could I.
Do you need to take a stand against something or someone? Are you fearful of what may happen? Take a page from Esther’s story and ask the Lord for courage. He will give you the strength you need.
