Things never happen by chance.
God always has a plan and works in the background. Regardless, of the circumstances, the difficult job….home situation….He is working things out for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose #8:28.
The God who took you there does not slumber nor sleep. He sees each and every victory, each and every loss, each and every smile and each and every tear. He cares and has not forgotten.
In the book of Esther, Mordecai told Esther something that made her realize she was not just put there to sit and look pretty, I mean as a queen that was her J.D HOWEVER there was a bigger reason for her position in the palace.
Esther 4:14 ( Amplified Bible)14 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?
Many times God places us in places to work undercover 🙂 A Covert mission. E.g your desk job being a cover job for prayer or evangelism in the workplace.
The Covert mission does not always go unnoticed. Sometimes there are people who realize that your undercover mission is to let your light shine and they make it their job to frustrate you and make you quit. The important thing to remember is that He who took you there is faithful to save you and sustain you.
Now, what if He doesn’t save you?(Please note this does not in any way reflect on His strength)….Like Shadrack, Meshach and Abednego may the thing that you stand for be one worth standing for and dying for. Remember the furnace, we stand in awe of the Fourth man, the ‘Son of Man’. That the cry of your heart may be similar to Esther’s ‘If I perish, I perish’
Your positioning gives you something to leverage on.
Where is it that God has placed you?
Considering that there is a bigger purpose for your position in this place, what is the cry of the ‘Jews’ around you?
What can you do so that relief and deliverance may come to them?
Stand up, creation has been waiting in eager expectation for you the child of God to be revealed.
