Esther - Such a time as this?

13 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. 14 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?” - Esther 4:13-14

If we keep looking towards the future, we may miss out on the blessings of the present.
If we keep looking to the past, we may carry unneccessary burdens into today.
The greatest challenge for us is to reflect on why God has allowed us to be alive for the PRESENT. 
Is it possible that we were created for such a time as this?

What do you think?
What are you going to do about the challenges that lie ahead?

Living in Grace
