“The king loved Esther more than any of the other young women, and she became his favorite. He approved of her more than any of the others. So King Xerxes put a crown on Esthers head and made her the new queen in place of Vashti. And the king gave a big party for Esther. It was for all his important people and leaders. He announced a festival in all the provinces and sent out gifts to people, because he was a generous king.” Esther 2:17-18
What a beautiful picture of the lavish love of God. The bible says that He formed you in your mothers womb. You were created for greatness. You are royalty. A son/daughter of the King. He has commanded blessings on you, He’s simply waiting for you to take your place in His Kingdom and move in the authority He’s given you.
Humility, love and compassion will cause people to take notice, but will heap on you the favor of the King of kings and the Lord of lords. As you demonstrate His glory to the world, things will begin to change around you and in you.
Romans 12:2 says it like this; Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.
Father, may we shine in all we do as we were created to. May we bring hope to a lost and dying world. Its what we were born for! Teach us how to use our authority as You meant for us to. Activate Your Word in us by the power of Your Holy Spirit which is always working in us. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
