Esther has a story that has inspired millions of people. Women and men world-wide can rejoice that we have this awesome example of a female who was beautiful inside and out. She showed that physical attractiveness is not enough to get the job done in life. To really be all you can be, you need to have a reverent and devotional spirit unto God and a character that is stable and rational. When the lives of Esther and her people became threatened, instead of backing up into a position of fear and hysteria, she became the epitome of 2 Timothy 1:7. The Queen did not have a spirit of fear! Absolutely not!! She demonstrated power, love and a sound mind…….a deep and undisturbed mind……When her uncle, Mordecai, let her know that death and destruction were upon them, Esther did not panic; instead, she stayed calm, cool and collected; quickly deciding to command prayer and fasting FIRST!!! Then, she humbly and courageously went forward with a plan that did not have a guaranteed outcome. A plan in which she would have to lead in the battle to save Jewish lives; a plan in which, unless God intervened, she might surely perish in her trying. It is a classroom experience to see how she volleys back and forth with her uncle, Mordecai, as they work together to go to war against their enemy. I enjoyed this discussion immensely on our BlogTalk Radio show: Devoted To HIM with Misti Long. I hope you will get stirred up all over again about how God used this courageous beauty Queen to save our spiritual ancestors from death. God Bless and let’s thank Him for Esther’s leadership savvy, awareness and spiritual intelligence.
