Kingdom of God – 3
Kingdom of God – 3
In the above passage, we see the Lord God uses the emperor and the whole cabinet to fulfill his purpose. In order to save his children, the Lord’s kingdom works to bring in goodness in their lives. In Proverbs 21:1 ‘’ As recorded in this verse, the Lord will change the hearts of the people in authority to make our lives easier. Today, let us meditate on how the Lord dealt with Esther in the days of Ahasuerus to fulfill his purpose.
During the times, there was a law put in place where fair young virgins were wanted for the King. We see Esther was also brought to the king’s house due to this law. Our Lord God prepares a law in order to call Esther to King’s place. The great calling comes in search of Esther and she accepts the calling. Esther did not ignore the calling from the Lord and submits herself for God’s will. When Esther submits herself to the calling, the Lord makes a lot of changes in the kingdom. We see Esther replaces the queen Vashti according to the purpose of the Lord. In Esther 6:10 ‘’ We see Mordecai who stood along with Esther who had the calling was also exalted. Esther was faithful in her calling and which is main reason she was crowned. As we read in I Thessalonians 5:24 ‘’ When we remain truthful to him, our Lord will fulfill his purpose and will bless us.
Even in our lives, we must learn to accept the opportunities from the Lord. We the children of God should remain faithful to the divine calling of the Lord.
Over here we see Esther was purified as she was chosen by the King. The people in the King’s house purified her by making her look the best to meet the King. The Lord prepares Esther to be sanctified to fulfill his purpose. As we read in I Peter 3:4 ‘’ The inner attributes or nature is what defines us and that is counted as beauty according to the scripture.
Esther 2:20 ‘’ Although Esther becomes the queen, she did not fail to obey Mordecai like in her old days. Despite of being exalted, Esther did not change her nature. The character remained the same as the consecration prepared her for the next big step. Even in our lives, the Lord will sanctify us to prepare for his calling. The church acts as a center to train ourselves to act according to the purpose of the Lord.
We see Esther who was an orphan was exalted to reside at the Castle. When she was assigned certain work at the Castle, she was quite contented with what was given to her. This revealed her true character of being accepting to what was assigned on her. We read this in Esther 2:15 ‘’ Her sheer nature elevated her in the king’s place to fulfill the purpose of the Lord.
Even in our lives, when we are exalted we must pray and analyze the hidden reason behind it. Only then we will fulfill the purpose of the Lord.
In the above passage, we see Esther was given an authority by the Lord God. Esther who remained faithful to her calling was finally put in charge for many countries. As we read in Daniel 4:17 ‘’ We need to understand that God’s kingdom works on earth and shifts things according to his will. According to scripture, the Lord kingdom will give his children a divine power over certain things on earth. This we read in Mark 16:17-18 ‘ ’ When we believe in word of God, nothing and no one can stop the establishment of the kingdom of God. We the children of God should have faith that Lord will put us in charge over many things. By the authority of God’s kingdom, we will use it in this world like Esther to fulfill the purpose of the Lord. Amen.
