I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful October weather! As I looked out my window this morning I noticed some yellow leaves on the ground and then saw the beautiful leaves on a tree outside turning yellow. Isn't our GOD so creative?! I mean the leaves change colors and fall off the trees in the fall and don't you just love those pretty fall colors?! The Lord has blessed us so much and sometimes we are so busy that we do not even notice the work God is doing. Do you get so busy that sometimes you don't even pay attention to what you are supposed to be doing? I know I do...we get so focused on what has to be done here and now that we lose focus on what we are really here to do. We are here to glorify God with our lives. He wants us to bring our life like a sacrifice to Him and tell Him that whatever He wants is what we want. This is very hard and something that we all need to work on. I think so many times we get focused and think "earthly" when God wants us to think "eternally." We need to focus on what God wants us to do and not get so tangled and busy in things that really do not matter eternally. You see, eternally, it really does not matter what job we had or what car we drove or how many friends we had... but it is does matter how much we honored God with our lives and how much time we spent with Him and how many lives we witnessed to, those things do matter. You see we must not forget that God has us where we are, "for such a time as this."
In Esther 4, we are reminded that God has us where we are in life, "for such a time as this." What time in your life are you going through right now...whatever it is...God is there.
Esther 4:14- "For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?"
