God has a time for each of you.

-A life defining moment
-A life-encompassing time

There will always be reasons why now is not the time.
If you step up when you know it’s your time, God will always step in at exactly the right time.

From the “Esther: An Unlikely Hero” series. Sermon 5 of 6

Esther 4:12-14 ESVAnd they told Mordecai what Esther had said. 13 Then Mordecai told them to reply to Esther, “Do not think to yourself that in the king’s palace you will escape any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

  • God has a time for each of you.
    • A life defining moment.
    • A life-encompassing time.

Acts 17:26 ESV And he made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined allotted periods and the boundaries of their dwelling place,

  • There will always be reasons why now is not the time.

Esther 4:11, 13-14 ESV“All the king’s servants and the people of the king’s provinces know that if any man or woman goes to the king inside the inner court without being called, there is but one law–to be put to death, except the one to whom the king holds out the golden scepter so that he may live. But as for me, I have not been called to come in to the king these thirty days.” … 13 ”Do not think to yourself that in the king’s palace you will escape any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish…

  • If you step up when you know it’s your time, God will always step in at exactly the right time.

Esther 4:16 ESV “Go, gather all the Jews to be found in Susa, and hold a fast on my behalf, and do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my young women will also fast as you do. Then I will go to the king, though it is against the law, and if I perish, I perish.”
