Obtain Favor & Kindness
Oh happy 32nd day! 32 speaks of covenant. The secret of the LORD is for those who fear Him, And He will make them know His covenant - Psalms 25:14
Today, we look at Esther, she entered the palace gates through covenant. Esther learned to trust and heed the voice of Mordecai and others in her life. The decree went forth from King Ahasuerus for all beautiful ladies to appear before his overseer. Mordecai knew Esther had a destiny bigger than he could provide so he brought her forth - she was chosen. Esther entered the Kings courts and for one year went through a beautification process. It was during this process Esther found favor and was shown kindness. She learned to heed and trust the voice of the eunuch; he knew the 'how' the 'what' and the 'when' of getting an audience with the King.
Wear Your Crown
Esther through covenant relationships obtained the crown; wearing her crown gave her access before the throne to petition the King hereby saving her people.
Esther 2:17 The king loved Esther more than all the women, and she found favor and kindness with him more than all the virgins, so that he set the royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.
Being Crowned Means
- Consecration: set apart for a particular task or calling.
For such a times as this
Esther 4:14 " For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place and you and your father's house will perish. And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this?"
My Beloved, you have been summoned to my chamber. Come in and receive the crown I have for you. I have set you apart for My service. I have adorned you with the crown of authority, righteousness and power. Through my Son you have the Victory; now go forth for such a time as this! Release My life, My unfailing love! Release My favor and grace to all you meet. Could it be that through your prayers and actions a people could be saved? Could it Be? Wear your crown, take up My cause and watch and see what I will do, says the Lord.
Declare: I have been crown for signs and wonders; for such a time as this! (Is. 8:8)
