Esther 4:14

THE INWARD LIFE OF A STEWARD
Viewing Their Purpose

And who knows whether you have not attained royalty
for such a time as this?

In Esther 4, Mordecai is challenging Queen Esther to use her royal position to save the Jews from extinction. He told her, “And who knows whether you have not attained royalty for such a time as this (Esther 4:14, NASB)?” Against all odds, a Jewish woman becomes Queen in Babylon “for such a time as this.” What is your destiny? Why were you born at this time and in this place? Why did God make you just the way you are? Is your current existence merely a matter of random chance or has the Creator of universe put you here “for such a time as this”? God has given you a unique combination of talents and passions for a very specific purpose that only you can uniquely accomplish. There is something radically transformational when you finally get a glimpse of your destiny. Think about it.
