“I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.”
In the Scripture, God raised up a Jewish orphan girl named Esther to become the queen of Persia. She could have been satisfied in her royal position, but a powerful official of the king had a law passed that all the Jewish people in the kingdom would be killed. Esther could have said, “I can’t risk my life by trying to intervene. I’ll just play it safe.” But she chose to put her life on the line, and in the process she saved her people.
Safe is not your destiny. Average is not what you’re called to be. Take on some challenges. Believe to advance the kingdom, to set new standards. God didn’t give you your talent, your personality, or your courage just to go to work, make a living, and feed your family. You are called for a cause. You are gifted for a cause. You are healthy for a cause. You are anointed for a cause. Don’t just build your kingdom, build God’s kingdom. Get involved in making a difference, and in your cause you’ll find your destiny.
