Catapulted By Grace
And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins; so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti. Esther 2:17(KJV)
Esther though a slave girl and an orphan rose to the position of being a queen in a foreign country. Think about it! I am a firm believer that the only way Esther could get to that level of prominence, was because the grace of God was at work in her life. Beloved, the same grace that took away the reproach of slavery from Esther would work for you. The scriptures also tell us that David, though an ordinary shepherd boy was catapulted by the grace of God from the backside of the wilderness to the throne of Israel. What is that saying to you? Beloved, God is faithful because what He has done for one is an evidence of what He will do for another. That is why I know that you will not be denied. You have heard the testimonies of others; let me also assure you that the world will hear yours also.
I encourage you to continually serve God with all your heart and all your strength. God will never fail to reward your labour. The bible says in Galatians 6:9 And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not and in Hebrews 6:10 For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward His name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
I charge you today to refuse to focus on challenges and contrary situations because they are temporal and subject to change. Do not join the company of those who serve God only when it is convenient. I come to challenge you to give whatever you are doing in the kingdom your best shot always. The assignment given to you cannot fail. Always remember that in spite of what you may be going through, God is still depending on you. As you continue in your place of service, He will come through for you; grace will speak for you and catapult you to heights far beyond your wildest imagination.
