Esther had become Xerxes queen by a rare chance it seemed, but Haman had a plot to destroy her people. Esther was afraid to speak up and her cousin Mordecai told her "Do not think that because you are in the king's house you alone of all the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father's family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this?" (Esther 4:12-14)
God gives us the privledge of taking part when He is working out His plan for His glory. In times of testing of character, in times of perseverance, and in times of weakness, bask in such an opportunity to rise and meet the call of our King. We were created for such a time as this.
