TOPIC: GIVE IT YOUR ALL
TEXT: ESTHER 4:16 “Go,gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or Night. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I Perish!…”
Esther, a Jewish girl married to a pagan king, broke with long-standing tradition, marched into her husband’s throne room, spoke her mind, and rescued her people from annihilation. One girl saved a nation because she was willing to put everything on the line. Are you feeling inadequate today? Are you thinking, ‘Someone else should be doing this job instead of me’? How many people did it take to rescue the dying man on the Jericho Road? One Good Samaritan. How many people did it take to confront Pharaoh and lead the exodus out of Egypt? One man, Moses.
Do you know God has put a dream inside you. It’s yours and no one else’s. It declares your uniqueness. It holds your potential. Only you can give birth to it. Only you can live it. Not to discover it, take responsibility for it and act upon it is to negatively affect yourself as well as all those who would benefit from your dream. In your twilight years,( last year of one’s life) will you look back and feel like you’ve spent your life struggling to fulfil other people’s expectations? Or know that you lived it to the fullest by striving to fulfil your God-given dream? Think about it now, while there’s still time to change direction.Thank God for His everlasting Love inside you. Your full potential from Jesus will ultimately actualize His purpose for your generation. Are you willing to give your life in an attempt to save your country? For the sake of God and His word, speak the Truth in the face of opposition or even great Danger.
Will you compromise your conscience or bend under the Pressure of evil intimidation? The Holy Spirit is your counsellor and your Standby.
