“…and if I perish, I perish.”

I just can’t say this enough, I love the story of queen Esther. Esther was chosen by God to save the Israelites from an ethnic cleansing in 437 B.C. She was a brave woman. There was nothing that was going to stop her from standing against the edict of the king — not even the possibility of her losing her life. She entered in with that attitude of “…and if I perish, I perish” — completely confident and trusting that God was going before her.

As women in today’s society, it can be intimidating to step into the world and do what God created us to do. Being a woman is not the easiest. The thought of knowing that there are others that are more experienced than we are or perhaps can do things better than us can be frightening and needs to change. You see, Esther did not come from a royal family nor was she “equipped” to have the title of a queen. But when God has chosen you for a specific task, no living being on the face of this earth can stand against that. I can’t imagine how intimidating that role would have been for her. However, one thing I do know for sure is that she quickly understood that when God has a purpose for your life, He will give you all that you need in order to fulfill that purpose.

Therefore, just as God was with Esther every step of the way, so will He also be with you and fully equip you to do what He has appointing you to do. Be strong and courageous; you were made for such a time as this!
