I love the story of Queen Esther. She had a remarkable and inspiring level of faith. For all that she had endured in her young life, she never doubted what God was capable of. She never turned away from God. Esther’s obedience to Him is what gave her courage to do what needed to be done in a frightening situation.
1. When have you needed to be obedient to God in order to get through something frightening?
2. How has obedience to God strengthened your faith?
Challenge: Identify an area in your life that you are avoiding because you are too afraid to face it. Then ask God for 30 seconds of courage to face the challenge.
