I do enjoy the thought that God has placed us at a specific place at a specific time for some specific task. Some people believe life is very random and others think God has a real plan laid out for each person. I am one who sees God as very involved in the daily events of our lives and continues to orchestrate events that force us to usher in or reject the kingdom. I love Mordecai’s advice for Esther. He tells her that if she doesn’t help, God will have someone else do it. In other words, she will miss out on ushering in the Kingdom. Mordecai seems convinced that Ester was put in this place at this time for just this purpose. How about you?
