Daily Delight

When I look up at the night sky, I’m not captivated by the darkness, but rather, the shining, twinkling stars that stand out against their black backdrop. Not many people know that there’s a whole book of the bible called “Star.” You’ll find it between Nehemiah & Job - yep, the original meaning of Esther is STAR. She shone like a bright light against the darkness of her day and foreign culture. When faced with the death sentence upon her people, she was lovingly challenged by her cousin (Esther 4:14). Who knows? Maybe you were made Queen for just such a time as this.

Perhaps your royal position, he reasoned, is about more than just you. Perhaps your calling is even grander than you think. Girls, we too have been given rule and reign alongside the King of Kings. We’ve been positioned to impact the nations, and pave the way for their salvation. It’s simply not just about us - it’s time to reach up, adjust our tiaras, and rise up into our Esther calling! Just as Esther received favour and grace from her King, we too, have an anointing to impact the world. Philippians 2:16b …you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life. Hold out the word of Life to those around you - you carry a message from King Jesus that will save lives. Shine bright, Lovely Ones.
