“Now the king was attracted to Esther more than to any of the other women, and she won his favor and approval more than any of the other virgins. So he set a royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.” Esther 2:17.
Esther was a Jewish orphan, adopted and groomed by Mordecai for her royal office as Queen of Persia. By God’s providence, as in the case of King David, God anointed and appointed her to become His servant-queen to serve His Kingdom purpose. Esther grew in wisdom, favor with God, and won the heart of the King.
Once inside the palace grounds, God sent her another ‘helper’ – a Persian Eunuch who also ‘loved’ Esther. He became committed to her care and protection and coached her on how to outshine her rivals. The King met Esther and he ‘loved’ her. God’s grace and anointing on your life will make you attract sponsors, helpers, teachers, and encouragers.
Soon after Esther became the Queen of Persia, a crisis came for the Jews. Her position and prominence as Queen gave her the power, ability, and influence to become the savior of her people. God will glorify you to glory Him for your sake, for His sake, and for the people sake.
God will glorify me for His sake and for the sake of my destiny as His eternal servant.
