Created for Greatness

 “And the king loved Esther more than all the women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the maidens, so that he set the royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti”. Esther 2:17 AMP

“For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance shall arise for the Jews from elsewhere, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this and for this very occasion?” Esther 4:14 AMP

Have you ever asked these questions: Why am I here? What exactly am I supposed to be doing?

I believe we have all asked these questions at one point in our lives. What is destiny? Destiny entails those things that are inevitable, those things that will happen. Purpose is something one intends to get or do; the object for which one exists. In this wonderful story of deliverance and restitution, Queen Ester finds herself for a moment forgetting about why she was put in this office. Although she was beautiful and obtained the King’s heart, her purpose for being chosen was not just to please the king. It was to bring deliverance for her and her people, the Jews.

Do you realize that God has put something wonderful in you? You are gifted and talented to do something that no one else has the qualification to do. There is greatness, success, and potential waiting to immerge out of you. Like Queen Esther, who did not approach the King until she was fully prepared for him, you will finally be revealed once God has finished working in you. God has been preparing you for one of the greatest moments of your life. Are you ready?

You must understand that only you can know what your destiny and purpose are. Once you discover why you exist, you will begin to move, occupy, and possess that which has been waiting for your arrival. What is your passion? Is it writing, singing, becoming a president of a company, getting your degree? Whatever it is, you cannot allow distractions to come to detour you and get you off course.

I clearly understand why God allowed me to go through all that I experienced. Sometimes while going through difficulties, disappointments, and trials, we tend to lose our focus and vision. What I did discover was something most amazing. There were books in me that I did not know existed. God not only restored my life and made me whole, He anointed me to write.  Just like Esther was prepared for her assignment, God has been doing the same thing for you. As you meditate and reflect, remember you are just like Queen Esther, women of purpose and destiny, regardless of all the pitfalls, stumbles, and disappointments that come your way.
