Picture a huge chess game with God’s hand strategically placing the pieces on the board. Then realize that God gives life and takes life. He has purposefully placed us on this earth at our appointed time… for a time such as this. He has a specific purpose and calling on our lives that He will use all that has happened to us to help us overcome and help others as we submit our lives to Him. He is just waiting on us to realize that He is the Key to overcoming this “game.” Unfortunately, many have had hardships that are not even imaginable, but I know that as each person overcomes their situations while relying on God, He will raise them up as a testimony for His Glory… just like Esther.
Dear Lord, we thank You for the calling on our lives. We thank You that You turn all things, no matter how devastating and painful, around for good for those who love You and are called according to Your purposes. We praise You and honor You as we walk in obedience to You, trusting You to lead us into our future… in Jesus Name. Amen.
