Every child of God is actually destined by God to become a kingdom star. But how God produces kingdom stars is different from how the world produces its own stars. Esther, whose name literally means “star” and whom the Lord made a star for Himself (Psalm 80: 17). How she emerged as a star out of obscurity and how she became noticed is a picture of how God wants to take all His children through to the place of their destiny.
The story of the life of Esther revealed so much about the power, the glory and the supremacy of God over human affairs. The book of Esther is the only book in the Bible where the name of God was not mentioned even once. Yet when you look at every event recorded in that book, you can see the fingerprint of God behind the scene, directing, guiding, using situations, circumstances and ordinary events, upturning the wickedness of man and the devil to accomplish His eternal counsels for His own.
The divine doesn’t always have to be spectacular, God is always doing something for you, you only need to pray for the grace to always see what God is doing. Don’t pray for God to single you out in a service because it may mean that you are about to go through a turbulent season and God is giving you a spectacular encounter so you will never doubt His commitment to you.
PRAYER: Lord, I know You are committed to Your purpose for me, I ask for sensitivity to always see what you are doing in my life at every point in time in Jesus’ name. Amen.
