Scripture

Esther  5: 1-3

On the third day of her fast Esther put on her royal robes and went and stood in the inner courtyard of the palace, facing the throne room. The king was inside, seated on the royal throne, facing the entrance. When the king saw Queen Esther standing outside, she won his favor, and he held out to her the gold scepter. She then came up and touched the tip of it. ” What is it, Queen Esther?” the king asked. ” Tell me what you want, and you shall have it- even if it is half my empire.”

Psalm 34: 7

His angel guards those who have reverence for the LORD and rescues them from danger.

Observation

Esther was lucky to receive the King’s favor and in the process manage to get her request fulfilled. She has great faith in GOD and knows that he will be able to save her from  imminent danger that was caused by the proclamation.

Application

By showing respect for the higher authority you will be protected in your time of need. GOD will give us protection when we need it.

Prayer

Dear GOD,

Make my fire for you burning bright and keep me under your protective wings.

AMEN.
