Spiritual authority

Esther respected and honored Mordecai’s role in her life when, as a queen living in the palace, she could have taken on a new “royal” identity and ignored her past. But she did not. Esther still looked to Mordecai for counsel, direction and spiritual protection.

“Being in the kingdom at such a time as this” was all part of God’s plan. Esther had the opportunity to save herself, her cousin and her nation. But that was not going to come easy. It would be a “do or die” moment. She needed God’s intervention. Apparently, she knew where and how to get it.

In our walk with God, “do or die” moments could come along. We will be well prepared to make those hard decisions when we are secure in our relationship with Christ as well as those who give us spiritual oversight. A friend often says, “To exercise authority, one must walk under authority.” May God help us.
