The Triumph of Faith (Part 2)

Continuing drawing lessons from Esther’s saga, another question is how she knew what to do after crossing the known threshold of the King waiving the right to approach. One thing is clear, she was not driven by emotion, blurting out her complaint! What’s not obvious is that she may have sought the face of the Lord on the approach, and in deep intimacy with God, got an answer; and getting an answer is one thing but following instructions requires trust and confidence in God’s words. On this latter bit, we know that this was Esther’s strength from her disposition in the journey to becoming queen.

Esther was the daughter of Abihail, who was Mordecai’s uncle. (Mordecai had adopted his younger cousin Esther.) When it was Esther’s turn to go to the king, she accepted the advice of Hegai, the eunuch in charge of the harem. She asked for nothing except what he suggested, and she was admired by everyone who saw her. Esther 2:15 (NLT)

Who could know how to turn the heart of the king better than his creator?

It’s as easy for God to steer a king’s heart for his purposes as it is for him to direct the course of a stream. Proverbs 21:2 (TPT)

The key here is intimacy with God, total dependence on His counsel and complete obedience to what He directs. This is where the counterpart virtue of the weapons of warfare – a clean conscience comes in.

With this encouragement use your prophecies as weapons as you wage spiritual warfare by faith and with a clean conscience. For there are many who reject these virtues and are now destitute of the true faith. 1 Timothy 1:19 (TPT)

This is the charge to each of us looking for results, the deliverance of this generation of youth; would we be intimate enough with God for direction in our approach to this battle? Are we concerned enough to take these sacrificial steps and rise to the occasion? Selah.
