From the Pastor's Desk

Mordecai told Esther, "Who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?" (Est. 4:14). This is a rhetorical question. He really meant "This is your time!"

It is embarrassing to admit, but when we were kids, some of us may have struggled to learn to tell time. Spiritually, we all need to learn to know what time it is in our lives. We need to learn God's proper time in our lives as He works out His purpose for us. We cannot control time, but we can learn to tell time. We need to be like the men of the tribe of Issachar, "who understood the times and knew what Israel should do" (1 Chron. 12:32). We will not know what to do if we do not know what time it is spiritually. Jesus told the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, "You can discern the weather. But you cannot discern the signs of the times" (Mt. 16:3). When God speaks to you, opens the door of opportunity, or presents you with a great task, as he did Esther, take a step of faith into your destiny because now is your time!

Scripture tells us to recognize the moments when the set time of favor has come. "You will arise and have mercy on Zion; for the time to favor her, yes, the set time, has come" (Ps. 102:13). "Set time" means an appointment. The alarm is ringing that it's time. We stand on the promise, "For since the world began, no ear has heard and no eye has seen a God like You, Who works for those who wait for him!" (Isa. 64:4).

Most of the time, I just share out of the overflow of what God is speaking to me. But occasionally, there is a need I see in the church or at least in the lives of many people, whom I love. Would you
