God's Plan for Your Life is Bigger than Yours

Surely you have some idea of a plan for your life.  You believe education , public safety, politics, medicine, law, business, governmental services, engineering, clergy, missions, etc. is your life work.

In your life work, realize that God's plan for your life is usually bigger than your plan for your life.

Esther became Queen in Persia and was living as a queen.  When Haman plotted to annihilate the Jews, Esther had to come to grips with God's plan being much bigger than hers.

Listen to a dialogue between Esther's cousin Mordecai and Esther, in the book of Esther 4:14-16:
14 If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?"
15 Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai:
16 "Go and gather together all the Jews of Susa and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will do the same. And then, though it is against the law, I will go in to see the king. If I must die, I must die."

As the Queen in Persia, God's plan for Esther was to serve as a royal advocate for the Jews and not just live the life of royalty.

When Esther realized God's plan for her life, she was quick and comfortable entrusting her fate to God.  "If I perish, I perish" (v. 16).

Christians, be quick and comfortable to walk by faith in God's plan for you, and be quick and comfortable entrusting your fate to God.  Why?

1) God's plan for your life is bigger than yours.
2) You will find maximum fulfillment wrapped up in God's plan for your life.

God Bless,
