Took Up a Position

I can’t imagine how scared she must have been. She had no food or water for 3 days and 3 nights.

Her life was on the line. All her relatives would die if she did nothing. Just being in that room uninvited was a death sentence.

Yet, Esther bravely walked in. She did not march boldly to the king and demand attention. She did not cower in a corner. She chose a place where the king could see her. Then she patiently waited – holding her position.

Esther 5:1, “Three days later Esther dressed in her royal robes and took up a position in the inner court of the palace in front of the king’s throne room.” The Message

There is injustice I may not be able to change but I can take up a position.

People come and go. I can’t stop them from coming or keep them from leaving. I can stay in my position.

God has “positioned” each of us. Many are in more dangerous positions than I. My job is to know my position. I do not need to demand attention or cower in a corner. I’m to stand and wait until my King calls for me.
