"Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king's house, more than all the Jews. For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?" Esther 4:10-11
Mordecai was discerning enough to understand the seriousness of the situation that seemed to be leading to the destruction of the Jewish people. His godly influence and wisdom leads Hadassah to risk her life to intercede for the people. He knew that she would not be shielded form the command even as the queen, so she needed to take an active roll in God's plan to bring deliverance to the Jews.
We live in equally distressing times. Many are calling for the destruction of Christianity and Judaism. We need the wisdom of Mordecai to speak to our hearts. God's plan will unfold exactly as He wills it too. The decision is whether we wish to be a part of the Lord's plan, or sit on the sidelines hoping our "privileged" status as believers will shield us. Many need to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Are you making the right decision about your roll in His plan?
