Esther 8:1-10:3; 1 Corinthians 12:27-13:13; Psalm 37:1-11; Proverbs 21:23-24

In a world filled with unbridled ambition, can you be a person who will wait for God to elevate you. How about this? When you know there is a plot against you or there are people conspiring to do you harm, can you trust that God will be your defender?

Trusting God is not a process whereby we ask God to bless our plans. Trusting God means that you won’t move until He gives you clear direction. When the Jews were under a death sentence, they did not take up arms and fight, they prayed and fasted. God answered. If they had arisen and fought for themselves, they would have missed the wonderful way that God would vindicate them.

God wants to vindicate you as His child. I know you may want to fight your own battles, but let God show you that He can truly set a table before you in the presence of your enemies (Psalm 23). When God exalts you, no one can bring you down.
