"A Crown With Purpose" | Walk In Wisdom

SCRIPTURE: Esther 5:1-14 

SHOW NOTES: Queen Esther has appealed to her uncle, Mordecai. “Gather all the Jews in Susa and fast with me for three days and three nights. Then, I will go to the king, and if I perish, I perish.” 

What happened during those three days of fasting? Remember there was great fear – weeping, mourning, and lamenting when the Jews learned of the king’s decree. While prayer is not specifically mentioned, when people fast, they typically turn their focus and time toward God. These are Jewish people and they have heard the history of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Remember the mighty deeds of the Lord. He rescued His people from Egypt and brought them into the Land of Promise. For three days, Queen Esther prepared herself and we believe she was seeking wisdom, guidance, and direction. How would she address the king? Esther’s example is set before us – to prepare her mind and her heart. Stand with strength and dignity. Then, walk in wisdom as she prepared to make her request known to the king.
