Esther 4:13-14 says “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’s name is Hadassah which means myrtle tree. Anytime you see the myrtle tree in scripture it meant prosperity and good was going to happen! Esther was a sign that God was about to bring prosperity to the Jews, but it took the planting of a fast and the springing forth of Grace to position her in a moment! It is Grace which is not according to the law that prosperity can come in this next season! Esther was the Persian name given to her, but it was her name Hadassah that she would have to operate in. Are you able to operate in a Grace that is risky? Esther said “…so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.” When you operate under Grace, God will cause enlargement and deliverance to take place! Let Grace position you like it did Esther! Because when this happens, who knows if you have come into the kingdom for such a time as this?
