Re: Verse reading–Esther 4:4-17; 7:1-6 (day four)
Faith demands action! There is no way to live by faith and be a person who is complacent and uninvolved in what is going on in culture. Mordecai told Esther that if she did not act in faith, God would use someone else to do the job He had prepared her to do. Esther would have a huge price to pay for her inaction though.
Have you ever tried to avoid doing what you knew you should do? Have you said, “Let me pray about it,” when you already knew the answer? Walking and living a life of faith requires us to become involved in God’s work. It is not an option. Our faith is an active faith…no hoping someone else will do it..no pew sitting. It is our responsibility. We must be prayerful and move in God’s direction and power, but the key word is that we must move! Ask God to stir your heart and increase your faith…there is work to be done.
