Pageant Queen with a Purpose, #30

Esther finalized the decree. She took everything that had happened and she finalized it. Read Esther 9:29-32.

So Queen Esther, daughter of Abihail, along with Mordecai the Jew, wrote with full authority to confirm this second letter concerning Purim. And Mordecai sent letters to all the Jews in the 127 provinces of Xerxes’ kingdom—words of goodwill and assurance— to establish these days of Purim at their designated times, as Mordecai the Jew and Queen Esther had decreed for them, and as they had established for themselves and their descendants in regard to their times of fasting and lamentation. Esther’s decree confirmed these regulations about Purim, and it was written down in the records.
Esther 9:29‭-‬32 NIV

Esther had worked through all the difficulties. She carried through and boldly defended herself and her family. She followed God and she made Him her priority. She recognized that God had put her in the place and the position that she needed to be in at just the right time.

God will do the same with you. He has you in exactly the right place at exactly the right time.
