Esther was orphaned and adopted by her cousin Mordecai and eventually – through the grace of God – became Queen, a Queen of the greatest empire on Earth at that time. That does not come by accident. She was chosen by God to help her people, and her opposition was great. She knew she could lose her own life but her purpose was greater than her fear of death.
“Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!” Esther 4:16
Because of Queen Esther, the Jewish people were not exterminated. God showed Esther FAVOR through King Ahasuerus and God used the Queen to fulfill the lineage of Jesus Christ. The history of Esther is one of grace and favor, but it does not go without saying that she had a heart for God and a heart for her people.
There are no orphans of God, we are all accounted for. Jesus said, “But even the hairs of your head are all numbered,” Luke 12:7.
In Prolife Ministry I am Esther – you are Esther. We seek to free the children of Israel – all unborn children – though prayer, supplication and legislation.
“For how can I endure to see the evil that will come to my people? Or how can I endure to see the destruction of my countrymen?” Esther 8:6
We are still trying to save the children of Israel, just like Esther, one unborn child at a time. And just like Haman in the Book of Esther sought to exterminate the Jews, today through the sin of abortion Haman still seeks our children, and is succeeding.
Queen Esther was victorious saving the children of Israel but we are still fighting the fight of abortion trying to save our unborn children today. Women have usurped the authority of God to take command of their bodies:
“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1Corinthians 6:19-20
We are not our own, our bodies are not our own. We are God’s…and so is every unborn child, without exception.
Be Esther and save our children…for such a time as this.
