Your situation may be difficult. It may be tough. You may deserve to be treated a certain way. Oftentimes, we miss the opportunities that God presents to us to show his glory and show his power because for many of us, that sense of entitlement, that sense of demanding my own way, gets in the way. We feel like we've got to fight for our rights. We feel like we've got to fight for what we deserve.
And yet what the book of Esther teaches us over and over again, is that you and I, don't have to fight for ourselves. We don't have to demand our own way. We don't have to force people to know who we are and what we're all about. The book of Esther teaches us that we serve a God who is big enough that even when the world is against us, even when circumstances are overwhelming, He is fighting for us.
