“Go, assemble all the Jews to be found in Shushan, and have them fast for me, neither eating nor drinking for three days, night and day; also, I and the girls attending me will fast the same way. Then I will go in to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish.” Then Mordechai went his way and did everything Esther had ordered him to do.” - Esther 4:16-17
“Adonai is your guardian; at your right-hand Adonai provides you with shade — the sun can’t strike you during the day or even the moon at night. Adonai will guard you against all harm; he will guard your life. Adonai will guard your coming and going from now on and forever.” - Psalm 121:5-8
With the Feast of Purim upon us, I think of Esther and the courage this woman had to go into the throne room of the King, knowing that if anyone knew she was Jewish, she could die! Esther fasted and prayed for three days for His protection over her, and He provided it. She put her complete trust in Him.
We go through many trials, some more than others, but in those trials, Adonai is there guiding us through. We may not see Him in the moment, but when we look back, we see where He was in all of it. By fasting and praying when going through trials, we can focus on Him who gets us through. Just like with Esther, Adonai has specific tasks that He chooses us to do. He will protect us and see us through till that task is complete.
Be a Blessing and Be Blessed!
