Begin looking for the Lord’s help in times of difficulties. God will work out his design for you—sometimes with a gentle whisper and other times with a jarring disruption. No matter what happens, don’t forget that he is present and always moving and directing. Never imagine yourself to be insignificant in his eyes. You are so highly esteemed that almighty God has designed a unique calling just for you.

In times of struggles, remember that you are never alone. Throughout the Bible, we find the mighty hands of God working in the lives of his people. God’s purposes are being worked out just the way he has planned, but from our earthly perspective, things sometimes seem confusing and unclear.

The story of Esther in the Bible is a reminder that even when God seems absent, he does not abandon his people and that God’s timing is always perfect. The story reminds us to pray and wait for God to work in our lives because he lives and stays faithful to his promises even when we are living in the midst of uncertain times.

When we experience great disappointments our dependence on God should be paramount. Esther knew that the first thing to do was to go to God and that only God could help her face and win life’s biggest battles. All of us live in an imperfect world and we need to rely on God’s support. Esther was placed in a royal position, not by chance, but for a purpose. God has a plan for each of us, and he has placed us where we are today for a reason.

Perhaps we spend too much time trying to figure out where God wants us to be or wishing we were somewhere else. Instead of focusing so much on the future, we should be content with where we are and allow God to do something with our lives right now

In the book of Proverbs there is a verse that reads “in his heart a person plans their course, but the Lord determines their steps.” It is great for us to plan our lives, but we should also be flexible because ultimately, it is God who decides how those plans will unfold. Be patient and trust that God is working in your life even when you don’t understand his ways and Never Give Up! Never Give Up! Never Give Up!
