IF I PERISH, I PERISH

Esther 4:16

"Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Sushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the King, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.

KJV

In Sushan, it was not customary or according to law for anyone to approach the king's inner chambers uninvited. The consequence of such violation could be death (see Est 4:1-17). Before Esther could approach the king's inner chambers, she made one decision, and it was "If I perish, I perish”.

There is a point in the life of every Christian where he has to make a crucial decision to sustain the tempo of his spiritual growth. When he reaches that point, self-love must die.

Folks, as we serve God faithfully, when the time for us to take a bold step with God comes, let us not confer to flesh and blood. He who will save his life will lose it (Matt 16:25).

The irony of things is that the said life you think you will lose, when you take a step with God, you will gain it, even though the flesh will resist this. Therefore walk in the Spirit, resist the devil and you will have your testimony. Check out the lives of Joseph, Shedrach, Meshach, Abadnego, Daniel, Abraham and Moses. These patriarchs of faith trusted God and today they are remembered for their great faith and great testimonies.

Go into today with every determination to render a service unto God devoid of self-love. Prayer: Tell God to take you to the place of your destiny, and give you grace to please Him in all regards.
