Am I here on the earth at the right time?

When Esther’s words were reported to Mordecai, he sent back this answer: “Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:12-14
            It is no accident that you are here on the earth when you are here.  It’s no accident you live in this country and were born into this family and live in that place.  Everything has reason and meaning.
            Some people may rise to fame or power at the right time.  Ten years later or earlier that may not have happened.  Times change.  But we are all placed precisely at the right time in history.
            Esther the queen realized she was in that position to save her people from extinction.  It may not be that dramatic for you, but it could be.  Maybe you can save just one?
            Always be aware of where you are in history and ask God, “Why am I here at such a time as this?”  He’ll show you.
