I believe God has positioned us, for “such a time as this”. In Esther chapter 4, Esther called for a fast, heard from God and stepped out on His Word despite the potential consequences. Look at what God did because of obedience: He delivered His people, handled their enemies and blessed their families.
One of the most basic yet important principles a Christian can ever learn is that of obedience. The more familiar we become with God’s Word, the more we will begin to understand obedience. God’s laws are not designed to deprive us of pleasure or prosperity; rather, they are intended to protect us from hurting ourselves and others, and to guide us toward the fulfillment in life that He wants us to enjoy. Inspite of the perceived consequences, obedience always works.
The laws of Scripture are profound yet simple: the Bible teaches that we will reap what we sow, more than we sow and later than we sow. When we obey God, we will always get His best; when we don’t, life will turn out to be much harder.
