If I Perish, I Perish

Esther 4:15-16, “[15] Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer, [16] Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: 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.”

The book of Esther is such an incredible book! It is the only book in the Bible that does not specifically mention God by name even though it is very evident that His hand was working.

The king had passed a law that on a certain day, people were permitted to kill the Jewish people. Esther was a Jew, so her cousin, Mordecai, said she had to do something. She was the queen. It was basically up to her. God had a plan for Esther. This plan was to save the Jewish people. She had to go before the king and make this right. She stated, “If I perish, I perish.” She was not going to stop trying to save the Jews until she died. She was not going to quit.

What would it take for you to quit doing God’s will for your life? Some people quit because God’s will just isn’t convenient while others quit because they think they know better than God. There are probably those that just don’t see the importance of doing the Lord’s will.

My friend, it is of utmost importance that you do God’s will for your life and do not quit! Esther was prepared to do what she was meant to do even if it meant her death. Let us purpose in our heart today that we will do God’s will for our lives no matter what! Esther did, and she was able to save her people! Will you do God’s will and purpose to never quit so that God can do a work through your life? May this be our desire each and every day!
