Hello precious Soar Girls, through this post, I want to share with you three things that you can do, and do WELL to attract the favour of God upon your life like no other.
Remember a moment of God’s favour can bring a lifetime of untold blessings upon your life, just like it did for Esther.
Esther was an orphan and was brought up by her uncle Mordecai. As a young maiden, God opened the door for her to get access into King Ahasuerus’ palace. From being lost to being elevated to the king’s palace – isn’t that our journey as well? God, in His mercy cleansed us from our unrighteousness and made us sit in high places with Him.
But Esther didn’t stop here. She further did something that made the king choose her over every other girl to reign with him as queen.
Here are the 3 things she did well:
1/ Honour well
Esther, along with other young girls, was taken into the king’s palace into the care of Hegai, the custodian of the women.
But the Bible says, Esther pleased Hegai!
Now the young woman pleased him, and she obtained his favor; so he readily gave beauty preparations to her, besides her allowance (Esther 2:9).
I believe the way Esther pleased Hegai was through her honour of him. And, your honour for a person is evident when you listen to that person!
Honour God, by obeying His Word. Honour Him by your gratitude. Honour the Holy Spirit with your surrender, and you will see how God’s favour will be drawn towards you.
2/ Prepare well
Each young woman’s turn came to meet the king after 12 months of preparation, six months with the oil of myrrh and six months with perfumes and preparations for beautifying women (Esther 2:12).
Thus prepared, each young woman went to the king (Esther 2:13).
How prepared are we when we enter the presence of God? Do we come expecting? Do we smell of faith? How do we come before Him during our corporate time of worship as a church? Do we reach early in the house of God? Are we dressed with a garment of praise? Do we come with a testimony?
Never take your King for granted. Your preparation is the key to your elevation!
3/ Give well
Every young woman who went to meet the king was given whatever she desires to take with her from the women’s quarters to the king’s palace (Esther 2:13)
When it was Esther’s turn to be taken into the royal palace, she took nothing but what the King liked, as advised by Hegai.
Esther gave the king what he liked and not what she liked.
Her giving pleased the king!
Don’t go empty handed before God. Don’t give Him out of a religious ritual, but may your giving to God be out of revelation. Give Him sacrificially. Give Him with joy! And He is able to make all grace abound to you, so that you may not lack anything (2 Corinthians 9:8).
Go ahead, try your King!
