For Such a Time as This

In some ways, this has been a wonderful time where God is encouraging us to reset our lives, adjusting our priorities, time and values. In other ways, this has been a very challenging time. One of the most precious things I love about God is He is always there to encourage and lift us up. He’s there to give us the right perspective for any situation we find ourselves in. I came across this “word” from an email I received. May it be an encouragement to you wherever you find yourself. It’s from: Faith it Daily, written by Brie Gowen.


“And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” Esther 4:14

I made you for such a time as this.

When you thought you couldn’t, or even when you wouldn’t, I was there. I was there in every haggard breath, in every racing thought, even in the irrational fear. My voice called out in clarity and truth, and at those times when you couldn’t hear me, I was there. Waiting. Waiting for you to acknowledge me.

I made you for such a time as this.

When you feel overwhelmed, I am in the midst of struggle. When you chase for the finish line I am in the moment of triumph. Even when you fall flat, I am there in the trenches. All you have to do is see me.

You were made for such a time as this.

For even when you fail, I can use it. And even when you fall short, I can pick up the slack. Each moment, each challenge, every triumph, every failure. These are simply moments for me to make myself more known by you.

You were made for such a time as this.

You are never alone. You are not forsaken. I have been with you from conception and will be with you throughout eternity. So when you feel overwhelmed just know that I am there and together we can.

Because I made you for such a time as this.

God, thank you for making me for such a time as this and never ever leaving me alone. In Jesus’ name, amen.


Have a great week! Mark
