In the book of Esther, of the Bible, we are told of a wonderful story of a young Jewish girl who became Queen, a true rags to riches story, but not only because of her beauty was she chosen, she was chosen by God to save the entire nation of the Jewish people, who were under threat of annihilation. God positioned her strategically in a place of influence, and with prayer, fasting, and bravery, she accomplished favor in the sight of the King. She answered when God called and went through a season of preparation, physically and spiritually to accomplish His purpose.
Queen Esther was originally an orphaned Jewish virgin girl, raised by her uncle Mordecai, who was given to the King Xerxes, the King of Persia, to hopefully be wed among other vying young virgin girls. Esther was physically beautiful, yet humble, and listened to her Uncle's instructions, and this led her to wed the King and free her people from annihilation, from the wicked minister, Haman, who took advantage of the King’s compliance, to pursue a personal vendetta against the Jews by having a royal decree issued ordering their destruction.
Before approaching the King with her request to save her people, Queen Esther prayed and fasted three days, no food or water, with her servants, and her people. Together they sought God for His council and divine favor, petitioning Him for help with the King's decision, for His people. When ready to approach the King with her request, she addressed him in her Royal Robes, this reminded him, and others, who she was, what her position was, and the influence she had in the Kingdom.
Even in all her jeweled gowns and crown, she still addressed the King in humility and reverence, this gave her favor in the sight of the King. When Queen Vashti, fell into disfavor with her husband the King, because she was disrespectful, rebellious and disobedience - she lost favor! But Queen Esther didn't. She knew humility was a key to getting his attention, and it worked!
Being in a position of influence means responsibility, not only for yourself, but for others - such as God's family. Like Queen Esther, God positions us in a place of influence for His purpose and plan to be fulfilled! This results in being saved from destruction, and spiritual and physical death, highly favored among influencer's, and blessed because of it!
