Teachable Moments with Brianna Spicka
Director of Loveland Crisis Response Unit
Is this your Esther calling? Part 2: Strength and Courage
Esther’s solution was fortified by waiting on her unseen but ever-present God. Let’s consider what is promised to those who wait on God.
“but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings like eagles;
they shall run and not be weary;
they shall walk and not faint.”
When we have pressing situations in our lives and concerns that are pulling at us. We’ve weighed the options, and there is still no easy solution. Is this our Esther calling? Will we choose to respond like Esther, who resolved to obey and wait on the Lord for strength and through that obedience have courage to do his will? That’s my hope for us all.
