Scripture: Esther 3:2-6, 4:1-2, 15-17

“Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer…be thou faithful unto death and I will give thee a crown of life.” Revelation 2:10 (KJV)

Feedback: Share what it feels like sharing your salvation story with others.
Mordecai refused to bow before Haman, a prince of Persia, and this brought trouble upon the Jews living in the Persian nation. In anger, the prince vowed to wipe out the Jews (Esth. 3:2-6).

Mordecai, like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, did not sway in the face of death threats against what he believed or stood for. Mordecai acted with such an assurance that help would come from elsewhere if Esther decided to fail him. He put his trust in the true and living God who can save no matter how difficult or hopeless the situation may seem. With utmost faith, he led the entire Jewish nation to fast, pray and wait on God to deliver them from the hands of their enemies and God showed up strongly on their behalf.

What is your reaction when you are troubled, mocked and belittled for your beliefs, values and convictions? Do you give up in fear? You shortchange yourself and dishonor God when you do so. You need to stay the course and finish the race. The cost of your faithfulness may be steep but your reward is far greater. 

Reflection: In what areas have I done all to stand and still standing?

Lord, help me to stay the course and finish my race  faithfully in Jesus name.

I remain faithful in the midst of great trials.

This Week Walk of Faith:
Witness where (or to whom) you have never witness before this week.
