“And the king loved Esther above all the women, and she obtained grace and favour in his sight more than all the virgins, so that he set the royal crown upon her head, and made her queen instead of Vashti” Esther 2:17
As long as you belong to the kingdom of God, you’ve got to realize that favour is not fair. Yes, it is not fair in the sense that it doesn’t go to the qualified, neither is it a respecter of persons. God will favour who He wills. As a matter of fact, He can take the unqualified and then qualify him afterwards. The bible already makes us know that God is not a respecter of persons and doesn’t look at faces or deeds to bless someone. A typical example of how a qualified person can fall down and a non-qualified person takes his/her place is the story of Vashti and Esther.
Queen Vashti lost her place because her drunken husband sent for her to dehumanize her and degrade her dignity and womanhood. The king sent for her to show her off to other drunken nobles during their partying and feasting. The queen having endured such decided to disobey the order of the king but this cost her. She lost her crown, even though she had a justifiable reason for not going to the king. It was an opportune time for favour to bring out Esther ‘the unqualified’ to seat on her throne.
Favour will not consider whether you are qualified for that job or not, but it will make it possible for you to get it. When God wants to bless you or lift you up, nothing anyone says or does can stop Him. Not even your ‘unqualification’ can deter Him. That is what He will do for you this month. People will look at the blessings of God in your life this month and say “but it is not fair, he/she doesn’t deserve this blessing”. Shout Amen!
Esther 1 and 2
My friend kept inviting me to Praise Tabernacle and I decided to go with her for a service. When daddy was ministering, he walked up to me and prophesied to me that every blessing which the enemy has been stealing from me, I shall recover them all. I received it. I had a health challenge but as daddy prayed for me, instantly I was delivered. God also added jara on top few days later by giving me a job in the Government house which I had been seeking for a while. Praise God!
