Daily devotional: God orchestrates events

Scripture
"If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?"
Esther 4:14 NLTSE

Observation
The Lord God Almighty orchestrates events for his divine purposes, as seen throughout the book of Esther and of course throughout the rest of the Bible as well.

Application
Don't undermine series of events that come together like pieces of a puzzle. And pray that the Lord will orchestrate events for His glory and that we will get to be part of what He wants to do on the earth.

Prayer
Lord, I give you praise and honor and glory for who You are. You are awesome, holy, and all powerful. I love you. Thank you so much for not just sitting back and watching all that unfolds on the earth. Thank you that You are before all things, and in You, all things hold together (Colossians 1:17). I know that in all things, You work for the good of those who love You, who have been called according to Your purpose (Romans 8:28). Lord, please put me in the middle of what You are doing. Help me to see your majestic plan unfold, and use me in any way You want. Create in me a pure heart so that nothing stands in the way of our fellowship together. Mold me into the man of God that You desire me to be. Help me to be humble and not exalt myself (Luke 18:14).
