Esther’s Question

September 18, 2010 Donna New

The CastleIn the movie “One Night with the King” Esther is vying with hundreds of other ladies for the opportunity of being pleasing to the King and being offered the place of Queen. Esther has found a friend in the Eunuch who watches over the ladies. The night comes for her and some of the other ladies to come before the king and they are all offered ornate gold necklaces and bracelets and rich, embroidered clothing to wear on their special night. Esther says to Hegal, the Eunuch, “I can pick out what I prefer but how do I pick out what the King will prefer?” Hegal quietly showed her a box with a necklace, very simple, but very beautiful and meaningful to Esther.

This exchange between Esther and Hegal showed me that it’s easy to ask the Lord for what I want and do for Him what I want but that’s not the question. The question is “What does my King prefer?” I want to be pleasing to Him. Sometimes my dreams are His for me sometimes they are not.  Listening closely to His voice and obeying open the door to His will and to His favor.
