Esther 4:1, 5-16; Esther 7:1-6; Esther 8:15-17; Ezekiel 22:30
Esther almost lost her head. Why? She also almost lost the head of her people. Why? What was she afraid of? What was the second chance after her unwillingness to be counted by God as a heroine of her people? What sort of character does Esther exhibit? Why did God put her on the throne? What does that tell you about God? Sometimes stepping out for God is risky. What are your fears in giving yourself wholeheartedly to God’s work for your life? Can you trust God as she did?
