The central truth for this session is God has a divine purpose for your life. Read this blog post by Ron Edmondson on 4 principles he learned from the Book of Esther. Then think about and answer the following questions personally or you can try to incorporate these into you weekly session if you’d like.
- Are you trying to figure out where God wants you to be right now? Step back and look at where He already has you. Pray and ask God how He wants to use you right now where you already are.
- What risks do you need to make this week in order to follow God’s plan for your life?
- Read Esther 4:14. This is a good reminder that God is sovereign and His plan will ultimately succeed. Will you have the courage to move forward and follow Him today?
- When Esther followed God, great rewards followed. Examine your heart and life to see if you are following God completely. What areas of your life do you need to relinquish control of? List some areas where you need to trust God and walk by faith.
Esther was courageous in following God’s plan for her life. Think about God’s purpose for your life and how you can choose to follow Him completely in even the decisions in your life that may seem insignificant.
