Such A Time As This

The Hand of Providence


Who among us knows if we have come into the world for such a time as this. As Christians living on this earth we must realize that we are God’s people to carry out His will. We are living in a world today that brings many troubles and woes. Such a time as this we must be ready to do the Lord’s will if we are called on to do so. We may say that we are unable to be of serve for many reasons. This is because of the lack of faith. Let us look at some true life Bible Stories that show God’s people doing God’s will when they were called on to do so. Just as we are today, they lived in very difficult times during their day.

In The Book of Esther we read of a young Jewess girl who was called on to save her people. She went from a person that had no mother or father and was living with her uncle, to being the Queen of Persia. One who had great influence over the king. The Book of Esther clearly shows the hand of providence, which would not allow the Jewish people to be destroyed. Who knows whether you come into the kingdom for such a time as this. (Esther 4:14) NKJV

In The Book of Genesis we read about a young man who’s name was Joseph who went from being the younger son of Jacob, to being disowned by his brothers, to becoming a slave and then imprisoned in Egypt, to becoming the second highest official in the land. In this position he saved his family from the famine in the land. Once again we can see the hand of providence as God takes care of his People. His divine guidance is always there for His people. God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity for you in the earth, and to save your life by a great deliverance ( Genesis 45:7 ) NKJV

Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty. They are higher than Heaven – what can you do? (Job 11:7-8) NKJV
