Queen Esther was resolved. Mordecai had reminded her if she did not use her influence to save her people, she would likely die along with her people. After fasting she planned to make a personal appeal to the king, which could also have resulted in her own death. She took the risk for herself and her people. She approached the King with respect….and waited for his response.

Ever feel like Esther? Any way you turn seems to have a likely bad outcome?

We have learned by Esther that doing the right thing is the answer.

If we do the right thing(s), we can choose to “obey God and leave all the consequences to him.”
