God’s favour will take you where beauty can’t take you.
Even before Esther entered King Xerxes palace, God’s favour was upon her. Not the favour in her been beautiful, because there were also other beautiful women around her. But favour from the Lord. Favour as a result of purpose. Favour as a result of being in the right place at the right time. Favour in the terms of doing what she was meant to do well. The bible says the kings servant Hegai was very impressed with her. And this was the servant which the king had appointed to be in charge of the harem and given beauty treatments.
Notice that the bible didn’t say that Esther was the most beautiful in the whole land. Because its not her physical beauty that carried her all the way to the Kings palace. God had a purpose for Esther in the palace. And God opened doors for her as a result of her stepping out.
God’s favour opened the eyes of Hegai to see something about her that He couldn’t quite see in the other women. Esther’s beauty was important but only bring her so far. What would lead her into her purpose is God’s favor. What would lead her from the King’s court to been in the throne as the King’s wife was God’s favour and God’s divine purpose.
Esther listened and seeked advice from those that who would help equip her to get her where she needed to get to.
15Esther was the daughter of Abihail, who was Mordecai’s uncle. (Mordecai had adopted his younger cousin Esther.) When it was Esther’s turn to go to the king, she accepted the advice of Hegai, the eunuch in charge of the harem. She asked for nothing except what he suggested, and she was admired by everyone who saw her.
We cannot know or learn everything by ourselves as human beings. God places people in our lives connected to our destiny. Or people that will help us fulfill His plans for our lifes. Some of those people may be people you think talk too much, or advice too much. Some of these people may be within our family or even friends. Some of these people may come across at work or even at school. Their advice seems too good, or almost like they want to make you a goodie goodie.
Taking care of ourselves and looking beautiful as women is important. But the emphasis should be placed on beautifying our soul .This;building our relationship with God . Because beauty will fade away, but its God’s favour that will unlock the doors to walking in your destiny.
Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the LORD will be greatly praised.
Esther still had her mind on her family in when in the King’s palace. She did not ignore her family after she’d made it. This tells us of Esther’s character, that she was someone who would not forget where she came from and neglect those who had raised her and helped get here where she was now.
God’s favour on Esther’s life was not only to benefit Esther. And Esther recognized that. God’s favour has a purpose, he pours it out on you so it can flow through you to help others for His glory.
