Seeing Ahead

By Greg Laurie

“Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”

—Esther 4:14

A. B. Simpson said, “God is preparing His heroes, and when the opportunity comes, He can fit them into their places in a moment, and the world will wonder where they came from.”

Did it ever occur to you that you could be one of God’s heroes and that He’s equipping and preparing you for something yet ahead?

We’re always trying to get out of the situation we’re in or the circumstances we’re in or a relationship we’re in. There might be a place for that. But there is also the recognition that God is in control of our lives.

The word providence means “to see ahead of time.” God sees what’s coming. He sees it in detail. God knows exactly what is in the future, and in the book of Esther, we see that He was getting Esther ready for what was ahead. As we look at her extraordinary life, we see her putting it all on the line when push came to shove. The book of Esther is about how God placed the right woman in the right place at the right time. And she saved the Jewish people.

God has put you on this earth for a purpose too. He has put all of us where we are for such a time as this. There are strategic opportunities in life that will drop into your lap, but it’s up to you what you do with them.

You can find God’s purpose for you and dedicate your life to the glory of God, or you can ignore it and chase after the empty promises of this world. It’s really your choice.

As believers, we all have talents and gifts that are given to us by God. We must discover them, cultivate them, and use them for His glory.

  1. ““God is preparing His heroes, and when the opportunity comes, He can fit them into their places in a moment, and the world will wonder where they came from.”” Good quote from Simpson. Love it!

    The short answer to you question is yes. What I can say is that few are ready for the brutal preparing process that will equip them for the battle ahead. This is sad for few will be ready. Those of us that have endured the process say, “Come. He is worth every sacrifice and loss we experience. He alone is our salvation”

    I pray that many would begin to listen to Him in earnest obedience to His will that they may be prepared for what is coming.
