KEY VERSEEsther 10:3 (Author’s report)
Mordecai the Jew became the prime minister, with authority next to that of King Xerxes himself. He was very great among the Jews, who held him in high esteem, because he continued to work for the good of his people and to speak up for the welfare of all their descendants.

I can raise you up or bring you down. I can change your future in the blink of an eye. I can lead you to the highest heights, and I can also protect you from going there. You may think you know what is best for your future, but seek me first. Don’t formulate a plan to win or succeed without seeking my will. Turn to me. Talk to me. Listen to me. Don’t step out in faith and then ask me to bless you. Doing the right thing starts with waiting patiently before me. Let me lead you. Follow my instruction and then ask for my help to give you the courage and tenacity to obey.

The most significant victory or impact you can have in life is to equip others to know me and walk with me. Let me increase your platform to accomplish goals that last for eternity. But your impact may not always be out front. I need faithful people behind the scenes, as well.

Evaluate your motives. Do the right thing because it’s the right thing. Don’t just do it for attention or to acquire a promotion.
