You can do what you should even when you don't know what will happen.
As we continue our journey through God’s Big Story, we take a closer look at the lives of significant people in the Jewish Scriptures: Joshua and Caleb, David, Daniel, and Esther. Each of them trusted God and found courage to face difficult circumstances. They also represent major time periods in Israel’s history—from entering the land of Canaan, the United Kingdom, and Exile.
Like these people we read about in the Old Testament, God may ask us to take a risk or do something we might not feel prepared to do. But God will also give us the courage we need to face that challenge. We can also look to Jesus. He faced the biggest challenge of all: death on the cross. Still, He chose to be brave and follow God’s plan.

In week four, we discover the story of Esther in the Book of Esther. Esther had no idea how God would use her when she was chosen to become Queen of Persia. But, her cousin Mordecai reminded her that God put her in that role to rescue the Jewish people from Haman’s plot. Esther knew what could happen if the king didn’t approve of her asking for his help . . . but she knew how much more was at stake for God’s people if she didn’t try. She found the courage to go to the king and ultimately saved her people.
Bottom Line: You can do what you should even when you don’t know what will happen. We will all face moments in life when we need to take a risk. Those situations can feel terrifying. We might wish that we could crawl back into bed and hide . . . but more than likely, that won’t be an option. Thankfully, we know that God is with us like God was with Esther. We might not know what will happen, but God does. We can trust God no matter what—to give us the courage we need to face anything in life.
