So, if you were to take a risk quiz how would you score? I think Esther would have scored low. You can read her story in the OT book by the same name. When presented with the opportunity to do something truly great, Esther almost backed out because of the risk involved. But in the end, Esther made good and her name has gone down in history as one of the truly great women of the Bible.
What great opportunity has God placed before you? Don’t be like the man with one talent who failed, not for lack of opportunity or ability, but for lack of courage. He said to his master in Matthew 25:25, “I was afraid and went out and hid your talent in the ground.”
In the words of the Dodge commercial, “grab life by the horns!” Boldly walk through the open door God has placed before you (Rev. 3:8), and place your trust in the Lord who, “always causes us to triumph in Christ” (2 Cor. 2:14).
