What looks like a lifetime of coincidences is actually the sovereign hand of God.
So many times we miss God’s timing because we think our lives are a result of our own effort. Esther may have thought she won the crown of Persia because she was beautiful, and played her cards right. But perhaps she was brought to the kingdom for such a time as this? Perhaps she was part of something bigger than herself. Perhaps she was part of God’s greater plan to save His people.
It’s only when you realize that your story is not your own–that you are a chosen collaborator with God’s perfect plan–that you can wait on Him with a brave and grateful heart.
