Royal Privileges

Verse: Esther 4

Additional Scripture Readings:

Proverbs 18:10

1 Peter 5:7

When you’re in a bad spot, there’s nothing like calling for help from the king. Especially when you’re related. When we trust Jesus Christ as our personal Savior, we’re adopted into his royal family. We can call on the protection of the King’s power.

The Bible spells out the royal privilege of the King’s protection all through its pages. Joseph was promoted to a high place in Pharaoh’s courts. The Israelites were miraculously delivered from slavery in Egypt. Daniel saw God close the mouths of lions. Esther persuaded the ruler of her day and saved her people.

While we’re never promised that we’ll be untouched by the evil of our world, we are given the security that God will stand with us through it. God sits by our hospital bed and suffers as we suffer. He stands by us in our doubts without rejecting us. Even in the moments we don’t feel the protection of the King, it is there for us. No matter what circumstances we face, it’s good to know we’re related to the King.
