SUCH A TIME AS THIS (Esther 4:1-14, 8:1-11)

I welcome you to a new month, the month of April. The fourth month of the year and the month of light. May the light of God shine in your life, home, career and family this month in Jesus Name.

Brethren, it is an obvious fact that we are in such a complicated situation globally. Every continent, nation, government, community, family, individual and even church seems to be confused because of the ravaging virus called the coronavirus which is causing a pandemic all over the world. Let the children of God be rest assured that the Lord Himself watches over His own people at such a time like this, so do not panic, the Lord will watch over you in Jesus Name.

The Bible text for this piece was the story of the Jews who were being oppressed by the Persians. It was a period of great difficulty for them. A time of tension and affliction, a moment of confusion and intense challenges but God did not abandon them, rather He raised a deliverer for them.

In such a time as this, God wants to humble the entire humanity and let them know that He is Lord. Psalm 71:19 says “Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee!

Exodus 15:11 also says “Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

In such a time like this, the fools will know that God is alive. Psalm 14:1-2 says “The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good. The Lord looked down from heaven upon the children of men, to see if there were any that did understand, and seek God.

In such a time as this, everyone will be forced to look unto God for help. 

Psalm 121:1-2 tells us, “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.”

Brethren, relax God is in charge and He just wants to prove Himself, and as long as you are on His side there is nothing to fear. No plague or sickness will come near your dwelling place or your household in Jesus Name. This month will end in praise for you and all yours.


  1. Thank God for all He has done for you, thank Him for the gift of life, and the miracles of sleeping and waking up.
  2. Ask God for mercies in time like this, let His manifold grace be available for us.
  3. Father, in such a time like this, please watch over me and my household in Jesus Name.
  4. Father, in such a time like this, please prove Yourself to the whole world that You are the only Saviour.
  5. Father, please provide for my needs miraculously and do not let me lack any good thing in Jesus Name.

Shalom & Greater Glory.
