Confident and Trusting

Esther was content to spend her one night with the King of Persia dressed according to the suggestions of the King's chamberlain. She did not try to embellish her beauty with fancy dress or jewels and jewelry of her choice. She trusted Hegai's advise. Because of this, her natural grace impressed all who saw her and the King chose her to be his queen.

Are we willing to approach our King clothed just as and only as He has provided, in garments of salvation and robes of righteousness? These are gifts from Him, prepared by Him and paid for by Him. They are His very life and righteousness. Or, do we feel it necessary to add to His provision of righteousness with our own good works so He will choose us to be His bride?

We should be as confident and trusting as Esther was. His righteousness and salvation are more than sufficient.

Esther 2:15-17; Isaiah 61:10
