In today’s devotional, Ed M. cites Esther 4.14 and ponders human action under divine sovereignty. His prayer caps off the devotional so well.

Almighty God, what I do matters. And what I do not do matters, too. I need to know which is appropriate under what circumstances. Please give me insight to know when and how to do Your will. Through Him, who knows, Amen.

Focus question: Do I find myself thinking that someone else will act if I don’t, or that God will provide in spite of my inaction, and thus excuse myself?

What say you?
