"Yet who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14b)
Queen Esther had a divine purpose to play in protecting the fate of her people, but before she was a queen, Esther was an orphan. She had experienced great traumas in her life and these areas had to be cleansed before she could enter the presence of a king and fulfill her purpose. Esther's purification process began with Myrrh, Aloe, and Cassia. As the oil began to purify her physically, spiritually, and mentally, she began to have an aroma that would release preparation, protection, provision, and promotion in her life. Esther’s life had an aroma of these oils. Psalm 45:8 tells us that the Lord also has an aroma of these oils - “Lord, your robes smell of Myrrh, Aloe, and Cassia.”
You see, Esther as a bride had to be purified in the aroma of a king in order to attract a king. We as the bride of Christ must also be purified in the aroma of a king in order to attract The King. What is your aroma? Just as Esther was born for such a time as this for the kingdom, you have been born for such a time as this for the Kingdom of God. You too can be cleansed from traumatic pasts and have an aroma that attracts a King.
