Esther 4:16 NKJV

[16] "Go, gather all the Jews who are present in Shushan, and fast for me; neither eat nor drink for three days, night or day. My maids and I will fast likewise. And so I will go to the king, which is against the law; and if I perish, I perish!"

Esther was told by her uncle to approach the king on behalf of the Jews who were sentenced to death by a wicked employee of the king. Esther hesitated because she would be risking her life to do that. Her Uncle Mordecai warned her that refusing to take that chance would not guarantee her own safety. Esther decided to enter the realm of the unseen and put her own life on the line to save her people. Many times we may be challenged with entering the unseen realm due to fear. However, like Esther, we must realize that there is no guarantee that we will be saved ourselves if we fail to fulfill our calling. We must seek God for His will and be willing to say like Esther, "If I perish, I perish." We must be willing to give our all, including laying down our lives for the cause of Christ.
