In the Bible, Esther obeyed the wise instructions of her cousin, Mordecai, and saved her people from mass destruction.
15 Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: 16 “Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day.
I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish”
17 So Mordecai went away and carried out all of Esther’s instructions (Esther 4:15-17).
As a result, Esther found favor with the King and received life and blessings for her people!
Going to the King without being summoned could have resulted in death for Esther, but she and her people fasted and prayed.
Therefore, the King exclaimed, "What is it, Queen Esther? What is your request? Even up to half the kingdom, it will be given you" (Esther 5:3).
Another person who believed and obeyed God was Noah. Noah listened when God informed him about the flood, built the ark, and was protected with 7 other members of his family.
Noah did everything just as God commanded him (Genesis 6:22).
Then in Genesis 7:1, the Lord said to Noah, “Go into the ark, you and your whole family, because I have found you righteous in this generation."
Abraham was another obedient man of God.
In Genesis 12:1-3, the LORD told Abram to go from his country, his people and his father's household to the land God would show him.
God said to Abraham (Abram at the time), "I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse; and all peoples on earth will be blessed through you."
After hearing what the Lord said to him, Abraham obeyed.
Genesis 12:4 reads, "So Abram went, as the LORD had told him; and Lot went with him. Abram was seventy-five years old when he set out from Harran."
Later in Genesis 15:6, we learned that obedience to God is linked to righteousness.
"Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness."
