Seasons lead into other seasons. What you do in one builds into the next. Don't forget what you learned from your previous experiences because they will equip you and prepare you for the future. What you learn in the desert helps you appreciate the good things in your paradise but it doesn't stop there. When you find yourself in a dry season again, you can say with full assurance the promise found in Psalm 27:13-14: "I am still confident in this: I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Wait for the Lord, be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord."

Sometimes God will place you in front of someone who likes you and wants to be good to you and you don't have to do a thing. You don't need to become someone else. You don't need to do or wear the latest trend. 
You are a masterpiece, invest in yourself!
Build upon the treasure God placed inside of you. God knew what He was doing when He made you. Don't get mad at Him as if He made a mistake. God makes no error and you are not an anomaly. You are His finest possession. Work with what He graced you with.
Esther met Xerxes four years after he started looking for a replacement. He met countless of girls before Esther. And remember he was seeing the best of the best, each woman was probably more beautiful than the last, then came Esther. History could have influenced Xerxes to just enjoy her now and send her away later because better might be coming up but no! The king was so enthralled with Esther that he stopped looking, not caring about those who came before her and those who might come after her. This is all to say that if God says that something is for you,  it is for you. No man can shut a door that God opens and no man can open a door that God closed for you. (Revelation 3:8)
You don't have to fight, or beg for your blessing because it has your name on it and it will not stop until it finds you, ready and willing to receive it.

You are a role model, regardless if you signed up for the position or not. People watch you even when you think no one sees you and they might mimic you or mock you. Especially as a Christian, people will have their eyes on you, making sure you walk the Christian talk.
So are you displaying God's grace and truth? Don't worry about people's opinions of you, your only concern is God's opinion. So are you working and living as if it's all unto Him? Colossians 3:23-24
Are you keeping in mind His standards as you go through your life? Or does your flesh get in the way?
In the chapter, Queen Vashti's reasoning was never disclosed because in the greater schemes of things, it doesn't matter how you feel. When God calls you, you answer and tell your flesh to shut up.
God always calls you against your flesh which tries to convince you that you're not equipped, worthy or you couldn't be bothered with it. He calls you against what is easy so you can do what is hard in His strength.
