The life of Esther the queen is the model of kingdom star, and her story is an encouragement for us that no matter what we are going through, God can still make the best out of us. Although God’s name was not mentioned anywhere in the book of Esther, His operations among men and the demonstration of His sovereign power was not hidden.
The events in the book of Esther tell us that there is an awesome God behind the events of life. He is the controller of history and events on the earth amongst men. He will control events for you and ensure that the outcome favours you. One of the greatest revelations of God that you will find in the Bible is that He is the God of positive endings. The Bible reveals Him as the beginning and the end and He determines the outcome.
There is no outcome that startles God and if you will cooperate with God’s programme for your life, the outcome of the events of your life will always be glorious. God is able to put it all together by combining your mistakes, the wickedness of men and the assaults of the devil and still obtain His intended plan for your life.
Another reason God allowed His identity to be hidden in the book of Esther is to allow the enemies of God’s people assume they are weak and without support and can be exploited. God deliberately set it that way so that the enemies of His people can fall into His trap.
PRAYER: Lord, I thank you because you are working all things together for my good and the enemy will not exact upon me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
