Two lessons are obvious in the Bible Story of Esther. First, I believe that the name of God was not mentioned in the book of Esther to show us that the strength of God’s people is in the invisible. Our strength as God’s people rests in the invisible reality of God. God has never depended on the strength of numbers to carry out His purpose and plan. He is the Almighty God and He can do what He wants to do with or without any human support. The story of the life of Esther shows us that one with God is the majority.
Second, it was to show us that God is the unchanging Changer behind the changing scenes of life. Things are changing and sometimes, people can’t even predict what is going to happen next (Ecclesiastes 9:12), but God is never caught unawares. The book of Esther reveals the supremacy of God and clearly shows God’s control over all affairs to favour His own.
The Bible says, known unto God are all His works from the foundation of the world. If you know this and you are rest assured that all things are working together for your good, you will rest your heart in the Lord; you will cast all your cares upon Him while He works out His purpose and plan for your life.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you because You are working everything together for my good and I rest in You. I receive the divine outcome of your workings in Jesus’ name. Amen.
