Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish. Esther 4:16
The book of Esther never mentions the name of God yet God orchestrates saving the Jewish people through Queen Esther. Mordecai is Esther’s cousin. Her story is a story of redemption and salvation of the Jewish people. Dr. David Jeremiah states the book of Esther is read every year at Jewish celebrations called Purim.
God orders our steps but each of us has a choice to do what God has asked us to do. When Esther became queen there was a year of preparation before she became queen. God is with us even when things do not make sense. God loves you, my friend.
This season will you trust that you are where God wants you? Will you trust that just as God saved Esther and her people from the evil plot of Haman that God is trustworthy? His mercy is with us this Christmas season. Blessings. Diana
