Esther; The Unseen Sovereignty

Esther; The Unseen Sovereignty

The book of Esther is the remarkable re-telling of the story of a young woman named Esther who is one of many Jews living in Persia. Through extraordinary circumstances, Esther is moved from obscurity to being the Queen of Persia where she has the opportunity to save her people from being destroyed. As she navigates a series of events she is faced with the decision to save her people but in the process risks losing her own life. One of only two books in the Bible that is named after a woman and the only book that does not have a single reference to God, the book of Esther silently displays His incredible sovereignty. God's handiwork is on display in this book as we have the unique perspective of looking back on history and peering into this story of one woman's faith. The Book of Esther is incredibly relevant as it teaches us that God is faithfully working in our lives even when we do not see it.

Act Two: Haman’s Plot January 15, 2017

Just when it seems that life is going our way, we can face problems, be hit by tragedy and wonder where God is in it all. When this happens we can question the care and power of God. We can look at a world that is moving further and further away from godly principles, growing in evil and conclude that God is absent. In Esther chapter three, we look at this reality but rather than it leading us to despair we see that God is still near and that we can hope in Him. More info »
