One Book: Esther

Esther: For Such a Time As This

Did you ever wonder how aware Esther was of God working behind the scenes in rescuing His people from the threat of a BC holocaust? Maybe she was aware of a few things. Maybe. John Piper once said, “God is always doing 10,000 things in your life, and you may be aware of three of them.” Did you know that God is never explicitly mentioned in the Book of Esther? Isn’t that interesting? Yet, God’s hand of providence is seen on every page. He’s the “unseen Player” in this captivating story of the deliverance of God’s people when destruction looked like a sure thing. 

God directs not only events, but He also directs people in accomplishing His unstoppable plan. Join Pastor Larry McCall in the book of Esther as we look at this amazing story. We can know that our lives have meaning – purpose – BECAUSE God is in control, directing all things toward the accomplishment of His sovereign plan.
