For Such A Time as This: The Divine Conspiracy
"A realization that there is in fact an enemy forces a reassessment of priorities. The moment Haman surfaced, Esther began to move from being a beauty queen to becoming a Jewish Saint."
- Eugene Peterson
Sermon Thought For Reflection
Though the name of God is not mentioned in the book of Esther, the presence of God is detected as if God is conspiring how own plan behind the scenes. In Esther 4:4 Mordecai asserts that deliverance for the Jews will come from "another place" if not from Esther. Whether she acts or does not act, she will not keep God's plan from happening, The question is - will she choose to do the right thing?
Think of circumstances in which God has placed you to do his will. What did/will you do? Ask God for the courage to do the right thing.
