God’s wisdom is subtle but sure in the saving of His people – Esther 5:1-14.
In Esther 3:1-15 we see Mordecai making a stand that will seemingly get him and all of his people exterminated! But God is at work, using what is seemingly a small stand by one man to set a huge trap for the His enemies and the enemies of His people. This chapter ends with the future of the Jews looking pretty bleak. How do we respond when our circumstances make it look like evil is winning? Listen in as we look beyond our present circumstances to God and His promises.
Chapter 2: In God’s providence, the beautiful queen is crowned and the beast king is saved from assassination. We also discuss the fact that true and lasting beauty is what God has worked for us and what He works in us in Jesus! Read Esther 2:1-23 and listen in.
In chapter 1 we see Queen Vashti removed, preparing the way for Esther to take her place. We also discuss marriage and how King Ahasuerus serves as a contrast to King Jesus who lovingly sacrifices Himself for His bride.
