It is easy to see God in the miraculous, in a burning bush, the parting of a vast sea, or the dead coming to life. It is not easy to see God in the mundane, in the ordinary existence of our lives. But He is there! It is worth noting, Shakespeare is never mentioned in any of his plays, but his presence is felt everywhere. Every character, every scene, and every line flows from the author’s pen. The book of Esther is like one of Shakespeare’s plays. God is nowhere mentioned, yet His presence is pervasive. He is directing the course of events to bring about His purposes.
The book of Esther is a study of the providence and power of God, and it serves as a reminder that no matter how bad things get, God is in control, and that no purpose of His can be thwarted. Esther is a case study of what God can do through those who dare to risk it all, for the Glory of God and the good of others.
