KAREN H JOBES
This biblical narrative tells today’s Christians about God without actually mentioning him.
Esther’s story is without doubt both an inspiration and one of the great teaching resources of the church. But what is the key to unlocking the great lessons of Esther? It is this: Read correctly, the lead character of the book of Esther is not even Esther. The lead character is God. The story of Esther is perfect inspiration for us when we find ourselves in situations we never sought, never planned for, and don’t think we have the gifts to succeed in handling. It tells us what to do–trust these situations to the Lord and move on.
