If you want evidence that God has a sense of irony look no further than the book of Esther. On Truth For Life, Alistair Begg details God’s complete reversal of a villain’s sinister plot as the story of Esther continues.

The Unseen God, Volume 2

Though God is never mentioned in the book of Esther, this series by Alistair Begg helps us discover that while unseen, God is sovereignly directing the intricate events of this historic drama. The unlikely selection of a young Jewish girl to become Queen of Persia and gain influence with a powerful king is one of many improbable turns in a story that now, over 2,000 years later, is still memorialized by the Jewish people.

In Volume 2 of The Unseen God, we see His hand of Providence at work as Esther and Mordecai use wisdom and truth to deliver the Jews from danger. As they trust Him in an impossible situation, He uses their obedience to bring about His will.

The book of Esther teaches us that God is at work in the details. He directs the actions of every person for His greater purpose. This study challenges us to trust in God’s guiding hand over the smallest of details in our everyday lives and to rest safely in His Providence. For the Unseen God, no circumstance is too insignificant to go unnoticed and no situation is beyond His sovereign power.
