From Series: Lessons For Life, Volume 3

Esther 4:4-17  (ID: 3017)

God’s name is never mentioned in the book of Esther, but God’s providence is evident throughout. In this story, we find events that seem to be coincidence aligning to place Esther in a position to intercede on behalf of the Jewish nation. Alistair Begg reminds us that the hand of God is providentially at work in our lives as well, whether we see it or not.


4When Esther's young women and her eunuchs came and told her, the queen was deeply distressed. She sent garments to clothe Mordecai, so that he might take off his sackcloth, but he would not accept them.
