Esther 2:8-17. God is not mentioned in the book of Esther, but he seems to be weaving in his story, nevertheless. Esther and her people were in the lowest social class of this era of the Persian empire, yet she was eventually chosen to be queen. Esther’s access to the king, whom she approaches with the request to save her people, may have been the last part in God’s plan to redeem his people from impending annihilation by Haman. Whether or not we choose to play our part, God is writing his story.
