We cringe when we hear about the heir who inherited a fortune and squandered it all, or the person who was entrusted to carry on a famous legacy, only to soil the family name in disgrace. Sometimes people can literally be surrounded by things that others only dream of, yet fail to do anything worthwhile with them. Today we see a young man who grew up in the presence of God’s covenant promises, but he chose to mock it and walk away from it all.
Trusting the Unseen Plan of God
God is never mentioned in the Book of Esther. He seems invisible and silent. Yet we discover that God is actually at work behind the scenes through it all, quietly bringing about His will. So always remember, just because God is silent, it does not mean He is absent! In those seasons of life when God seems strangely quiet, He is still there, still at work.
