Jacob had ruined his life. He had lied to and cheated his family, and now he was about to pay! When his brother threatened to kill him, Jacob fled for his life, and while running away from his sin, he ran straight into God! Surprisingly, God met Jacob in love, and it changed his life. Sometimes we also try to run from the consequences of our sin, but we must remember that God’s love is greater than our sin! He longs to restore us to Himself if we will just surrender.
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.
