    Esther is a great book about a great queen.
  • Uloma
    Queen Esther obtained favor from God because she was dedicated and obedient to God. Queen Esther obeyed God's laws and commands like being submissive,respectful, loving, and obedient to her husband the King according to the word of God unlike Queen Vashti that was why the King was always ready to make Esther happy by doing whatsoever she desired. Because of the Jews devotion to God there was love, oneness, peace among Esther, Modecai and their pple the jews that was why God was with them and gave them victory over their enemies. Lesson to learn we should be devoted to God, and always do what glorifies God and what is right before God then God will in return surround us with favor, give us victory, lift us up higher and higher like Esther and Modecai.
