    God always has a plan and a way of escape for His people.This happened in order for Esther to come in .At the same time it's still a lesson in ch. 1 WIVES HONOR YOUR HUSBANDS..God is a God of order..

    We all have to have faith that is stronger than the fear of death; otherwise we won't make it. God knows our faith and He WILL test it in this life. A month ago I came down with a combo of flu/pneumonia. I was in hosp. for 7 days, sick at home a week before that. In hosp. God told me He was using me in answer to my prayers for my husband's salvation. Then I REJOICED for my trial.

    Esther is one person that when we get to Heaven, I shall seek out. She has always been a source of inspiration for me when I have had to face the "Haman's" in my life. She not only ruled well, she believed well. She is a role model for all women who love God and are faced with a situation where we need courage, in spite of our fears.

    My mother read this story to me as a child. I never forgot.

    Its a dream verse for me

    The book of Esther has many inter. ideas. I am encouraged when I read of her obedience to her uncle M. and trust in God - as she request prayer and fasting! Could this be a lesson for us to go boldly before our King? He loves us even more than King A. loved Esther - He extends the golden scepter as we seek Him. Also inter., this happened 5 years after Esther was queen.
