The entire Jewish nation is on the verge of annihilation because of the evil plot by a godless enemy. Though God has given clear direction to His people, Israel has largely chosen disobedience and their own way. Even in all of this, God is at work in the events of human life as He uses imperfect people to accomplish His perfect will. The book of Esther shows God’s grace and providence as He delivers His wayward people through Esther’s bravery and obedience.
