Esther 4:16 If I perish, I perish
Esther was an incredible woman and Queen.
She found favor with the King when first seen!
She was so very brave and so very strong.
She sensed that something was very wrong!
Mordecai spoke with Esther his beloved niece and kin.
He boldly told her all about a deadly plot and Haman’s sin!
She needed to go immediately to her husband the King.
She tried to reach him over and over, she’d do anything!
No matter the circumstances, If I perish, I perish.
The goal is to help my people that is my wish!
She planned to appear at the Kings’ meeting without fear.
It was imperative to warn him there was a killer near!
She burst into his meeting completely unannounced.
The henchman surrounding the king were ready to pounce!
The King held out his golden Scepter over his wife.
Thereby stopping the guards and saving her life!
She asked for an audience and dinner that night.
In which she’d tell him all about her awful plight!
It is true that Haman has plans to kill me and any Jew.
The King was beyond shocked claimed he never knew!
Haman and his family were ordered hung soon after.
Esther and her King celebrated with food and laughter!
Esther’s name is along with other greats in the Bible.
Her focus was following God for her people’s survival!
There are many themes at work in the book of Esther. Notably, God’s interaction with man’s will. We see the LORD’s intolerance and distaste concerning racial prejudice. We also see how He has the power to offer His wisdom to help in times of danger. The biggest part of Esther’s story for me, is seeing God’s Sovereignty in full blown action. How the hand of GOD works in the lives of all His children.
Esther was a vessel for God’s will and purpose. He utilized the circumstances in Esther’s life to work out His divine plan and purpose. In this case to save the Jewish people and thwart Haman’s dastardly plans. So, we can trust in God to care over every aspect of our lives.
Also, in this book was God’s deliverance plan. He raised up Esther, just as He raised up so many others in the Bible. Just as He did with Moses, Joshua, and Joseph to deliver His Children from vast destruction. Ultimately through Jesus Christ, we’re delivered from death and the infernal fires of hell. We live forever, in Christ.
God is able to save His children.
Esther is a powerful book in the Bible which serves as a great reminder that God ultimately is in control, and He can do all things. Just as when we are called for His purpose, through Jesus Christ we can do all things. But only by Him and through Him, not by our own accord or timing, but His and His alone.
Esther had the Golden Scepter held out to her, the King showed her mercy and love. He granted her to come into his courts.
As children of God, isn’t it amazing that we have the “One and only KING of kings” who extends His Golden Scepter by way of grace, mercy, and love over each and every one of us!
Isn’t that a WOW in your book?
He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit (Titus 3:5).
“Father may I never forget how You deliver Your children and raise them up from way back in the days of old, to current times, thank You, in Jesus’ name, Amen.”
