Read Esther chapter 10


Esther 10:3–Mordecai the Jew was second in rank to King Xerxes, preeminent among the Jews, and held in high esteem by his many fellow Jews, because he worked for the good of his people and spoke up for the welfare of all the Jews.


Even in the midst of the captivity of the Jews which was mentioned throughout this book, God still moved and worked in such a way that the Jews had people in positions of authority so they would be protected. God’s plan and vision of the big picture is so much greater than anything we could ever plan. Do we doubt that God is in control? We just have to look back through the Bible to see how God used people and orchestrated events for His glory. He did it then; He will do it again.


Father, You are the same yesterday, today, and forever. You are in control and the Bible tells stories of how You have worked and moved in so many circumstances to bring about Your will. I know You are continuing to do that even now. As I look at my life today, even as I don’t understand how You are working or why You are working the way You are, I will trust that You have everything under control.
