Esther, Day 8
A time of gladness and joy. Read Esther 8.
As the Jewish people come to realize that what was meant to be a difficult and deadly time for them has now turned into a chance and opportunity, the rejoice. They praise God for the way he has turned events around and how he orchestrated such a wonderful plan.
For me, things have been weird lately. I’ve had a lot of emotions up and down. Some days I think I’ve gotten things figured out and other days, I am concered about what could be next. The world is like that. Yet through everything, God is faithful and he is still in control.
I’m so thankful that no matter whether things feel good or feel bad, we can know that God is still in control. God still has plans and he sees a much bigger picture than we do. Do we trust him, even in the difficult situations, to bring everything back to glorify Him?
