In magisterial fashion, the author of Esther recorded Gods work on behalf of His people without once mentioning Gods name. We prepare for our journey in Esther by developing a sharp theological lens for understanding Gods sovereignty. God is His own interpreter, so we examine how the Bible interprets Gods providence. Because God works through people, we examine the key players in the book of Esther whom God used for His purposes. Chuck Swindoll teaches us not to fear the dark storm above our heads but to trust God for his grace. Even if our eyes see a frowning providence, Gods hiding a smiling face.
