Although the name of God is not found in the book of Esther, God's shaping of her life and impact is evident throughout her story. Perhaps, like Esther, you find yourself struggling to know how He wants you to live for Him in the midst of great opposition. Let Esther's example shape your strategy. Draw trusted companions alongside you, pray, and follow the advice of godly mentors. Trust Him to lead your way.
Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: “Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.”—Esther 4:15-16
Prayer: Jesus, even when I can't speak Your name, let my actions and attitudes reveal Your presence. I pray in Your ever-active, ever-present name, amen.
