Most good stories have a shocking twist, and today’s passage in Esther has one of those moments. We will see today that God doesn’t always follow our scripts or our strategy. God isn’t predictable, but he is Faithful. And while God didn’t protect his people from a evil law aimed at exterminating His people, God worked in a different way to make sure that the Jews weren’t exterminated.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God (Psalm 20:6-8).
