Although God’s name is not mentioned once in the whole book, it screams loudly of God’s power and omniscience. I could see how He had everything planned to use Esther and Mordecai to help the Jews have victory over their enemies. He gave them amazing favor, but it required bold obedience. If they chose to not be obedient, as Mordecai said, they would perish and God would bring victory through someone else. God will keep His promises….we have to do what He asks, even if it risks our lives, and many will be blessed through our obedience.
