And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.” 1 Peter 5:10
This week we are looking at the life of Esther and learning how she trusted in God’s sovereignty in the midst of trials. At this point in the biblical narrative, we know that many Jews in exile returned to Judah to rebuild the temple. Some Jews remained in Persia. It’s at this point of the story that we encounter Esther. An orphan raised by her cousin Mordecai, Esther found herself in a very unique situation. King Xerxes was looking for a new queen and had women from throughout the land brought before him. For such a time as this, Esther was selected as queen. Soon she would face a challenging trial where she would risk her life in order to save her Jewish people.
Open up your bibles to the book of Esther and also to 1 Peter. Begin by reviewing the memory verse from 1 Peter 5:10. After reading the memory verse, turn to the book of Esther. Read the entire book of Esther.

An order was sent throughout the entire kingdom that on a set date, all the Jews would be killed. Mordecai brought this news to Esther so that she could use her position as queen to help her people. Esther couldn’t just go before the king with a request to help her people. She knew that her life would be at risk.
