The story of Esther is found in the book of Esther. It is about the life of a young Jewish girl who gets caught up in the political intrigues of the kingdom of Persia between 483 BC to 473 BC. Through a series of interesting circumstances, Esther becomes the Queen of Persia. Some time after, a very ruthless man named Haman tries his best to eradicate all the Jews within the kingdom. But through a great deal of prayer encouraged by her uncle Mordecai, Queen Esther exposes Haman’s evil plans to the king who helps the Jewish people defend themselves against such tyranny.
While you and I and our children might not be thrown into a life or death situation as Queen Esther experienced, we all know what it means to be afraid. Many of us know what it is like to be persecuted for our faith in Jesus, even if only in small amounts. The story of Esther gives an astounding example of how we all need to rely on God during trials and difficulties. God wants us to seek Him for our deliverance out of all fearful circumstances. When we do this, I believe that He will rescue us in His own time and way.
Psalm 34:4 is a beautiful verse that shows this truth: “I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.”
