The queen of wisdom Esther

It is true that the book of Esther does not mention the name of God, but by no means fail to see the powerful hand of the Lord driving events.

When Esther knew that his people would be destroyed if it were not speak to the king, and asked his cousin, Mordecai, who was also his foster father (Esther 2: 7, TLB), to gather together all the Jews of Shushan and fast for her for three days, as she and her handmaids would do the same. Although the text does not speak of prayer, it is certain that they prayed and cried to God so they could have the wisdom to act and that God would deliver them from that terrible persecution.

Why is it that Esther did not open the game to the king early on and, instead, invited him to a feast? After all, the king had he extended the scepter in sign of acceptance. Even he had asked what her petition, knowing that no one would risk his life going into his presence without your authorization if it were something very serious or serious. And she invited him to another banquet, with nothing to reveal to you. It's amazing how Queen Esther acted with deliberation, calm and lack of impulsivity.

That night, between one and another banquet, the king could not sleep. Restless, he asked them to bring him the chronicles of the kingdom and someone to read to him. They read exactly on the conspiracy raised by two eunuchs, Bigtã and Teres, to kill him. The plot was discovered by Mordecai and brought to the attention of the monarch. Both were dead.

Then the king asked, "What honors were given to Mordecai?" In the meantime, someone entered the courtyard and the king asked, "Who's there?" […] "Haman," he replied. "Send him in," he ordered. So Ahasuerus asked him, "What is done to the man whom the king wishes to honor?" Haman, in his selfishness, gave the best suggestions thinking he would be the honorable person. what haman could ever imagine is that his great foe, the true Jewish God, Mordecai, is who would receive his own, Haman, many, many honors.

Imagine how Haman must have felt when he had to drive through the streets of Shushan, on horseback, Mordecai, the person he hated most and who had already prepared a gallows. Now, I had to announce to the people aloud: "So if done to the man whom the king wishes to honor." This is what our mighty God comes to those who love Him. To your loved ones our Lord, brought them out of the enemy traps and reward even while they sleep.

Thanks to the wisdom of Queen Esther, King Ahasuerus was taken to honor the faithful Mordecai and the Jewish people were freed from persecution imposed by the evil Haman who had the deserved fate just in the very trap he had made for the righteous God, Mordecai. Those who hope in the Lord will never be disappointed!
