It’s hard to know the end of the story from the middle of it. It’s hard to see God’s hand of power, love and protection at work when we’re living it. In the book of the Esther there is a silence that speaks loudly. You don’t hear the name of God. You don’t hear a prayer from God’s people. Yet, the silence of Scripture speaks volumes about God in her life. We do not know the end of the story from the middle of it, but God’s story in Esther helps us see God’s hand at work in all of it.
