Welcome to United City Church's sermon series on Esther: Hidden God. In this powerful series, we dive deep into the captivating story of Esther and explore how God's hidden presence can transform our lives. Join us as we discover the faith, courage, and unwavering trust that Esther displayed.
The Story of Esther
Esther, an orphaned Jewish girl, rose to become the Queen of Persia during a time when her people faced persecution. Through divine orchestration, Esther found herself in a position to save her people from annihilation. This gripping tale of bravery, faith, and divine intervention holds important lessons for our lives today.
God's Hidden Presence
One of the central themes of the book of Esther is the hidden presence of God. Throughout the narrative, God's active involvement is not directly mentioned, yet His fingerprints are clearly seen. It is a powerful reminder that even when we cannot see or understand His ways, God is intricately working behind the scenes, orchestrating events for our good.
Faith that Moves Mountains
Esther's faith in God allowed her to step forward in obedience and take a stand for her people. Despite the risks and potential consequences, she demonstrated unwavering trust in God's plan. Her remarkable faith serves as an inspiration for all believers, reminding us that when we place our trust in Him, mountains can be moved.
Lessons from Esther
As we delve deeper into the story of Esther, we uncover valuable lessons that can be applied to our own lives:
1. Courage to Speak Up
Esther's story teaches us the importance of finding our voice and speaking up for what is right, even in the face of adversity. Just as Esther bravely approached the king to advocate for her people, we too are called to stand up for justice and righteousness.
2. Embracing Divine Timing
In the story of Esther, divine timing played a critical role. Esther's position as queen and the unfolding events were all perfectly orchestrated by God's unseen hand. This teaches us the significance of trusting God's timing in our own lives and being patient as He works everything together for our good.
3. Overcoming Fear
Esther's initial hesitation to approach the king reveals her fear. However, through prayer and reliance on God's strength, she overcame that fear and walked in boldness. We are reminded that with God by our side, we can conquer our fears and fulfill the purposes He has for our lives.
