Esther 2

“Esther was taken to King Xerxes at the royal palace in early winter[d] of the seventh year of his reign. And the king loved Esther more than any of the other young women. He was so delighted with her that he set the royal crown on her head and declared her queen instead of Vashti. To celebrate the occasion, he gave a great banquet in Esther’s honor for all his nobles and officials, declaring a public holiday for the provinces and giving generous gifts to everyone.” v. 16-18
God placed Ester on the thrown even before the Jews faced the possibility of complete destruction, so that when trouble came, a person would already be in the position to help. No human effort could thwart God’s plan to send the Messiah to earth as a Jew. If you are changing jobs, or location and can’t see God’s purpose in your situation, understand that God is in control. He may be placing you in a position so you can help when the need arises.
