Our chapter in the book of Esther today is one of the great plot twists in all literature and in all history. A whole series of what seemed to be random events have strung together in the story leaving God's people in danger and the queen hosting not one, but two, banquets for the King and the wicked man behind the genocidal plan. We are not given the reasons Esther decided to throw another banquet, but what we do know is that in this break in time God turned the tables. A random sleepless night and random bedtime reading reminded the king that he had never honored Mordecai. This is the beginning of Mordecai's honor and Haman's downfall. But more than this, the story reminds us that God is always at work bringing glory to Himself in the story of history, and He does this by lifting the lowly.
