The story of Esther focuses on two key Jewish characters living in the middle of the Persian Empire, around 750 miles from Jerusalem, used by God to foil a plot by an evil man desiring to exterminate the Jews, God's people. Throughout the story, one very important character is conspicuously absent. Esther is the only book in Scripture with no reference to God or any interaction with Him. So where is God? While He is not named, God is definitely not absent. In fact, He is the central character in this wonderful story, but He is always in the shadows accomplishing His purpose and rescuing His people. Esther is the story of God's providence, His secret control of all things and the beautiful truth that God uses ordinary flawed people in His plans.
