Esther: For Such a Time as This
This title comes from Esther 4:14 where Mordecai encourages Esther to see her place in God's plan to save the people of Israel from being the victims of a wicked, genocidal, plot against them. She was strategically placed to make a difference! Our hope is that as we study this tremendous story together, your heart will be challenged and encouraged to see the greatness and sovereignty of our God as He "works all things together for good for those who are called according to His purpose" (Romans 8:28).
