Preacher: Keith Barker, elder
Key Text: Esther 4:14
Description: The Book of Esther teaches the providence of God. God saw beforehand what the people would do and even though they were out of the will of God by not going back to their homeland, they were not beyond His care. Providence involves God providing, directing, and leading people who sometimes do not want to be led. The infinite wisdom, continuing providence, and overwhelming power of God in the preservation of His people in fulfilling His covenant with them is displayed beautiful in this book. Even the most insignificant events and ordinary happenings of the world with its rulers and subjects are appointed and directed by God to affect His purposes.
