And Now Back to the Story
The book of Esther never mentions the name of God. But it is none the less the story of God and His working through a godless king, an evil man, and a strikingly beautiful queen. He speaks without speaking. He teaches without instruction. And He shows His sovereignty powerfully and purposefully.
Movies, books, radio dramas, we gravitate to story and we can’t be satisfied with part of a story. Our minds hunger for the conclusion. How does it end?
It is too easy to translate that proclivity into life. When you are five, you can’t wait to be six. When you are 15, 16 is the goal. When you are single, you want to be married (and often as soon as possible). Then you want children, a better job, and a new house. All the while, we rush through life, waiting to get back to the story.
But the story, your story, is being told right now. No need to linger, longing for the story to start. Just like Esther, where an unnamed God is working behind the scenes – in your life a known God is writing your story even this very hour. Each scene is needful. It’s time to engage in every one.
