12 And they told Mordecai what Esther had said. 13 Then Mordecai told them to reply to Esther, “Do not think to yourself that in the king’s palace you will escape any more than all the other Jews. 14 For if you keep silent at this time, relief and deliverance will rise for the Jews from another place, but you and your father’s house will perish. And who knows whether you have not come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” – Esther 4:12-14
In the book of Esther, God is operating in the background. He isn’t really mentioned directly at all. There is talk like this from Mordecai and Esther about fasting, but they don’t even mention prayer. It is almost like God is hidden. Perhaps you sometimes feel like God is hidden or not there at all. He is always at work though. Even when you don’t see or know He is there. As you see in Esther, God brings all things together to save His people, just as Mordecai predicted. God takes care of those who belong to Him.
