SCRIPTURE: Esther 6:14 – 7:10
SHOW NOTES: Do we wait for the Lord or are we prone to run ahead, devising our own plans to “fix” the problem? As we reach this point in the story of Esther, she could have revealed her request either in the throne room or at the first feast with the king and Haman. While she entertained them at this first feast, Esther extended yet another invitation for a second feast.
Once again, King Ahasuerus asks Esther, “What is your wish, Queen Esther? It shall be granted you. And what is your request?” The Queen had prepared herself and waited to present her case to the king. Now, she humbly asks him to grant mercy for herself and her people from a wicked foe and enemy!
"Then you will know that I am the Lord; those who wait for me shall not be put to shame.” (Isa. 49:23)
