Reading Esther

My heart and prayers have gone out to each of you that posted about dealing with a “Nabal.” Feel free to keep posting there on the Abigail thread! I wish that I could do more to lighten your load. I wish I better knew how to counsel you. My heart breaks over the things that break God’s heart – like verbal and physical abuse, and addiction – but I do not know His plans or answers for each of your situations. So I will pray, knowing that He is able to move mountains, that He is the God of All Comfort, and that He is mighty to save. If you feel that you need a counselor’s advice, please call Focus on the Family counseling department toll free at 1-800-232-6459 Monday - Friday between the hours of 8:00 and 4:30 Mountain Time.

Thanks for being patient with my somewhat erratic posting schedule. Next, we are reading another favorite biblical woman of mine - Esther. Are you ready to read an entire book of the Bible at once? Esther's story is linked here. Don’t worry, it’s not too long ... about nine chapters, and it’s a great story. Esther has a whole book named after her; she shares that distinction with Ruth. Another interesting thing about Esther’s book is that God’s name is not mentioned even once. So there won’t be any statements like, “God remembered Esther and did for Esther…” like we saw with Sarah and Rachel and Leigh. We’ll have to look between the lines to see God’s hand at work.

IC and others asked how I get insights when I read the Bible. Well, I don’t always, but I do now more than I used to. I’m not certain how best to answer this question, but I’ll try. Sometimes when I read, insights and connections jump out at me, and other times … well, not so much. We can hear but not really listen and in the same way we can read and understand the words, but not really digest the story. So its important to ponder and think about what you’ve read. Pray about it. Chew on it and digest it for a while. That is why I normally don’t have us discuss it right after completing the reading. I want you to go through your day thinking about this woman and her story, wondering what her life was like. Maybe try to tell her story in your own words and see what questions arise in your mind. Go back to the text and see if there are any answers there to those questions. Think about why some details are given and others are not – what are the important details? Ask yourself how this can apply to your own life.

With that said, the story of Esther is going to be longer than any we’ve read so far and with no clear statements about what God is saying or doing. So this is one will be a lot to bite off and chew. Feel free to just focus in on one aspect of the story that interests you if you want to with your comments. And you are always welcome to post your questions; the women here are good about trying to answer them for you. I generally try to answer any that don’t get answered, though I don’t always have time.

Make sure you have the time to read all nine chapters before you begin. Also, pray for understanding first. Then post your “I’ve finished reading” here when you are done.

I look forward to our discussion - sweet blessings to you today!

  2. I read all nine chapters. Although it does not mention God revealing anything to Esther, it is very apparent that she was favored by him and convinced King Xerses to stop the decree... wow! Can't wait until tmw...

  9. I didn't read it yet -- it's now late evening in the UK and I sure haven't got time to read nine chapters however short they are and maybe will have to do it when I get home tomorrow night so I am in the privacy of my own bed in my own bedroom.
    Thank you to all those who have been praying about "living with Nabal" - I have been very aware of people praying which is a real help when my "praise the Lord" is being said through gritted teeth (as it must at times be for all of us).
    I remember that we are told to praise Him IN all things not FOR all things -- subtle difference in words, totally different in meaning. So, through the rows and the heartache I will praise the Lord and pray for Abigail's strength and patience.
    Yeah, I should have put this in the Abigail thread but I started out to say "can't do Esther just yet" and then sort of kept going.
    God bless you all.
    I'd use my Google account to post but "Nabal" might see it!

  12. Wow...I must say after reading the intro in my Bible to the book of Esther and it referencing Esther as been viewed for it's secularity, I thought oh my this sounds like a very difficult read what the intro said. I found myself enthrawed and thought this is just like a fiction Christian novel it kept my attention so much.

    A great big THANK YOU to Rachel for doing this study. I cannot believe how much I look forward to studying God's Word. I've always read it and studied it while in a Bible Study guide but never studied it simply by just reading it. By learning in this manner of reading and then discussing and I am to really retain what I've learned about all these characters.

    May God RICHLY bless you!!!!

  13. Does anyone else have a version of the Bible that has a chapter ten? I have NIV which has a very short ch. 10. I'm going to check my ESV.

    ReplyDelete
  14. thank you Rachel! I certainly appreciate your prayers - I just read your comment today and all day yesterday I kept speaking out That God Knows...I would say to my husband that I believe that the Lord wants me to know that He knows...that every time I am tempted to even despair of not being heard...I am to focus on Jesus and to know that He knows...Our God is an awesome God! I am so dependent on Him as to how to work through this. I can not tell you how touched I am that you prayed for me. Here I am not feeling very connected to the Body of Christ and Jesus touches me through you and others who are doing this study- revealing how He calls us to be one Body in Him.

  15. I love this story! Esther is one of my all time favorite women of the Bible. What courage! She was ready to die, if need be, but she knew she couldn't just sit back and do nothing. I pray for that kind of courage.

    I'd first read this story many, many years ago. But I was so fascinated by what I was reading, that I didn't realize that God's name was never mentioned. But He was so all over this situation. There's no doubt that everything was orchestrated by Him. There is so much power in prayer.

    Can't wait till tomorrow!

  16. SweetPea - yep, our Bibles have a chapter 10 in the book of Esther too but since it doesn't contain our study-girl Esther, I left it off today's long reading.

    But its only about a paragraph or two long if yall want to read it too.

  20. I read it! I too have loved this story since I was a little girl. I think it was the first book of the Bible that I ever read all the way through and all by myself (age 10 I think). I keep re-reading it and am really looking forward to discussing it with all of you this week! I'm sure pleanty of new insights will abound!

    God's Peace be with all of you tonight (or tody depending...)!

  21. I am so thankful for this study! I enjoy all the readings and everyone sharing. I am praying for those who ask as I read, and feel that God is reaching people who weren't able to reach out in their immediate 'public' way, but in this can share and seek guidance. Thank you Rachel, for being used by God. I am getting so many blessings from this.
    I finished this reading and will be looking forward to more inspired insight from others.
    Blessings to you all

  22. I have completed the reading of Esther and am anxiously awaiting our discussions.

    This study has been very helpful to so many women, enabling us to reveal the secret anguishes that have plagued our spirits for so long; especially after we read Abigail. It seems that many of us have Nabels in our lives, and being able to discuss this with others has been great therapy.

    Now, Esther comes shining through with her strength, courage, and similarities reminiscent of Abigail. Can't wait till we get started!

    My prayers are with all of you who are in need of them.

    Blessings to you, my sisters,

  23. I read it and loved the translation that was linked. Thanks! I thought, well...I will have to break the nine chapters up because I have to get ready for work!!! Ha! Nine chapters later here I am and very happy that I took the minutes to read this in one sitting to digest. Looking forward to the discussion also....

  29. I'm a day or two behind, so I just read about Abigail. She is wonderful! David is one of my favorite people in the Bible anyway because he was a "friend of God." How cool! As much as he messed up, God still considered him a friend! And now, paired with Abigail! Wow! What a combination. Abigail seems to be a great example of a Proverbs 31 woman. We should all strive to be more like her.

  57. Queen Esther was a humble and wise woman of God. Unlike the other “candidates” for queen, who took items with them to go and see King Xerxes, she took nothing, except, what eunuch Hegai suggested. To me this exuded a woman, who wanted to be different, and set a standard….that she was naturally and spiritually beautiful, and didn’t need any enhancements. Also, Esther was highly favored among any of the other virgins. Ch 8:2 mentions how Esther was placed under Hegai’s care and she pleased him and “won” his favor. She was given maids and they were placed in the best palace in the harem. Talking about favor.

    Esther also won the favor of the king and was able to save her family as a result of this favor. Haman plotted to destroy the Jews…especially, because of his issue w/Mordecai not kneeling down and paying respect to him. Therefore, Haman plotted to not only destroy Mordecai, but Mordecai’s entire family…the Jews. Little did Haman know that God had Mordecai in the right place at the right time to hear of his plot. As a result, Mordecai tore his clothes and put on sackcloth and ashes and went throughout the city in such dispair. Mordecai’s condition got back to Esther and she sent Hathach, the eunuch, to Mordecai to see what’s troubling him. Mordecai had the eunuch to deliver the reason to Esther and instructed her to let the king know what’s going on. Esther, did something very crucial….when faced with a crisis and needing answers in how to handle such a crisis. She fasted….I b/l, prayer was incorporated as well…although, the bible didn’t clearly state it. She wasn’t alone…but, she gave instructions for ALL (there’s power in numbers) the Jews to come together and fast for 3 (father, son, and Holy Ghost) days….. After the fast, she went to see the king. In CH 5, imagine the “KING” sitting on HIS royal throne in the hall and he sees Esther standing in the court, he was PLEASED with her and held out to her the gold scepter (can you say FAVOR??) THEN, he goes on to say What is your request….even up to ½ of the kingdom, it will be given to you.

    Esther requested for king and Haman’s presence at the banquet. That’s where Esther petitions for her family to be saved and exposed Haman, for the villian he is….and the gallows that Haman had built for Mordecai, he was hanged on. (when you dig one ditch, there’s no need to build two…because only one will be needed….just for you). also, Haman's sons were hanged as well.

    Esther showed humility by bowing b/f King Xerxes, showing respect and honor (similar to Abigail bowing b/f David…and being found favorable in David’s eye’s and placed in esteem honor).

    I think about title of Bishop TD Jakes’ book “Repositioning Yourself” and how God repositioned Esther from a Jew, who's family was frowned upon and treated harshly by other nationalities during that time….to a woman of esteem honor and respect. What an inheritance she rcv’d….Haman’s estate…her family receiving their legal rights assemble and protect themselves. Mordecai rcv’d the signet ring from the King and Esther appointed him over the estate. ….Mordecai went out in style (he left the King’s presence wearing royal garments of blue and white, a large crown of gold and a purple robe of fine linen…Ch 8:15). Other nationalities ended up becoming Jews b/c the fear of the Jews had siezed them…a nationality, once degraded…was “Upgraded” to a nationality of reverence.
    Awesome lesson showing that if God be for us…who can be against us. What the devil meant for evil, God had already turn it around for Esther and Mordecai’s good. If we draw nigh unto Him, He will draw nigh unto us. Those that humble themselves before Him, shall be exalted….. Lastly, ALL things….ALL things work together for the good to them that LOVE the Lord and are called according to His purpose.

    Thanks Rachel again for allowing God to use you in orchestrating this bible study.
    Blessings on you always and for the wonderful and blessed women that share in this study.

  59. Enjoying reading all your thoughts on Esther.
    I thought about the fact that Esther didn't rush in all guns blazing but had patience. She requested the king and Haman join her at a banquet so that she could show respect and hospitality to them before she made her request to the king. What a great lesson for me.

    I have read all nine chapters. And enjoyed them all. You can see God's favor throughout the whole book. He is amazing. When you trust Him, He is faith and will work everything out for your good. He will even cause your enemies to bless you, as was the case with Mordecai and Haman. We truly serve an awesome God!

  66. Rachel, I've already posted but wanted to know if you would in your discussion address the issue of what is the month of Adar, month of Nisan, month of Sivan?

    It seems like my foot notes said something like Adar meant Jan. and Feb.

    Please explain further...is this just a greek term for the name of the months? Off the subject, but then do you know from where the names of our months came: Jan, Feb, etc.

    I look forward to having this clarified in my analytical and logical mind.

    I know when I brought up the subject of murder or killing (with Jael) that everyone's discussion just really solidfied my understanding. That's what I LOVE about this study...we sometimes go in not being able to comprehend or grasp an idea and then we are transformed in our thinking.

    Powerful! Esther must have thought that she will be doomed if she did and doomed if she didnt!
    If she spoke up she risked being killed for appearing before the king without permission. If she didnt speak up then herself and her family will be wiped out!
    We need to recognise that God raises us up for a time to be strategically placed for good works. If we are not willing to step up to the plate, he will raise up someone else to do the job but then we will then be useless to the Kingdom so He might as well kill us....
    Sobering thought!

  76. I read about Esther. My computer at home is down so I have limited time at work to respond. Dear, sweet Sisters please know I am very much in prayer for the requests you have been so brave to share with us. I know that some of you are still praying for my son and my family. Things are getting better everyday. I saw my son eat ice cream for the first time in a long time. He's trying and your prayers are the reason he is. When I saw him fix that bowl of ice cream I had to leave the room. I cried and praised the Lord for a few minutes and then returned to watch him enjoy his ice cream. Thanks again.

    Love you all!!!

    Ladies, I fervently send out a request for your prayers. My son has a blood clot in his leg which has been moving upward very quickly. He is 43, and is a heavy alcoholic/smoker. He is a very good man who has always helped people, i.e. EMT, Search & Rescue,and the National Diaster Team. Unfortunately, he let a divorce leave him bitter and broken, and as a result he has taken the wrong path. He desperately needs our prayers for salvation, healing and deliverance from these vices, as well as the ability to forgive. The doctor is very concerned about the clot reaching his heart.

    Thank you so much ladies. I know this is a lot to ask to put on your plates, but my son really needs us right now. I appreciate your help immensely.

    God's blessings to each of you.

  89. Karyl, My heart and prayers go out to you and your son. There is nothing impossible with God. This study is so awesome when you read about how many people have needs in their lives and this group has really banned together for every prayer request. It's almost like we are all in the same room reaching out to each other for help. God has certainly put together a good group of women.
    God bless you and I pray that God will open your son's eyes to the fact that he needs to turn to the Almighty because He can help him.

  93. What I got from this reading was that Esther wore the beauty of Christ. She used her natural & inward beauty rather than outward adormnment to become Queen. Esther was also a humble person. It wasn't about what she wanted it was all about God's perfect will (not His permissive will). She was genuine. She did not try to manipulate the situation in her favor. (How many times have we as women tried to do that?) She also did not try to impress the King by being someone or something she wasn't. She let Christ shine through her. She truly had a heart after God and trusted him completely . You should watch the movie "One Night With The King" if you haven't seen it yet. I thought it was very good!!

It's nice to be here for each other; knowing that when we post a need, people are praying. Sometimes when I re-read my post I'm a little emabarrased because I think I sound different then what I intend to, and I'm sometimes a little to directive. Sorry about that!

    Karyl- I prayed for you and your son, and will continue to pray as you come to mind.

    I also prayed for the new Anonymous post from last reading. I prayed for God's authority and covering over your family again.

    Love you guys!
