God always has a purpose

In Esther, chapter one, Memucan, a prince of Persia, an advisor to Ahasuerus, gave this advice to the king: If we don’t reprimand Vashti (the queen), we will have a country of angry women, out of control, who do not know their place. Give her position to a woman who knows her place! Ahazuerus agreed with his advisor and began his search. Memucan must have felt honored. But we know the rest of the story. God is always about rescue and always about His plan being fulfilled. Instead of controlling a bunch of angry women, God had in mind rescuing His own people, the Jews — and He did. Take a deep breath and read the book of Esther for a good reminder of how God is always on the side of rescuing you, His own child.
