Esther, part 1

Daily Devotionals

The book of Esther is set after the Jewish people begin to return to and rebuild Jerusalem, and yet they are still a people subject to foreign powers and rulers. Esther finds herself a pawn in the midst of political intrigue and conflict, and yet courageously she trusts God and is used to save her people from destruction. St Andrew’s Youth Minister Lauren van der Merwe leads us through a series of devotions on this book, today focussing on Esther 1:1-2:10.
