In the book of Esther, God is never mentioned, named, or prayed to. But despite this fact, God is always working to turn the plans of the enemy upside down. God's people are enslaved to the Persian Empire and under threat from its genocidal Prime Minister, Haman. Israel's best hope is in the relatively powerless Esther and Mordecai. But God uses these powerless people to turn back the plans of the powerful. Ultimately, Esther reveals to us the Savior who not only became powerless but died and turned even the power of the grave upside down.
