But the best part of the story is the message that emerges; the message that no matter how bad things might look for a time, in the end God does win.
As Swindoll writes in his conclusion:
“As we learned in our study of Esther’s story, His hand moves invisibly, yet with invincibility, bringing His sovereign plan to completion. It includes haunting delays that seen unfair, human decisions that lack compassion, harmful deeds that bring others anguish, and hurtful disappointments that make us question God’s goodness. Nevertheless, He pursues with persistence and He refuses to be distracted. In the end, I repeat, God wins. What great comfort that brings!”
God does indeed win!
