Miracle in Disguise

EstherThe story of Esther in the Bible is one of my favorites. It shows that every little event is part of an interactive master plan. Purim is a day of celebration for deliverance of the Jews where a wicked man named Haman had selected the date of their annihilation by CASTING LOTS (Pur is Persian for “lot”).

In the book of Esther we don’t have “great” obvious miracles like plagues, walls of water, manna from heaven or stopping the Sun. Purim is a great miracle in disguise in the real drama of life. It is not one specific event. Rather it’s all the details hanging together.

Purim is celebrated with with extreme joy. People wear costumes and masks with the purpose to show that nothing is as it seems, but with awareness that God is ALWAYS pulling the strings, even when things seem to be “just happening”

“The lot is cast into the lap, but its every decision is from the LORD.” Prov. 16:33
