For Such a Time as This

  • Feb 2020 Issue

What an amazing story! One woman, one king, one people, one destiny. Courage and fear, faithfulness and evil motives, love and betrayal—we find it all in the book of Esther. And above all, we see how the mighty hand of God worked through ordinary people to protect and redeem His chosen people. We see God’s faithfulness, sovereignty, and power.

This month, we hope you will be inspired by the amazing redemptive history of Esther, Mordecai, and the whole Jewish nation. We pray the book of Esther will give you a deeper insight into the feast of Purim—a joyful time for the Jewish people, when, to this day, they celebrate their deliverance from Haman. We pray that by the end of this study you will:

  • Understand better the providence of God in the ordinary events of our lives.
  • See how the almighty God can reverse destiny by His sovereign will.
  • Discover secrets to living faithfully as a believer in a pagan world.

Thank you for your prayers, friendship, and financial support of Today in the Word. This ministry wouldn’t be possible without you! Your partnership enables us to help thousands of people discover the power and beauty of God’s Word.
