  • Providence? Coincidence?

The story of Esther is the story of God’s providence. Karen Jobes, in her commentary of Esther in The NIV Application Commentary, writes: “When we speak of God’s providence, we mean that God, in some invisible and inscrutable way governs all creatures, actions and circumstances through the normal and the ordinary course of human life, without the intervention of the miraculous.” God uses our decisions and actions and those of others to bring about his divine will and purpose.
