DAILY READINGS: 2 Kings 18:1-37; Jeremiah 51:25-64; 1 Timothy 2:1-15

The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will. Proverbs 21:1 

This verse often comes to mind as one reads through the book of Esther. Though the name of God is not found written in this book, one can clearly see God’s hand intervening in a remarkable way to the salvation of His people. He has not changed today! He is still able to arrange circumstances so that a precious, lost soul may be challenged by the gospel—through a tract, a message or a text—after all, “with God nothing shall be impossible” (Luke 1:37). — Pete Smith

Leave to His sovereign sway,
To choose and to command;
So shalt thou, wondering, own His way,
How wise, how strong His hand. —Paul Gerhardt
