In this episode, Erin Olson discusses how it doesn't matter even
if God's name isn't mentioned because God is constant. God is
sovereign. This is true today and will be true tomorrow. God is
still God whether we acknowledge Him or we don’t. God still causes
the sun to rise and set regardless of whether we say His name in
public or not, and regardless of whether it is allowed or not.
In the book of Esther, we see the heart of a man who hated God and hated His people. Haman was an Amalekite, and Amalekites were sworn enemies of the Jews. Haman wanted nothing more to destroy a man who refused to bow down to him and seize the opportunity to take revenge on the Jewish people. Haman was consumed with power and pride. Haman’s position got him access to the king and the king issued a decree upon Haman’s urging.
But God — even if He is never mentioned in the book of Esther, was at work. What looked like doom for the people of God turned into a victory that is still celebrated to this day by the Jewish people. How amazing is that?
