A beauty like no other turned a simple Jewish girl from being an ordinary citizen to being the queen of an entire nation! But there is something more about her than what meets the eye—she possessed a courage that helped save her entire race from annihilation.
Here are five lessons you can learn from the story of Esther:
You Are Where You Are for A Reason
God led Esther’s steps and used her as an instrument to save the Jewish people from being wiped out.
Esther became the Queen of Persia after King Xerxes’ wife, Queen Vashti, was deposed. Among all the beautiful women in the empire, Esther’s beauty and personality stood out. The king was so delighted in her that she was declared queen! Upon the request of her cousin, Mordecai, she kept her nationality a secret and later on revealed it to save her people from the impending danger Haman had planned.
God has a purpose for your life, and He allows things to happen for a reason. Like Queen Esther, God may have brought you where you are for a special purpose. Maybe you are in a workplace filled with workmates who need to hear about Jesus. Or in a campus surrounded by students who need the Lord in their life. Maybe you’re the only Christian in your family who God will use so your loved ones could hear about Him. If you find yourself in a position like Queen Esther, remember her story. Who knows? God may have placed you there for such a time as this.
You Can Run to God in Times of Trouble
When Queen Esther learned about Haman’s evil plan toward the Jews, she asked Mordecai to gather all the Jews in Susa to fast with her for three days and nights. Fasting is a spiritual discipline that Christians do. We fast to acknowledge our dependence on God and focus on Him.
Esther knew that the first thing we should do is to run to do God. Only He can help us face and win life’s biggest battles.
During the time of Queen Esther, it was against the law to approach the king without being summoned. But even if it meant risking her life, Esther went to see the king. In Esther 4:16, she bravely said, “And then, though it is against the law, I will go in to see the king. If I must die, I must die.”
With her faith in God and her people standing with hers in prayer, Esther took the most difficult decision of her life, faced the king, and saw God’s deliverance.
Pride and Hatred Lead to Destruction
Haman’s anger was aroused when Mordecai chose not to bow down to him. Because of this, he decided to kill all the Jews. Haman asked for the king’s approval to issue a decree that would have all the Jews killed. Before something tragic happens, Queen Esther had already approached the king and planned a way to stop their annihilation. In the end, the Jews were saved, and Haman was executed.
God is Sovereign
The Jews may have feared for their lives when they learned of Haman’s evil plan, but God proved that He is sovereign overall. God used Queen Esther to stop Haman’s plans. She invited Haman for a banquet with the king and exposed His evil plans of destroying the Jews. When the king learned about this, He was angered! He ordered the execution of Haman.
God is with us through difficult times. Always remember that He is actively working behind the scenes and His plans will always prevail in our lives.
May we face our obstacles like Queen Esther—fearless and with hearts full of faith. Watch and learn from her story. Get your “Esther—For Such A Time as This” Superbook DVD here. You may also get the entire Superbook Season 2 DVD set here.

She too, struggled with insecurities and low self-esteem when she was bullied by other kids at such a young age. The harsh words they hurled towards her carved a huge impact on how Kristine sees herself.
“I was bullied when I was young. They used to call me names such as “flirt” and told me that I do not belong with them. I felt that I was not beautiful and there was no place for me anywhere,” Kristine recalled.
Deprived of love and acceptance from her peers, Kristine grew up longing for security. So when love knocked at her door, Kristine willingly let him in.
She thought that maybe, this romantic relationship can give her the sense of worth and belongingness that she was craving. Maybe, this relationship can make her feel safe and secure.
Maybe, just maybe, this person can fill the void in her heart.
Kristine admitted, “I fell in love with this man. He is a Christian like me, so I thought I can be secure in this relationship. I had that kind of mindset before.”
How about you, have you ever tried to find security in your relationships? How did things turn out?
As for Kristine, things did not turn out the way she hoped.
Her then-boyfriend had to move abroad, leaving her crushed and broken. In just one snap of a finger, all her hopes came crashing down.
While trying to nurse a broken heart all by herself, Kristine chanced upon CBN Asia’s program, Superbook. Who would have thought that an animated show for children would speak to her, right?
“It was an episode about ‘What’s the Isaac of your life?’ God rebuked me that I am overly attached to somebody else, so even when it’s painful, I had to surrender the relationship to Him,” Kristine shared.
Not long after, she saw the hosts of The 700 Club Asia on her television screen, praying for a brokenhearted person who needs healing.
“They asked, ‘What’s one thing that you need to surrender? That moment, I found hope and realized that I can rely on God,” Kristine said, sharing that putting all her faith in God helped her face all her insecurities.
As a chapter of her life closes, doors of opportunities opened. Kristine got into acting and started appearing as a television extra. She also starred in TV commercials of famous brands and landed roles in reenactments of The 700 Club Asia.
More than finding her security, worth, and personal healing, Kristine is delighted that her acting stint with The 700 Club Asia became a way for her to share God’s Word with her loved ones and viewers.
“The best thing Jesus did for me, is He allowed me to have a relationship with Him. He made me dependent on Him. Despite what the world tells me – that I am not good nor beautiful enough, He appointed me to this industry. God has a purpose, and though I had fears, the Lord replaced my fear with my love for the craft,” she ended.
Are you feeling insecure?
Know that even when other people push you away, God will always welcome you with a loving embrace.
