Today's reading: Esther 7:1-6
We're now to Esther's second meal and the final piece of her plan to reveal Haman's evil plot to King Ahasuerus and seek his favor and help. Esther's "for such a time as this" moment has arrived, and with God has her protector and guide, she handles herself and the situation well. Showing wisdom beyond her years, she keeps her emotions in check as she humbly presents her request to the king, taking care to be accurate and factual with what she says. God's presence, leading and guiding Esther's every word and action, were absolutely evident in this precarious situation.
