God’s close presence

March 9, 2017

“…save us by your hand, and help me, who am alone and have no helper but you, O Lord.” Esther:12

I love this line from the book of Esther because it speaks to me of an understanding of God’s presence that goes way beyond feeling and emotion. Esther feels ALONE, and yet she knows that God is her helper. No matter how alone she appears, no matter how hopeless the situation seems, there is an underlying sense of God who is present even in her isolation and helplessness.
