Welcome to God’s Word for Life lesson companion podcast from Word Aflame curriculum. LJ Harry encourages adult disciples to think deeply about God’s Word, to further develop their personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and to make a greater commitment to the purpose and plan of God for their lives.
This episode looks at Esther 4:13–17. Although the name of God is not seen in the ten chapters of Esther, His providence and presence are seen everywhere. Pick up your Bible or phone, turn to Esther 4, and enjoy this episode to find out how Esther remained faithful when it could have cost her life.
- Have you faced pressure in worship? Where do you see the enemy fighting people today regarding worship?
- Have you ever encountered a situation so dire that you felt you would never get out of it, but you did because of the hand of the Lord?
- What are some challenges Esther faced that we also face? What are some different challenges to our faith that we face that she may not have faced?
LJ Harry is the senior pastor at Mount Vernon Church in Mount Vernon, Ohio, and is the adult editor for God’s Word for Life curriculum.
