God chose Queen Esther. But what happened to Esther in Bible? Her parents died when she was a child, so she was left in the care of Mordecai. A man from the emperor’s court. She was a clever woman and a wise one. No woman was as intelligent as her. She was found in all the land as the most humble person. All the young women of the land came to be chosen by Ahasuerus, but Esther, the wisest, was the woman chosen by his heart. She was not sophisticated but rather a simple woman.
Esther became the Queen of Persia. In the Bible, Esther learned the humility lesson from Mordecai when she was in the lower grades at school. Bible does not mention it, but all her classmates or childhood friends had something to eat, but Esther had nothing. What happened to Esther in the Bible?
When she got home to the royal court in an annex, she wondered and asked Mordecai why she had no food. So Mordecai explained that they are people who believe in God, and God loves humble and obedient people. So without fasting and prayer, one cannot attain humility and praise God. Thanks to Mordecai. He was the one who taught her what true repentance means.
Who was Esther in the Bible, and what did she do?
In the king’s name, Haman commanded that in one day, all the Jews in the empire should be killed. Mordecai, dressed in sackcloth, sprinkled ashes on his head and did not hide his grief¹. Then he sent word to Esther to go to the king and intercede for his people. Esther sent Mordecai this reply, “Go, gather all the Jews of Succah and fast for me; do not eat or drink for three days, day or night, and I will fast with my maidservants, and then I will go to the king, though it is against the law, and if I perish, I perish.”
Esther was the most humble person in the Bible and the Jewish wife of King Xerxes I. She was the redeemer of Israel. After three days of prayer, Esther in the Bible stripped off her mourning garments and put on her queenly clothes, and, making herself bright and calling on the all-holy and saving God, she took with her two maidservants: one she leaned on somewhat from her comfort, and the other, following her, held her garments. She was lovely in the height of her beauty, her face was cheerful as if full of love, and her heart was gripped with fear.
