Examples of Esther in a Sentence

  1. Emeasoba George:

    In spite of life's distressing circumstances. Never quit to trust in God. For, he (God) will surely take care of you sooner or later. Oh! yes, he can and he will do just that. But, provided you will continually trust in him in toto, scripture reference Nahum 1: 7). Besides, he (God) has already taken care of those whose conditions/circumstances were worser/more miserable than yours e.g. Jabez, Esther, Modecaih among others. So, keep on trusting in him (God) even against all odds.

  2. Emeasoba George:

    God almighty is awesome and all-powerful indeed. In fact, he (God) should not be underestimated by anyone. Because, he (God) has a track record of making the so called common people Great and he equally has a track record of making the so called ordinary people Extraordinary. Now that is to say, he (God) can make you (your own self) Great and Extraordinary overnight, regardless of your family background and academic qualifications. As a matter of fact, he (God) made Esther (an Orphan) a Queen in a foreign country, just like he made Barack Obama (a Kenyan) President of the United states of America, as well he made Joseph the general overseer also in a foreign nation just to prove that with him (God) everything is possible. Thus, you've got to stop underestimating God (come what may). ~Emeasoba George

  3. Emeasoba George:

    God can rewrite your story. Yes of course, in case you don't know. God can rewrite your story from being miserable to being enviable and from the worst to the best. As a matter of fact, he (God) rewrote the story of Jabez. And that's why, he changed his name and enlarged his coast too, scripture reference (1st Chronicle 4 : 10). Moreover, he (God) equally rewrote the story of Joseph. Now, that's why he made him (Joseph) a prime minister/general overseer in a foreign country (Egypt) to be specific, scripture reference Genesis 41 : 41-45. As well, he (God) rewrote the story of Esther. And that's why, Esther surprisingly became a queen in a foreign nation (Babylon) to be precise, scripture reference Esther 2 : 17. Besides, God rewrote the story of David. And that's why, he (God) transformed him (David) from being a shepherd to being the most celebrated king of Israel, scripture reference 1st Samuel 16 : 1 -13. Now, the above instances truly signifies that, God can surely and ­­effortlessly rewrite your story no matter how miserable and terrible your past life or current condition seems to you. Listen up, all you've got to do is this, just believe undoubtedly that he (God) can rewrite your story. Then, equally trust and wait patiently on him to do it in his own time and not at all, in your own time.
