Recalculating: For Such A Time As This!

What do I think is the lesson this post brings out from the Book of Esther? Lots of us pray for a revival. Then we wonder why a revival does not happen. I think we forget where a revival begins.

      I have heard and read several good commentaries on Esther, but I had not heard the emphasis placed on that verse. Because he chose that verse, I think Pastor Randy got the point of that book better than most.
