Hadassah was taken from everything she knew and loved into a pagan palace. Her cousin Mordecai’s love for scripture and his faithfulness to Hashem was instilled into this young adopted cousin’s heart and spirit. In her foreign and stressful captivity in the Persian palace of King Ahasuerus, that same love, faith and trust in Elohe Yisrael, the God of Isreal, encouraged and delivered her and her people.
The message of the Hidden Star of Yehudah will encourage those who find themselves trapped in circumstances, not of their choosing. As Esther’s story illustrates, the result of our seemingly bleak and uncertain situations can result in deliverance if we trust and submit our lives to God.
