Es 7:1-4 So the king and Haman came to banquet with Esther the queen. (2) And the king said again unto Esther on the second day at the banquet of wine, What is thy petition, queen Esther? and it shall be granted thee: and what is thy request? and it shall be performed, even to the half of the kingdom. (3) Then Esther the queen answered and said, If I have found favour in thy sight, O king, and if it please the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request: (4) For we are sold, I and my people, to be destroyed, to be slain, and to perish. But if we had been sold for bondmen and bondwomen, I had held my tongue, although the enemy could not countervail the king's damage.

God’s plan is coming to pass. The king loves his queen, Esther, and is willing to give her anything she wants. The king is even willing to give her up to half the kingdom. All she is asking the king to do is save her people. When she was a little child, she may not have understood why both her father and mother died. She may not have understood why she should be the queen. Now, we see God’s plan through it all. God was in control and God mapped every detail out for her.
