Esther 10 - Key

v2

And all the acts of his power and of his might, and the declaration of the greatness of Mordecai, whereunto the king advanced him, [are] they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia?
The Bible references several "lost books," like book of the chronicles of the kings of Media and Persia, and the book of Jasher. It says that all the emperor's acts were written. This makes me think of how the Lord knows everything about all of us, and everything we do, and has recorded it, as if in books:
Daniel 7:10
A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.
Revelation 20:12
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is [the book] of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
This makes me even more thankful that we can come to Him and receive forgiveness for our sins.

Application
Malachi 3:16

Then they that feared the LORD spake often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard [it], and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name.
Psalm 56:8
Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: [are they] not in thy book?
I'll conduct myself with the realization that the Lord can observe and record everything, the good and the bad.
