Isn’t our God mighty? As we read in Psalm 54, there is absolutely nothing he can’t deliver us from.
My prayer for you today is to be encouraged and know that God’s deliverance is there for you.
I was reading Esther chapters 5-7, where Mordecai had been set up to be hanged because he did not stand for Haman. “Then went Haman forth that day joyful and with a glad heart: but when Haman saw Mordecai in the king’s gate, that he stood not up, nor moved for him, he was full of indignation against Mordecai.” Esther 5:9. Haman wanted the glory for himself, however, Mordecai was a Jew, he only sought to worship one God, God Almighty.
Due to his pride, Haman decided he wanted Mordecai hanged because he showed him no respect. However in chapter 6: 2 “And it was found written that Mordecai had told of the king’s Chamberlains the keepers of the door, who sought to lay hand on the King Ahasuerus.”
The king found out that Mordecai sought to save him from his enemies, he found out that he was in fact, an honourable man. So the King sought to honour Mordecai and commanded that Haman, the same man who was burning in resent towards him, would honour Mordecai with special apparel “…and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king’s most noble princes, that they may array the man ritual whom the King delighted to honour…” Esther 6:9
Haman burned in fury as he thought he was the one worthy of such honour, however, it was Mordecai, the one who he sought to hang because he was a Jew.
“And Mordecai came again to the king’s gate. But Haman hasted to his house mourning, and having his head covered.” Esther 6:12
Mordecai who originally was doomed for death had now been delivered and not only so, but honoured by the king because of his faithfulness. He was a child of God and sought only to honour God and God looked after him, he turned what was meant for evil again for good.
Let this be an encouragement unto you that even if it seems like this was something that can only happen in the bible, you are wrong. Friend, be faithful even when you think no one is listening or looking,
THE TRUTH IS,
God is always listening and he is always looking.
If you are his daughter or son, honour him in everything you do. What may seem like your downfall or secret enemies rising up against you, is only the begining of what the Lord is working out for you behind the scenes, you must stay humble and loyal at his feet.
1 PETER 5:6
Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.
