Ecclesiastes 3:11, “GOD MADE EVERYTHING BEAUTIFUL IN ITS TIME”
Exactly the night before Haman was to speak to the king to have Mordecai hanged, God did not allow the king to sleep. Sleep is ordered by the Lord. “He grants sleep to those He loves” Psalms 127, Praise Him…Only those who are peaceful can have a good sleep. In fact it is a blessing from the Lord. After slogging for the entire day, sleep during the night is a gift from the Lord, wherein we get rest and also get refreshed/revived for the next day ahead… Though we all sleep and rest, our God never slumbers or sleeps but keeps watching over us…Psalms 121:3…What a loving Father we have …Even our beloved mother or dear ones may be asleep ignoring us but our Lord keeps safeguarding us …never to slumber or sleep
Now the king had learnt that Mordecai was due to be honored and Haman was not aware of all this. When he came to know that the king wanted to honor someone, he gave an excellent suggestions, to the maximum extent possible, thinking that the person the king wanted to honor was none other than Haman himself…But God started turning the tables. Though he planned maximum harm for Mordecai, God made the same Haman plan maximum amount of honor, without his knowledge … Nothing less than a miracle…
Immediately on hearing that the King had exalted Mordecai, Haman’s wife Zeresh and advisers said ”Since Mordecai, before whom your downfall has started is of Jewish origin, you will surely come to ruin. You cannot stand against him”, Esther 6:13. While they were uttering these words, the kings eunuchs arrived and hurried him away to the king… What do these words mean “You cannot stand against him” God had promised Joshua in Joshua 1:5, “No one will be able to stand up against you all the days of your life. I will never leave you nor forsake you” The words of the Lord are true…He led Joshua victoriously …”No weapon formed against you will prevail”, Isaiah 54:17. Yes, nothing designed, however well planned against the children of God can prevail. We need to claim this promise. The Devil cannot prevail… Praise the Lord. We are privileged to be in the hands of the Mighty one.
The same gallows Haman built for Mordecai was finally used to hang him. and the same honor he planned for himself, God reserved for Mordecai…”Blessed is He who trusts in the Lord “Proverbs 28 : 25 says” He who trusts in the Lord will be prospered”God intervenes at the right moment.
Are you worried that people around you prompted by the devil are planning some harm for you? Are you getting upset that the children of the enemy are flourishing? …They may flourish as the green grass but it is only for destruction forever …We are safe in His hands …
”The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth so that he might devour her child the moment it was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and his throne”, Revelation 12:4 Yes the devil is ready to take us alive but the Lord says ”Lo, I am with you always”. God is with us to protect us and safeguard us …The devil, the dragon was waiting for the opportune /appropriate moment to devour the child. Right from the beginning of accepting the Lord to the point of entering the Lord’s kingdom, Satan is after us, to steal, kill, and destroy…. But the male child, symbolic of the bride, will be snatched up to God and we will be ruling all the nations with an iron scepter … Praise God. Though our beginning was humble, God will exalt us at the right time…, blessings Sarah
