Morning Prayer, Friday, December 14, 2018 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY: GOD WON’T FORGET YOU
Father God, when it seems like my enemies have won, I won’t lose heart. Instead, I will fast, pray and believe that You will give me the victory. Amen
Deuteronomy 20:4 and Esther 7:5-10
"Thank God for giving us the victory over those who plot against us." As we continue on in the book of Esther we learn more about how the higher your status level the easier it is for you to become corrupt. Haman was pretty high up the chain of command to the point where he expected everyone to bow down when they came into his presence. When Esther’s uncle, Mordecai refused, Haman put a plan in motion to annihilate he and all the Jews. You know what else, the king signed off on it. Mordecai was devastated. Sometimes, it looks like the enemy has won. Esther tells her uncle and her people to fast and pray. Prayer works. During the prayer and fasting, the king has a restless night. He ordered for the book of chronicles to be brought to him. As he read through it, he discovered that nothing had ever been done for Mordecai for exposing the two men who tried to assassinate the king. Something has to be done, he tells his assistants. His timing could not have been more perfect. In God’s perfect timing, He sends Haman through the door. King Xerxes sends him out to put a royal robe on Mordecai, a royal crest on his head and lead him through the city on a royal horse. How would you like it if the person you dislike the most is treated like royalty and you are asked to be the presenter? Hmm. Haman was livid. The last thing he thought was that he would have to honor a man who was beneath him and that he despised. None of us know how God will move or when he will move when our enemies come against us. We just have to be patient and wait our way through it. Your enemies or those not living out God’s Word may be trying to take you out. Don’t lose heart. If you can hope and believe even when it looks like you are losing, God will work things out in your favor.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.." John 3:16
