Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Esther 5 & 6)
"God Rules The Affairs of Man”
Text: Esther 6:4
"So the king said, “Who is in the court?” Now Haman had just entered the outer court of the king’s palace to suggest that the king hang Mordecai on the gallows that he had prepared for him.”
This Truth that “God Rules The Affairs of Man,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
This Truth is clearly seen throughout the Book of Esther.
Haman’s wicked plan to destroy the Jews, the fasting of Esther, the “favor,” of Esther that gripped the heart of the king, and the invitation to ask for anything, and Esther’s delay of one night to reveal her request- so that Haman could prepare what would be “his own gallows,” then come into the king’s court to ask the king’s permission to kill Mordecai At The Same Time the king wants to HONOR Mordecai; and then the king commands Haman himself to Honor the man he wants to kill Exactly The Way Haman Wanted To be Honored!
Behold how Our God Rules the Affairs of Man!
Haman’s Pride is crushed as he is forced to publicly honor the man he wants to kill!
Here’s our lesson Warrior. God makes all things work together for good
To those who Love God, and who are the called (like Esther and Mordecai)
According To God’s Purpose.
“And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.”(Rom.8:28).
These events of Esther being chosen to be Queen, Mordecai overhearing the plot to kill the king and NOT being rewarded, the king’s sleepless night, the one of many books of the Chronicles that the king’s servant brought, and the specific page where this event occurred was selected….. this was not luck! It was ordered by God Who Rules The Affairs of Man! Each of these “events” isolated alone may seem insignificant by themself; but when they are all mixed together as “things,” in God’s time and under His management - They Become Good and Perfect For You and I.
Oh Behold the Wonder of The Wonderful Works of God In The Lives of His Faithful Warriors!
Each “thing,” or event, or tragedy, may not make sense or even appear good - but when taken together with other “things” they become The Wonderful Works of God in our Life.
The Favor of God is leading Esther and Mordecai through these “things,” from captives to Become Queen and Prime Minister of the Persian Empire!
God Rules The Affairs of Man; and this includes you and I Warrior! Here is the patience of the saints who Walk in Love and Obedience to their Commander:
“Here is the patience of the saints; here are those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus.” (Rev.14:12).
God Rules The Affairs of Mankind, and He makes ALL things work together for the good of those who Love Him, those who are the called. According To His Purpose.”
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
