Today’s reading: Esther 6:10
Turning evil plans into blessings
We read in Esther 6:10:
10 Then the king said to Haman, “Hurry, take the robe and the horse, as you have suggested, and do so for Mordecai the Jew who sits within the king’s gate! Leave nothing undone of all that you have spoken.”
The story of Esther and Mordecai is a great example of how Yahweh works behind the scene and blesses His people.
What other people meant for evil is transformed by God as a blessing. Haman plotted the death of Mordecai. He singled out Mordecai and even made gallows for him.
Haman hated Mordecai so much that all he wanted to do was to see him die. He was consumed by hate, pride, and evil.
However, as hard as he tried to get rid of Mordecai, God was not on his side. We see here how God worked things out. The king commanded Haman to give honor to the person whom he despised and hated the most — Mordecai.
Instead of him killing Mordecai, he found himself bringing honor to him!
Can you just see how ironic this was and how frustrating this might have been to Haman?
When God acts, even your enemies will give you honor and glory. When you stay humble, God will surely exalt you in due time.
Truly, God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble.
The story of Esther, Mordecai, and Haman should remind us that God is always in control and no matter what happens, He will cause all things to work out for good to those who love Him.
