Esther 8

Khumbalani SIbanda

From Victims to Victors (Jesus the better missionary)

Haman’s plan to kill Mordecai had been thwarted and instead he was hung on the gallows he’d prepared for Mordecai. His house and goods were transferred to his God-fearing enemy who had refused to bow down to Haman.

Those who put their trust in the Lord will find strength and stability in the Lord, their source and Saviour. God fought for Mordecai and he fought for the Jews.

Whatever our struggle, we only need to be still and trust in God.

The Mask Comes Off (Jesus the better Esther)

The story of Esther tells us:

  • If the balance of power seems against us, that is an illusion; if God is for us, none can be against us
  • God’s judgement on sin is absolute
  • Where sin abounds, grace abounds much more

Warning Signals (Jesus the better servant)

Once again the hand of God is invisibly at work in the life of King Ahasuerus. Through a night of insomnia, God uses the king to advance his plans.

God is not in a hurry, but also he is never late. Mordecai simply needed to wait patiently in order to see the providence of God. Haman intended to spend a day anticipating the execution of Mordecai. Instead he was compelled, by God’s good pleasure, to spend the day honouring him.

So we see God’s good plans for his children. And we see that he can never be thwarted. Let Christ’s will triumph in your life.
