Wednesday began the celebration of Purim—the time the Lord rescued the Jews from what seemed like certain death. The voice and courage of a young woman, and the wisdom and faith of a wise man proved once again that our God is the defender of the innocent and protector of the weak.
Often in this life-with-Jesus we will encounter those who are against us, no matter how much love, kindness and forgiveness we may show them. They are just out to get us. Through the example of Esther and her uncle Mordecai we see the power and courage found in truly believing your God.
Haman was confident in his schemes. He was in a place of power and influence and from his point of view, the Jews were as good as gone. The King was completely unaware of what was happening behind the scenes. Being in a place of influence affords you the ability to “trust” those who serve you. But sadly, they can’t always be trusted.
Has this happened to you? In the church, in your family, in your workplace? But here’s the thing: no matter what, your High King always wins. He always brings your victory.
“Go at once,” the king commanded Haman. “Get the robe and the horse and do just as you have suggested for Mordecai the Jew, who sits at the king’s gate. Do not neglect anything you have recommended.”-Esther 6:10 (NIV)
This was the moment of Mordecai and Esther’s victory—and the moment of Haman’s defeat. And the same moment is coming for you. Your High King will use whatever and whomever He wishes to ensure that your truth is revealed and your security in the family of God is sure. So as we remember this event that happened so long ago, celebrate that He is still the same God, who fights for those He has called, and He is fighting for you!
