by Rev Joel Yong
And the king said, Who is in the court? Now Haman had just entered the outer court of the king’s palace to speak to the king about having Mordecai hanged on the gallows that he had prepared for him. And the king’s young men told him, Haman is there, standing in the court. And the king said, Let him come in.
Haman planned to speak to the king about hanging Mordecai.
But God was watching and at the exact moment where he sought to indict Mordecai, the king had insomnia and asked for the royal log to be read to him. And he realized Mordecai saved his life and no reward had yet been awarded.
So he gets Haman to give out the reward to Mordecai.
No wonder David wrote:
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
God is bigger than any enemy you face.
He can even elevate you in the face of your enemy!
Why wouldn’t you trust yourself to Him in the face of evil schemes raised against you?
