LESSONS ON MORDECAI
Esther 6:1-14 (1) – That night the king could not sleep; so he ordered the book of the chronicles, the record of his reign, to be brought in and read to him. (NIV)
In today’s Bible reading, the king couldn’t sleep but ordered the book of records to be read, and the good deeds of Mordecai were revealed. Therefore, the king asked, “What should I do to honour a man that truly pleases me?” Haman (thinking he was the man) told the king to allow the man to be dressed in royal robes and announced to the people. Instead, the king instructed Haman to decorate and proclaim Mordecai in the city square. At that time, Haman had planned to execute Mordecai, but he was hanged on the gallows he had prepared.
Beloved, God will not physically come down to help us, but He can prompt the young and old, the unskilled and the skilled, the weak and the powerful to rescue His children from disaster. In the case of Mordecai, God seized the king’s sleep to deliver him from death and equally used an enemy to trigger his promotion. In the same manner, I decree that God shall use both your admirers and adversaries to propel you to the top, in Jesus’ name. As we approach the end of the year, never limit God’s ability to save and bless you. Keep doing the good and learn to trust God in whatever difficult situation you find yourself in because He can open the book of remembrance concerning you and deliver you.
Hymn: Jesus Saves — Priscilla J. Owens (1882)
1. Father, please unsettle my helpers until they remember me and act accordingly.

YOU ARE NEXT TO TESTIFY, AND NATIONS SHALL SEEK AFTER YOU
