Esther Chapter 5
Haman was a prideful man.
Boasting on ALL he had(vs11), yet still could not find satisfaction in the position and wealth given to him by the King.
He wanted Mordecai dead for not fearing him and showing him he was not intimidated by his presence.
I can’t help but think in the previous chapter Esther and Mordecai fasted seeking God’s will.
Immediately this scripture comes to mind “for we do not wrestle against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age”…..
(Ephesians 6:2 NKJV)
Though we end with the order of the gallows being constructed for Mordecai to hang- there’s still one more banquet to be had by Esther for the King, one more night, one more day!
There is Hope….this story is not finished. Just when things look like they are over for Mordecai, (gallows are going up) and Haman is boasting in the presence of friends scheming destruction-
GOD has the final say.
He works and orchestrates things beyond our comprehension.
He is fighting for us!
