Luke 15:29 “The son said, ‘Look how many years I’ve stayed here serving you, never giving you one moment of grief, but have you ever thrown a party for me and my friends?” (MSG)
Haman was even ready to pay a bribe to make sure the plot went through! He used his personal resources to influence the King’s sense of judgement!
Esther 3:13 “And the letters were sent by posts into all the king’s provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, [even] upon the thirteenth [day] of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, and [to take] the spoil of them for a prey.”
Haman hatched a “perfect plan” against Mordecai and got the King’s approval to carry it out. Can you imagine how Mordecai would have felt? I think it is better imagined than experienced.
Beloved, I imagine how sad Mordecai must have felt. He felt used, cheated, dumped and now to be destroyed! That’s very normal as a human being; but the question is: after the “bad feelings” what do you do next?
Most people switch on the “bitter and angry button”. Bitter and angry against “Haman” and then against God! They wonder why a “so called loving God” would allow such to happen to them.
The issue however is this: none of such feelings will change anything. You will just be channeling the right energy in the wrong direction. The devil’s plan is to make you sad and bitter, so he will turn you against God!
Next time you feel that way, simply tell the devil, “I can see your Haman; your plot ain’t going to succeed. Rather than get angry at my God, I will turn Him against you!”
Mordecai and his Jewish folks sought God’s intervention, and by so doing turned the almightiness of God against the kings and so called powerful rulers of this world, men of little might and “human schemers,” so power drunk they feel they can do and undo! Hear this:
