Haman the prideful man Esther 3 part 1

Pride is a deceptive master.  Xerxes honored Haman.  Haman had the opportunity to show Humility and Grace in his place of Honor.  Such an act would have sealed the love of his King and his country…Ask Esther.  Instead, he felt entitled to be worshipped and when he found that a Jew failed to worship him, he not only decided to punish Mordecai, but, he decided to punish God and all his people.  What arrogance, what Gaul what a big mistake.

When those who take issue with the acts of God’s people decide to punish God—they place themselves in a place of certain failure.  They may do damage, but the final outcome is inevitable…God Wins.  We as his children face more situations as the years pass where being on the side of God does not mean favorable treatment. We face greater fear of retribution  with each new special interest and “Tolerence” law that is passed.  We do as Mordecai and Esther did.  We follow God’s leadership with Humility and grace and seek to show his best side to all we meet.  When we face opposition, we stand firm in the faith and trust God to execute his will and become ok with whatever the outcome.  We are simply passing thru and need to be content whatever the circumstance we face.  Help me Lord to withstand the Hamans of the World and honor you with my Life.

God Bless You

3 After these events, King Xerxes honored Haman son of Hammedatha, the Agagite, elevating him and giving him a seat of honor higher than that of all the other nobles. 2 All the royal officials at the king’s gate knelt down and paid honor to Haman, for the king had commanded this concerning him. But Mordecai would not kneel down or pay him honor.

3 Then the royal officials at the king’s gate asked Mordecai, “Why do you disobey the king’s command?” 4 Day after day they spoke to him but he refused to comply. Therefore they told Haman about it to see whether Mordecai’s behavior would be tolerated, for he had told them he was a Jew.

5 When Haman saw that Mordecai would not kneel down or pay him honor, he was enraged. 6 Yet having learned who Mordecai’s people were, he scorned the idea of killing only Mordecai. Instead Haman looked for a way to destroy all Mordecai’s people, the Jews, throughout the whole kingdom of Xerxes.


This is an amazing Journey. I hope you will hear from the Lord, as you seek Him with your heart. Matthew 6:33
