Hamaan was sunk. His hated was being given a personal parade that Hamaan designed, grand marshalled and led. When it was over Hamaan had announced to the entire kingdom that Mordechi was an awesome man. Now as he contemplated Mordechi’s demise, it looked pretty silly. What is more, he spent all that money on a gallows, he changed the law to kill the Israelite people…The King will be less than pleased. Hamaan, captain of his own ship, just learned that the name of that ship was Titanic…
When we try to play God in our lives, more times than not, we play out scenarios like Hamaan’s. We think things are right on track–until they are not. Our world implodes around us and we shake our heads in disbelief. Funny thing is that we should not be surprised. We do not do God well. We neither have the omnicience, omnipotence or the omnipresence to pull it off. God is God, and as such, can see and plan the ultimate outcomes. We can only see what limited things that are before us. That is why we must walk by faith and allow God to do what he is equipped to do–lead us. If we will, we will be surprised by the amazing journey we have traversed; and will see God’s hand directing us to a full and meaningful life.
We must trust Him and follow him closely. Then like Mordechi–He will make sure we are honored before our most dreaded emenies.
God Bless You
“Go at once,” the king commanded Haman. “Get the robe and the horse and do just as you have suggested for Mordecai the Jew, who sits at the king’s gate. Do not neglect anything you have recommended.”
11 So Haman got the robe and the horse. He robed Mordecai, and led him on horseback through the city streets, proclaiming before him, “This is what is done for the man the king delights to honor!”
12 Afterward Mordecai returned to the king’s gate. But Haman rushed home, with his head covered in grief, 13 and told Zeresh his wife and all his friends everything that had happened to him.
His advisers and his wife Zeresh said to him, “Since Mordecai, before whom your downfall has started, is of Jewish origin, you cannot stand against him—you will surely come to ruin!” 14 While they were still talking with him, the king’s eunuchs arrived and hurried Haman away to the banquet Esther had prepared.
