Afterward Mordecai returned to the king’s gate. But Haman rushed home, with his head covered in grief, 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!” Esther 6:12-13
As Haman was plotting the destruction of the Jewish people, the king had found out that Mordecai had once saved him from destruction. Mordecai had never been honored for that work. The king then had Haman honor Mordecai throughout the streets of the city. He was then told by his friends that his downfall had started and that there was nothing he could do about it because Mordecai was Jewish.
The world likes to feel that they are in absolute control of everything. With that mind-set, the world strives to destroy Christians. They will make rules that will make a Christian be a criminal if they continue in their belief.
As this happens at times, the believer may feel like the world is winning the battle. The pressure to give in to sin will be great.
However, the world has not read the end of the story. God has the final word.
Haman’s advisors and wife realized that with Mordecai being Jewish, he had a power that was greater and that Haman would lose in the end. As a believer, you have a power that is in you that is greater than the powers that are in this world. God has and will overcome those in the world.
The world may look like it is winning the battle right now, but God will win in the end. The downfall of Satan and this world started when Jesus rose up from the dead nearly two thousand years ago.
The future of this world is destruction, while your future, as a believer in Jesus, will be one of eternal life. As you stand strong and true to Jesus, you will overcome those in the world. The world may try to stop you and destroy you, but all they can do is destroy the body. God has your soul in His hands.
Trust Jesus today to keep you safe in the end.
I pray today that you will know Jesus as your savior; that you will not fear the attacks of this world; that you will not give in to sin; and that you will trust God for your salvation.
