(4) If I die, I die... really brave words...but she meant it. She wasn't for anything ready to exchange her Almighty God for any piece of wood...Peter also wanted to do same,but cowed out...but Esther went through without backing off! Aye,she didn't throw tantrums not yelled for revenge,at this point. The only solution now is, following God all the way!

(5) God was moved by their total reliance on HIM...this was one of God's favourite FOOD...total and complete dependance on HIM! HE never accepts the number 2 position... it's either number 1, or forget it.
Thus,God was moved and yet lovingly,HE sent Haman a warning to back off,but either he was already deaf(the proverbial fly), or disdained the warning. God resurrected a forgotten issue,Ahasuerus the king couldn't sleep anymore...how can you hope for sleep,when you are waging a war against God's child? The king used Haman to honour Mordecai...an honour he has been long coveting and shrewdly working for,was given to a foreign slave... Mordecai!

(6)Yet, Mordecai came back to the gate. He didn't raise the dust...how can I clothed in the king's most costliest apparel,rode on the king's horse come back to sit at the gate again...I have to see the king on this! Mordecai was like dumb... humbly allowing God to play the game HIS OWN WAY! Today,we take God's place in our decision making process,and try to bend God to our will. Most of us pastors are always in a hurry,and only remember God when things go wrong! Mordecai would've non of that. He patiently waited and reaped a hundred fold.

(7)Zeresh, Haman's wife recognized God's warning sign to her husband...you will definitely fail fighting against a Jew. But she talked her husband into how to kill Mordecai, now she was the same one mocking... little did she know she will equally be swept away by the Lord's East Wind steadily gathering momentum!

Conclusively,I believe this account is s very popular one. Inspite of already being censored for death in and by their adversaries,God turned the story and rewrote it to glory,and HE took the Glory.

How did it come about,what led to the ultimate VICTORY? Because two just Jews living in an unjust society, refused to cave in to pressures from the family, community,work/business place and even the church of God.
They refused to be a part of the evil that has overtaken the world. They reminded themselves that they're different, God's peculiar children and by effect,stayed true to that God...even in the face of severe provocations!

Food For Thought; Many of us always want to set the rules...dictate the tune,has it favoured us yet? Many have boxed or thrown away their Bibles...has that helped us. It makes us to be more miserable.Joy is always found in standing on God's side... remember Joseph, Daniel and his three friends...the prophets and the apostles etc,God never ever abandoned them,but instead lifted them up above equals.

You can do it,I can do it. The moment you and I give the signal, the Lord Himself will take over. All HE wants from us is, for us to open the door and let Him into our hearts...our lives, it's not too late yet,Rev.3:20!

May God bless these words in our hearts and enable us to be doers,that these words may not stand against us on judgement day,in Christ Jesus Mighty Name,I pray,Amen!!!
