Topic: God Has The Final Say
“The posts went out, being hastened by the king’s commandment, and the decree was given in Shushan the palace. And the king and Haman sat down to drink; but the city Shushan was perplexed.” – Esther 3:15 KJV
It is God that has the deciding vote, not man. Wipe your tears because the siege is over. You are not going to crash! You are going to land successfully. According to our text today, the dispatch riders went out in haste. Haman was in a hurry to accomplish his wickedness by the king’s decree. Thereafter, the king and Haman sat down. They plotted evil against God’s people and sat down to drink. Everything was sealed! That is how the devil functions. He wants to see us weep. He wants to see us lament. He wants to see us stranded. He takes delights in destroying what belongs to us.
But unknown to Haman, the hand of God was working underneath, just like He is working on your behalf now. You may not know when and you may not know how but He will do it again. When Haman finished drinking, God now began to unfold His own plans. God began to work and miracles started taking place. And by the time everything was said and done, Haman and his entire family were wiped out. Haman himself was hanged on that same gallows, that was prepared for the execution of Mordecai. Not only was he hanged, his position was given to Mordecai. It is a dangerous thing to strive with a child of God.
Beloved, you are a ‘dangerous cargo. You must begin to understand how much heaven values you. You are not ordinary. That is why God paid the supreme price on your behalf. ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.’ (John 3:16 NKJV)
You are so valuable to God that He had to give His life! Who is that ‘Haman’ that will stop your destiny from manifesting? You are unstoppable.
