In the book of Esther, Mordecai was a servant at the King’s gate who was also the Uncle of Esther who raised her as his own daughter because she didn’t have parents.
When Esther became queen she never disclosed her Jewish origin as Mordecai warned her not to. Esther 2:1-18 After Esther became queen, the King promoted Haman who was an official in his court. Now the servants who served at the gate would bow to pay homage to Haman at the King’s command. But Mordecai did not bow like the other servants because he honoured God’s word which forbid him to bow to anyone other than God. Esther 3:1-6
This infuriated Haman who made the decision to not only destroy Mordecai but all the Jews because of their belief system. Haman built gallows on which to hang Mordecai but this plot backfired as God caused Mordecai to find favour with the King. The King used Haman to honour Mordecai when he was reminded of a good deed which Mordecai had done in the past which saved his life. Esther 6
Esther also found favour with the King and disclosed to the King her Jewish heritage. This was because Haman’s plot would also include her destruction along with the other Jews. The King’s anger burned against Haman and he commanded that he be hung on the gallows which he built to hang Mordecai. Esther 7
Following the deliverance of the Jews, Mordecai was promoted to a position which was second in command to the King. Esther 10:1-3 A plot which was meant to bring about Mordecai’s demise led to his elevation and promotion. Esther also gained much favour and was given the lands which belonged to Haman. Esther 8:1
The trial that you are currently facing has been devised to stand in the way of your God given destiny. The good news is that the Enemy cannot abort God’s plans for your life once you stay in his presence and live according to his will. Stay faithful to God and hold unto his promises. Pray, praise and stay in faith and watch God cause the plans of the enemy to backfire and lead to their own demise. No weapons formed against you will prosper and the trap meant for your downfall will bring about elevation and promotion. You are blessed and highly favoured and surely goodness and mercy will follow you daily.
