Esther 7:7-10 – 7 Then the king arose in his wrath from the banquet of wine and went into the palace garden; but Haman stood before Queen Esther, pleading for his life, for he saw that evil was determined against him by the king. 8 When the king returned from the palace garden to the place of the banquet of wine, Haman had fallen across the couch where Esther was. Then the king said, “Will he also assault the queen while I am in the house?” As the word left the king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face. 9 Now Harbonah, one of the eunuchs, said to the king, “Look! The gallows, fifty cubits high, which Haman made for Mordecai, who spoke good on the king’s behalf, is standing at the house of Haman.” Then the king said, “Hang him on it!” 10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king’s wrath subsided.
As I was reading this passage, I was reminded of Genesis 50:20 which states, “20 But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive. ” Haman intended evil, the Lord intended good. Ultimately, it was the Lord’s will, not Haman’s, that won.
The Lord’s plan will ultimately will every time, all of the time. As you go through your trials and struggles, remember that. What may seem like evil is winning will ultimately turn into victory for the Lord “to save many people”.
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
