SHOW NOTES: The book of Esther is complicated – filled with twists and turns, intrigue, plays for power in the palace including assassination plots! One night King Ahasuerus is unable to sleep and he calls for his attendants to read the court history book to him – it’s a day-to-day journal. The king learns Mordecai uncovered a plot by two eunuchs to murder him.
He’s troubled and asks, “Was this man ever honored?” When the king learns that Haman is in the palace, he seeks his advice. Haman presents his suggestions on how to best honor the man whom the king delights to honor in an eloquent manner. However, what follows is a shocking directive that takes everyone, especially Haman, by surprise!
Honor and blessing come from the hand of God – according to His plan and purpose and, in His time.
“For You bless the righteous, O Lord; You cover him with favor as with a shield.” (Psalm 5:12)
