Our verse of reference in Esther 6 is:
“When Haman entered, the king asked him, “What should be done for the man the king delights to honor?”
Now Haman thought to himself, “Who is there that the king would rather honor than me?” ” (Esther 6:6 NIV).
Trust with home on God’s times
Book of memories. – King Ahasuerus, and the other kings of old, recorded in the “Book of Memories” momentous events of his reign. In the same way, God has a Book of Remembrance “in which are recorded the good deeds of” them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. ” Malachi 3:16 (VM). His words of faith, their acts of love, are registered in heaven. Nehemiah refers to this when he says: “Remember me, O my God, […] and wipe not out my good deeds that I have done for the house of my God!” Nehemiah 13:14 (VM). In the “book of remembrance” of God, every deed of righteousness is immortalized. Every temptation resisted, every sin up, every word of tender compassion, are faithfully appropriated and targeted every act of sacrifice, every suffering and sorrow endured for Christ’s sake. The psalmist says, “Thou tellest my wanderings: put my tears into thy bottle: are they not in your book?” Psalm 56:8. CS 473.
God acted at the right time. – When we follow the steps given by God to rise in rank to Mordecai, leads us to revere and worship Almighty. Ahasuerus could not sleep, not because of an illness, or special concerns. God led him to examine the events of the past as a way to review the most important events of his reign. God inspired him to ask what had been granted recognition by Mordecai act of preserving his life. Dear friend and friend, not to worry if our good deeds go unnoticed or do not receive word of gratitude. Hopefully TIMES OF GOD, He never forgets his faithful children.
God exalted Mordecai at the appropriate time. – As Haman went to the palace to ask the king’s death Mordecai. God in his providence stated time, exalted Mordecai, filling it with honor and respect. This biblical story, should strengthen to trust GOD TIMES. We do not despair because God does not act according to our schedule. Trust in God.
Lord and our God, we pray that you increase us the faith to trust in your providence. We give our lives so that as your time, do us justice and grant us salvation. By Jesus, amen.
