7 Days Prayer and fasting #Day 5

Esther 8:1-12

On that day did the king Ahasuerus give the house of Haman the Jews' enemy unto Esther the queen. And Mordecai came before the king; for Esther had told what he was unto her.

2 And the king took off his ring, which he had taken from Haman, and gave it unto Mordecai. And Esther set Mordecai over the house of Haman.

3 And Esther spake yet again before the king, and fell down at his feet, and besought him with tears to put away the mischief of Haman the Agagite, and his device that he had devised against the Jews.

4 Then the king held out the golden sceptre toward Esther. So Esther arose, and stood before the king,

5 And said, If it please the king, and if I have favour in his sight, and the thing seem right before the king, and I be pleasing in his eyes, let it be written to reverse the letters devised by Haman the son of Hammedatha the Agagite, which he wrote to destroy the Jews which are in all the king's provinces:

6 For how can I endure to see the evil that shall come unto my people? or how can I endure to see the destruction of my kindred?

7 Then the king Ahasuerus said unto Esther the queen and to Mordecai the Jew, Behold, I have given Esther the house of Haman, and him they have hanged upon the gallows, because he laid his hand upon the Jews.

8 Write ye also for the Jews, as it liketh you, in the king's name, and seal it with the king's ring: for the writing which is written in the king's name, and sealed with the king's ring, may no man reverse.

9 Then were the king's scribes called at that time in the third month, that is, the month Sivan, on the three and twentieth day thereof; and it was written according to all that Mordecai commanded unto the Jews, and to the lieutenants, and the deputies and rulers of the provinces which are from India unto Ethiopia, an hundred twenty and seven provinces, unto every province according to the writing thereof, and unto every people after their language, and to the Jews according to their writing, and according to their language.

10 And he wrote in the king Ahasuerus' name, and sealed it with the king's ring, and sent letters by posts on horseback, and riders on mules, camels, and young dromedaries:

11 Wherein the king granted the Jews which were in every city to gather themselves together, and to stand for their life, to destroy, to slay and to cause to perish, all the power of the people and province that would assault them, both little ones and women, and to take the spoil of them for a prey,

12 Upon one day in all the provinces of king Ahasuerus, namely, upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar.

13 The copy of the writing for a commandment to be given in every province was published unto all people, and that the Jews should be ready against that day to avenge themselves on their enemies.

14 So the posts that rode upon mules and camels went out, being hastened and pressed on by the king's commandment. And the decree was given at Shushan the palace.

15 And Mordecai went out from the presence of the king in royal apparel of blue and white, and with a great crown of gold, and with a garment of fine linen and purple: and the city of Shushan rejoiced and was glad.

16 The Jews had light, and gladness, and joy, and honour.

17 And in every province, and in every city, whithersoever the king's commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy and gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.

Charge:

In the third chapter of Esther, Mordecai is literally covered in sackcloth and ashes.

He is mourning because his people, the Jews, face a decree of destruction.

Amazingly, only a few chapters later, the king promotes Mordecai to second-in-command in the kingdom.

And so, Mordecai walks out of the king’s presence, wearing the king’s signet ring, in stately royal garments, with a gold crown oh his head.

There are certain points to note in this book using Mordecai as a case study

1. Realize Your Voice is Powerful

One of the themes of the book of Esther is the power of speaking up—especially for justice, and to right wrongs.

We see this in Esther’s bold act of courage, as she petitions the king for her people.

Mordecai speaks up when he discovers a plot intended to harm the king. As a result, scribes write of his actions in the royal records. And God causes it to be brought to the king’s attention. (Est 3:21-23, 6:1-3)

By the time Esther presents Mordecai to the king, he already has a track record of excellence, loyalty, and leadership.


2. Be Aware that Persecution May Precede Promotion

Mordecai is a worshipper of God, and as a Jew, refuses to bow down to Haman, the king’s official. This causes Haman to fume—and he plots to destroy not only Mordecai but to take down all of the Jews with him. (Est 3:1-6)

As with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, Mordecai’s courageous stance draws persecution—but what the enemy means for evil, God is turning to good (Gen 50:20).

Our God can turn persecution into


3. 3. Receive Grace from God to Stand Firm

Mordecai’s story also tells us that in God’s sight, our character is important. The enemy Haman does all he can, to ruin Mordecai’s reputation and destroy his life. But God overturns those plans.

It’s a reminder that when pressure is coming against you, God’s power is working within you.

And persecution only serves to bring out the best in Mordecai’s life.


4. 4. Embrace the Power of God’s Favor

Favor is one of the great themes of the book of Esther. And the power of God’s favor which marks Esther’s rise to royalty is at work in Mordecai, too.

“He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the beggar from the ash heap, to set them among princes” (1 Sam 2:8)

Can God do that for you?

The answer is “yes” because being an overcomer and rising up is not only something God does through you.

Being an overcomer is who you are at the very core of your identity.

This is who you are in Christ (Rom 8:37, Eph 2:4-6).

This is a promotion that does not come through presumption. Or entitlement.

Jesus teaches his followers to take the low seat, and let God’s favor do the work of promotion (Luke 14:10).

Today God is about to promote you just like he promoted Mordecai in the name of Jesus as you pray
