Then the king said to Haman, Hurry; take the robes and the horse, as you have said, and do so to Mordecai the Jew, who sits at the king’s gate. Leave out nothing that you have mentioned. Esther 6:10 ESV
Haman the Agagite, who was second in command to the king in the Persian empire hated Mordecai the Jew because he would not bow down to him. Haman went into the courtyard one morning to ask the king to hang Mordecai and instead the king asked him: What should be done for the man the king delights to honor?
Haman could not imagine anyone being honored but himself and came up with an elaborate plan of dressing the man in the king’s robe, setting him on the king’s horse and having the highest noble lead him through the streets proclaiming: This is the man the king delights to honor! When he completed his speech the king told him to go and do everything that he said for Mordecai, whom he hated. Leave nothing out!
God can turn what was meant to harm you around, and make it exalt you. What was meant for evil can work out for your good. Do not fear what others have devised against you, for we have a King that decides what actually happens to us.
Yours in Christ,
