My dear Brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless everyone in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. The blessed word that God has given you for today is from the book of, Psalms 23:5, “You prepare a table before me, in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil. My cup runs over.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, from the above context we know that God wants to bless His children and so as prophesy He says, “All those who have despised or humiliated you will be punished by God. And in front of those who despised you, God will prepare a table and honour you. God will honour and anoint you also before them. Halleluiah.!
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, There was a man called Haman who opposed Mordecai, But God prepared a table for Mordecai before his enemy. King Ahasureus calls Haman and says, What shall be done for the man whom the king delights to honour? Now Haman thought in his heart that the king wanted to honor him as there was no better person beside him. And Haman answered the king saying, “For the man whom the king delights to honour let a royal, robe be brought which the king has worn, and a horse on which the king has ridden which has a royal, crest placed on its head. Then let the kings most noble princes put on the robe and ride him over the horse back through the city square, and proclaim before him. Thus shall it be done to the man whom the king delights.”
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, Haman thought that the king was going to mention his name and so he was very anxious, but the king said to Haman take the robe and the horse as you have suggested and do so for Mordecai, the Jew who sits within the kings gate. Leave nothing undone. Of all that you have spoken. This shows that God had prepared a table for Mordecai before his enemy Haman. Actually Haman had prepared a gallows to hang him. The Lord turned his plan upside down and humiliated him. Mordecai who sat outside the kings gate was brought inside the palace, and Haman was hanged on the gallows he had built to hang Mordecai. He was taken by his own craftiness. Even the people who came against the Jews and Mordecai, turned in favour of him.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters, How are you before the Lord ? Are you righteous? Do you make an effort to seek God every day, or are you running after the world? The Bible says, The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord. The righteous are never shaken. And so was Mordecai the Jew. Though so poor yet he was righteous before God, Therefore God honoured him in the kings palace. God will honour you also in the similar way if you remain true to Him. For an Honest man abounds with blessing. Surely the Lord God will help you. There may be a Haman, causing trouble in your life too. But the Lord will stand with you and strengthen you. Though poor and needy the Lord will think upon you. He will never fail you. For the Lord preserves the faithful, so be of good courage. Sanctify yourself today and the Lord will perform a miracle tomorrow. God Bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Thank you for teaching us not to be proud, but to be humble like Mordecai. Help us to be righteous. Teach us to seek God each day of our life. May God cause His face to shine on us and honour us.
