Change of Circumstance

Well, I finally got out of Isaiah (but I’m sure I will go back) 🙂

I was reading in Esther last night and was reminded about how God changed the circumstance that Mordecai was about to face (Esther 6:1-11). I was first introduced to this thought a year or so ago when I was doing Beth Moore’s study on Esther, but had forgotten about this passage.

Haman was plotting against Mordecai and was going to have him hanged. But God had other plans. Who but God could have caused King Ahasuerus to not be able to sleep? Who but God could have caused him to want to read (or have read to him) the “book of records…”? It was not a coincidence that the king was reminded of Mordecai, nor that it was that particular time that the king would choose to honor Mordecai for his good deed toward him. And isn’t it just like God to use the very one that is plotting against us to bring blessing into our lives?

When you are facing a trial, don’t give up. You never know who God is waking up to come to your rescue. Every circumstance can be changed. Just because we don’t see what is happening, doesn’t mean that God is not calling out the things that can change what we are going through.

Trust Him today, believe Him today. There is a King who does not sleep and works everything for good to those that love him and are called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28).

Father we thank You because You are the King who does not sleep. You always have our best interest at heart and will work to bless us even when others want to curse us. You are holy and You are Lord of all. We rest in Your presence today and give every circumstance and situation to You. Help us to trust You and believe that Your word is true and alive in our lives. In Jesus name, Amen.
