Mordecai was very sensitive and vigilant on his duty and as such he had an awareness of what was going on around there.
Since the welfare of the king was his interest, he decided to uncover that plot.
His action was made known to the king and kept in the book of records of the chronicles of the kingdom, through the effort of Esther.
Can you see how someone that Mordecai raised paved way for his elevation?
The inclusion of that act of Mordecai might not have been recorded in that way if Esther was not there as queen.
Mordecai had no access to the king, but he raised someone that could stand in for him before the king.
This is part of the joy of raising people.
It could provide one with someone to link him to an opportunity which is literally difficult to enjoy.
It could provide one with a personality that could speak for him in certain places, organisations, institutions, thus facilitating his consideration into a position that would have been literally impossible for him to be appointed into.
You therefore, need to handle whoever God allows to come under you at a particular point in time with care, discipline and good intention.
Human beings are divine instrument unto elevation; but if you mishandle them, they would be instruments unto your abasement, reduction, rejection and humiliation.
What position do you occupy in the Church and the society in general?
How do you handle those that are brought before you for one thing or the other?
It is wisdom for you to do it with equity and in the fear of the Lord.
If you handle human beings like stones, then you’ll be converting your stepping stones into stumbling blocks.
How do you handle your members as a pastor?
How do you handle the cases that come before you as a legal practitioner?
As a teacher in any capacity, how do you handle your students, both males and females?
How do you handle your customers as a business man?
As a royal father, how do you handle that royal seat?
Are you not there to mess your community up as you spoil the land with bad customs and traditions?
As a Christian medical practitioner, how do you engage the gospel in that profession?
Can your patients know or hear about Jesus in that your career?
Remember that there are several ‘Esthers’ coming around you unknowingly.
Use your present position such that your ‘Esthers’ could speak for you in the coming days unto your next new level of elevation.
Use your present position to ‘apply’ for your next level through your unknown ‘Esthers’.
Use your present level to speak into the lives of those your ‘Esthers’ that could speak for you in the later days of your life.
After all the good things that Mordecai did both in the life of Esther and in the life of King Ahasuerus himself, the king decided to promote Haman, one of the descendants of Agag, a king of the Amalekites in the days of King Saul (1 Samuel 15).
Can you imagine the coincidence?
I think it is spiritually deliberate.
Saul had an opportunity of killing Agag as commanded by the Lord, but he failed to do so.
Later in history, Haman, a descendant of the same Agag arose.
He was promoted and after that promotion, he became the worst physical enemy of Mordecai, a descendant of Shimei, who was Saul’s kinsman.
The man Saul spared generated a descendant that fought against a descendant of his kinsman-so it was a battle of Saul’s versus Agag’s family.
God made it in such a way that before Mordecai could get to the limelight, that battle that Saul could not complete must be completed.
Whatever a man dodges or shies away from dealing with in his earlier days will become a stumbling block that will need to be conquered before his breakthrough and elevation would be realised.
What is the ‘Agag’ of your life?
Why are you shying away from it without taking deliberate steps in dealing with it decisively?
What have you done about that immorality you committed that resulted in abortion?
What about that secret child you have and you refused to tell your wife when you were in courtship?
How about the money you embezzled in your organization of which you came to the church to give fat tithe and offering?
You are busy sparing your ‘Agag’ that will later grow to frustrate your future fruitfulness and elevation.
Arise and kill your ‘Agag’ and your breakthrough and elevation will be realised to the glory of God.
Kill your Agag so that he wouldn’t generate and be repackaged as a ‘Haman’.
When Haman was promoted, evil was promoted.
Pride and arrogance was promoted when Haman was promoted.
It was very unfortunate to note that the land of Persia was then exposed to the promulgation of unjust and evil decrees through the promotion and exaltation of Haman.
Ill and discomfort for the people of God was at its peak when Haman was promoted.
But thank God that whatever is the devil’s intention over God’s intention concerning His children will not prosper.
The devil foresaw what would become of Mordecai and quickly promoted his agent.
But thank God that no one can outsmart Him.
There are occasions in one’s life that when God is about doing something very tangible and remarkable, He will decide to allow the increase and promotion of evil against him.
I don’t know the ‘Haman’ of your life, but let me boldly announce to you that he will not succeed over your destiny and elevation, in Jesus’ Name.
What is that situation in your life that is becoming bigger and bigger on a daily basis and trying to cut you short?
I pray for you that what it will take to overcome it will be granted unto you, in the Name of Jesus.
After Haman was promoted in the kingdom of Persia, he discovered how Mordecai could not bow for him as did the other people of the land.
He (Haman) then decided to destroy Mordecai and the entire Jews in that kingdom.
He became too resentful of Mordecai that according to him, the only solution to this resentment was to destroy both him and his people, the Jews.
He went ahead to convince the king into promulgating that decree that was issued for the total annihilation of the Jews.
When a man does not deal with certain things at the earlier stage of his life, it will wake up to destroy him or hinder him of his destiny along with other people who may be connected to him.
