And, the second point: surely there will be hope!
Our protection is our relationship with the Lord - to stand firm on the rock, and our rock is Jesus. Knowing you stand firm for what is right, there is hope for the hopeless.
Haman is sometimes like the Anti-christ here in this book, he's like Satan that wants to kill the Jews to rule the world. The Bible say's that worship God only, and Mordecai do the right thing. For us, God is the only one who will be worship. Make Him number one in your life.
We should relate ourselves to the Jews - that worship one God. The same thing to us that Jesus is the one we will worship. We will never be shaken if we stand for what is right.
Temptation's and pressure's to bow down to Idol's is our day after day struggle, just like here in Mordecai that they daily ask him why he didn't kneel for Haman. Satan enraged when people will not bow down to him just like Haman.
We will overcome our struggles in life if we let our Lord God help us by putting your faith in Him.
Jeremiah 26:10 When the officials of Judah heard about these things, they went up from the royal palace to the house of the LORD and took their places at the entrance of the New Gate of the LORD’s house.
God has a plan for us and will use us. In every trials, there's an opportunity for us to grow whether we like it or not, problems will always be present. This signet ring, the King will only have this in time of century.
Even if there is a plot to kill the Jews in 12th month (March) but since God is faithful to them their plan will not succeed. Agagite in the history is one of the enemy of the Jews.
It is really important to do what pleases God. All that is happening here in the book of Esther is because of their sin. If we harden our heart, and not listen to what God says. The reward (from God) will sometimes be delayed, but it will surely be given what you deserve.
