Made Right--On Time

Today's reading: Esther 7:7-8:17

By the conclusion of Esther's second meal with the king, Haman's evil plot to kill the Jews is fully exposed and swift justice is rendered against Haman by order of King Ahasuerus. Haman is hung from the very gallows his pride had caused him to build for the public execution of Mordecai. The events of this day and what follows are quite amazing, with wrongs being righted in a relatively short time. Under the direction of Mordecai, a new edict is written which turns the tables for the Jews. They are no longer the hunted but are now empowered to go on the offensive to protect and defend themselves and their families from anyone who intended to do them harm.

The events that play out in Esther 7-8, drove home for me how God is our righteous and just protector. I am thankful for this reminder because we can lose sight of this fact and start to question God's goodness when wrong or bad things that happen to us aren't righted in our desired time frame. Throughout the Bible we are repeatedly shown and told that God is a God of justice and that He will make things right--in His time.

What encouragement does God righting the sinful acts of Haman bring you today? How might this account help you the next time you find yourself waiting on God's timing? What are one or two things that help you stay positive and focused on God's goodness when you're in a season of waiting? Tami

It is encouraging that God makes right in His perfect timing!

Why should I not wait for the Lord, He sure is so patient and long suffering towards me!!

To remind myself that God is Sovereign, He is good all of the time! His thoughts are not my thoughts, they are the best.
