Haman gets mad at one Jew, Mordecai, and sets in motion a ruling to kill all the Jews. Sounds like a pattern that is repeated throughout history! Wow! Killing massive amounts of Jews would mean eliminating those trying to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. This is yet another attempt by Satan to thwart God’s purposes. Thwart is a great word. It means “to prevent someone from accomplishing something.” But can God’s purposes be thwarted?
I know that You can do all things,
This is a wonderful thing to know about God! Powerful forces are set against God and His purposes. But God’s will is going to be accomplished! He is Sovereign. This encourages me today. Look around! Circumstances may seem out of control. Remember, God is on His throne. He can’t be knocked off of it. He will accomplish all His purposes. Hallelujah!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
