STUDY: King Ahasuerus had asked his officials what had been done for the man who leaked the information of the plot to kill the king, and he was told that nothing had been done for such a man. The king ordered that such a man be clothed in royal apparel and that he rides gloriously on a horse. Haman thought he was the one to be so honoured. However, the king ordered him to do exactly the same to Mordecai; thus Haman was humiliated but Mordecai was honoured.
Usually, those who are ambitious and desperate about God’s honour don’t get it. “…promotion cometh neither from the east nor from the west, nor from the south, it comes from the Lord-He putted down one, and setteth up another (Ps. 75:6-7). Let us learn to depend on God to honour us, and not to push ourselves, like Haman, for self-honour.
TODAY’S PRAYER: Dear Lord, in your way and time, please honour me.
