Scripture Reading: Est 7:10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king’s wrath pacified.
Reflections: Haman is a high ranking official in the Persian kingdom. He had a strong aversion towards Mordecai, one of the captive Jews in the kingdom. He therefore planned to kill him and had the gallows prepared for that action. Gallows is a wooden structure for hanging criminals. He also planned to kill the rest of the Jews. All seemed to be set for the day of execution. But the Jews had fasted and prayed earlier on for divine intervention. Just before Haman could implement his evil plot, God moved in. He was exposed and interestingly made to take the place of Mordecai in the gallows. Not only was Mordecai delivered in this instance, but he had his enemy, Haman divinely judged. Like Mordecai, God will accompany your deliverance with judgment on your enemies. This is the judgment that will cause your enemies to experience the very evil they intended for you.
Prayer: Oh Lord, let me encounter the deliverance that is accompanied with the visitation of divine judgment on my enemies.
Confession: My feet is delivered from every evil while that of my enemies are directed into the very evil they carved.
