The day arrived for Satan to challenge God’s plan of resistance for His people. It did not matter to the enemy that God’s people could fight back, but it mattered enough to God’s people who fought back and prevailed.
God, having used Mordecai and Esther to remove Haman, the central figure in attempts to annihilate the Jews, now uses the duo again to enact counter measures to ensure that his plans are not implemented still.
It is the day of queen Esther’s second banquet where she reveals to her husband the king, that it is Haman who has planned to kill and plunder all the Jewish people. Her revelation will lead to Haman’s execution.
The wicked plans of Haman begin to unravel by Gods sovereign work, an unmistakable work. Not only does Haman’s plan to kill Mordecai fail, but Haman is ordered to parade Mordecai as a man honored by the king.
Haman just knew what was going to happen, the King knew nothing of what was happening, and the Jews were afraid of what might happen, though it never happened. Such is God’s Sovereignty over uncertainty.
