Our God, The Game-changer!

Key Verse

“The Jews gathered themselves together in their cities throughout all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, to lay hand on such as sought their hurt: and no man could withstand them; for the fear of them fell upon all people” (Esther 9:2).

TEXT — Esther 9:1-11


The law of the Medes and Persians was such that no decree or statute to which the king appended his signature may be changed. And that was what forced King Darius against his personal wish to cast Daniel into the lions’ den. It was under such circumstances that Haman also wrote his decree with the king’s permission to exterminate all the Jews.
Our text informs us of how the Jews got the victory over their enemies who had gathered to destroy them in line with Haman’s decree. Since the decree was irreversible even by the king, he, through divine intervention, granted Mordecai permission to write and authorize the Jews to gather and defend themselves against their enemies on that appointed day. So, the Jews gathered themselves into formidable groups in all the provinces and were able to confront and destroy their enemies. In Shushan alone, five hundred persons were killed. Also, Haman’s ten sons were killed. All these were enhanced by Mordecai’s profile who had become great and famous among other leaders.
Our God is the game-changer. When Israel was by the Red Sea, it seemed as if the approaching Egyptian forces would swallow them up. But God opened the Red Sea for them to pass through. That same Red Sea drowned those Egyptian forces. After walking around the wall of Jericho for seven days, the wall collapsed for God’s people to possess the city. The stormy sea that terrified the disciples was calmed by a simple command from the Lord – “peace be still”. So, it does not matter what “mountain” it is before a child of God; our God, the game-changer, is always there for us. He turned the captivity of Zion (Psalm 126:1). He turned the captivity of Job (Job 42:10). And He will also turn around yours.

    The default voice/peach is super slow and dull for some persons.

    1. Amen. Our God is the Master of the Universe, the Seas, the Oceans, the waves, and the Earth. When He says “peace, be still, they all obey His voice”. He has already calmed the storm in Nigeria in Yeshua HaMashiach’s name🙏🏽
