Divine Frustration For Your Enemies
“Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month of Adar, on the thirteenth day, the time came for the king’s command and his decree to be executed. On the day that the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred, in that the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them.”
Esther 9:1 NKJV
A decree had been written according to the command of Haman—to the king’s satraps, to the governors who were over each province, to the officials of all people, to every province, and to every people in their language, to destroy, to kill, and to annihilate all the Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, on the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which was the month of Adar, and to plunder their possessions. But the Bible says that on the day that the enemies of the Jews had hoped to overpower them, the opposite occurred, in that the Jews themselves overpowered those who hated them. Hallelujah!
Joseph said to his brothers, “But as for you, you meant evil against me; but God meant it for good.” They thought they were killing his dreams, not knowing that they ignited them!
Job 5:12 says that God frustrates the devices of the crafty, so that their hands cannot carry out their plans. Even when it seems that they have succeeded in actualizing their plans against you, that’s not the time to panic; if God permitted it know that He’s going to bring forth something beautiful out of it! Maybe they’ve told you that it will not be well with you; maybe they are expecting your downfall; maybe they are waiting for your marriage to fail; maybe they’re waiting for you to fall out of favour with someone important; or maybe they’re waiting for you to come back and beg them; I’ve got a word for you today: the opposite will occur, God will frustrate all evil plans against you, in the name of Jesus!
