The Wicked Will Not Win - November 16, 2021

Haman is the villain in the book of Esther. He lived inside a one-person world. Everyone else existed to bow down to him. Yet, his reign of terror came to an end in the dining hall of Xerxes.

The king asked Queen Esther what she desired. He’d asked this question before, and Esther had deferred. But now Esther said, “…grant me my life…And spare my people. For I and my people have been sold to be destroyed, killed and annihilated” (Esther 7:3-4). The king asked who had done such a thing. Esther replied, “Our enemy and foe is this wicked Haman” (Esther 7:6)! The guards hooded Haman’s head and took him into custody.

Our God is a just God. Nothing escapes him. No one escapes him. The wicked will not win.
