OUTLINE: DCLM DAILY MANNA DEVOTIONAL 22ND FEBRUARY 2021 TODAY
Agents of the devil always seem to press on with their deadly agenda, with the goal of exterminating the chosen of the Lord. But they fail at the end of it all. Through the three days of fasting and prayer undertaken by Queen Esther, Mordecai and the Jews, God overturned the evil plot of Haman to destroy all the Jews in King Ahasuerus’ Empire. The Jews, through a counter decree, authorised by the king and written by Mordecai were given the right to self-defence.
In our text, we see Esther making a further request of the king for Haman’s ten sons to be hanged and to give the Jews an extra day to deal with their enemies in Shushan. The requests were granted. Many people live their lives as if there is no repercussion. “The curse of the LORD is in the house of the wicked” (Proverbs 3:33a). King Saul had killed the Gibeonites whom Joshua had spared and had sworn to keep alive.
Saul’s seven sons were hanged as a result of his action (Joshua 9:14,15; 2 Samuel 21:6-9). Also, Jehu was instructed by God to destroy the house of Ahab for all the wickedness he had perpetrated in Israel. The law of sowing and reaping applies to every action of men. “Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil… but glory, honour and peace to every man that worketh good…” (Romans 2:9,10).
Every believer must live with eternity in view by sowing seeds of kindness, love and mercy so that his posterity might profit thereby.
Thought For Today: You will certainly reap the fruits of every good or evil seed you sow.
Bible In One Year: LUKE 13 – 16
