There are bad things that happen to us that catches us by surprise! One of the reasons bad things could happen to us is our DISOBEDIENCE which was certainly the case with the EXILES in Medo-Persia who did not want to return to the PROMISED LAND.
As a review, we saw in Chapter three, the consequence of their disobedience as Haman hatched a plan for the extermination of the Jews. This would not have happened if they had returned to the land of promise, the land of Canaan
I. TRIPARTITE MOURNING
II. HATCHED PLAN OF DELIVERANCE
While everything was PURE CHAOS on the part of Mordecai, Esther and the Jews, HEAVEN was CALM for God is never taken by SURPRISE. God will always achieve His purposes of DELIVERANCE, DISCIPLINE, and DESTINY. The question is: Would you like to be part of God’s plan? Hopefully, just like Esther, we should be willing to make the ULTIMATE SACRIFICE for God to fulfill His purposes!
