God Will Come Through - Thursday, August 6th 2015
"Then the king said, "What honor or dignity has been bestowed on Mordecai for this?" And the king's servants who attended him said, "Nothing has been done for him."
In the book of Esther, Mordecai was in a hard place. He worked hard for the King and even helped save his life, yet because of one evil person, Mordecai's life was threatened. While this may have been the case, there was good news coming for Mordecai. In fact, the very man who would love to see Mordecai dead, would be the very man who the King would command to honor Mordecai with a parade.
Friend, we can be encouraged by this story. Maybe it looks like things aren't going well. You are worshipping God, serving, giving and still the pieces aren't coming together. But in a blink of a moment, the pieces will fall into place. Some of you may have been faithful in serving, giving, witnessing, praying, and you have been waiting. In an instant God will show you His plan. His plan is far more glorious than any we can come up with. Today, be encouraged that God sees all that you do for Him. While we may have to endure hardships in life, the good news is that in this life and in the next God promises joy for those who trust in Him. He is faithful. He will come through in the end.
Life Lesson: As believers, we may for a season go unappreciated, but we will not be unrewarded.
Thank You for Your faithfulness and for the promise that You will never leave me. Help me to trust in you. Increase my faith and fill me with Your Spirit so that I can live in great expectation of what You have in store for me. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Living to tell what He died to say,
