Esther 7:7 (NKJV) Then the king arose in his wrath from the banquet of wine and went into the palace garden; but Haman stood before Queen Esther, pleading for his life, for he saw that evil was determined against him by the king. 


Psalm 7:15-16 (NKJV) He made a pit and dug it out, and has fallen into the ditch which he made.  His trouble shall return upon his own head, and his violent dealing shall come down on his own crown.

Haman’s delusion was that he was in control, and because he hated the Jewish people, he was justified in killing them. After all, he had one of the highest positions, and there was no reason to think his plan would fail.

Esther 4:7-8 (NKJV) And Mordecai told him all that had happened to him, and the sum of money that Haman had promised to pay into the king’s treasuries to destroy the Jews.  He also gave him a copy of the written decree for their destruction, which was given at Shushan, that he might show it to Esther and explain it to her, and that he might command her to go in to the king to make supplication to him and plead before him for her people.

God will never allow the Jewish people to be destroyed. They are His treasured people, and their land belongs to God, and if you curse Israel, you will be cursed. If you Bless Israel, you will be Blessed. God is a covenant-keeping God; the scriptures tell us He never sleeps nor slumbers, and He will fight for Israel.

There are lots of sevens in today’s devotional.  It is the number that marks His rest and where He rules over all things created.

Declaration: I will pray for the peace of Jerusalem and Bless your people, Israel.
