Esther 9:1 “Now came the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, the month of Adar, when the king’s law was about to be carried out. It was the day when those who hated the Jews hoped to get the rule over them. But their plan was turned around, and the Jews ruled over those who hated them.” (NLV)
This is something that God indicates in the Scriptures that it is His pleasure to do—to suddenly changing the fortunes of His people so that they are delivered from their oppressors/circumstances and are given the advantage over their enemies/circumstances. It’s not something we can do for ourselves; because we are powerless to do so. Rather, it is something that God does for His own glory and for our good.
One of the great lessons we learn about our great God from the book of Esther is that He is the God who can change helpless situations for us. He is able to suddenly, unexpectedly, and completely change a situation of oppression and utter despair into a situation of favor and overwhelming joy for His people. He is able to turn tables for our favor, and set us in positions of honor and authority. It’s a quality of our great God that should cause us to bow our heads in humble awe of Him, and to place our trust in His protection and grace.
