I am very excited as I write this because my Lord reigns.  I have realized when you surrender to your Lord and you rekindle your love for him, He will always speak to you in so many ways just like before or when he started with you.   I am excited because, when I came in the office in the morning, (22nd May 2013), I had issues that I had to sort out there out and I needed first to report and ask for permission to go out and take care of my errands.  Well, I missed out reading the Word as my usual when I come to the office, but I was in spirit because I was praying since I boarded the Matatu to the office. 

I arrived to the office and asked for permission to go out.  I was granted to go and attend to my issues.  But as I went out I was still interceding and I was enjoying my fellowship with my Lord even on the road.  I hope I was not shocking those who met with me because I was smiling aimlessly enjoying the fellowship I had with my Lord and I really enjoyed it as I walked by.  When I arrived where I was going, I had to stop the fellowship and embark seriously on my issues and somehow I was helped half way and went back to the office.  I could not stop interceding on my way back again and I felt in my spirit I need to read the word so that I crown it all when I reach the office.  Before I read the word I visited my face book page (social network) and met a servant of God who had said hi to me and I replied.  In my reply I asked him to share with me a word because I was thirsty to hear a word from the Lord.  He did not reply I guess he had not seen it, but as I went on scrolling my time line comments, I found my pastor had written this on his time line (wall).

(The most profound words in the book of Esther for me are in 6:2, 'that night, the king could not sleep'.

As the enemy Haman plotted to destroy Mordecai, God gave the king a bout of divinely inspired insomnia, which moved him to fondly remember how Mordecai had saved his life and determine to reward him. Enter Haman, with his deadly plan to frame Mordecai. To his horror, the king conscripted him there and then to run before Mordecai and honor him!

Lord, I pray that you will give important people insomnia on my behalf and on behalf of the mission you have called me to. I pray that you will frustrate ALL the enemy's plans against me and turn all evil intended against me around for my good today and in days to come. AMEN.)

As usual, I liked it and made my comment as this: - Amen! Also claim the same favour Pastor M. May the Lord bless you for sharing coz i have also tapped my blessing and claiming it in Jesus Name!

Immediately I did this I started praying and told God, “now that you have given me a word through my Pastor, let me read the entire Chapter 6 of the Book of Esther so that I hear more profoundly from you today”.  I embarked on reading Esther chapter 6.  It was so sweet to read and the Lord spoke to me.  I did not stop there I read up to Chapter 7 but before I finished reading I got a call that I had to attend to and guess what?, the Lord confirmed to me the word that someone did not have sleep just thinking of an issue that disturbed him and he had to contact me and make a follow up with me.  Something I had ignored about and thought it was a waste of time, but the Lord confirmed to me that he was involved in it so I should not ignore but take heed and take the instructions with immediate effect.  Well, after finishing with the phone, I called those I had to call on the same issue and I found a breakthrough pap.  I was overwhelmed on how my Lord works!  He is such a good Lord and very faithful.  After I finished all the dealings, as pertains the call I went back to the Bible and continued reading Esther 6 and 7.  I was really excited because the story was so sweet to read.  It answered most of my questions and things that I was having a problem with in the recent past. 

I was happy for what the Lord did to King Xerxes that night that he could not sleep.  I actually realized the verse that said the King could not sleep was Esther 6:1. (That night the king could not sleep ;)  Guess what? When the king did not sleep he decided instead of wasting his time thinking about things that do not add value he decided to ask for the book of Chronicles the record of his reign to be brought in and read to him.  Just imagine he found that Mordecai had done something good in the past that saved his life and he had never been rewarded.    

This excited me so much because it brought vivid some things in my life that I have done and wondered who will ever recognize them?  I realized that God keeps a record of everything that I do well and as much as I have not been rewarded, He has them in record and one day I will reap from my goodness.  I should never tire to do well/good or feel discouraged because I have been discouraged so much in this area.  Most of the time I am good to people but I end up getting so hurt. Ehe!  What else? Well, I will continue exciting you on my insight about this story and tell you, remember King Xerces did not know Mordecai in person.   But because of what was put in record sometime back, that he saved his life was kept in record for future reference. Heheheheh! this sounds so sweet for me.  Remember God knew what he was doing when Mordecai was not rewarded that time.  When I look at the story of Mordecai, I asked God why he couldn’t be rewarded that time when he did this good.  And the Lord reminded me that he had not finished with Mordecai and wanted to bless him at his own appointed time.  He had first to deal with him and his issues so that he can use him at his time which was in the future.  Remember God can be dealing with you in good and in bad.  When I look at Mordecai I do not think he was enjoying life where he was at the Kings gate.  So, meaning he was in his low moments, but was still waiting upon God.  Meaning that we should thank God when we are doing well and when we are not doing well.  I guess Mordecai used to pray and God heard is cry.  That is why God was doing all these behind the curtains since nobody knows what God is doing until we see the manifestation.  You might be going through storms, but even in the storm the Lord is working it out for you.  The storms will not finish you, but will prepare you for what God has in stall for you.  That is when you confirm, truly God was involved and his is faithful.  Most of the time you may wonder the way you have been doing these good all this time but no one has ever recognized you or even given you a pat on your back but you have been frustrated all along.  I will tell you, do not look at things in that line, but focus on God.  Let him deal with you as you seek him and when he shows up, He will rub all your tears.  Humiliation does not come with joy, but so much pain. But do not worry when you see yourself in that situation, know that God is preparing something big for you and he is just preparing it for you in your pain so that you surrender and submit to him because all glory and honour is usually His.  If he just grants it to you just like that without you enduring, you might think it was your making while it was His.  The pain is usually a way to show you that you are still under his mercies and you should never seek for help from anywhere else but from Him.  Remember He is a jealous God too and He needs you wholly!  I am not saying all blessing come with humiliation.  No!  What I am emphasizing here is that most of the time the blessing that comes after you have gone through a lot of pain, you are likely to remember them because they are usually answers to prayers during our pains and agony period.  But when we just get the blessing so easily, most of the time we take them for granted and you will find out that we rarely share that blessing.   This gives me a lot of hope in that the Lord is dealing with me in my pain and at the same time he has a lot in store for me and I should trust on him at all times.  Things might not go straight like am talking here, you will face so many tribulations but I am being encouraged that after the tribulations, I will be taken to my next level with my reward that was never awarded the time I thought it was to be. 

I am very happy to write this script because I have realized that the Lord has totally healed me and I should now wait for his blessings at his own time.  When the King read all what Mordecai had done, he asked, was this man ever rewarded for this good thing he did about me really?  This person needs to be rewarded and he had to call the person who was put in charge of Mordecai.  Guess what, that person was Haman who had just come from the King to tell him that the place to hang Mordecai was ready and he needed the next instructions.  Gosh! Remember God will use the same person who is humiliating you to lift you and also Glorify Himself.  We are not told what was the answer to from the King to Haman about hanging Mordecai, but I am amazed when the King was told Mordecai had never been awarded by the attendants, he felt he would reward this person and called Haman not knowing what was in the King’s mind, for him to recommend what someone who had done good would be awarded.  Haman rewarded this person thinking it was him that the king had in mind and guess what, he gave his best recommendation and he was shocked when the King told him to go and do exactly do that to Mordecai as a way of rewarding him.  He had to do that with a lot of pain and humiliation and that’s is why after he finished doing what the king ordered him to do to Mordecai he had to share it with his wife and his friends because it was very humiliating.  When God is dealing with you, he will not incorporate others but deal with you alone.  Their advice could not reach anywhere because he was picked very fast and taken to dine with and the King not knowing what was ahead of him.  God had heard Mordecai’s cry and was working it out through the King and Esther the queen.  

Let me tell you my dear brother and sister, do not worry at what the devil has been plotting against you.  Remember you are on Gods side and do not be shaken.  Serve your God where you are, with your issues knowing that he will work them out for you but never go out of his Will /Umbrella.  You better solve your issues while you are in Christ than when you are out there without Christ. Most of us that claim to love the Lord we fall many times, but because of his mercies he will always forgive us and give us another chance and bless us.  The most important thing is to accept Christ as your Personal Saviour and the rest will come in place as you continue growing in Him. Remember God knows you in and outside.  He knows when you will be down and when you will be up.  The thing here is that you are in his territory and he will never leave you nor forsake you.  When I read this two chapters I did not plan to read them today, nor did I know my Pastor would post on in his wall I read it.  But it has really ministered to my Heart and I am excited to share this story with you.  Esther was asked by the King what was her petition.  I guess, for the King to realize that Queen Esther had an issue and she would address it during the party, must have been a deep thing that the King had thought over and over about his queen and he had to usher her with her wishes because he loved her that much.  I also guess, Queen Esther had played her cards cool to be honoured by King with a dinner party.  This was very timely because God was in the whole idea to save Mordecai’s life.  Mordecai did not know what was happening behind the curtains but God was working miracle wonders for him through the King and the Queen.  And Queen Esther told the King, Esther 7:3  “if I have found favour with you, O king, and if it pleases your majesty, grant me my life-this is my petition.  And spare my people –this is my request.”  You can read the entire chapter but I am just excited after she brought her petition to the King, the King was mad and he could not believe what was going on with Haman.  It is important to note that, most of the time some people can be placed on high places and use those flat forms to hurt others and not to bless.  The King could not imagine all what Haman was doing or even if he knew he had to listen to those he believed and trusted in order to take action.  In this case he believed what Esther told him and he also used the book of Chronicles to grant justice.    Actually I guess when he went back to the palace he realized no wonder Haman was doing this and that, no wonder he wanted Mordecai hanged, you mean he is this kind of a person?  And to make the matters worse when he came back and found him clinging over the queen as he was pleading with her for his life, the king mistook that still to molesting the queen in his eyes and got angrier and ordered him to be hanged on the same Gallow that he wanted Mordecai to be hanged. 
My friend, this story has really encouraged me so much.    You may not be going through what Mordecai and his people were going through, but we all have issues and we wonder day in day out what is all this?   I will encourage you and tell you, do not worry God is in control. 

Earlier I had talked about a call I got immediately I was reading the word and the Lord answered my distress that disturbed me for some time.  This is about a close person to me who wanted to do something for my son and I wondered if this person really wanted to help me.  And if he wanted to help me, why was he not involving himself so that I see truly he is interested in helping my son.  I rebelled and told God, if this is from you Lord, show yourself real.  In the morning before I did anything, the thought had come and I was accusing the person in my thinking and I was saying he is not serious.  If he was serious he would do one or two things to address the issue about my son. Guess what, when I read the word about how the king did not sleep during that time of Mordecai and Esther, I guessed that, God did not also allow this person to sleep by engaging him to come up with a solution to convince me of what he was saying about my son, and also him confirming to me that all these is from god since he told me he was being ordered by God to do it and that is why he is doing it.  Immediately I woke up from my I ignorance and did all what I was meant to do and so far I have seen the breakthrough because all the people I was meant to call in relation to this issue have consented and now the plans are now underway!
We all have issues that bother us, but the best person to answer us is God through his Word.  You might not read the Bible the way with think Pastors do, but I will encourage you and tell you, reading the Word is not meant for pastors.  It is meant for all of us.  Pastors have been put there to be help us by guiding and Sheppard us.  I thank God I read what my pastor had written on his wall because the Lord has spoken to me so profound from what he shared and I also claimed the same favour and I can see truly it flowed to me.

What is your take?  God speaks in so many ways.  He can speak through his Word, his servants, environment, persons, e.t.c.  Can you be alert in the spirit so that he can minister to you?  May the Lord today open your eyes that you may see his wonderful things and enjoy the fruit of his fellowship.  Psalms 119:18  “Open my eyes that I may see wonderful things in your law”. Amen!
