When Life Gets Real- Rolling green and yellow hills under a lightly clouded blue sky

When Life Gets Real

When Life Gets Real and we struggle through difficult situations, we need to continue looking to God…

Esther 6:1-10…
That night the king could not sleep; so he ordered the book of the chronicles, the record of his reign, to be brought in and read to him. 2It was found recorded there that Mordecai had exposed Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king’s officers who guarded the doorway, who had conspired to assassinate King Xerxes. 
3“What honor and recognition has Mordecai received for this?” the king asked. “Nothing has been done for him,” his attendants answered. 4The king said, “Who is in the court?” Now Haman had just entered the outer court of the palace to speak to the king about impaling Mordecai on the pole he had set up for him. 5His attendants answered, “Haman is standing in the court.” “Bring him in,” the king ordered.
When Haman entered, the king asked him, “What should be done for the man the king delights to honor?” Now Haman thought to himself, “Who is there that the king would rather honor than me?” 7So he answered the king, “For the man the king delights to honor, 8have them bring a royal robe the king has worn and a horse the king has ridden, one with a royal crest placed on its head. 9Then let the robe and horse be entrusted to one of the king’s most noble princes. Let them robe the man the king delights to honor, and lead him on the horse through the city streets, proclaiming before him, ‘This is what is done for the man the king delights to honor!’”
10“Go at once,” the king commanded Haman. “Get the robe and the horse and do just as you have suggested for Mordecai the Jew, who sits at the king’s gate. Do not neglect anything you have recommended.”

It may look like everything is collapsing down around us. When life gets real we may feel that we may be destroyed. Do not be disheartened, for God has control over time and all things. Nothing escapes His notice.

Our God is all-knowing and has everything prepared in His perfect timing- all for our good.
