JANUARY 2022 DAY 3
1 On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king.
2 And it was found written, that Mordecai had told of Bigthana and Teresh, two of the king’s chamberlains, the keepers of the door, who sought to lay
hand on the king Ahasuerus.
3 And the king said, What honour and dignity hath been done to Mordecai for this? Then said the king’s servants that ministered unto him, There is
nothing done for him.
4 And the king said, Who is in the court? Now Haman was come into the outward court of the king’s house, to speak unto the king to hang Mordecai
on the gallows that he had prepared for him.
5 And the king’s servants said unto him, Behold, Haman standeth in the court. And the king said, Let him come in.
6 So Haman came in. And the king said unto him, What shall be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour? Now Haman thought in his
heart, To whom would the king delight to do honour more than to myself?
7 And Haman answered the king, For the man whom the king delighteth to honour,
8 Let the royal apparel be brought which the king useth to wear, and the horse that the king rideth upon, and the crown royal which is set upon his
9 And let this apparel and horse be delivered to the hand of one of the king’s most noble princes, that they may array the man withal whom the king
delighteth to honour, and bring him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaim before him, Thus shall it be done to the man whom the
king delighteth to honour.
10 Then the king said to Haman, Make haste, and take the apparel and the horse, as thou hast said, and do even so to Mordecai the Jew, that sitteth at
the king’s gate: let nothing fail of all that thou hast spoken.
11 Then took Haman the apparel and the horse, and arrayed Mordecai, and brought him on horseback through the street of the city, and proclaimed
before him, Thus shall it be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honour.
12 And Mordecai came again to the king’s gate. But Haman hasted to his house mourning, and having his head covered.
13 And Haman told Zeresh his wife and all his friends every thing that had befallen him. Then said his wise men and Zeresh his wife unto him, If
Mordecai be of the seed of the Jews, before whom thou hast begun to fall, thou shalt not prevail against him, but shalt surely fall before him.
14 And while they were yet talking with him, came the king’s chamberlains, and hasted to bring Haman unto the banquet that Esther had prepared.
ODM 3 JANUARY 2022 MESSAGE
Never forget that it was A STORM, a crisis at SEA that produced one of the most wonderful and inspirational songs in all human history-AMAZING
GRACE, written by former slave master, ISAAC NEWTON! In this year 2022, learn from that! When your road looks rough and darkness seems to
cover the face of GOD, always remember that : “Life is at its best when everything has fallen out of place, and you decide that you’re going to fight to
get them right,not when everything is going your way and everyone is praising you” (Thisuri Wanniarachchi). GREAT THINGS ARE BORN OUT OF
GREAT STRUGGLES! “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times
of challenge and controversy”
(Martin Luther King ,JR.). God often uses battles/challenges/difficulties as his RAW MATERIAL TO TAKE US FROM THE PRISON TO THE
PALACE! God uses the “HAMAN” of this world (your hater) to catapult your star to your appointed, divine,exalted promised LAND! Ask Mordecai! It
is pain that leads to gain! So why are you depressed? Have you forgotten that HE IS THE GODTHAT CHANGETH NOT? The Holy Ghost is showing
me that 2022 is your year despite any storm! Hear Bob Riley: “Hard times don’t create heroes. It is during the hard times when the Hero within us is
revealed,” Then Lailah Gifty Akita penned: “Hard times lifts the seeking souls to higher spiritual realms.”catch this from the great Albert Einstein: “In
the middle of every difficulty lies opportunity. Did you get that? Stop pitying yourself or envying others! Your season will come! Close with Gail
Sheehy: “To be tested is good. The challenged life may be the best therapist” wow! Yes! The challenged life is the best therapist! Never ,ever,quit!
Something great is about to happen! Hold on, trust God and hold out!
