Yesterday, we were in Esther chapter 5. I preached a two-part message on “A Game of Hangman.” In this chapter we see Haman, the Hitler of the Old Testament, building his own gallows. He thinks that he is going to destroy the entire Jewish race, but God has other plans. In the providence of God he is allowing things to happen that at first glance look devastating for Esther and the Jews, but God’s ways are not our ways. He has something amazing planned. Haman was playing a high-stakes game of Hangman. What he didn’t realize is you can’t beat God. God always wins.
