After a time of praise and worship this morning, the word of the Lord came forth. I heard clearly that the Haman's were being exposed during this time. As the word began to spring forth, I found myself rejoicing for those who will be vindicated by God. It's really something to go through a trial at the hands of another only to find out that this same accuser would end up facing the same demise which had been so secretly set to attempt to destroy. There is one word of caution that goes along with this word and that is when you see your Haman exposed, don't taunt, ridicule or even make them feel bad; continue to walk in your integrity and operate as a child of the King would. Remember in all things that it is not the person that you see who is your real enemy, but it is the spirit operating within them.
May you find peace, encouragement and strength in the scripture passages below to move forward in the things of God.

Haman Hanged ( Read Esther 7)
1 So the king and Haman went to dine with Queen Esther, 2 and as they were drinking wine on that second day, the king again asked, “Queen Esther, what is your petition? It will be given you. What is your request? Even up to half the kingdom, it will be granted.”3 Then Queen Esther answered, “If I have found favor 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. 4 For I and my people have been sold for destruction and slaughter and annihilation. If we had merely been sold as male and female slaves, I would have kept quiet, because no such distress would justify disturbing the king.”5 King Xerxes asked Queen Esther, “Who is he? Where is the man who has dared to do such a thing?”6 Esther said, “The adversary and enemy is this vile Haman.”
Then Haman was terrified before the king and queen. 7 The king got up in a rage, left his wine and went out into the palace garden. But Haman, realizing that the king had already decided his fate, stayed behind to beg Queen Esther for his life.8 Just as the king returned from the palace garden to the banquet hall, Haman was falling on the couch where Esther was reclining.The king exclaimed, “Will he even molest the queen while she is with me in the house?”As soon as the word left the king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face. 9 Then Harbona, one of the eunuchs attending the king, said, “A gallows seventy-five feet high stands by Haman’s house. He had it made for Mordecai, who spoke up to help the king.”The king said, “Hang him on it!” 10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king’s fury subsided.
Prayer of Salvation
If after reading this devotional and you have a desire to know Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, please pray the following prayer:
I repent of all of my sins and right now I do confess that Jesus is the Son of God and that He died for the remission of my sins. I believe that Jesus died and was buried and rose again, and is now seated at the right hand of God in Heaven. I receive Him now as Lord of my life and I now commit to serve him for the rest of my days.
It’s in Jesus name I do pray, Amen
