We will reap what we plant
Harbona, said: – Near the house of Haman's a force of about twenty meters high that he had built to hang Mordecai, the man who saved the life of the Lord. – Hang Haman on it! – Ordered the king. – So they hanged Haman on the gallows he had built to hang Mordecai. And so the king's anger subsided. – Ester 7: 9 to 10
Be not deceived; God is not mocked; for whatever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. – Galatians 6: 7 to 8
By prejudice, pride, selfishness and vanity Haman ended up being hanged on the same gallows he had commanded to do to hang Mordecai, the servant of God.
Haman planted hatred, pride, vanity, selfishness, persecution and death. He received in his own flesh all the bad that he had wanted to Mordecai.
We are often harassed and tempted by the devil act this or that way. In these attacks the evil one suggests that we think negatively, we wish ill of someone or have attitudes that are not in accordance with the commandments of God.
Whenever we identify this type of harassment should immediately, with our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, struggle not to listen, let alone falling into these traps that the enemy is to play in sin. We must always resist the harassment of the devil. It guides us as the Word of God:
Submit yourselves therefore to God; Resist the devil and he will flee from you. James 4: 7
We should not deceive us. No one is free from being tried and attacked by the enemy of God. Who does not seek to maintain a close contact with the Lord Jesus Christ and his word are people who are more likely to fall into the traps that evil never tires of putting in our lives, especially with regard to pride, selfishness and vanity.
Our heart is corrupt and deceptive. Unfortunately, it is always inclined more to the practice of sin than the things of God. If we do not move closer the virtues of our Lord Jesus Christ will always be subject to fall into the enemy's clutches. Our greatest protection is always, and always will be, our faith and our daily communion with God, the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit of God. Such a relationship should be experienced in both the daily reading of his powerful Word, as well as through prayer.
How should we act when we notice that we are being targeted in a negative situation or when we are weak in faith and holiness. What we have to do is pray, cry and turn everything over to the Lord Jesus. It is he who has the power to free us and protect us from all the attacks of the evil one.
A big hug and be with God
