Hidden Treasures

Scripture Reading: Esther 6: 1-14


“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.” (Esther 6: 1-2)

When the book of records of the chronicles was read before the king, it was found that Mordecai had done something good in the past. The word ‘found’ as used in that scripture means ‘to discover unexpectedly’. So there was something good written for Mordecai, but it was not yet seen until that night when the king could not sleep. Something in Mordecai’s favour was hidden in the record of chronicles, and it was discovered unexpectedly.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: everything that is yours that has not been found or discovered, let it locate you now; every opportunity that is meant for you that is still hidden, let it locate you now; every treasure that has your name on it, I command it to be revealed to you now; let your eyes be opened to see what God has freely given you that is not yet in your possession; let your path cross with the path of your divine provision.

Mordecai had something written in his favour which had the potential to lift him higher, but alas, it was hidden and tucked away in a book of records that was only called forth because the king could not sleep. Hear me as I hear the Lord: everything that is yours that is covered, let the light of God shine on it now and cause it to be seen; everything that God has made available for your greatness that is hidden or missing, let it be found.

Mordecai could have been promoted earlier if what was written about him was seen on time, but it was seen after a long while. So what was written in his favour remained hidden while he suffered as a mere gatekeeper in the palace. Hear me as I hear the Lord: there shall be no more delay in the discovery of what is in your favour. The good news in your favour will not be delayed; the opportunities in your favour will not be released.

Today, every covering on what is yours is lifted. Your treasure shall be revealed without delays.


Everything that is mine that is covered, I uncover you now; locate me without delay, in Jesus’ name!
