No Diversion

Scripture Reading: Esther 6: 1-14


“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.”
(Esther 6: 3)

In Esther 2 vs. 21-23, Mordecai exposed the evil plot of the king’s gatekeepers; those gatekeepers (Bigthana and Teresh) were both hung on a tree, and the matter was written in the book of the chronicles before the king. By Esther 3 vs. 1, the king honoured and elevated Haman above the rest of the princes. Mordecai did noble, only for Haman to be lifted. One man worked hard, but another man received the reward.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: you will not work hard and another man will enjoy the fruit of your labour. Your reward will not be given to another; your promotion will not be diverted; the results from your efforts will not be given to another man; what is yours will not be diverted; your hardwork will not be a platform for another man to rise in your place; you will not work hard and someone else will take your reward.

Haman was an enemy of the Jews; so Mordecai made an effort, and the reward was given to his enemy. Hear me as I hear the Lord: every enemy of your destiny that wants to reap your reward, let the fire of God silence them. Let the fire of God come against any enemy of your destiny who wants to reap the fruit of your labour; any enemy who wants to divert your results, let the fire of God answer them and keep them away.

The honour that should have gone to Mordecai was given to Haman, for inexplicable reasons. What Mordecai rightly earned was given to someone who earned nothing. Hear me as I hear the Lord: the honour that is meant for you will not be given to another; every demonic influence that wants to deny you of your reward and honour, let the Lord roll it away.

You will reap the fruit of your labour; you will see the fruit of your travail and be satisfied. You will receive every reward you have labored for.


My reward will not be diverted; my honour will not be given to another, in Jesus’ name!
