Dear Beloved,THE KING COULD NOT SLEEP"That night the king could not sleep; so he ordered the book of the chronicles, the record of his reign, to be brought in and read to him" (Esther 6:1, NIV).Let me wish you this: "Your benefactor will not be able to sleep! He who will help you will not have rest!" Can you say Amen to it? Please do emphatically. Is this a good wish? Yes, it is. However, the wish has to be modified to remove any form of doubt from it. "Your benefactor will not be able to sleep or rest until he/she really helps you!" Amen and Amen.The above passage rekindles this wish in me. Mordecai was a Jewish captive in the city of Susa. He was one of the gatemen in the palace of King Xerxes of Persia. He had uncovered a conspiracy that two of the king's servants were planning against the king. This was recorded in the book of the annals in the presence of the king (see Esther 2:21-23). Nevertheless, he was not rewarded in anyway for this. When
Haman, an enemy of the Jews was planning to destroy the Jews because of Mordecai, the king could not sleep that night. The inability to sleep of the king made him to order his servants to bring the book of the record of his reign to him. As they were reading the records, the action of Mordecai was mentioned. The king inquired about the reward that Mordecai received for it. When he realized that he has not been rewarded, he ordered Haman to honor him accordingly. The inability to sleep of the king brought honor and recognition to Mordecai.There was a similar incidence when Samuel went to anoint one of the sons of Jesse as the next king of Israel. Jesse had forgotten David, his youngest son taking care of the sheep in the field. When Samuel got to know that there still remained one more son of Jesse, he said, "Send for him; WE WILL NOT SIT DOWN until he arrives" (1 Samuel 16:11, NIV). Samuel and others did not sit down until David came, and was anointed
king of Israel.Can you deduce anything from the two incidents? The benefactors could not rest until they actually did what they suppose to do. Your benefactors will not be able to rest until they have actually help you!If God is putting it in your mind to be a benefactor to any one, have you actually done what God wants you to do to that person? If you also want rest, you have to do it today! Remember, the king could not sleep¦.In His service,Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor).
