So Hathach went out to Mordecai in the city square in front of the King’s Gate. Mordecai told him everything that had happened as well as the exact amount of money Haman had promised to pay the royal treasury for the slaughter of the Jews. Esther 4:6-7 HCSB
It has been very fulfilling for me to reconnect through Face book with former students in my youth ministry groups. I have been inspired to see how God has worked in their lives and how they now have families and are making a difference in God’s kingdom. I am amazed how God has used me to impact the lives of others.
Hathach was a servant of the Persian emperor. Obviously, he was assigned to care for Queen Esther and was a key player in the salvation of the Jews. Queen Esther is the main character, but God used Hathach to deliver the message from Mordecai to Queen Esther. He was not afraid to be seen with Mordecai for he met openly with him in the city’s public square. Nor was he ashamed to be identified with the Jews.
Challenge: God can use you to make a difference in our world. Do not be afraid to take a stand and do what is right. Be bold as you openly take a stand for God and His people. God will bless you for being faithful in doing what is pleasing in his sight.
