"Puffed Up" Syndrome

Esther 6:6
6When Haman entered, the king asked him, "What should be done for the man the king delights to honor?" Now Haman thought to himself, "Who is there that the king would rather honor than me?"

Haman was the Agagite (direct descendant of King Agag of the Amalekites) who didn't tell the king upfront that he wanted to kill the Jews. He hid the identity of the people so he would receive full cooperation from King Xerxes take their wealth and kill them. King Xerxes wasn't able to sleep the previous night and the book of the chronicles used to put him to sleep recorded that Mordecai, Esther's cousin, had exposed a plot to kill King Xerxes. Haman considered Mordecai his arch enemy. He had already planned to hang Mordecai on a gallows that stood seventy-five feet high. Yes, that's some serious hatred. But for Haman, who was puffed up in his own imagination, thought he was the deal and he was indeed the one the king wanted to honor. The king had many in his court but out of all, Haman thought he was most important. Sounds like a case of narcissism. Have you ever known someone who thought and acted as though they were more important than anyone they knew? Do you know anyone who will stop at nothing to be the center of attention in every situation or every group setting? If they sense they are not the center of attention will they then begin to act out to make it so? Then this may be a case of the "puffed up" syndrome. One in which the Lord will aptly burst the bubble like he did with Haman. Haman was furious when he found out King Xerxes wanted to honor his arch enemy Mordecai. It was bad enough it wasn't him and he gave the king advice as though he would be the one honored so he actually had two bubbles burst by the Lord. In situations where the ego is so bruised, be careful. Haman planned to murder Mordecai for the same reason, his ego had been badly bruised. Those with puffed up syndrome actually have the most fragile egos. As the Lord brings them down they often decide it's the fault of others rather than taking responsibility for them thinking more highly of themselves then they ought. Haman met a most ugly fate. Hopefully, you are not this type of person.

Coming Out on Top

Matthew 26:59
59The chief priests and the whole Sanhedrin were looking for false evidence against Jesus so that they could put him to death.

The chief priests and Sanhedrin wanted so bad to kill Jesus they were willing to lie if necessary. Now they tried Jesus in their own court yet they planned to do so with false evidence. What is false? Merriam-Webster's Dictionary defines false as 1) not genuine: artificial 2) intentionally untrue 3)adjusted or made so as to deceive 4) tending to mislead: deceptive 5) not true 6)not faithful. In their own courts, they were planning to present evidence that was intentionally untrue and adjusted to deceive. Now the Word says they didn't find any evidence they could manipulate but false witnesses came forward. What did Jesus do that was so bad that people wanted to lie on him and deceive others in order to kill him? Simply put, Jesus told the truth of God, lived and demonstrated it and had a big following. Not to mention His words convicted the chief priests and Sanhedrin. In urban terms (Jesus called them out). Sometimes calling out the falsehood in which someone lives, walks and talks is simply done by being, doing and saying the opposite. Jesus was the opposite of everything they were and gave people hope while the chief priests and Sanhedrin were looking for the spotlight and those who would idolize them. Are you being and doing the opposite of those who walk in the world? Is the insecurity that plagues the lives of those around you causing them to present false evidence against you? Maybe you just need to change the company you keep. Is it causing false witnesses to come against you? Keep doing and being the opposite of the world and those who dare not to follow Christ. Continue to walk boldly for the Lord. Not that Jesus was laughing but He did and still does get the victory. When you walk in the ways of Jesus, no matter what artificial evidence is thrown at you, you will always come out on top.

Fruitful Again

Jeremiah 33:10-11a
10"This is what the Lord say: 'You say about this place, "It is a desolate waste, without men or animals." Yet in the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem that are deserted, inhabited by neither men nor animals, there will be heard once more 11the sounds of joy and gladness,

The prophet Jeremiah had already pronounced the judgement God had given to His people. The judgement was seventy years of captivity in Babylon. The impending judgement had been called over and over but it was about to arrive. The judgement came because of the sins Judah and Jerusalem had committed against God. The beautiful thing about our Heavenly Father is His anger doesn't last always. Jeremiah was also given the word from God that the judgement would be reversed at the time He appointed. Many would have declared Judah and Jerusalem desolate. Desolate is defined by Merriam-Webster's Dictionary as deserted, abandoned, forsaken, lonely, barren. God can give life to anything He chooses at the time He chooses. And God declared that after seventy years He would have cleansed the people and restored them to the land He promised and the land would be theirs again and they would be joyous. If you have suffered from the choices you made that were against God's ways, you can be restored. If you are in captivity, you can be set free. If you are in a place without life, know that God can bring to life anything He so chooses. His anger over your mistakes won't be always if you confess and repent. You can be fruitful again.
