Where God Rules

“He sent dispatches…proclaiming in each people’s tongue that every man should be ruler over his own household” Esther 1:22.

In the time of Esther, dispatchers were messengers sent by the head of the kingdom. It was a tag team means of communication as one messenger on a horse would hook up with a second messenger. They were chosen based on the ability to speak the language of their specific audience. This morning as I am considering this mode of communication I cannot help but to think of the sneaky ways Satan bombards us with his messages.

He sends people into our lives who can tempt us to think the way of the flesh instead of the spirit. He sees how we respond to temptation so it isn’t difficult for him to speak our language, and worm his way into our own little kingdoms. We build our lives much like we build our homes, surrounding ourselves with things that are important to us. We become rulers over the things with which God has blessed us, but convinced that we have built our own household. Satan will try to convince us that we are in control of our lives, and have the right and entitlement to operate in whatever manner we wish.

When we build our spiritual homes with God being the head of our household, we have a watchman at the door. Satan and his messengers are uninvited trespassers in the household where God rules. We have but one Messenger who proclaims everything we need to know in the unique language of every heart– the Holy Spirit.
