“Haman was furious when he saw that Mordekhai was not kneeling and bowing down to him.”
Esther 3:5 CJB
Again we see similar things in scripture that we can relate to today! How? The world wants us to bow down or take a knee to things that are not of the LORD. We should only be bowing down to the LORD!
“Still, I will spare seven thousand in Israel, every knee that hasn’t bent down before Ba’al and every mouth that has not kissed him.”
1 Kings 19:18 CJB
How amazing to know when we don’t bow down to the world, that the LORD will not only spare us, but will give us life everlasting!
“Look to Me, and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God; there is no other. In the name of Myself I have sworn, from My mouth has rightly gone out, a word that will not return-that to Me every knee will bow and every tongue will swear.”
Isaiah 45:22-23 CJB also: Romans 14:11 and Philippians 2:10-11
Today, like Mordekhai we need to take a stand for Jesus and not take a knee to anything else, no matter how much pressure the world puts on us! We all need to stand up for the LORD, knowing everyone everywhere will eventually bow to Him!
May our day be blessed to take a stand for Him!
