Esther 2:21-23, 6:1-11, 8:1-2.
Imagine the father of the First Lady of a country serving as a gate man at the government house, how does that look like? Insensible, I guess. That’s exactly what happened to Mordecai, the foster father of queen Esther, wife of King Ahasuerus. Mordecai was a gateman at the government house before his adopted daughter Esther became the wife of the King, yet he remained a gateman even after Esther became queen, BUT WHY SHOULD MORDECAI REMAIN A GATEMAN WHEN HIS DAUGHTER IS NOW THE QUEEN? The Mystery of Platforms.
If it were me, would I still remain at the gate as a security man when my daughter is now the first lady? Never. The revelation of the mystery of platforms was the reason why Mordecai remained at the gate. The gate was Mordecai’s divine platform for entrance into the palace not Queen Esther. What God has purposed and prepared to take Mordecai into the palace was not the influence of Esther but the exposure of the plot to murder the King and it is only at the gates that Mordecai could see the plot.
If Mordecai had left the gates because he now has a daughter as the Queen, he would have walked out of his divine platform, many have walked out of divine platforms because they believe it doesn’t matchup with their status-social, financial, academic, e.t.c. We must be sensitive to dealings in the spirit so we won’t turn down divine platforms because of ignorance for WHAT WILL TAKE US TO THE PALACE CAN ONLY BE OBTAINED ON OUR PLATFORM. WHAT TOOK MORDECAI INTO THE PLACE OF HONOR WAS NOT THE INFLUENCE OF HIS ADOPTED DAUGHTER WHO IS THE QUEEN BUT THE SECRET PLOT TO KILL THE KING THAT HE EXPOSED.
Our platform is that place where God would have us fulfill a purpose for Him. The SSS’s, CIA’s, CID’s, and other expert security personnel of the King who are living within the palace could not expose the plot against the King’s life but a mere gateman did because he was rightly positioned on his divine platform, no wonder even Haman-the highest ranked official could not eliminate this gateman,
IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW IT LOOKS OR MAKES YOU FEEL, AS LONG AS IT IS YOUR DIVINE PLATFORM, IT WILL BRING YOU INTO GREATNESS. AS LONG AS YOU ARE USEFUL TO GOD AND REPRESENTING KINGDOM INTEREST IN THAT PLACE, DON’T DESERT IT FOR OTHER WORLDLY BENEFITS, STAY PUT, FOR THEREIN WOULD YOU OBTAIN YOUR QUALIFICATION INTO MANIFESTATION. DESPISE NOT THE LITTLE THINGS THAT GIVES YOU OPPORTUNITIES TO SERVE GOD AND FULFILL HIS PURPOSES-THEY ARE DIVINE PLATFORMS.
GLORY TO GOD.
