Esther 8:11 Wherein the king granted the Jews which were in every city to gather themselves together, and to stand for their life, to destroy, to slay and to cause to perish, all the power of the people and province that would assault them, both little ones and women, and to take the spoil of them for a prey,
Through the gift of the Holy Ghost, God has given unto us unlimited power. If you have any doubts that this is true you need to look only as far as the acts of the apostles. What else would explain Peter raising Dorcas from the dead (Acts 9:36-43) and his shadow causing the sick lying in the streets to be healed (Acts 5:15-16)?
There are two ways in which the story of Esther and Mordecai is a representation of the unlimited power that God has given unto us. First, when the scribes sat down to write the letter needed to reverse the curse, Esther 8:9 tells us that what they wrote was what Mordecai told them to write. It was evident that Mordecai ruled over them. Mordecai being next to the King was given the authority to rule over everything and everyone else in the Kingdom. It is the same with us today, through the power of the Holy Ghost, we have the authority to rule over everything in our environment.
The second thing to note is that the King gave Mordecai his signet ring (Esther 8:2) to walk around with; it signified that he had unlimited power to do what the King would do. Being filled with the Holy Ghost is synonymous with us walking around with the signet ring of the King: and suggests that we today have unlimited power to carry out the will of the King of kings. Jesus confirms this in John 14:12 when he says “greater works than these will ye do”. The word “greater” used there was purposely undefined to communicate to us that once we are filled with the Holy Spirit and stay close to the King of Kings there is no limit to what you can do.
Life Application: Unlock the unlimited power that is within you by staying close to God and believe that there is no limit to what you can do once you are filled with the Holy Spirit.
Prayer: Lord, I believe that there is no limit to what I can do through you. May I walk in your will and walk with the authority that you have given. In Jesus name, amen.
