WHAT A DAY MAY BRING FORTH
I memorized a verse of Scripture early in my
Christian ministry—Proverbs 27:1. Boast not thyself
of tomorrow, for thou knowest now what a day may bring
forth. That is a statement of truth in the Word of
God. I have seen illustrated over and over in my own
life through these years. It is a truth which is
powerfully illustrated in the life of Haman. The
last six words of that verse of Scripture are
fulfilled before our very eyes as we read this 6th
chapter of Esther. The first two verses of the
chapter are turning verses in this entire book. You

the palace of the king. Just a night in the life of a
man who holds the future of the Jewish people in his
hand. It's just a little thing. Does God work in
little things? God absolutely does. It is amazing
how God just takes little things, things that don't
seem to be very important and God is at work.
I think about the life of Moses, the great leader
of the children of Israel. When Moses was a little
baby, his mom put him in the ark of the bulrushes.
There in that ark, a daughter of Pharaoh saw the
little boy and the Bible s ...
