Mordecai is Made Second in Command of Persia

Today I read Esther 10 where Mordecai is put as second in command of Persia.  He reminds me a lot of Joseph who was sold into Egypt.  After interpreting the dreams of the Pharaoh, Joseph was put in charge of all of Egypt except the Pharaoh himself.  Just like his ancestor, Mordecai was put in charge of all of Persia except for the king.  We are not told how much good Mordecai was able to do as Persia's second in command.  But I will wager that he did much good in the name of God for his fellow Jews.  By small and simple things the Lord brings about his purposes.  It is a wonderful thing to be an instrument in the hands of God, it is something I wish more people could experience.  Knowing that what you are doing is the Lord's work is a great feeling!  Until tomorrow.
