“On that night could not the king sleep, and he commanded to bring the book of records of the chronicles; and they were read before the king.” (Esther 6: 1)

After Mordecai raised Esther and she became queen; his status did not change. Mordecai remained a mere gatekeeper in the palace of Ahasuerus. He helped make royalty happen for Esther, but it was not yet happening to him. The fact that Esther had become queen did not change Mordechai’s status. Mordecai was so close to

power, yet so far from it. In our Focal Scripture, the process that led to Mordecai being honoured began. Without making a request, Mordecai was remembered and honoured with royalty.

What he made happen for Esther located him; the good he sowed into Esther’s life later became his reality; the impact he made on Esther later came back to him. Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: royalty is about to locate you.

Greatness is about to come to your doorsteps; God is about to put it in the heart of men to lift you higher; God is about to orchestrate a chain of events to cause a lifting in your life; God is about to trigger your lifting from unfamiliar quarters; God is about to make royalty and honour to locate you.

Mortdecai’s lifting was not a payback from Esther. What God is about to do for you, the hand of a man will not be in it. Get set: God will cause royalty to locate you from places you least expect.

The same God that caused royalty to locate Esther caused royalty to also locate Mordecai. The same God who caused someone around you to be lifted will cause royalty to locate you. Isaiah 62: 3 says: “Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the LORD and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.” Declare with Me: Royalty will locate me, in Jesus’ name!
