The Haman in our Lives

The Haman in Our Lives
When Haman saw that Mordecai did not bow or pay him homage, Haman was filled with wrath. But he disdained to lay hands on Mordecai alone, for they had told him of the people of Mordecai. Instead, Haman sought to destroy all the Jews who were throughout the whole kingdom of Ahasuerus—the people of Mordecai.—Esther 3: 5-6
Haman was an Agagite—a descendant of the Amalekites. God had ordered Saul to utterly destroy these Amalekites, but he disobeyed and allowed the king to live. As a result, the Amalekites continued to war against Israel.
In biblical typology, Haman is a type of the flesh, something God hates. Just as the Amalekites warred constantly against Israel, so too the flesh wars constantly against the Spirit. As the Amalekites attacked Israel at its weakest point, so the flesh will attack at your weakest point. Even as the Amalekites tried to keep Israel from coming into the Promised Land, so the flesh will try to hinder you from coming into victory and enjoying the promises of life in the Spirit.
God swore He would have war with Amalek from generation to generation, but He promised that one day the remembrance of Amalek would be utterly put away and Amalek would perish.
**One day the flesh will be put away forever.
We each have a Haman in our lives—that area of the flesh that has not yet been dealt with. Let us reckon it to be dead, crucified with Christ, that we might have His full victory as we walk in the Spirit.
Father, thank You for providing victory through Jesus Christ over the old nature. Help us press on in the Spirit, that we may know Your power over the flesh. Amen.
