King Artaxerxes and Haman came to the banquet of Esther. The king was anxious to know what was on Esther's mind, so he asked her again what her request was. She answered him by explaining that someone had sold her and her people out and was going to have them slain. He immediately wanted to know who, and she outed Haman as the culprit of such a dastardly deed. The king flew into a rage and went into the garden to think. Upon his return, he found Haman begging for his life on the bed where Esther was sitting and accused him of trying to ravish her before having her slayed. Word got out, and they covered Haman's head!

And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who had spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman. Then the king said, Hang him thereon. So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then was the king's wrath pacified. Esther 7:9-10

Evil was destroyed in the same manner that was intended for God's people. They got to see the vengeance of God come to fruition. If you are dealing with an unfair situation, take heart. If you love and honor God with all your heart, you can count on Him coming to your rescue. You too will see the recompense of the wicked just as Esther, Mordecai, and the people of Israel witnessed. Wait for it; it will surely come!
