Esther 6:1 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.
The king couldn’t sleep. Unable to sleep he called for one of his men to read to him out of the books that recorded each day’s events in the kingdom. As they read the books, he heard about how Mordecai had helped him and realized that he had not be rewarded.
It might seem like a coincidence that he can’t sleep but God is actually at work in the affairs of men. He causes the king to realize what a friend he has in Mordecai. He is being prepared for the day he will need to hear from Esther and save the Jewish people.
God is working in the smallest details in our lives. He is keeping us awake sometimes to hear from Him. He is showing us what we need to see. We need to be more attentive and sensitive to His movings and dealings in our lives.
