If you keep quiet at a time like this, deliverance and relief for the Jews will arise from some other place, but you and your relatives will die. Who knows if perhaps you were made queen for just such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14 NLT)

Beloved, Happy New Year to you. We made it! Glory be to God. So, what has this year got in stock for us? Well, last year someone shared a vision that someone had where the Lord showed them what their friend was going through and after showing them, the Lord said to them “so what are you going to do about it?” “Me? Why are you asking me?” Well, they eventually got over themselves and told the Lord what they would like to do about it and that was the end of the vision but a few days later, exactly what they saw about their friend happened and as they declared what they had told the Lord they wanted to do about it, their request was granted.

Beloved, 2017 is going to be that kind of year where those that the Lord has been preparing would rise up and walk in their authority to decree the change they want to see. After 12 months of preparation, Esther married the king and in our feature text, Mordecai challenged Esther and told her that she was put in position for a time like this and Esther had to rise up to the occasion.

She went straight to the king and… the king extended his gold scepter to Esther. She got to her feet and stood before the king. She said, “If it please the king and he regards me with favor and thinks this is right, and if he has any affection for me at all, let an order be written that cancels the bulletins authorizing the plan of Haman son of Hammedatha the Agagite to annihilate the Jews in all the king’s provinces. How can I stand to see this catastrophe wipe out my people? How can I bear to stand by and watch the massacre of my own relatives?” King Xerxes said to Queen Esther and Mordecai the Jew: “I’ve given Haman’s estate to Esther and he’s been hanged on the gallows because he attacked the Jews. So go ahead now and write whatever you decide on behalf of the Jews; then seal it with the signet ring.” (An order written in the king’s name and sealed with his signet ring is irrevocable.) (Esther 8:4-8 MSG)

Beloved, if this word is for you, the baby in your womb would leap. Some of you would find yourself in positions where you would stand as arbitrators, mediators and even policy changers etc. Don’t be afraid. You’ve been given keys… favour… authority…

Jesus told Peter… I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven. Whatever you forbid on earth will be forbidden in heaven, and whatever you permit on earth will be permitted in heaven.” (Matthew 16:19 NLT)

God bless you in Jesus Christ name
