The other night I was in bed, trying to go to sleep.  I was tossing and turning.  Something was churning in my spirit and I couldn’t shake it.

I kept feeling like I needed to get out of bed and get my Bible.  That was all I knew.

After a few moments, I got up, got my Bible and sat back down in bed.  Although it hasn’t happened to me in a long time, I felt led to open my Bible and read wherever it opened.  Of all places, I opened my Bible to the book of Esther.  My eyes immediately fell on a scripture I had highlighted in times past.

Esther 8:8.

I read the scripture.  I re-read the scripture.  Over and over I read it.  I knew God was highlighting this scripture to me for a purpose.  However, I really didn’t know the purpose at that moment.

The next morning, I studied the scripture.  I looked up every word in the scripture.  I meditated on it for a while.  Then I shared it with a couple friends to see if they had any insight.  After a few days of studying and meditating, I felt that God gave me the answer.

It was simple really.  Do what the scripture says to do.

Esther 8:8 says; You yourselves write a decree concerning the Jews, as you please, in the king’s name, and seal it with the king’s signet ring; for whatever is written in the king’s name and sealed with the king’s signet ring no one can revoke.

I know we have talked about writing the vision lately.  But I am going to revisit it one more time.  Why?  Because I believe it is a timely word.

We are, right now, in the season where the King is in the field.  If we want to write out a decree concerning situations in our life, I believe the time is now.  I believe this is what God is saying through this scripture.

I love what He says… “YOU, yourself, write a decree, as you please.”

I believe God is saying to us to write out whatever we want, if it lines up with the word of God.  Then He will give it His stamp of approval.  Once He does that, it cannot be revoked.  Nothing can stop it.

The King and the word are one – if it agrees with the word of God – it already has His approval.

Friends, I believe we are in a pivotal time spiritually.  As for me, I am writing out my decrees, as I please, and backing it up with the word of God.  The King of Kings will approve them, and nothing can reverse or stop it.

How about you?  Have you ever written a decree that lines up with Gods word for your life?  How about for your children?  Or your business or ministry?  If not, now is the time.  Write your decree.  And do it now.  The King is in the field.

I belong to my beloved and He belongs to me; Song of Solomon 6:3
