I DON’T KNOW WHT “IT” IS, BUT WE ALL HAVE AN IT IN OUR LIVES
IT COULD BE OUR CAREER, FINANCES, MINISTRY, JOB, FIGHT
WHETHER YOU MAY BE WINNING OR LOSING, GOD WILL TURN IT AROUND IN YOUR FAVOR

INTRODUCTION

WE ARE NOT VICTIMS OF CIRCUMSTANCE AND NOTHING IN OUR LIVES HAPPENS BY COINCIDENCE
OUR STEPS HAVE BEEN ORDERED BY THE LORD
Proverbs 16:9 KJV 1900
A man’s heart deviseth his way: But the Lord directeth his steps.
Proverbs 19:2 KJV 1900
Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; And he that hasteth with his feet sinneth.
EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOUR STEPS HAVE BEEN ORDERED BY GOD
EVEN WHEN YOUR HEART IS SET UPON SOMETHING, GOD STILL KNOWS WHAT IS BEST FOR YOUR LIFE
AND THE LORD HAS A MIND THAT IS FOR YOU AND NOT AGAINST YOU
BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WE HAVE AN ENEMY THAT SEEKS TO DO US HARM
JOSEPH RECOGNIZED THIS PARADOX,
Genesis 50:20 KJV 1900
But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
AND WE FIND OURSELVES BEING TORN BETWEEN THE TWO
IF WE DO NOT RECOGNIZE THAT WE HAVE AN ENEMY, THEN WE CAN BLAME GOD FOR THINGS THAT THE ENEMY DOES
AND WE ASK, HOW COULD A LOVING GOD ALLOW US TO GO THROUGH THINGS THAT ALMOST DESTROY US
1 Peter 5:8 KJV 1900
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
YOUR ENEMY WANTS TO DESTROY YOU
BUT, AS BELIEVERS, WE HAVE A GOD THAT FIGHTS FOR US
AND EVEN GREATER NEWS IS THAT THE ENEMY IS NOT AN EQUAL OPPONENT
GOD IS GREATER
THAT’S WHY YOU CAN BE ASSURED THAT NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER
Proverbs 19:21 KJV 1900
There are many devices in a man’s heart; Nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.
REGARDLESS WHAT THE DEVIL OR MAN WANTS TO DO TO YOU, IT IS THE LORD’S PURPOSE THAT WILL PREVAIL IN LIFE
\EVEN IN THE BOOK OF JOB, WE SEE THE DEVIL GOING AROUND SEEING WHO HE CAN DESTROY
BUT, WE ALSO SEE THAT GOD PUTS A WALL OF PROTECTION AROUND THOSE WHOM HE LOVES
THE DEVIL EVEN HAS TO GET GOD’S PERMISSION TO ATTACK YOU
AND THE REASON THAT GOD ALLOWS A GREATER ATTACK IS BECAUSE HE KNOWS WHAT HE HAS PLACED INSIDE OF YOU AND THAT YOU CAN DEFEAT THE DEVIL EVERY TIME
FOR, GREATER IS HE THAT IS IN YOU THAN HE THAT IS IN THE WORLD
THAT’S WHY WE LABOR TO GET INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD
THE PRODIGAL SON WAS WEAK WHEN HE WAS IN THE PIG PEN, BUT WHEN HE MADE IT BACK TO THE FATHER, HE HAD ENOUGH
IN HIS PRESENCE THERE IS THE FULNESS OF JOY, AND AT HIS RIGHT HAND THEIR ARE PLEASURES FOREVERMORE
I’LL GIVE YOU 3 POINTS HOW GOD TURNS AROUND WHAT THE ENEMY SENDS TO DESTROY YOU

1. POSITIONED BY PROVIDENCE

ALTHOUGH GOD IS NOT MENTIONED ONCE IN THE BOOK OF ESTHER, WE CAN SEE HEIS PROVISION THROUGH SYMBOLISM
THE KING WAS HAVING A CELEBRATION AND ALL OF THE BIG PEOPLE WERE THERE
AND ON THE SEVENTH DAY WHEN THE KING WAS MERRY WITH WINE, HE CALLED FOR HIS QUEEN BUT HIS QUEEN WAS DISOBEDIENT ANDF REBELLIOUS
WE TALKED ABOUT LST WEEK HOW DISOBEDIENCE CAN CAUSE YOU TO LOSE YOUR POSITION IN THE KINGDOM, UNTIL THERE IS REPENTANCE
HOWEVER, THERE WAS REPENTANCE ON THE PART OF THE QUEEN, SO THE QUEEN LOST HER POSITION
SOMEONE’S MISBEHAVIOR COULD BE MAKING ROOM FOR YOU RIGHT NOW
WHETHER THEY ARE A BELIEVER OR AN UNBELIEVER, GOD IS MAKING ROOM FOR YOUR DESTINY RIGHT NOW
YOU DON’T HAVE TO WONDER HOW OR WHY, THERE IS ROOM BEING MADE FOR YOU RIGHT NOW
THERE WAS A WEALTHY WOMAN WHO LIVED IN SHUNEM AND SHE WOULD MAKE FOOD FOR ELISHA WHENEVER HE PASSED BY
SHE UNDERSTOOD THAT THIS WAS A HOLY MAN OF GOD
THUS, HER AND HER HUSBAND MADE A ROOM FOR HIM AND PROVIDED A BED, CHAIR, TABLE, AND A LAMP, SO HE WOULD HAVE A PLACE TO STAY EVERYTIME THAT HE PASED BY
ELISHA WAS SO THANKFUL THAT HE TOLD HIS SERVANT TO FIND OUT WHAT SHE WANTED IN RETURN
HOWEVER, SHE DID NOT WANT ANYTHING
BUT, GEHAZI NOTICED THAT SHE DIDN’T HAVE A SON
SO ELISHA PROPHESIED THAT THEY WOULD HAVE A SON ABOUT THE SAME TIME THE FOLLOWING YEAR
AND IT HAPPENED JUST AS THE PROPHET SAID
WHEN YOU MAKE ROOM FOR GOD, GOD MAKES ROOM FOR YOUR DREAM
THEY HAD MADE ROOM FOR GOD THROUGH THE BUILDING OF ELISHA A ROOM, SO GOD MADE ROOM FOR HER DREAM
AND IT HAD COME TO PASS THAT THE KING’S ANGER STOPPED, HE WANTED ANOTHER QUEEN
Psalm 30:5 KJV 1900
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
\
Psalm 30:3 KJV 1900
O Lord, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: Thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.
YOU MAY HAVE FELT HIS ANGER IN THE PAST, BUT HIS FAVOR IS FOR LIFE
AND THE LORD TOLD ME TO TELL YOU THAT FAVOR IS ON ITS WAY
FAVOR FOR YOUR DREAM, VISION, HOPE, PASSION, WHAT YOU HAVE KEPT SECRET IN YOUR HEART
HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT FOR WHAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY, BUT HIS FAVOR IS FOR LIFE
STOP WONDERING WHY THINGS ARE NOT HAPPENING
YOU HAVE TO PREPARE FOR THE FAVOR THAT YOU WANT THE LORD TO PLACE ON YOUR LIFE
FAVOR WAS DECLARED THROUGHOUT HIS KINGDOM, AND HIS CHIEF ENEUCH WAS TO PREPARE THE WOMAN
CHRIST, OUR KING IS DECLARING FAVOR THROUGHOUT HIS KINGDOM
NOW, IT IS TIME TO LET HIS SPIRIT PREPARE YOU TO WALK IN THIS FAVOR
Esther 2:9 ESV
And the young woman pleased him and won his favor. And he quickly provided her with her cosmetics and her portion of food, and with seven chosen young women from the king’s palace, and advanced her and her young women to the best place in the harem.
AND ESTER STARTED PREPARING
YOU CANNOT GET INTO THE RIGHT POSITION WITHOUT PREPARATION
6 MONTHS WITH THE OIL OF MYRRH
MYRHH WAS USED FOR A NUMBER OF REASONS
IT WAS ONE OF THE TREASURES WHICH THE WISE MEN BROUGHT TO CHRIST WHEN HE WAS BORN
SINCE, CHRIST NEEDED IT FOR HIS POSITION, ESTHER DEFINITELY USE IT FOR HER POSITION
IT WAS USED IN THE SACRED ANOINTING OIL, AS A PERFUME, IN BEUTY TREATMENTS
BUT, ONE THING THT I FOUND OUT ABOUT MYRRH IS THT THE REAL FRAGRANCE DOESN’T COMEOUT UNTIL IT IS BURNED
THIS SIGNIFIED THE KILLING OF THE FLESH, 6 MONTHS IN THE KILLING OF THE FLESH AND THEN 6 MONTHS IN OINTMENTS FOR THE PERFUME AND BEUTIFYING OF WOMEN
JUST THINK ABOUT IT, 1 YEAR OF PREPARATION FOR ONE NIGHT
BUT, THAT IS HOW IT WAS FOR CHRIST AS WELL 33 YEARS FOR 3 YEARS
WHEN GOD OPENS UP THE POSITION OF DESTINY FOR YOU, IT TAKES YOUR BEST PREPARATION
PREPARE FOR YOUR BUSINESS, MINISTRY, CAREER, GOD HAS CALLED YOU TO DO
SHE COMPLETED HER PREPARATION, BUT THERE WAS ONE MORE EVENT THAT WOU,D TAKE PLACE BEFORE SHE WENT INTO THE KING
THE WOMAN WAS ALLOWED TO TAKE IN WHATEVER SHE DESIRED FOR THAT NIGHT
ONE WOMAN CHOSE THIS, AND ONE THAT AND ONE THIS AND ONE THAT
BUT, ESTHER ASKER THE KING’S EUNUCH FOR WHATEVER HE ADVISED
LOOK AT THE SUBMISSION
SHE COULD HAVE TAKEN THE BEST JEWEL, THE MOST GLAMOROUS GOLD, OR THE BEST OUTFIT
BUT, ESTHER TRUSTED THE EUNUCH
WE NEED TO TRUST THE HOLY SPIRIT FOR WHATEVER, HE WANTS US TO DO
TO BE CARNALLY MINDED IS DEATH, BUT TO BE SPIRITUALLY MINDED IS LIFE AND PEACE
YOU HAVE TO SUBMIT TO THOSE ABOVE YOU, ESPECIALLY THE ONE THAT KNOWS THE KING BEST
AND THROUGH THE SUBMISSION CAME THE FAVOR IN THE EYES OF ALL WHO SAW HER
NOBODY WANTS TO SUBMIT TO ANYONE ANYMORE BUT THERE IS PROTOCOL IN THE PALACE
AND IF YOU WANT TO OBTAIN FAVOR, THEN YOU HAVE TO SUBMIT TO THE PROTOCOL AND ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO KNOW THE PROTOCOL
YOU MAY BE AN UP AND COMING TALENT BUT YOU STILL NEED TO SUBMIT
IT WAS CHRIST’S SUBMISSION IN THE GARDEN THAT BROUGHT HIM UP OUT OF THE GRAVE
BUT, ONCE YOU ARE POSITIONED BY PROVISION, YOU HAVE TO HAVE FAITH IN THE FIRE

2. FAITH IN THE FIRE

ONCE YOU RECEIVE YOUR POSITION, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO DEMONSTRATE FAITH IN THE FIRE, BECAUSE EVERYONE IS NOT GOING TO LIKE YOU
PEOPLE ARE JEALOUS UPON WHO THE LORD PLACES FAVOR
JOSEPH’S BROTHERS WERE SO JEALOUS THAT THEY THREW HIM INTO A PIT AND ACTED LIKE HE WAS DEAD BY SELLING HIM TO THE ISHMAELITES WHO SOLD HIM IN EGYPT
PEOPLE HATE YOUR FAVOR AND THEY ATTEMPT TO BURRY IT WHERE NO ONE CAN SEE IT
THEY WILL TRY TO PLACE YOUR FAVOR IN THE WORSE POSSIBLE PLACE BUT GOD
THAT’S WHAT I LOVE ABOUT THE BIBLE
WE HAVE SO MANY SITUATIONS THAT ARE GOING IN THE ENEMIES DIRECTIONS, BUT GOD
YOU COULD HAVE BEEN DEAD, BUT GOD
YOU COULD HAVE NOT RECEIVED AN EDUCATION, BUT GOD
YOU SHOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN WHERE YOU ARE, BUT GOD
YOU SHOULDN’T BE MAKING THE MONEY THAT YOU ARE MAKING, BUT GOD
YOU SHOULD HAVE LOST ALL YOUR FAVOR, BUT GOD
YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN HATED BY EVERYONE AROUND YOU, BUT GOD
THE FAVOR OF GOD IS STILL UPON YOU
BUT, DON’T THINK THAT JUST BECAUSE GOD’S FAVOR IS UPON YOU, THAT PEOPLE WILL LIKE YOU
THAT WAS THE WISDOM OF ESTHER IN THE BEAUTY CONTEST
SHE NEVER TOLD ANYBODY WHERE SHE WAS FROM
THE PROBLEM THAT MOST PEOPLE HAVE IS THAT THEY TELL THE WRONG PEOPLE WHAT GOD HAS DONE FOR YOU
YOU TELL THE WRONG PEOPLE THE BLESSING THAT GOD HAS BROUGHT UPON YOU
KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT BECAUSE PEOPLE WILL TRY TO KILL YOUR PROMISE
ONCE HAMAN, AN ENEMY OF THE ISRAELITES DISCOVERED THAT MORDECAI WAS A JEW, HE SWEET TALKED THE KING INTO DESTROYING ALL OF THE JEWS
WHAT HAMAN DID NOT KNOW IS THAT THE QUEEN WAS ALSO A JEW
IF SHE WOULD HAVE TALKED ABOUT HE R BLESSING TOO EARLY, SHE MAY HAVE LOST HER FAVOR
BUT, BECAUSE SHE WAS WISE ENOUGH TO KEEP HER MOUTH SHUT, SHE WAS ABLE TO SECURE THE FAVOR OF NOT ONLY HER BUT HER PEOPLE
HOWEVER, THIS WAS NOT AN EASY THING
IT WOULD HAVE BEEN EASY TO ANNOUNCE THAT GOD HAD FAVOR UPON HER BY GIVING A JEWISH GIRL TO THE KING OF PERSIA
HAMAN’S EVIL PLAN WAS MADE KNOWN THROUGHOUT ALL OF THE EMPIRE
AND MORDECAI SENT WORD TO ESTHER ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN
THE FIRST THING THAT HIT ESTER’S HEART WAS FEAR AS SHE KNEW THAT IF A WOMAN OR MAN APPROACHES THE KING WITHOUT BEING CALLED, HE OR SHE COULD BE PUT TO DEATH
AND TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, ESTHER HAD NOT BEEN CALLED BY THE KING FOR THIRTY DAYS
FAITH IS EASY TO HAVE WHEN YOU ARE WALKING IN FAVOR
IF ESTHER WOULD HAVE BEEN CALLED EVERY NIGHT, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN EASY, OR EVEN ONCE A WEEK, SHE WOULD HAVE KNOWN THAT THE FAVOR WAS STILL THERE
BUT SHE HAD NOT BEEN CALLED FOR A MONTH, WHICH MEANT THAT THE FAVOR WAS NOT EVIDENT, ONLY THE FIRE
HOW COULD SHE TAKE THIS STEP OF FAITH
SHE THOUGHT THAT HER POSITION WAS SECURE AND IT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE BEEN BUT GOD JUST DIDN’T MAKE HER QUEEN SO THAT SHE COULD WEAR A CROWN UPON HER HEAD
GOD MADE HER A QUEEN SO THT SHE COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN LIFE
GOD DOESN’T PLACE FAVOR SO THAT YOU CAN WEAR A ROBE, CHAIN, RING, OR A CROWN
GOD MAKES WAY FOR THE POSITION SO THAT HE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THIS EARTH
WHEN THE FAVOR FADES AND THE FIRE COMES, YOU CAN BE SURE OF ONE THING, THAT YOU HAVE COME INTO THE KINGDOM FOR SUCH A TIME AS THIS WHEN THE FAVOR FADES AND THE FIRE COMES, IT IS TIME TO TAKE A STEP OF FAITH
ESTHER CALLED A FAST AND LEFT IT INTO THE HAND OF GOD
GOD HAD TO BECOME MORE IMPORTANT THAN ANYTHING IN THEIR LIVES AND IT JUST CAN’T BE SAID, IT HAS TO BE DEMONSTRATED
ON THE THIRD DAY OF THE FAST, ESTHER TOOK HER STEP OF FAITH
IF YOU ARE IN AN IMPOSSIBILITY RIGHT NOW
OR YOU NEED GOD TO WORK A MIRACLE FOR YOU RIGHT NOW
OR YOU NEED GOD FOR SOME REASON, THEN IT IS TIME TO TAKE A STEP OF FAITH
BUT, JUST AS YOU PREPARED FOR FAVOR, YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO PREPARE FOR FAITH
AND ESTHER TOOK HER STEP OF FAITH AND FAVOR RETURNED IN THE FEAR

3. FAVOR IN THE FEAR

SHE STEPPED INTO THE THRONE ROOM IN FAITH
AND THE KING RAISED HIS SCEPTER OF AUTHORITY
THAT’S HOW YOU HAVE TO COME BEFORE GOD, YOU HAVE TO COME BEFORE HIM BY FAITH
GOD IS RAISING SOMETHING ON YOUR BEHALF
HE IS RAING YOUR EXPECTATIONS
HE IS RAING YOUR MARRIAGE
HE IS RAISING YOUR CHILDREN
HE IS RAING YOUR WORSHIP, FAITH, PRAYER, PRAISE, FIGHT
HE IS RAISING YOUR STRENGTH
YOU COME BOLDLY BEFORE THE THRONE OF GRACE TO OBTAIN MERCEY AND FIND GRACE TO HELP IN TIME OF NEED
WHEN STEP IN FAITH BEFORE GOD; MERCY IS RELEASED UPON YOUR HEALTH, MIND, EMOTIONS, JOB, FINANCES, CAREER, DREAMS, HOPES, VISIONS, PETITIONS, WHAT YOU WANT, EDUCATION
NOT ONLY DOES GOD RELEASE MERCY, YOU FIND THE GRACE THAT YOU NEED
GRACE IN NEED OF THE BONDAGE, OBSTACLE, CHALLENGE, DIFFICULTY, PAIN, UNCERTAINTY, CONFUSION
OH, I SEE GOD RELEASING SOME MERCY AND GRACE UPON SOME PEOPLE RIGHT NOW
YOU CANNOT FEAR TO TAKE THAT STEP
YOU HAVE TO TAKE THAT STEP IN FAITH
YOU WILL OFFER A MORE ACCEPTABLE SACRIFICE
YOU WILL BE TAKEN THAT YOU NOT SEE DEATH IN YOUR PROVISIONS, SICKNESS
YOU WILL BECOME AN HEIR OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
YOU CAN EXPECT GOD TO RESURRECT
YOU CAN WATCH YOUR RED SEA PART
YOU CAN WATCH YOUR WALLS OF JERICHO FALL DOWN
YOU CAN WATCH YOUR ENEMY DROWNED
OVERCOME YOUR FEAR TODAY AND TAKE THAT STEP OF FAITH AND GOD WILL RELEASE FAVOR
IS THERE ANYONE IN HERE AND YOU NEED FAVOR IN YOUR LIFE
IS THERE ANYONE IN HERE AND YOU NEED A DIVINE TURN AROUND
BY FAVOR, GOD IS TURNING THINGS AROUND IN YOUR LIFE
GOD IS TURNING YOUR FINANCES AROUND
GOD IS TURNING PEOPLE’S JEALOUSY AROUND
GOD IS TURNING THE PLANS OF THE ENEMY AROUND
AND WHAT THE ENEMY MEANYT FOR EVIL, GOD IS GOING TO TURN IT FOR GOD
ALL THINGS ARE WORKING TOGETHER, BECAUSE NOTHING SHALL SEPARATE YOU FROM THE LOVE OF GOD
AND THE KING TOLD ESTHER, EVEN UNTO HALF OF MY KINGDOM, IT SHALL BE FULFILLED
