Prepare to Receive the Generosity of the Lord!
December 7, 2017
Beloved, the Lord gave me this word out of the book of Esther today, and it’s wrecking me. I’ve been seeing the manifestation of this word already in unprecedented ways for about the last three days, and it’s wrecking me. The word is this: Prepare to receive the generosity of the King!
Specifically, the Lord showed me these three things for you today:
1. YOU HAVE BEEN ASSAULTING THE THRONE OF GOD WITH YOUR PRAYERS, NIGHT AND DAY.
You may have thought that the Father did not hear you, but in reality He heard every word. You thought He was not answering; but in reality, He was simply waiting for His own timing.
His thoughts are not our thoughts, nor are His ways our ways. But, He does have your ultimate best in mind, and He will eventually show you why He waited to answer your prayer.
NOW, HOWEVER, YOU HAVE STIRRED HIM SO MUCH THAT HE IS WAITING NO LONGER TO ANSWER.
He cannot contain Himself anymore, and He has determined that He will honor you and your prayers–and do so better than you ever imagined.
You have been the watchman on the wall mentioned in Isaiah 62:6-7:
“I HAVE SET WATCHMEN ON YOUR WALLS, O JERUSALEM; THEY SHALL NEVER HOLD THEIR PEACE DAY OR NIGHT. YOU WHO MAKE MENTION OF THE LORD, DO NOT KEEP SILENT, AND GIVE HIM NO REST TILL HE ESTABLISHES AND TILL HE MAKES JERUSALEM A PRAISE IN THE EARTH.”
THE LORD IS NOW HONORING YOUR FAITH.
You have agreed with His heart, both for yourself and for the earth. You have been the one He sought for, who would stand in the gap before Him for the land, for people you know, and for His best will for your life
Now you will receive your answers out of the generosity of the King.

2. THE GENEROSITY OF THE KING IS COMING TO YOU.
As you have prayed and agreed with the Lord’s heart on the earth, you will now see the answers to the prayers you have lifted up before Him. You will see these answers in accordance with the generosity of the King.
The book of Esther describes the generosity of the King multiple times:
Esther 1:7: “And they served drinks in golden vessels, each vessel being different from the other, with royal wine in abundance, according to the generosity of the king.”
Esther 2:17-18: “The king loved Esther more than all the other women, and she obtained grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins; so he set the royal crown upon her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.
Then the king made a great feast, the Feast of Esther, for all his officials and servants; and he proclaimed a holiday in the provinces and gave gifts according to the generosity of a king.”
Esther 5:3: “And the king said to her, ‘What do you wish, Queen Esther? What is your request? It shall be given to you–up to half the kingdom!’”
Esther 5:6: “At the banquet of wine the king said to Esther, ‘What is your petition? It shall be granted you. What is your request, up to half the kingdom? It shall be done!’”
Esther 7:2: “And on the second day, at the banquet of wine, the king again said to Esther, ‘What is your petition, Queen Esther? It shall be granted you. And what is your request, up to half the kingdom? It shall be done!’”
ALTHOUGH YOU HAVE HAD FAITH, YOU HAVE HAD NO IDEA OF THE TRUE GENEROSITY OF THE KING. BUT, NOW YOU WILL.
The Lord desires you to look at Him with eyes of expectation. He wants you to see Him as He is:
FULL of mercy, goodness, and truth;
FULL of abundance;
A giving, loving Father …
and a doting Bridegroom.
And if you will continue to believe Him, you will NOW see your prayers answered in accordance with His true generosity.
Isaiah 62:8-9 says:
“The Lord has sworn by His right hand and by the arm of His strength: ‘Surely I will no longer give your grain as food for your enemies; and the sons of the foreigner shall not drink your new wine, for which you have labored.
But those who have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the Lord; those who have brought it together shall drink it in My holy courts.’”
THE THINGS FOR WHICH YOU HAVE CONTENDED WILL BE MANIFESTED. THE PRAYERS YOU HAVE SOWN WILL REAP A HARVEST.
No longer will you see it happen for everyone else only. The Lord has sworn by His right hand and by His mighty strength: you who have gathered the harvest through your prayers shall eat the results, and you shall be filled with praise.
The Lord has brought back your captivity.
Remember the words of Psalm 126, for these are the words you will see manifest:
“When the Lord brought back the captivity of Zion, we were like those who dream. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing.
Then they said among the nations, ‘The Lord has done great things for them.’ The Lord has done great things for us, and we are glad.
Bring back our captivity, O Lord, as the streams in the South. Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him” (Psalm 126:1-6).
3. BUT IT IS NOT THE TIME TO GIVE UP IN PRAYER.
Your prayers are giving God permission to bestow His generosity upon you. So, rather than sitting back and stopping your aggressive prayers, redouble them. Remember that:
“The heaven, even the heavens, are the Lord’s; but the earth He has given to the children of men” (Psalm 115:16).
Just as Esther’s banquets of wine became the forum in which she received the requests of her heart, so are your prayers the forum in which you will receive the answers to your desires.
Your prayers release God to move in your life, where you have authority. Without your prayers, the gates of your life are closed to God–for He has given the earth to the children of men.
So don’t stop praying. Pray now. Pray loudly … and keep praying.
And don’t be surprised at His answers, for He is now pouring out from His own generosity–the generosity of the King.
