Scripture Reading: ZECHARIAH 4: 1-9


“So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?” (Zechariah 4: 4)

It is instructive to observe that when God mandated Cyrus to rebuild the temple in Jerusalem, Cyrus also mandated several Jews who were hitherto in captivity to return to Jerusalem (see Ezra 1, 2). The good news of the rebuilding of the temple seemed to compel Cyrus to release the people he had held in captivity. Good news arrived and captivity ended. Good news arrived, and it did not exist side by side with negativity.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: it will never be said that your good news arrived and you remained in bondage. It will never be said that God opened the doors and gates of your destiny and you remained in affliction. It will never be said that your good news has been birthed and yet you remained under subjugation. It will never be said that your new season was unveiled, yet you remained locked up in the chains of the enemy.

Today, I decree, every bondage that is getting in the way of your new season is going down now. Every affliction in your body that does not want you to enjoy God’s goodness in the land of the living, I command it to expire now. Every satanic burden the enemy has created to make you shed tears of pain when you should be dancing and celebrating, I command it to be taken away from you. I command every chain to break.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: your blessings will not stay side by side with bondage. Your laughter will not be mixed with pain. Your progress will not be submerged in setbacks. Your rising will not be countered with anything that works abominable. You will never be counted amongst them that their good news could not find full expression because of negativity. You will never be counted amongst them that their new season was dark.

The same God that brought your good news will take away every darkness of the enemy surrounding your good news. Your time to rise, is now, and no power of hell can stop you.


My good news has arrived, and every bondage has ended, in Jesus’ name!
