Scripture Reading: ZECHARIAH 4: 1-9


“Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.” (Zechariah 4: 7)

In our Focal Scripture, Zechariah declared that Zerubbabel shall bring forth the headstone with shoutings of grace. A headstone is like a cornerstone, which is part of the foundation of a building. So there were going to be shoutings of grace at the foundation level. The foundation level in a building is the beginning stage of the building. So there were going to be shoutings of grace at the beginning. There was grace to build from the beginning.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: the grace for great beginnings is released upon you. Receive grace to begin on a higher level; receive grace to start the new things that God has placed in your heart to start; receive the grace to begin that journey you want to embark upon; receive grace for new results; receive grace for fresh impact; receive grace that will start as the process starts; receive grace that will join you in your new beginning.

The rebuilding of the temple had faced severe opposition despite the proclamation of Cyrus; and it was only going to resume because of the proclamation of Darius. God saw the opposition, and declared through Zechariah that there would be shoutings of grace. Hear me as I hear the Lord: for every difficulty on your pathway, there will be shoutings of grace. For every opposition against you, there will be shoutings of grace.

Grace will open the new doors you have been knocking on. Grace will speak for you when men speak against you. Grace will make a way when men erect roadblocks on your pathway. Grace will reposition you on a higher level. Grace will make room for you in high places. Grace will list your name as being amongst those who should be celebrated and congratulated. Grace will create new beginnings for you that you didn’t pray for.

Welcome to your new season of exceeding grace. You will start with grace. You shall witness new beginnings that will come by grace.


I enter into my new beginnings by grace, in Jesus’ name!
