Scripture Reading: ZECHARIAH 4: 1-9


“And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.” (Zechariah 4: 3)

Our Focal Scripture speaks of the two olive trees that were positioned on both sides of the lampstand. These two olive trees supplied olive oil directly into the bowls that fed the lamps with oil. Notice that in bible times, you needed to harvest the olive, then crush it, before extracting the oil of the olive. There was a process for producing olive oil, but in Zechariah’s vision, that process of the production of the olive was waived.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: protocols will be broken for your sake. Protocols that stood in the way of people ahead of you will be waived for your sake. Protocols that should delay you or complicate your journey will be waived for your sake. The processes that would have encumbered your journey will be waived for your sake. The roadblocks that exist on your pathway which should hinder your speed will be waived for you.

Hear me as I hear the Lord: it will not be by process, but by grace. Your rising will be by grace. Your results will be by grace. Your congratulations will come by grace. Your new season will be unveiled by grace. Your next level will come by grace. Your profits will come by grace. Your celebrations will come by grace. The doors and gates that God is opening for you will be opened by grace. Matters of your life will be settled by grace.

When process is involved, mere mortals can hinder your results. When process is involved, you may have to wait longer than necessary, against your wishes. Today, I pray for you: let the grace of God swallow the processes that should have hindered you. Whatever processes that would have hindered you, let grace make it easier than expected. Whatever processes that are against you, let the grace of God answer for you.

When Jehovah is involved, processes are replaced with grace. Let the grace of God speak for you. Let protocols be broken. Let processes be waived for your sake.


Processes and protocols will be waived for my sake, in Jesus’ name!
