Men sent

Scripture Reading: ZECHARIAH 4: 1-9


“And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:” (Zechariah 4: 2)

The vision of Zechariah in our Focal Scripture speaks of lights in the temple. The menorah was meant to shine its light perpetually, because there was meant to be a periodic supply of oil by the priests (see Exodus 27 vs. 20-21). The light was not going to shine perpetually on its own. God mandated some men to take responsibility for providing the oil that will keep the light burning. God positioned men who ensured that the light did not go off.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: God is positioning men in your favour, and they will ensure that your light does not go off. God is sending you helpers who will ensure that you remain afloat. God will send you men who will speak for you and ensure that the gates of hell do not prevail against you. God will position men who will fight the battles to keep you relevant. God will position men who will use their oil to keep you burning.

Notice that the priests were under divine mandate to supply oil in the menorah. They were under mandate to ensure that the light did not go off. They were mandated to come with what the menorah needed. Today, I pray for you: let the Lord bring the people you need. Let the Lord bring you people who are carriers of what you need to remain afloat. Let the Lord send you men who have a mandate to pour oil into you.

In this season, God is sending you men who are carriers of the oil that will cause your light to shine brighter and brighter. God is sending you men who will position you on higher levels. God is sending you men who will open new doors for you. God is sending you men who will cause your gates to remain perpetually open. God is sending you helpers who will do for you what you cannot do for yourself and by yourself.

The men you need are under mandate to come your way immediately. The carriers of the oil you need are coming your way sooner than you expected.


The men that I need are coming to me, in Jesus’ name!
