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)

In Zechariah’s vision, He saw the two olive trees on either side of the lampstand. Agriculturists say that even when an olive tree is cut down, it sprouts again and fruits when it was meant to have fruited. So after it is cut down, as it begins to sprout again, it fruits as though it was never cut down. It fruits at the time it should have fruited. It fruits despite being cut down. It fruits and follows the timeline of fruiting despite being cut down.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: your results will show forth regardless of what the enemies of your destiny do to you. Your miracles will not be postponed on account of the lies of men against you. Your new season will not be postponed on account of how many people who have chosen to position themselves against you. The new doors and gates that God is opening for you will not be affected by the conspiracies of your haters.

The same way what you cut out of the olive tree does not reduce its destiny, what your enemies cut out of your life will not reduce you or stop you. What your enemies do against you will not stop what God is about to make happen in your life. Whatever controversies that your enemies have put together against you will not stop your results. Whatever wickedness that is being meted out against you will not stop your results.

If Jesus has redeemed you, then you belong to that generation whose destinies cannot be truncated by the plots of the enemy. You belong to that olive generation whose results cannot be postponed by merely cutting it down. You belong to that group that is unaffected by the evil plots of the enemy. What they did to stop others will not stop you. What they used to limit others cannot be used to limit you.

No matter what is cut out from you, and no matter who has cut himself or herself out from you, what the Lord has destined for you will not be stopped.


No matter what the enemy does, my results cannot be hindered, in Jesus’ name!
