STREAMS OF JOY DEVOTIONAL – NOT BY STRENGTH

“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)

That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.

Our Focal Scripture speaks of the two olive trees that were positioned on the right side of the candlestick, and on the left side of the candlestick. The right side is often symbolic of strength and power and precision; even Psalm 118 vs. 16 speaks of how the right hand of God does valiantly. The left side is symbolic of weakness. So both the strong side and weak side produced oil. Results came both from the weak side and strong side.

Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: you shall have results both from your weak side and your strong side. From the places of your strength, there shall be supplies; from the places where you are not strong enough, there will still be supplies. From the places where you are doing really well and from places where you may not have done your best, results shall come forth. From both your strong and weak points, results shall show forth.

Your supplies will not be stopped; your supplies will not be halted. Even when your strength is not enough, you will still have results. Even when you do not have people on your side, you will still have results. Even when you do not have all variables working for you, you will still have results. Even when you do not have all the resources, strength, abilities, etc you need to make things work, you will still have resounding results.

If supplies come from the place of your strength alone, you would think they came because of your strength; but when they come from the place of your weakness, you would know that only God would have made it happen despite what you may not have done well. Sometimes, God causes results to come from your weak areas in other to keep you humble and make you realize that it is about Him and not about you.

Ask God to cause results to arise from your weak and strong points. Ask God to cause results to besiege you from all sides.

Romans 9: 16 says: “So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy.”

Declare With Me: Results shall flow both from my strong and weak areas, in Jesus’ name!
