God of Breakthrough
There is a common denominator to all biblical breakthroughs—they were sought after.
How often we mistakenly think worrying is the same thing as praying; that because we have an area of deep need, God will provide. We forget sometimes that we have never actually asked Him for help. Sure, there are times we will experience God’s grace and kindness sporadically, He is a good God and surprises us often! But the adventure lies in the conversation. If you want to see miraculous breakthroughs for you and your family, talk to Him!
God longs for us to initiate conversation with Him regarding the things that weigh heavy on us. Jesus reminds us that we are able to come to Him and He will give us rest in all areas of our lives. If it is big enough to worry about, I assure you, it is big enough to pray about. Moreover, God loves when we converse specifically, talking to Him about the details of our prayers.
When we pray a blanket statement such as, “Lord, bless my family this year.” We are prone to falling into patterns of ungratefulness, we simply don’t notice when things are, in deed, blessing our family. Yet, when we ask Him for the details, when they occur, the glory, unmistakably, goes to the One who masters the breakthroughs! Adonai!
This year, as we continue on these 21 days of setting ourselves to seek the presence of the Lord, I pray you would take God at His word. He who has promised is indeed faithful! Pray specific prayers, and watch for specific breakthroughs. Your valley of trouble can, and very well may become your valley of victory—all it takes is a conversation. I have sensed an extraordinary season of breakthrough and I’m standing with you, believing with you for your promises. Let’s agree together, as a community in unity, that God’s Spirit will break in, break out, and bring breakthrough to each of our lives!
“I have been young, and now am old;
Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken,
Nor his descendants begging bread.
He is ever merciful, and lends;
And his descendants are blessed.”
– Psalms 37:25-26 (NKJV)
Think About It
1. Our God is the God of breakthrough and all of His promises are “Yes” and “Amen!” Our “Yes” must be born of obedience; when by obedience we ratify a promise of God by saying, “Amen,” or, “So be it.” That promise becomes ours. What are the promises you are standing on today and what are the areas that you are believing for victory or breakthrough?
2. Specific prayers get specific answers. How specific have you been with the Lord in your prayers lately?
3. Take some time to listen today to hear what the Lord is wanting to do in and through you. Let Him sow the seeds of promise and breakthrough into your heart and then begin to water them through your prayers. It’s time to stand firm and be vigilant about what the Lord desires to reveal through us as an expression of His Kingdom.
