Breakthrough


It’s one thing to have faith for things that you can see. It’s another thing to have faith to call for things that are not as though they were. So this is a decade where you have to make those declarations, you have to stand on the prophetic promises that God has spoken over our lives, and coming into agreement and alignment with that is the foundation for the breakthrough in this season!
In John 2, it’s the first miracle they run out of the wine at the wedding of Cana. And He tells them to fill the pots to the brim, and He does the miracle and turns the water into wine. And that picture of the turning the water into wine is a picture of God taking something like water that is very ordinary and turning it into something that is so extraordinary. And when God’s hand touches our life, we become transformed from water into wine.

That’s where the breakthrough begins in our life.

God has provision for you. How many times have you said, there’s got to be more than just living and waking up every day and going to bed and doing the same old thing, collecting the same paycheck, month after month…
There are key elements to get you to that life of overflow— the first is faith, because one of the things that you see with the miracle is that the miracle doesn’t happen until everything runs out. God doesn’t show up and do the miracle until everything runs out. Because he wants to build faith. The disciples were going to need to have faith to learn to trust God for the provision.
God is saying, you’re backed into a corner because I’m getting ready to do a miracle… an overflow miracle!Take your faith and trust to a deeper level, which is what you need if you’re going to live in the overflow. It’s one thing to get the breakthrough, it’s another thing to maintain it and to live in it as a lifestyle. If you don’t take risks for God, you’ll never accomplish anything great at a life. You celebrate success and performance. But that’s not what God celebrates.

Breakthrough

God has broken through my enemies by my hand, like the breakthrough of waters. Therefore they named that place Baal-perazim. 1 Chronicles 14:11 NASB

David had been anointed king, and the Philistines were concerned. They knew he had defeated their champion, Goliath, and led Israel’s armies to other victories. They determined to search for him and silence him.

David was ready to confront these enemies. But before taking any action, he sought God’s direction. God responded, Go up, for I will hand them over to you (v. 10).

When Israel followed God’s leading, they won a great victory. David realized that this had been a breakthrough. He had broken through his enemies like water rushing through a blockage, like a bursting flood (ESV).

David was aware that they had faced a massive problem, but God delivered them. He knew that God shattered the walls that stood before him. He tore open a hole in the enemy line that led to great victory.

It was such a powerful moment that he changed the name of the place where the battle had been fought. It became Baal-perazim,the possessor of breaches. David wanted everyone to remember that God had given him this breakthrough. He could give them breakthroughs, too.

We face many types of problems. We can feel overwhelmed and outnumbered, afraid and discouraged. We can be filled with doubt and worry. Remember what David learned: God is the God of breakthroughs. He can give you victory in any situation, even when defeat seems inevitable. Believe Him for your breakthrough today
