 Are you looking for a Breakthrough?

God reveals Himself in Scripture as the God who can do anything. Nothing is too difficult for Him. When there are obstacles and enemies and problems all around us… God does His best work. He specializes in miraculous breakthroughs.

God desires to produce breakthroughs in our lives. So many live life in a prison of sin and bitterness and guilt and shame and dysfunction. God wants to breakthrough those walls that keep us incarcerated so that we can really live the abundant life and experience His joy, peace and power.


There are definitely some things you and I need to do in order to see a breakthrough in our marriages, our families, our individual lives:

1. Get Honest. God cannot work miracles in a person who is living in denial and cover up. Getting honest may be painful, but it is so very necessary. Lancing a boil is very painful… but you cannot get better unless and until you get the infection out. The bottom line question is summed up succinctly in John 5:6: “Do you want to get well?”

2. Get Right. If you mess up, you need to fess up. David messed up royally with Bathsheba. He was broken before the Lord over his sinful actions. He got honest, confessed his sin and got things right in his heart with God. He said, “The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; and a broken and contrite heart, O God, You will not despise” (Psalm 51:17). Be assured, there is no forgiveness without godly sorrow and repentance.

3. Get Focused. God works mightily where there is honesty, brokenness and repentance. Once we have done this, we then must focus on Him and His mercy, love and power. “Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master, as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress: so our eyes look to the LORD our God, until He shall be gracious to us” (Psalm 123:2).

God will not make us wait indefinitely. As we continue to look to Him, He will intervene at the proper time and bring about a breakthrough for His glory and your ultimate good.
