LORD OF THE BREAKTHROUGH
In the journey of faith, breakthrough is not just a desire; it’s a necessity. It’s a moment when the walls that hinder us from reaching our full potential come crashing down, revealing the path God has laid before us. But achieving breakthroughs requires more than wishful thinking or passive waiting—it demands a transformation from within.
Scripture teaches us in Luke 18:1 to “always pray and not give up.” Prayer is the cornerstone of our relationship with God; through persistent prayer, we invite His power to work in our lives. Yet, too often, we grow weary and quit before the breakthrough manifests.
True breakthrough requires a shift in our belief system. We must recognise that what we go through is not a setback but a training ground for the victories ahead. Just as a sculptor chips away at a block of marble to reveal its hidden beauty, God chips away at the hardened beliefs and mindsets that hold us back.
In Philippians 4:6-7, we are reminded to present our requests to God with thanksgiving, trusting His faithfulness to answer. Prayer isn’t about changing God’s mind but aligning ours with His purpose. It’s about surrendering our desires and embracing His will, even when it costs us something.
The story of the persistent widow in Luke illustrates the importance of relentless pursuit in prayer. We must rely on something other than the efforts of others or expect instant results. Breakthrough requires our active participation, willingness to fight through challenges, and determination to persist despite obstacles.
As we journey towards a breakthrough, let us not grow discouraged or lose heart. Instead, let us press on in prayer, trusting that God is faithful to fulfil His promises in His perfect timing. Let us embrace the process of transformation, allowing God to chisel away the barriers that hinder our progress. And let us remember that breakthrough is not just a destination but a journey—a journey of faith, persistence, and unwavering trust in the Lord of the breakthrough.
