Our definition of breakthrough often differs because we are not all seeking and desiring the same things out of life. The season of life that we are in also determines the nature and magnitude of the breakthrough we may be needing and also the degree to which we hunger for it. When we are younger we have more faith for certain things, because we are not marred by the realities of this world. But as we grow older and mature we become skeptics to what God can really do in and through our lives. But the truth is wether we are young or older God remains the same and so our faith should remain child like.
Every good and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Hebrews 1.17.
I have been in a long season of waiting and trusting for certain things to bear fruit in my life. I must say it has been a rollercoaster of note but as I have waited and trusted I have seen breakthrough in areas of my life I was not even aware needed breakthrough. Short of the long is I am grateful for the waiting because in it I matured and learnt golden nuggets that I know will go a long way.
As I move towards the light at the end of the tunnel I have faced great resistance, and been discouraged at times just by life’s circumstances. The past two months I have encountered flames and keeping up the faith has been hard I won’t lie, but at the same time I really feel that God is refining me before I receive what I have been waiting for.
At times at the verge of our break through we face the most resistance because the enemy wants nothing more than to see us fail.
I have really had to trust in God, not only his word but also his promises over my life. There is a Bethel song that I am currently obsessed with called called Yes and Amen. I am actually listening to it as I write this post, it has been the soundtrack for what my own words often have failed to express to God in this season and has been the plug to continually seeking and trusting him.
Patience is not easy but it has also been a key towards receiving what God has promised me. There have been times in the waiting were people have offered me counsel that has not been appropriate to my situation because of their impatience over my own life and there has been times were I have really have valued words of wisdom from others. Trust me people can really be impatient with your own life, its actually crazy but lets not dwell on that. The key is to stay woke, and align any advice with what God has already told you.
I believe it is really okay to be selective when it comes to who you let speak into your life because not everyone wants to see you win.
In the spirit of always keeping it short and sweet, I really hope you never lose your fire in the pursuit of the breakthrough that God has promised you. It is often when we are so close to breakthrough that the fiery darts come to distract us, but keep up the faith for the joy set before you.
