Breakthrough Part 2

Breakthrough Part 2

Is. 40:31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; 
they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be 
weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

The key to really breaking through is waiting. Many times, we jump the gun and go for what we know, only to find out that we should have waited on God. The sad part about this is, we can usually look back and see a trail of bad decisions based on our inability to wait on God. And until we decide enough is enough, we will continually get it wrong. I believe that there is a sure path for everyone to take and I believe that many times, we are blinded by what others have or what we don't have. We see it through the eyes of our wants and desires instead of through the Spirit. God is trying to tell us that he has everything we need, and yet we want to go before God and then drag him along, believing he will work it all out in the end. But this is a destructive pattern because the fruit of our errors will only grow larger. Even though we may have a calling or believe we have a purpose in God, we could lose our family, friends, children, jobs, money, homes, etc. behind our inability to wait on him and his sure path. Waiting on God means that in spite of how we feel or how desperate the situation becomes, we decide that unless God shows up, we do nothing! This is the place that God desires in our life. He wants to be first and not last. He wants us to be sensible, and mature in our thinking. He wants us to consider the loss and count the cost. It takes preparation time to do these things. The wait is not just a senseless period of time that God needs to work things out, but it's a time of preparation for the big picture. This is where those that are called are separated from those that are chosen. The ones that are only called do things for self, because even though they know their called, they can't overcome their own agenda. But the chosen ones are the ones that wait on God no matter how trying it gets.

When you don't wait on God, you are telling God that you don't trust him. Your breakthrough is delayed and may never come if you don't trust God for it. God wants us at the point where we know him and can put our trust in him. The period between the wait and the promise is the period where we learn to trust in him for everything. He said "lean not your own understanding, but in all thy ways acknowledge him!" This is the path to your breakthrough. When you lean to your understanding, you error! When you take the leading of the Spirit out of the picture then you really are saying that God is not in control of you. God wants to be God over you. He doesn't want you giving the enemy the ability to always stop your progress. You have a responsibility my Christian friend! You must get to a point in your life where nothing else matters. Your personal feelings don't matter, your past doesn't matter, and what people have around you doesn't matter!

You have to get to the place where, no matter what it cost, you are going to wait on God! Every great leader waited. Every great pastor or clergy, minister or prophet had to wait. There was always a time of preparation in their lives and the same goes with you. You have to wait on God. But be of good courage during your waiting. If you make the right choices and do it God's way, your waiting period can be wonderful in itself. You can experience God and know him through the test and trials of your waiting period. And it will make your journey to the promised land more fulfilling if you can hear him and follow him there. Your breakthrough is coming, all you have to do is wait.
