Have you ever wondered. . .God, why do I have to go through this?

Or perhaps, you thought. . .why am I going through the fire?

While I realize that no one wants to go through hard times…

I can tell you with absolute certainty what you will find in the fire.

It’s your miracle.  That’s right.

Your miracle is in the fire.

My favorite Bible story as a child was about the three Hebrews thrown into the fiery furnace.  I loved this story even more than Daniel in the lion’s den.

Before we go any further. . .once again. . .I’m going to make a powerful, life-changing statement that I want you to write down.

Breakthrough is a word we hear quite a bit in Christian circles.

I checked twelve different translations and found breakthrough only appears in the Message Bible and not in the context of contemporary usage.

According to dictionary.com breakthrough is defined as:

“a military movement or advance all the way through and beyond an enemy's front-line defense; an act or instance of removing or surpassing an obstruction or restriction; the overcoming of a stalemate.”

The dictionary definition is more in line with how we use the word breakthrough.

Now let me share with you the Herring Life Experiences definition of breakthrough.  It is a:

A seed is a supernatural blessing.

Genesis 1:11 in the Amplified Bible says:

“And God said, Let the earth put forth [tender] vegetation: plants yielding seed and fruit trees yielding fruit whose seed is in itself, each according to its kind, upon the earth. And it was so.”

Every seed carries a specific genetic instruction on what it shall produce.

We don’t have to tell a watermelon seed to produce watermelons because that invisible instruction is hard-coded in each seed.

Everyone knows apple seeds bring forth an apple harvest and peach seeds bring forth a harvest of peaches. Seeds produce a harvest after their own kind.

It has always been this way and it will never change. The seed you plant always determines the kind of harvest you reap.

I cannot stress this point too strongly. It is not the kind of harvest you need that determines the kind of harvest you will receive. It is the kind of seed you plant. Don’t fool yourself.
