Your Breakthrough Is On The Way

. .

As I was in special prayer for our partners. . .God showed me in a particular verse seven reasons your breakthrough is on the way.

Like others. . .you may have prayed about birthing a new habit. . .turning lack into more than enough. . .and the need for a breakthrough in your life.

God directed my attention to Daniel 10:12 in the Amplified Bible where He drew a direct parallel to what happened to Daniel and what may have happened to you.

“Then he said to me, Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your mind and heart to understand and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come as a consequence of [and in response to] your words.”

Here are seven reasons your breakthrough is on the way and they all come from this passage of scripture.

1.      Fear Not

In the King James Version of the Bible we’re told nine times that we should be “born again.”  So I think it’s fair to say that being born again is significant and obviously important to God.  After all, He paid the ultimate price by sending His only begotten Son that we should not perish but have everlasting and abundant life. . .by being born again.

Would it surprise you to know that in the King James Version of the Bible were told SIXTY-THREE times to “fear not?”

God wants us to eliminate all fear of failure.

Joshua 8:1says:

“And the LORD said unto Joshua, Fear not, neither be thou dismayed: take all the people of war with thee, and arise, go up….”

He doesn’t want to us worried or fearful about what my happen tomorrow.

Matthew 6:34 in the Message Bible says:

"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes."          

2.      The day you decided

We are responsible and accountable for the decisions we make about your own future.

Job 22:28 in The Living Bible says:

“You will decide on a matter, and it will be established for you, and light will shine on your ways.”

We must decide to walk in His ways and keep His Word.

Deuteronomy 26:17 in the Amplified Bible says:

“You have [openly] declared the Lord this day to be your God, [pledging] to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes and His commandments and His precepts, and to hearken to His voice.”

Things change today. . .by the decisions you make or fail to make.

Deuteronomy 30:15 in The Living Bible says:

“Look, today I have set before you life and death, depending on whether you obey or disobey.

We have a decision to make. . .today.

3.      Purposed in your mind

Have you ever said or had said about you. . .that you can accomplish whatever you set your mind to.

Proverbs 2:2 in the New Century Version says:

“Listen carefully to wisdom; set your mind on understanding.”

Wisdom and understanding are choices. . .so is setting your mind.

Colossians 3:2 in the New American Standard Bible says:

“Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth.”

There comes a defining moment in your life when you must set your mind. . .purpose that things are going to change.

The word purpose is defined in part as:

“to set as an aim, intention, or goal for oneself.”

When you set your mind. . .when you purpose in your heart. . .you have the advantage of making decisions with the wisdom of the universe because 1 Corinthians 2:16 in the Amplified Bible says:

“For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.”

4.      Purposed in your heart

Daniel 10:12 says in part:

“. . . for from the first day that you set your mind and heart to understand. . .”

Whatpurpose shall our hearts fulfill?

1 Timothy 1:5 in the New Living Translation says:

“The purpose of my instruction is that all believers would be filled with love that comes from a pure heart, a clear conscience, and genuine faith.”

Understanding brings encouragement.

Colossians 4:8 in the New American Standard Bible says:

“For I have sent him to you for this very purpose, that you may know about our circumstances and that he may encourage your hearts.”

5.      Humble yourself

The secret to riches, honor and the good life is found in humility.

Proverbs 22:4 which says:

“By humility and the fear of the LORD are riches, and honour, and life.”

This is one of those. . . “if you do this” . . . “then you will get that” verses in the Bible.  I like this kind of verse because it takes all the guessing and wondering out of it.

The Amplified Bible translation of this verse says:

“The reward of humility and the reverent and worshipful fear of the Lord is riches and honor and life.”

Humility is proven and demonstrated through wisdom and understanding.

James 3:13 in the New Living Translation says:

“If you are wise and understand God’s ways, prove it by living an honorable life, doing good works with the humility that comes from wisdom.” 

6.      Your words were heard

When you open your mouth to speak or pray. . .your words are heard beyond your natural surroundings.  Your words penetrated the heavenlies.

God hears you.

Psalm 145:19 says:

“He will fulfil the desire of them that fear him: he also will hear their cry, and will save them.”

Jeremiah 29:12-14 in the Amplified Bible says;

“Then you will call upon Me, and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear and heed you.   Then you will seek Me, inquire for, and require Me [as a vital necessity] and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.  I will be found by you, says the Lord, and I will release you from captivity. . .”

The words that you speak to Him are not only heard but acted on.

Psalm 86:5 says:

“In the day of my trouble I will call upon thee: for thou wilt answer me.”

Even the angels hear you.

Psalm 103:20 says:

“Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.”

When you speak the Word of God, angles are commanded to obey just like Daniel 10:12.

7.      I have come as a consequence

Today, when we hear the word “consequences” it immediately assumes a punitive or negative connotation.  That’s just not the case.

The last part of Daniel 10:12 in the Amplified Bible says:

“. . . I have come as a consequence of [and in response to] your words.”

Your words have consequences . . . you decide whether they are good or evil.

Proverbs 18:20 in the Amplified Bible says:

“A man's [moral] self shall be filled with the fruit of his mouth; and with the consequence of his words he must be satisfied [whether good or evil].”       

Proverbs 18:20 in the Good News Translation says:

“You will have to live with the consequences of everything you say.”

The angel came to Daniel as a consequence of the words he was speaking.

Now let’s go a little further.

Everything was in order. . .Daniel did the right things. . .he spoke the right things but yet his answer was delayed.

Is that how you feel?

You’ve done the right things. . .you’ve prayed. . .you’ve sown seeds. . .you’ve obeyed His instructions. . .but you haven’t experienced the supernatural breakthroughs you’ve been believing for.

God wants has a Word He has for each of us. . .at this very moment.

“You’re in the midst of a spiritual battle. . .it’s not flesh and blood. . .it’s not your creditors or employers. . .it’s a direct demonic attack designed to create discouragement and doubt in your life. . .rendering you ineffective in kingdom business I’ve called you to.”

God wants you to know He’s heard your prayers. . .He knows the desires of your heart and help is on the way. 

Your answer is coming. . .do not despair. . .deliverance is coming to your house and it’s coming soon.

Your breakthrough is on the way. . .
