Here is the teaching outline for SUNDAY NITE LIVE. Join us at 6 PM EST.
The Herring Life Experiences definition of breakthrough is:
“Sudden burst of revelation that enthusiastically moves you beyond all previous points of past resistance bringing you to a new level of success.”
1. Get A Plan.
1Timothy 4:15 NLT
“Give your complete attention to these matters. Throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone will see your progress.”
Genesis 6:22 NKJV
“Thus Noah did; according to all that God commanded him, so he did.”
Genesis 7:5 NKJV
“And Noah did according to all that the Lord commanded him. “
2. Stand on the Word
Acts 15:31 AMPC
“And when they read it, the people rejoiced at the consolation and encouragement [it brought them].
Ephesians 6:13-17 MSG
“Be prepared. You're up against far more than you can handle on your own. Take all the help you can get, every weapon God has issued, so that when it's all over but the shouting you'll still be on your feet. 14 Truth, righteousness, 15 peace, 16 faith, 17 and salvation are more than words. Learn how to apply them. You'll need them throughout your life. God's Word is an indispensable weapon.”
3. Obey the Word
Luke 11:28 AMPC
“But He said, Blessed (happy and to be envied) rather are those who hear the Word of God and obey and practice it!”
Here are four questions to ask yourself as you obey the Word.
1. What does the verse say?
2. What does the verse mean?
3. What does the verse have to do with me?
4. How can I apply this new understanding in my life?
Proverbs 8:32 MSG
"So, my dear friends, listen carefully; those who embrace these my ways are most blessed. Mark a life of discipline and live wisely; don't squander your precious life. Blessed the man, blessed the woman, who listens to me, awake and ready for me each morning, alert and responsive as I start my day's work. When you find me, you find life, real life, to say nothing of God's good pleasure. . ."
4. Speak faith out of your mouth.
Matthew 12:36-37 KJV
“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.”
Luke 6:45 AMPC
“The upright (honorable, intrinsically good) man out of the good treasure [stored] in his heart produces what is upright (honorable and intrinsically good), and the evil man out of the evil storehouse brings forth that which is depraved (wicked and intrinsically evil); for out of the abundance (overflow) of the heart his mouth speaks.”
5. Be careful what you say
Mark 11:22-24 NLT
“22 Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God. 23 I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. 24 I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.”
6. Continually sow toward your miracle.
2 Corinthians 9:6 AMPC
“[Remember] this: he who sows sparingly and grudgingly will also reap sparingly and grudgingly, and he who sows generously [that blessings may come to someone] will also reap generously and with blessings.”
2 Corinthians 9:6 AMPC
“. . . and he who sows generously [that blessings may come to someone] will also reap generously and with blessings.”
7. Be patient.
2 Peter 3:9 AMPC
“The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people's conception of slowness, but He is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance.”
First, make an immediate decision to follow Jesus.
Matthew 4:22 NIV
“and immediately they left the boat and their father and followed him.”
Acts 9:20 NLT
“And immediately he began preaching about Jesus in the synagogues, saying, “He is indeed the Son of God!”
Second, when you reach out in faith. . .healing virtue flows.
Luke 5:13 NIV
“Jesus reached out his hand and touched the man. "I am willing," he said. "Be clean!" And immediately the leprosy left him.”
Luke 5:25-26 TLB
“And immediately, as everyone watched, the man jumped to his feet, picked up his mat and went home praising God! 26 Everyone present was gripped with awe and fear. And they praised God, remarking over and over again, "We have seen strange things today."
Third, when you follow Him. . .time, space and distance are of no consequence.
John 6:21 TLB
“Then they were willing to let him in, and immediately the boat was where they were going!”
Acts 8:39 AMPC
“And when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord [suddenly] caught away Philip; and the eunuch saw him no more, and he went on his way rejoicing.”
Fourth, when God directs you to do something. . .don’t delay. . .do it right then.
Luke 4:39 TLB
“Standing at her bedside he spoke to the fever, rebuking it, and immediately her temperature returned to normal, and she got up and prepared a meal for them!”
Fifth, disobedience can bring immediate judgment.
Acts 12:23 KJV
“And immediately the angel of the Lord smote him, because he gave not God the glory: and he was eaten of worms and gave up the ghost.”
Sixth, acknowledging God brings manifestation even in seemingly impossible circumstances.
Acts 16:26 KJV
“And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed.”
Acts 16:25 KJV
“And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.”
Seventh, Jesus will deliver you RIGHT NOW from every adversity.
Matthew 14:31 KJV
“And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?”
The very good news is that God always has a grip on those He loves and those who love, honor and obey Him. . .even though we may slip from time to time.
