God is the God of the breakthrough, but He uses our hands. If you do your part, He will do His. 2 Chronicles 20:17 contains a powerful promise that has encouraged many Believers over the years: "But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the LORD's victory. He is with you, O people of Judah and Jerusalem. Do not be afraid or discouraged. Go out against them tomorrow, for the LORD is with you!"
There is No Progress without Resistance
There is a spiritual battle over your breakthrough. We can only win the battle in the spirit. Nothing splendid has ever been achieved except by those who dared believe that something inside them was superior to their circumstance. His name is Jesus.
Breakthrough can be defined as a moment in time when the impossible becomes possible. If anyone wants to thrive in any area of their life, they have to reach a point of breakthrough where they will not settle for anything less than extraordinary. A few of the dictionary definitions of the word "breakthrough" are: "an offensive thrust that penetrates and carries beyond a defensive line in warfare" and "the act or instance of breaking through an obstacle."
A breakthrough is an act or point of breaking through an obstruction or defensive line; it is an important advance in knowledge or achievement. Breakthrough itself is sudden, rapid and often unexpected. Breakthrough is God waiting on us to respond in obedience to what He has already commanded and already promised. Breakthrough happens when we take the first offensive step against the barriers in our life. Breakthrough happens when we say, "I'm going to trust that God is going to supernaturally do the impossible."
Illustrations of Breakthrough
A breakthrough of water. The main idea for breakthrough comes from the breakthrough of water in 2 Samuel 5:20, "So David went to Baal Perazim [which means 'possessor of the breaches'; carries the idea of 'the Lord who possesses the breach or point of breakthrough'] and David defeated them there; and he said, 'The LORD has broken through my enemies before me, like a breakthrough of water...'" (emphasis mine). The breakthrough of water is like a crack in a dam that continues to grow wider and wider.
A troop and a wall. This next illustration of breakthrough is from 2 Samuel 22:30, "For by you I have run through a troop: by my God have I leaped over a wall."
Breaking through city gates. Another picture of breakthrough is when a walled city is under siege and the opposing army is breaking the gates down with a battering ram. A battering ram is thrust forward time after time until ultimately the gates burst open. The importunity of intercession can be likened to constant and continual calling out to God until the point when the answer comes. In days gone by, this was known as "praying through."
8 Strategic Keys to Breakthrough in Your Life!
1. Persistent prayer. Grace works in persistent prayer! Spiritual breakthroughs come to those who persevere before the throne of grace in faith. Have you tried breakthrough prayer as a collective body? Before breakthrough takes place, we need supernatural perspective. When the supernatural wisdom of God begins to flow from the dimension of Heaven to your spirit, the Holy Spirit gives your mind the revelation of the truth.
Spiritual maturity is developed as we learn how to persevere and persist, anchored on God's Word, even when our natural circumstances show absolutely no signs of improvement. You become the greatest catalyst of breakthrough when you learn how to hear what God is saying and pray these eternal realities over the present conditions.
2. Worship. 1 Samuel 1:19, "And they rose up in the morning early, and WORSHIPED before the LORD, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah: and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the LORD remembered her" (emphasis mine).
3. Decree. "You will also decree a thing, and it will be established for you; and light will shine on your ways" (Job 22:28 NASB). Are you in need of a breakthrough? A prophetic decree is an authoritative "now" word that unlocks the supernatural and causes a shift to take place. When we decree something, we are making a declaration that has the weight of Kingdom authority behind it.
4. Obedience—it is key. Jericho and the walls coming down required obedience. God gave directions to Joshua—they were not suggestions, they were His commandments. Their victory was totally reliant upon their obedience.
5. Shout! Praise is faith expressing itself audibly. Faith has a voice. Faith calls those things which be not, as though they were, and those things that be, as though they were not. Faith hears God say, "It's done," sees God make it so, and shouts because it believes it's done! Paul and Silas' prayer and praise caused tremors in the realms of darkness. Suddenly, a violent earthquake shook the building, and the doors were opened (see Acts 16:26).
6. Change your perspective. This requires seeing the invisible. Faith is about "things we do not see." There are many ways of seeing or looking at something, but what matters is how God sees things. Sometimes we need to "change our approach to the battle."
7. Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving builds our faith, and that faith sustains us while we continue to believe for the complete miracle—for ourselves and for others. Focusing on what God is doing causes us to be thankful.
8. Hearing God. The voice of God is the master key to your supernatural breakthrough. Hear it and speak it. Agree with the decree.
If you TRULY want to create a breakthrough in your life, take consistent and persistent steps daily to your dreams or goals! (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
