"God Says: 'This is Your Season of Breakthrough!'"
Gretchen Rodriguez, Redding, California

Recently, the Lord spoke to my heart that many are on the verge of a significant, life-changing breakthrough, and it's coming out of some of our deepest pain. The areas of trauma, disappointment, disillusionment, and fear that continually rear their heads, are the areas we are about to experience tremendous breakthrough.

The enemy has been sucking people into fear, worry, desperation, etc., doing everything he can to derail. Mentally, you may feel like you're getting slammed in some of the same areas you've already experienced victory. This is because the Lord desires to bring a new level of freedom by revealing the root of wrong thinking. Though the enemy wants to enslave us in a cage of unhealthy mindsets, the Lord is turning things around and catapulting us into one of our most significant breakthroughs!

Finding Clues in Our Emotions

In order to partner with what He wants to do, we first must pay attention to not only what we're thinking about, but how we're feeling. Emotions aren't meant to dictate our feelings or state of mind. They are important clues to understanding our deepest beliefs or hidden pain. When we're frustrated, worried, angry, etc., we mustn't brush those feelings under the rug. We must take them to the Lord and ask Him what the root is. For example, if we're trying to control situations and/or people, the root is often fear. If we're in fear, we're not trusting the Lord. Acknowledging these things, repenting, and getting free are His plan. Also, His plan is always the best and simplest way to breakthrough.

The Lord spoke to my heart: "I want you to pay attention to what you're thinking about. Both the obvious thoughts and the subtle musings of your subconscious. Nothing must go unchecked. Every thought must come into alignment with My truth. It's time to become aware of your thoughts and feelings, and bring them to Me. Let Me peel back the layers, the lies, and the heaviness. I know how to address the distortions that have wedged themselves into the dark crevices of your mind.

"This is your season of breakthrough! This is not a small or temporary breakthrough. This will be a significant internal breakthrough which will alter the course of your life.

"I am using the enemy's tactics against him. As you recognize the lies you have been mentally subjecting yourself to and bring them to me, I will bring you to a place of unyielding surrender unlike you've ever known. I am doing a deep work in you; drawing out the infestation of lies like poison, so that you can be truly free. Simply pay attention to your thoughts and emotions so I can heal and set you free."

"So above all, guard the affections of your heart, for they affect all that you are. Pay attention to the welfare of your innermost being, for from there flows the wellspring of life." (Proverbs 4:23 The Passion Translation) (To Subscribe to the Elijah List subscribe here.)
