I believe the Lord is releasing fresh faith to those who need a breakthrough. If it seems as though an attack of frustration has been launched against you, hear your Father say:

“That pressure will not rob you of your good portion!
It cannot remove that which I have set in motion for you.”

The Wall

You need a breakthrough when it’s your time to move forward—but you come up against resistance!
An obstacle looms on your horizon.
You feel as though you are facing a wall.

Today, if it seems as though you are facing a roadblock, let Joshua’s example inspire you:

  • A gigantic city wall stood between Israel and their entrance to the Promised Land (Joshua 6)
  • Meanwhile, a powerful enemy waited for them behind that wall

The situation looked dire, but as Joshua obeyed God, that wall came crashing down.

The wall that is set before you, cannot stand against you!

The Curtain

Sometimes, our difficulty is not tangible, like a wall.
Instead, mystery shrouds the way ahead.
We are facing a curtain, that we cannot see through.

In the book of Ruth, two widows—Naomi and Ruth—arrive in the town of Bethlehem with no knowledge of how God is going to provide for them.

A mystery, a curtain faces the women! But they are in the will of God.

Naomi and Ruth begin by working hard and accepting charity.
And as they take small steps forward, miracles break open and their destiny unfolds.

4 Keys to Faith for Breakthrough

So, what is the wall, or curtain, that you are facing today?
Perhaps, something specific is coming to mind.

Let your faith be ignited by these four insights about God’s timeline for breakthrough:

1. See the Foundation for Your Breakthrough in the Past

We tend to think about a breakthrough in terms of the “now” and the “future”, i.e., the present problem, and the future promise!

But our first point of reference for breakthrough is in the past!

We can look back to the cross.
And there, we see what Jesus has accomplished through His death, burial, and resurrection.

In our timeline, that is nearly 2,000 years ago!

And right there—in history—is where we can see the source of our breakthrough.
This is the position to pray and believe from.

“…Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.” (Col 2:15 NKJV)

So, we can look at the cross, and say, right there Jesus won our victory!

2. Look to God’s Eternal Plans for You

Here is another significant key to breakthrough.

And that is—that we can look even further backward—and forward—in the eternal realm!
For Jesus is “the lamb slain before the foundation of the world” (Rev 13:8, 1 Peter 1:19-20)

And “He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love” (Eph 1:4, NKJV)

So, our breakthrough has been secured by Christ in the past. And not only that; God has also determined our breakthrough in the realm of eternity.

And this is true, not only in general terms but also for you personally. As the Psalmist writes:

“Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed.
And in Your book they all were written,
The days fashioned for me,
When as yet there were none of them.” (Psalm 139:16, NKJV)

3. Know God Already Occupies Your Future

Whether a wall or a curtain faces you, here’s a wonderful truth:
God already occupies the other side.
How can this be? Because while you dwell in time, He dwells in eternity!

Your Father is already beyond that problem you face. He already occupies the other side. He is already in possession of your promise!

And with the eye of faith, you can be with God in that place beyond the breakthrough. Because it exists NOW in eternal reality.

This is the prophetic realm. And this is what David understood when he looked at Goliath and prophesied his downfall (1 Sam 17).

4. Take Hold of the Precedent for Your Breakthrough

Finally, here is another powerful key to stirring your faith for a breakthrough:

A precedent is something that goes before you, that is established as a guide and rule!

Today, your Father wants you to know that no enemy, or argument, can stand before the power and precedent of God’s Word for your life.

The God of Breakthrough

Perhaps, a problem stands between you and the promise of God. You realize that right now, you need a breakthrough.

God in His grace declares, “That which presses hard against you, only serves to bring forth My strength in you.”

  • It may be opposition or an obstacle
  • It could be a limitation or an impossibility
  • Perhaps, it is a contradiction. A logical reason!

Today, take another look at that wall, that curtain. Take a deep breath and look upwards.

Now ask, “If God is for me, who can be against me?” (Rom 8:31)

You can rely on the One who loves you.

Which do you relate to facing most right now – a wall or a curtain? And which of the four insights are speaking to you today?

I love revisiting number 1 most of all. It takes the pressure off to know that Jesus has already won the victory over the wall/enemy I’m facing! I’d love to hear from you, so leave a message in the comments box on the blog.

I am applying for a better position or promotion but nothing is happening. I developed Vitiligo and it seems like I was repigmenting but now its coming again. I have used all kinds of medications. My mother is not well and sometimes I feel like it is too much but I know that God is good and faithful. Blessings
