Today you’ll learn why does God delays your breakthrough.
But first, the basics…
What is a breakthrough?
“Breakthrough,” according to Google, is:
“A sudden, dramatic, and important discovery or development or an instance of achieving success in a particular sphere or activity “
What is God’s plan for your life?
If you do not know, you need to search the word, not your heart.
Our desires and God’s are not the same:
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:8-9
Something worth remembering is that we as human beings are fallen creatures born into sin, and God is Holy.
Therefore our desires are stained by corruption, whereas God’s thoughts and desires are Holy.
So when we seek a breakthrough, are we seeking our own desires or the Lord’s will?
So why does God delay your breakthrough?
Because it might not be the breakthrough, God wants for you.
God might be allowing you to struggle financially so that you don’t place idols on your heart.
There could be a number of reasons why does God delay your breakthrough, such as:
- You need to humble yourself
- You need to put God first
- You could be seeking something other than God
- You could be working to gain recognition that is not holy in God’s sight
However, there could be a million different reasons, but the truth is we need the Holy Spirit to work in our hearts to identify what we are doing wrong.
In fact, we need to reflect on ourselves, not on the external things that are going wrong.
There is always a lesson in every season.
As Luke 9:23 explains:
Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.
We need to remember what Jesus told His disciples in Luke 9:
Our desires need to take a back seat; God’s will is to be at the forefront.
God wants you to know this…
He always has a better plan.
But you need to set your minds on things above, not on material wealth or success.
As Matthew 6:33 states:
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Spiritual things matter more than physical things: our treasure is in heaven, Jesus is our treasure, and what more can we ask from Him?
He has given us eternal life.
As Matthew 6:19-21 says:
“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
So seeking a breakthrough should not be our main priority:
I get life is hard, but an easy life does not build character, and character is the thing that will go with you after you have died.
If you do not live for God now, why would you want to be in heaven where all you would do is worship Him?
Check your heart and align it with His plans.
