Soul Food : To Breakthrough



"You will call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest" 

- Isaiah 62 : 6b


This is our portion of scripture for the week.

The message is quite clear. Here the prophet Isaiah is talking to the Israelites but this also applies to us as we have also become children of God through Christ.

This verse reveals a truth that many Christians seem to have forgotten or are oblivious to : we are to cry out to God and not stop until we get our breakthrough. If you read on to verse 7 even the prophet Isaiah  continues and says "and give him no rest till he..."

Many times, we tend to forget this and tend to stop half way through or even sometimes, when we are just about to get our breakthrough.

Brothers and sisters, to breakthrough, we have to persevere. Perseverance is the key to open doors and success. God answers prayers but sometimes, we are to go on praying, believing and crying out to God and surely, if what we are asking is according to His will, He will surely answer for He knows the plans he has for you, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (Jeremiah 29 : 11).
Child of God, remember, "...no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless" (Psalms 84 : 11b). Whatever you are looking up to God for, crying out to Him for or waiting on Him for, do not relent, do not stop and do not cease. God will surely answer you according to His will. 
Please do not give up, especially when your breakthrough is just around the corner. It is especially at this time that the devil steps in and tries to discourage us and lead us away from our breakthrough.

Wait on the Lord, pray continually and fast as God leads, you will surely breakthrough. Do not let the devil steal your breakthrough...Be patient, and consistent, do not relent for God will surely show up on your behalf in that situation you are believing him in. Giving up is certainly not the key or the solution. 

Remember the story of Hannah (1 Samuel 1)? Remember her determination and her perseverance? She never stopped praying. At the end, she got her result : Samuel. There are other such examples in the Bible.
My pastor says someone once said push for Christians means Pray Until Something Happens...

May God teach us how to persevere in Jesus' name and by His grace, we will surely breakthrough!
Amen!
