Multitudes of Christians around the world are hearing the word “Breakthrough” and that we are being ushered into a season of breakthrough regarding the years the locusts have stolen.
I believe this is a year for the fruition of God given dreams. Dreams that we’ve held deep inside our hearts, minds and spirits; a time for us to inhabit a deep sense of divine purpose for our lives.
About five years ago, I remember wondering what I was supposed to be doing with my life. Our family had experienced so much change in a short amount of time, I wondered if I would ever get my normal back. I wondered if my music ministry would ever be ignited again . (I share my testimony about my encounter with Jesus as a worship pastor in a previous blog post: Tis So Sweet To Trust In Jesus)
Unaware that he was working behind the scenes God introduced me to a dear friend who taught me about the power of declaring God’s word over my life, and I began declaring His promises out loud back to Him as declarations, because His word does not return void. Praise God!
One of my declarations was that I would be able to be fruitful in ministry and have creativity back in my life. I am beginning to see it happen!
Psalm 49: 3-4 says “For wisdom will come from my mouth, words of insight and understanding will be heard. From the musings of my heart, I will break open mysteries with my music, and my song will release riddles solved.”
This is my verse for this season. He is teaching me to see who I am through His eyes, and not waiver at the whim of circumstances that threaten to discourage. “Never give in–never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Now that I think of it, God gave me hope years ago when I attended a Britt Nicole concert with my (then) teen aged daughter Moriah. The most unfathomable thing happened for me while I was there! Britt gave me a word from the Lord that night…FROM THE STAGE, BEFORE HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE…WITH MIC AND ALL!!! It was absolutely amazing…you can check out that story on a previous blog post: Britt Nicole’s Word of Knowledge
Within the last month, God has revealed to me how He sees me. I can see it! And it’s because of His breakthrough. Looking back on my life, I could see how the enemy tried to inhibit me from my purpose.
I just started a YouTube channel called: [ Songs of Deliverance] It has two videos on it so far, but I’ve heard it said not to despise the day of small beginnings! [DappyTKeys ] was extremely influential for me as a creative worshiper, plus [ Julie True] and other prophetic worshipers that record in this way.
God is definitely bringing breakthrough in the life of the believer. What breakthroughs do you sense God bringing into your life?
I pray that you will see your purpose and calling through the eyes of Jesus this month, and that once He shows you what that looks like, you stay the path, not turning to the left or to the right. I pray you never give up and never surrender.
