“I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.”Revelation 3:8
Many of you are feeling such an intense onslaught from the enemy that you feel as if you are at your breaking point. Even so, the Lord says, “In the breaking, you are actually breaking through!” The Lord is encouraging us right now to look beyond what we see in the natural. Breakthrough does not always look how we think it will. It is written that as high as the Heavens are above the earth, so his thoughts as ways are higher than ours (Isaiah 55:8-9).
Do not back down, even amidst the struggle and pressure that you are currently experiencing. Truly, the Lord is at work! There’s always darkness before the dawn. Though your weeping may endure for a night, His joy comes in the morning (Psalms 30:5). You may feel weak and empty, but the truth is the Lord is strengthening you amidst the trial
“Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”2 Corinthians 12:8-10
Keep pressing forward. Keep fighting the good fight. He is mighty in your midst, and regardless of how it appears or how it feels, God is bringing the breakthrough!
“The One who breaks open the way will go up before them; they will break through the gate and go out. Their King will pass through before them, the Lord at their head.”Micah 2:13
