Breakthrough in the Days Ahead
Next I want us to look at:
A fixed mental attitude or spiritual disposition that determines how you will interpret and respond to situations
A predetermined course of acting and thinking
A belief system
What are the characteristics of a Spirit-led Breakthrough Mindset for the remainder of 2020?
- Vision beyond what we can understand or see (future)
Many people’s faith- limited to their understanding
Must make sense
Heb 11:1-3 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
Matt 21:22 If you believe, you will receive
- Speaking life into every situation
Don’t speak death
God works on the positive

- Not giving the enemy any entry point

- Seeing every situation from the Lord’s perspective
God is greater
When Lord enters in, everything changes
“Lord how am I to see this”

Ps 148:13 Let them praise the name of the LORD,
for his name alone is exalted; his splendor is above the earth and the heavens.
John 1:3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
- Determined to see the Lord’s promises realized
will not think otherwise
Will not give up
Eph 6:13 stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Gal 6: 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

Mind is made up
Know that you know
Just a matter of time
