” BREAKTHROUGH MIND-SET

We said

No God-No Breakthrough

If you want to see Breakthrough you have to know God’s

  • Will
  • Plan
  • Ways

Knowing God Is essential to “Breakthrough” In 2019

  • Heb 11:1
  • Now faith is being sure of what we hope (believe) for and certain for what we do not see.

key

The Key to the receiving Breakthrough is

  • Believing

Mark 9:23

“If you can believe, everything is possible for you”.

Knowing God will give us and increases our

  •                      Ability to believe

Mark 9:24 Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, “I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!”

Phil 2:13 For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to believe Him.

Paul is saying

I pray that you would come to understand the incredible power that is available for those who (to) believe. It is the same release of His mighty power that raised Christ from the dead

From Believing to Receiving Your Breakthrough

God’s Power to STAND

Eph 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power

Today I want to look at:

POSTURING FOR BREAKTHROUGH

How to posture yourself until you receive

What is the position we are to take spiritually and mentally in order to ensure we receive what the Lord has promised

I call this “spiritual posturing”

Phil 1:3-6 1 John 5:14-15 MDV

Every time I remember you, I thank God in my prayers. My prayers for you are filled with joy because of your involvement in the gospel from the very beginning . Posture yourself in this mindset and be confident of this very thing, that God has started His work in you and will see that it is completed  when Jesus returns.

This is the posture we are to take: if we ask anything according to God’s will, he hears us and if we know that he hears we have what we asked for.

1 Cor 16:13 Be on your guard; posture yourself firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.

Eph 6:10-11 Finally, posture yourself in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes

Col 1:23 So continue in your faith, posturing yourself established and firm, not moving from the hope held out in the gospel.

This is a very important time

it’s called the:

“in between time”
“In between” the promise and the Breakthrough

It’s important how we posture ourselves during this time

(It’s where many miss their Breakthrough)

POSTURE

  • attitude
  • stance
  • mindset
  • a determination
  • a focus

Posturing correctly is very important to defeating the enemy’s attempt to rob from us the Lord’s promise of Breakthrough.

1 Peter 5:8 Be vigilant because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour

John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy;

1 Peter 5:9 Resist him, stand fast in the faith

Let’s look at

 How-to posture for Breakthrough  to defeat the enemy In the in-between times

Important

  • STAND
  • OPERATING
  • PROCEDURE

Posturing to Defeat the enemy in the in-between times

  • Don’t allow negative thoughts to control you

“This is never going to happen”

“God forgot”

God only works on a “positive”

Negative thoughts lead to:

negative words, which lead to negative actions

Don’t allow yourself to become discouraged

Discouragement robs us of

physical, emotional and spiritual strength

Brings on depression

Steals faith

  • Don’t allow yourself to become frustrated with God’s timing

Frustration pours over into every area of life.

Places stress on relationships

Takes away joy

Makes each day harder

  • Don’t miss the daily lessons each day

The enemy wants us caught up in existence

The Lord has set divine opportunities to walk right into the increase

  • Don’t become isolated from other people

The enemy wants us to pull away from people.

We are to encourage one another

Removal from fellowship/church

There is power in agreement

  • Don’t disconnect from God

Enemy’s ultimate objective is to be angry at God

His presence is a place of protection

With the spirit of the Lord is there is liberty

  • Don’t Give up your Ground

Give in

Settle for less

Stand

Believe

Declare
