Making “Breakthrough Decisions”

Acts 2:17-21

2 Sam. 5:19-20

Ps 37:23-24

‘In the last days,’ God says, ‘I will pour out my Spirit upon all people.(the anointing) In those days I will pour out my Spirit on those who are serving me

David said, “I watched the LORD break through like a mighty flood.” So he named the place “The Lord of the Breakthrough

When a person’s steps follow the Lord, God is pleased with his ways. If he stumbles, he will not fall, because the Lord holds his hand.

The Lord has released the Prophetic Word for 2019

2019 the year of Realization

2019 The Year of ….

Possessing Your Breakthrough

Throughout this year remember…

“It’s all about  the Spiritual”

  • “On earth as it is in heaven”
  • We first breakthrough in the spiritual real
  • Then we see it in the physical realm

We’ve been looking at

Possessing a “Breakthrough Mindset”

Prov 23:7 For as a man THINKS in his heart, so is he.

You will see breakthrough in 2019 to the degree you live in a

“Breakthrough Mindset”

I said:

  • God has revealed His methods
  • If we wants to see Breakthrough
  • Do it “HIS WAY”
  • “I did it His Way”

Our next area is

How to make

“Breakthrough Decisions”

 “How to hear God”

In order to see Breakthrough

You have to know

  • His Will
  • His Plan
  • His Way

Jere 29:11

I KNOW what I’m doing. I KNOW the plans I have for you–plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.

Isa 30:21-22 Whether you turn to the right or to the left,

you will hear a voice, saying,”This is the way you should go.”

Knowing God’s

Will – Plan –Way

Is essential to “Breakthrough”  in 2019

 

You’ve heard me say as Christians …

  • We don’t make decisions
  • “We follow in obedience“
  • His ways ….
  • Always WORK!
  • Our focus is to:
  • “Find His Will”
  • Guaranteed Breakthrough!

Most people make decisions by

  • Guessing
  • Logic
  • Manipulation / persuasion / feelings
  • Asking others
  • Fortune cookies /horoscope-astrology / flipping coins
  • Circumstances

Is. 55:8-9, James 1:5

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,“ declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault,

and it will be given to him.

Prov. 3:7 Do not be wise in your own eyes

James 3:17 ..wisdom comes from above

 

Making correct (Godly) decisions/choices are important to seeing-

Breakthrough

Making incorrect (ungodly) decisions/choices are important to seeing –

Breakdown

Examples Old and New Testament

  • Adam and Eve in the Garden listening to Satan
  • Moses striking the rock 2nd time
  • David and Bathsheba
  • Kings- Allowing Foreign gods
  • Judas becoming a traitor
  • Peter denying knowing Jesus
  • Pharisees/Sadducees denouncing Jesus as Messiah

I want us to look at “Foundations for Breakthrough Decisions”

  • From daily decisions and choices that will impact our lives..
  • Which job to take, which car to buy, where we are to live, which person to date or marry
  • To who we choose to serve/ His will
  • Our lives are defined by the decisions we make
  • The decisions that we make determine“breakthrough”

 

Breakthrough Decision Making (Meaning)-

  • The ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting; insight.
  • A wise outlook, plan, or course of action.
  • The ability to apply knowledge, experience and understanding
  • Making the wisest decision

In order to make Breakthrough (Godly) decisions…

You have to …
Know God

John 10:14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me—

John 10:27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

Ps 119:64 The earth is filled with your love, O LORD;

1 John 4:7-9 for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love. This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.
