Break Through

Break Through

Lisa Buffaloe: In 1947, pilot Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier. He reported the turbulence was terrible right before he broke through, but after the air was as smooth as glass.

I wonder how often in the midst of major turmoil and difficulties, if we aren’t actually on the brink of a breakthrough. Satan wants to stop us in any way possible. Yet if we will keep moving forward with God’s help, we can break through any barrier.

When times are tough, hold onto God, He will help you break through!

"Though I walk in the midst of trouble, God will revive me; He will stretch forth His hand against the wrath of my enemies, and His right hand will save me. Thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. For nothing is impossible for God." 
~ Psalm 138:71 Corinthians 15:57Luke 1:37 (NASB)Posted: 24 Apr 2015 01:21 PM PDT

    "Dear Heavenly Father, forgive me for limiting 
my thoughts, limiting my prayers, and limiting my 
view of Your magnificence. Help me to keep my eyes 
and heart on You and You alone. Oh Precious Father, 
thank You for who You are and for all You do. I’m 
strapping in tight with You for a fun, amazing, wild 
ride, for You are the God of great and mighty and 
unexpected things! I love You forever, Father!"

Today’s Bible verse: Job 14:15 "Thou wilt call, and I will answer thee: thou wilt have a desire to the work of thine hands."

Today's praise verse: Ps. 28:6 "Praise the LORD, for he has heard my cry for mercy."

The morning light it welcomes me 
To yet another day 
A day with opportunities 
To walk the narrow way 

And even though I may not know 
The things that lie before 
I know that as I walk with God 
I'll learn to trust Him more 

For every moment that we face 
The challenges in life 
And turn to God for strength by grace 
To overcome the strife 

Are moments that we grow in Him 
The more like His dear Son 
Who though He came as God in man 
Portrayed what makes us one 

That constant prayer connection 
Where God can live in me 
Revealing all His grace through love 
That others too might see 

A constant revelation 
Of heaven's light right here 
By constant demonstrations 
Of service far and near 

For God did not in Jesus come 
Through pomp above all men 
But as a servant living love 
To help the least of them 

And in this way as day by day 
He met the needs of them 
He gave us an example here 
To be the more like Him 

For if it is our purpose here 
To save the souls of men 
Then it must be our purpose here 
To help the least of them 

To realize the love of God 
By service to their needs 
That therein they might hear the call 
For which God's Spirit pleads 

To open up their hearts to Him 
That He might there abide 
And all the sins they once had known 
Will wash out with the tide 

For He has promised He will cast 
Them deep into the sea 
That we might from their guilt and death 
Forever be set free 

And as we come to know His love 
So deep within our hearts 
We'll understand the reason why 
He longs to have a part 

In every moment day by day 
He grants us from His hand 
That every moment day by day 
He'll live through us His plan 

To save all those who will respond 
To what He came to give 
As by His life of sacrifice 
He taught us how to live 

So do not fear what you might face 
That comes to you this day 
But trust that as you walk with Him 
He'll lead you in the way 

That leads to life eternal 
Fresh from the Father's hand 
Fulfilled in you by what you do 
To serve your fellow man 

Inspiration taken from Galatians 5:13

Today’s quotes: Michael Brooks - "God deals with sin as progressive. How so? In three stages. First, from the moment we open our hearts to Jesus, we are saved from the penalty for sin. Second, as we walk the Christian path, by the influence and guidance of the Holy Spirit, we are saved from the power of sin in our lives. Third, when Jesus returns, we will also be saved from the very presence of sin." 1 Cor. 1:18b  "but to us who are being saved it is the power of God."

Randy Kilgore - "We often find ourselves in unexpected places, places we never planned nor wanted to be. We may be drowning in debt, inhibited by physical barriers, or suffering under the weight of sin's consequences. Whether Christ finds us this day in a prison cell or a palace, whether He finds us broken and broke or absorbed by our own selfish desires, Scripture tells us to heed Paul's advice to forget what lies behind and to press forward toward Christ (Phil. 3:13-14). (Taken from Start from Here!, in Our Daily Bread 6/6/15)

Some thoughts today: God begins a saving work in us when we open our hearts and lives to Jesus.

- Feast on the book of Romans, found in the New Testament of the 
Bible. Many of your questions about the Christian faith and walk will be answered right there! Guaranteed

-  The answer of fixing yourself is not in you. God the Father is the only One capable of changing us into His likeness.
