When You Are Waiting on God For Your Breakthrough

When You Are Waiting on God For Your Breakthrough. Keys to victorious faith.

One of life’s lessons is to wait on God when you need a breakthrough! However, when we become impatient, frustrated, worried, or aggravated it is because we are trying to make something happen that only God himself can make happen. Joyce Meyer calls this “human energy attempting to do God’s job.”

How many times have you prayed and believed God for a breakthrough in your life to not see anything happen? I have many times. So what are we to do? How are we to act during this time of waiting?

Mark 4: 26-28 tells the story of the patient farmer. How do we know he is patient? Because the Word tells us he sowed his seed, then went away sleeping and rising! This does not sound like worrying and fretting to me. Then at the proper time the ground brings forth the promise of the seed – the harvest, the breakthrough! The Farmers job was to do what he knew to do: plant, sleep, rise and do his daily work, then allow the Lord of the Harvest to bring forth the promise.

Jesus was showing us how often we become impatient and try and get ahead of God. When God has given us a promise to stand on we want to know “God how are you going to do that? When are you going to bring it to pass? Verse 27 says “and then continues sleeping and rising night and day while the seed sprouts and grows and increases – he knows not how.” (Italic added) A farmer never knows exactly when his crop will come in, but he knows that it will. He does what he can and allows God to do the rest. We need to do the same thing. We are to believe we have a breakthrough coming, we sleep and rise and allow God to bring it about in due season. The farmer planted the seed believing for his return, his promise, his breakthrough and we are to do the same!

    This is a lovely post. I am in a desert phase and not enjoying it. However it is in this phase that we are to wait on the Lord and search for Him. I too am a Type A.

    I love this entry on breakthrough, Sandra. I am currently reading “The Secret to True Happiness” by Joyce Meyer right now. As a type A, take charge, “doer” person I find it difficult to wait. In her book she does a wonderful job explaining how to enter into the rest of God. Hebrews 4:10,11 (AMP) says:

    “For he who has once entered [God’s] rest also has ceased from [the weariness and pain] of human labors, just as God rested from those labors peculiarly His own. Let us therefore be zealous and exert ourselves and strive diligently to enter that rest [of God, to know and experience it for ourselves], that no one may fall or perish by the same kind of unbelief and disobedience [into which those in the wilderness fell].”

    I need to choose faith over worry and running ahead of God every day and adhere to the wisdom in Hebrews 4:3 “For we who have believed (adhered to and trusted in and relied on God) do enter that rest..” Walking that out for me means getting my mind off the problem or challenge and choosing another activity to engage in. Soaking up praise and worship also helps me to enter His rest.
