Dearly beloved we are gathered here today to bid farewell to uncertainty. We are gathered to say so long to doubt, good riddance. Today is the day we call LIFE to the stand. The LIFE who bled and died for all of man. Never has He ever forsaken the righteous, always is the King Jehovah beside us, in all trials of life. With him present, sickness has to leave. Call on HIM saints, His blood runs through your veins!
Do you see it? It’s near, your midnight hour is lurking on the other side of this trial you see. In the midst of it all, in the words of Elevation Worship, “by your spirit I will rise from the ashes of defeat, the resurrected King is resurrecting me.” Through it all, He is bringing you out of whatever you are going through. You are NOT alone.
4 Things to Do While You Wait for Your Breakthrough
- Keep Going Regardless of How You Feel– Have you ever felt like you’re either going nowhere fast or like you’re stagnant, nothings happening? Well, I’ve been there done, that, bought the t-shirt with the cup of coffee. See, feelings flutter like the trees in the wind. One minute they’re there, next they’re off like a kite in the wind. Instead of focusing on your feelings, focus on God, your hope. It is certainly easier said than done as we are humans and humans have emotions. Don’t ignore how you feel, just don’t give it prominence, especially if it’s not bringing you joy.
- Dig Your Heels In- What’s worth having takes time in most cases. Let your heels rest on the Solid Rock. Remember whose you are, you are the child of the LIVING GOD! Yes, you have trials, life happens, yet when life happens it doesn’t overcome you. Instead, your heels are dug in and your armor (the armor of God) is on. You’re ready for this victorious fight.
- Go on a Stakeout- When you are waiting, you know something’s coming from somewhere. When you know something is coming, what do you do, you look for it. Now, if you don’t know which way it’s coming, you’re going to be looking all around. Keep your expectations high for God does not disappoint. #lookforit
- Keep Your Hope ALIVE- Hope, expectation in God. Expect God to complete what He began in you, He finishes what He starts. God is a finisher, He didn’t stop creation with the animals and He didn’t stop with Adam either.
Look for the SOURCE of your hope, not the thing you’re hoping for. -Pastor Jimmy Miller
The Midnight Hour
After you’ve done all the above, just stand. I know it’s cliché but wait on what you’re hoping for, wait on what you’re believing God for and act as if it’s already happened. Let me tell you a story. This is a story all about how, my dreams were deadlocked, fragmented some how, I want to take a moment and share with you the time my midnight hour came breaking through. It was the year 2015, on a Friday, I remember it as clear as day, I received an email from a publisher saying, we want to publish your book today. After many no’s and attempts that failed, God’s word of what He told me surely did prevail.
You see, it’s called a midnight hour for a reason, it’s a moment of suddenly. I had to wait for my suddenly, do not let your hopes die while waiting for your midnight hour. The breakthrough will break through. Amen.
What are you waiting to breakthrough?
