Praying for a Breakthrough
You will sometimes hear believers say that they are praying for a breakthrough, a breakthrough in their finances, a breakthrough in the things that they want from God. The truth is that Jesus Christ will supply in all our needs if we seek His will, His kingdom.
The kingdom of God is not about a breakthrough in your and my desires. It is about submitting ourselves to the will of God and praying like Jesus commanded, "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done." It is a about denying ourselves, our own plans, and our own ambitions and our own visions, and going after Jesus, picking up our cross and following Him every day.
The kingdom of God is not about us and our desires. It is about doing the will of God. You do not need a breakthrough. You need to follow Jesus Christ. You need to submit yourself to Him, ask His guidance and follow Him.
Without Jesus Christ we can do nothing. We need to perform His will, His works. We need to submit ourselves to Him, obey Him and receive from Him, His guidance. We need to seek His guidance, follow Him and do His will.
When Jesus goes ahead of you and you follow Him, then He makes all things work together for good, because you are seeking to do His will, you are seeking the kingdom of God.
Stop praying for a breakthrough and submit yourself to Jesus. Seek His will, seek His kingdom and He will guide you. He will use you for His kingdom. While you are still seeking your own desires, you are selfish and self-centered, you are in rebellion against God.
Submit yourself to Jesus, seek His will and follow Him.
May Jesus bless you.
