Day 2 – Breakthrough!

2020 VISION | Day 2 | Breakthrough!

“No weapon formed against you shall prosper,

And every tongue which rises against you in judgment

You shall condemn.

This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord,

And their righteousness is from Me,

Says the Lord”(Isaiah 54:17, NKJV).

A breakthrough is a beautiful thing. God specializes in them. He stands by with everything we need to become the person He created us to be. Change is good; breakthroughs are beyond description. When you encounter your God – in His wisdom, His mercy, His love, and His delight in you – you will know the difference between a course correction and a breakthrough. In 1917, a young man named Martin Treptow left his job in a small-town barbershop to go to France and fight for our freedom. Treptow was killed while carrying a message between battalions under heavy artillery fire. On his body there was a diary. On the flyleaf, under the heading “My Pledge” he had written these words: America must win this war. Therefore, I will fight, I will sacrifice, I will endure until the bitter end, as if the outcome of the whole struggle depends only on me.” We can breakthrough any barrier when we write our commitment to God on our hearts with the same urgency and sense of mission that Treptow showed. God will lead us across any rough waters and we will rest in His will, His mercy, and His power.

Prayer: Lord, I want a breakthrough in my life, my family, my church, my community, and my world. I believe You will show me the way to a river of mercy that I can swim in from this moment until the moment I reach heaven. I give you my past, my present, and my future. Fill me with the Holy Spirit’s gifts and show me the battlefield where you want me to use them to draw every soul to a relationship with you, through your son Jesus, in whose name we pray, Amen!
