“So David went to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, ‘As waters break out, the Lord has broken out against my enemies before me.’ So that place was called Baal Perazim” (2 Samuel 5:20).

 

If you want to have a breakthrough year, then begin by seeking God. No one I can find in the Bible ever had breakthrough without first seeking God. David sought God, and God answered. Jehoshaphat sought God, proclaimed a fast, and God answered. When you seek God through fasting and prayer, He’ll show up. He desires to be in your presence, He desires to be invited, He desires to be in relationship with you!

Do you need a breakthrough? Then break out! Break out of the norm and do something different! If you keep doing the same thing, you’ll keep getting the same thing. But I believe God wants to mark your life with incredible breakthrough.
