I Chronicles 14:8-17
On October 1, 1947 Chuck Yeager became the first person to break the sound barrier when he flew the Bell X-1 rocket plane to a speed of MACH 1 at an altitude of 45,000 feet. In aerodynamics, the sound barrier is the apparent physical boundary stopping large objects from becoming supersonic.
But in 1947, Chuck Yeager became the first human to break through that barrier to a new level of flying. Just like Chuck Yeager discovered, I believe we all can learn to break through the barriers we face in our lives.
We all face barriers. Walls that stand in the way of our making progress. And if we’re going to keep moving forward in our lives, we’ve got to learn to break through those barriers and get to the next level of living in our lives.
A wise man has said it this way: “Wherever people find themselves in life, they usually possess the natural desire to move up. They want greater recognition. They want to make more money. They want to live in a better home. They want to advance and improve.”
The problem is that setbacks, failures and roadblocks often discourage us and test our commitment to progress and growth.
What is a breakthrough? David gives us the definition of a breakthrough in verse 11: “…then David said, ‘God has broken through my enemies by my hand like a breakthrough of water’.”
A breakthrough is when God generates a wave and sends it in your direction, and you ride that wave onto dry ground and a higher level of living in your life. Like a breakthrough of water, God wants to send waves into your life. Waves that will smash walls that have been built up in front of you.
A breakthrough creates momentum in your life in a new and fresh direction. And the longer it is the bigger it gets. This is what God wants to do in your life for 2019. He wants to set a new course and give you momentum to help you move in that direction for 2019. Believe God for breakthrough in every area of your life for 2019. It’s a year of new beginning.
