Joshua 3:11 – Behold, the ark of the covenant of the Lord of all the earth is crossing over before you into the Jordan.
God never asks anyone to go where He has never been or gone!
God never asks anyone to do what He has not already done!
He is the Lord of the Breakthroughs!!!
Micah 2:12-13 New King James Version (NKJV)
12 “I will surely assemble all of you, O Jacob,
I will surely gather the remnant of Israel;
I will put them together like sheep of the fold,
Like a flock in the midst of their pasture;
They shall make a loud noise because of so many people.
13 The one who breaks open will come up before them;
They will break out,
Pass through the gate,
And go out by it;
Their king will pass before them,
With the Lord at their head.”
The above scripture speaks of the regathering of Israel and the breakthroughs that will accompany the regathering. It also shows us that The lord will lead this breakthrough. God is already regathering and settling Israel in their land and He is performing incredible breakthrough as He continues to build up Israel. It is in this context and background that I feel the Lord spoke these words to me.
In 2020 we will experience God’s Extraordinary, Spectacular Breakthroughs in Our Lives if We SEE WHAT He IS DOING and FOLLOW HIM WHERE HE LEADS!
Let not mercy and truth forsake you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart,
And so find favor and high esteem
In the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
It will be health to your flesh,
And strength to your bones.
The Key to Successful 2020 is FAITH!!
Heb 11:1,6, Rom 1:17, Rom 10:17,
3 Important points about Faith
1. Faith is like a muscle, it is a spiritual muscle that has to be used. Without faith you cannot access anything in God.
2. Without the word of God you cannot have faith. So, if you are not in the bible and meditating on His word you cannot have faith.
3. Faith Has Corresponding actions or If you have faith it will show in what you do! James 2:26
