Is The Breakthrough You Are Wating For Is On The Way or Are You Sabotaging Your Own Breakthrough?

"A man's mind plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps and makes them sure." Proverbs 16:9

Our mind makes plans based on what we know or think, but God often leads us in an entirely different direction. We only really know very little and we base our plans on what we know ~ crazy thought when you think about it! BUT God knows everything ~ He knows the end from the beginning and will always direct our steps in what will ultimately work out for our best, if only we will cooperate with Him.

Proverbs 16:25 says, "There is a way that seems right to a man and appears straight before him, but at the end of it is the way of death." God's ways may not always be quick, easy or even in accord with to our desires, but He does have an appointed time and it will always be the right time. In other words, God has an appointment with our circumstance, with our breakthrough, with our answer to prayer.

Suppose we make an appointment at the dentist for 11:45 on a particular day ~ we've had this appointment for a long time and are waiting for it. If we show up in the dentist office at 9:00, it won’t matter how frustrated we get, they aren't going to see us ~ we will still have to wait for our appointed time.

In Acts 1:6, 7, some of the disciples said to Jesus, “Lord, is this the time when You will reestablish the kingdom and restore it to Israel?" In other words, they were saying, “Jesus, tell us when You’re going to come back. We want to know when these things are going to happen.” Jesus said to them, "It is not for you to know the appointed time. Only God knows the appointed time."

So if only God knows the appointed time and if we believe He loves us, then why can’t we believe that at the appointed time we’re going to get our breakthrough? We can prove that we trust God by enjoying our lives and being peaceful and patient while we wait.

Father God, I know your timing is perfect and I thank you for your timing. I ask that you give me peace and patience while I wait for you to move in my life with the perfect plan. In Jesus Name, Amen
