Are You Seeking Breakthrough in 2020?

Tuesday, January 21, 2020 / TBN Staff

As Christians, we are faced with battles every day.

 
Pastor and author, Shawn Bolz, challenges us to expand our faith by looking beyond our limitations. He illustrates this by using the example of David and Goliath.
 
In 1 Samuel 17:45, David saw how fear entrapped the Israelites when they fled from Goliath. However, David looked fear in the eyes and proclaimed: 
 
You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
 
When David saw Goliath, he saw God’s relentless power move beyond his circumstances. By faith, David knew his weakness would be manifested into God’s strength. In the midst of the battle, it is hard to look past our human understanding. However, Shawn encourages Christians to boldly confront our modern day Goliaths and say: My God is bigger than this!
 
So, how do we hear God’s voice in the midst of chaos?
 
Shawn says we need to recognize God’s spirit in us. Take a look at 5 battles you are facing right now and ask:
 
  1. What does Scripture say about this circumstance?
  2. How is God expanding my faith?
  3. Are there doubts that I need to surrender to God?
 
Then, prayerfully listen to what God has to say. Every season has a purpose, and God’s intention for you is to break through the impossible. God is pruning your heart for more the same way He pruned David’s heart to defeat the giant!
