Soul Digest 1: Every Breakthrough begins With A Step


Soul Digest   1


Every Breakthrough begins With A Step


It is always easy to pray, fast and wait for breakthroughs but what many  people find hard to do  is to start the journey to the breakthrough.


Today, many people are seeking and praying that things be well. For this to happen, we have to begin the journey to make things well. If we do not do it, we must remain where we are. And it doesn’t matter when you started, every breakthrough begins with a step.

We tend to forget that if we want a breakthrough we have to start the journey towards it. Every breakthrough we see today is not achieved overnight.


No breakthrough was achieved in this life waiting on God. There must be action to make it happen.IF we need a breakthrough we have to start the journey to the breakthrough. We have to begin the step. We cannot be sleeping or resting in our rooms  , waiting on God to give us breakthroughs, we have to begin the journey.


When God wanted to create the world, He did not just do it overnight, He created the world step by step. There was a journey towards that.

When Jesus came to the world to save it, He did not rush it. He took His time. He began by selecting the apostles, and then the disciples. Jesus went from village to village, town to town to evangelize them, He showed his healing power, taught the crowd several times and within the end of His life, he took time to prepare His apostles. Everything was in step.

Also, when Jesus sent the apostles to preach the good news to the world, they did not achieve that overnight, they began the journey to it and passed through lots of challenges


Therefore, If we pray to God for something, we do not fold our hands waiting on God to come down from heaven and do everything for us, we have to begin the step.


We have to begin working towards the opening. Breakthrough here means success at last. It could mean an act of overcoming or penetrating an obstacle or a barrier finally after many struggles and challenges.


So, breakthrough is all about achieving success at last,despite the hurdles along the way. Every breakthrough is simply a win over adversities and difficult situations. For one to achieve this, you have to begin  the journey and become resilient despite any hurdles along the way.

Break through is two key words: break and through, which infer the presence of a barrier. When this barrier is broken, then we go through. We must make an effort to break through.


Many people who are passing through great difficulties today are either fearing the difficulty or they are yet to begin the journey towards their breakthrough.



Some people have tried but got tired along the way, some have put up great efforts to be fine yet no avail, and the solution they could remember is to give up.


Just like in  breaking a door, you have to hit, push, try and try different strategies until you break through a barrier.


It is a barrier and does not require one sleeping nor being lazy. Breakthrough does not even favour those who blame, complain and give excuses.  It only favours the resilient.


If you want success, begin the journey towards your success. The key about breakthrough in the Christian life is that we must first breakthrough ourselves! Let us begin the journey and stop wasting  time seeking for heavenly manna.


“Breakthrough moments are often the result of many previous actions. If you want to be a saint, start the journey, if you want to be closer to God, start the journey, if you want to achieve success, you have to begin the journey. Whatever you want to achieve in life, begin the journey.

This is the time to rise above those negativity, criticisms, failures, and showing that we do not have to be bound by the past.


Jesus has conquered them, and through Him we have a glorious present and future to grasp. This is the time  to breakthrough whatever it is, that is keeping us back. It can be the mistakes of the past, it can be the sins of the past, we have to bury and crucify them.  Winners were not born winners; they learnt and practiced how to win and they have it!


Everyone who gives a great testimony about his/her life begins with a beginning that was “inadequate” until something happened. It became a dramatic breakthrough.


If you need a breakthrough, prepare and work for it. When you are praying for anything, work towards it also. To have a breakthrough, we must work towards the breakthrough and breakthrough does not happen over night. It begins with a step.  It might get tough along the way but always know that  getting tougher means you are getting closer to your breakthrough and the things you have been praying for.


Every breakthrough begins with a step. It does not happen overnight. When things get tough, we must toughen up.


There are times when we might feel like we are giving it all, but still we are not seeing the desired results. Please keep going.


The secret of this is to work towards it. We have to persevere and to Not Give Up.”


“Some people wait for that big breakthrough,while other people work for that big breakthrough. Which one are you?”


Work towards your breakthrough. What you are passing through, is not where God is taking you to. They are the things you have to pass along the way towards the destiny call.


He will see you through. So, strive through the journey, hold on, work hard, until your breakthrough.”  May God see you through all life challenges Amen.
