Waiting on breakthrough??
Updated: Dec 13, 2020
I was overweight for a very long time. I got to the point where I kind of just didn't want to try anymore. I was praying to God and I'm just trying to figure out, what I was doing wrong? As I was praying, I was like, “Lord, you have given me victory in so many things in my life. Why won't you give me victory in this thing? I don't understand.” In my spirit, I felt the Lord telling me “You're not committed to consistency.” As I sat on that for a while, I reflected and realized that I wasn't committed. I wasn't committed to a plan nor committed to anything that actually was beneficial for me. I was doing this weight loss thing out of convenience, not commitment.
I wanted to see changes in my life. I wanted to see changes in my weight. I had to stay committed to something that was going to yield results. I couldn't try this and try that. I had to stick with something that was going to last longer than a few weeks. I decided to choose one thing to be consistent about. That allowed me to build a foundation to keep another thing to be consistent about. I kept that plan for six months. When six months hit, I did an evaluation of my growth. So I kept the plan for a whole year. At the end of that year, the Lord broke weight...the weight that I have not been able to break on my own for about seven years.
So what does that mean for you? I don't know what you're going through. I don't know what situations you're facing right now. I don't know how many hours of prayer you've spent in it. But what I can tell you is that if you are in that situation and you find yourself having zero victories it's time to do an evaluation. Are you being consistent? Is the Lord giving you something that he wants you to grow in and be stronger in? But instead of being stronger, you're complaining to people. A lot of times we have problems and instead of crying out to the Lord, we’ll complain to our family and friends.
So my challenge to you is whatever circumstance you're facing right now, whatever situation you feel is just overwhelming. Go to the Lord and ask him, what am I doing wrong? What am I not getting? Then allow the Lord to speak to you.
Sometimes we have to go around the mountain several times to realize that we're seeing the same view over and over again. Other times we have to come to the realization that in order for us to change the view, we got to change ourselves from the inside out.
