Waiting on breakthrough??
Updated: Apr 30, 2022
I was overweight for a very long time. I got to the point where I 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 realized that I wasn't committed. I wasn't committed to a plan or anything 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 would 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. I kept that plan for six months. When six months hit, I evaluated my growth. So I kept the program for a whole year. At the end of that year, the Lord broke the weight plaque!
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 I can tell you 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 he wants you to grow in and be more assertive? But instead of being stronger, you're complaining to people. We often 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 overwhelming. Go to the Lord and ask, "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 see the same view repeatedly. Other times, we have to admit that we got to transform ourselves from the inside out to change our perspective.

For now, be blessed and be a blessing.
