7 Steps to Your Breakthrough

STEP #1 – ELIMINATE HINDRANCES

Make sure to deal with any hindrances that could block God’s healing power or other blessings. Ask the Holy Spirit to convict you of such things as unbelief… unforgiveness… pride… sin… generational sins … poor choices … and fear.

STEP #2 – WORSHIP

Worship will help you focus your eyes on the Lord and receive His perfect peace (Isaiah 26:3). Jesus is “the author and finisher of our faith” (Hebrews 12:2), and it’s crucial to make sure you are looking to Him instead of relying on your own strength.

STEP #3 – PRAY THE WORD

Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you to Scripture promises concerning your health or any other area of your life that needs a breakthrough. Declare those promises throughout the day to strengthen you when you’re feeling sick or weary and are tempted to be hopeless about your situation.

STEP #4 – WAGE SPIRITUAL WAR

Be aware of Satan’s strategies to rob you of your health or other blessings (John 10:10). Make sure you put on the whole armor of God to resist him (Ephesians 6:14-17). Be confident you can overcome the enemy’s attacks by the mighty spiritual weapons God has given you (2 Corinthians 10:4). Remember: When your life is submitted to God’s authority, you can tell the devil, “Stay out of my life!”—and he must flee (James 4:7).

STEP #5 – ASK GOD FOR WISDOM

Solomon advised us to “get wisdom” (Proverbs 4:7). Your doctor or well-meaning friends may all have opinions about what you should do to remedy your situation, but make sure you are asking God to reveal His instructions for your turnaround. Let His peace steer your heart every step of the way (Colossians 3:15).

STEP #6 –TOUCH HIM BY FAITH

As your Jehovah-Rapha, God is the one who heals ALL your diseases (Psalm 103:3). As your Jehovah-Jireh, He’s the one who promises to provide for all your needs (Genesis 22:14, Philippians 4:19). Follow the example of the woman who was healed of a hemorrhage when she took a step of faith to reach out and touch Jesus’ garment by faith (Mark 5:24-34). He is with you right now, and you can reach out and touch Him, asking for the miracle you need!

STEP #7 –PRAISE HIM FOR HEALING

Remember the example of King Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles 20:1-30. Praise the Lord in advance for the victory—even before you see it come to pass!
