“Levels of success”
NAS 2 Sam 5:19 Then David inquired of the LORD, saying, “Shall I go up against the Philistines? Wilt Thou give them into my hand?” And the LORD said to David, “Go up, for I will certainly give the Philistines into your hand.” 20 So David came to Baal-perazim, and defeated them there; and he said, “The LORD has broken through my enemies before me like the breakthrough of waters.” Therefore he named that place Baal-perazim.
Baal-perazim means “Lord of the breakings through”
BARRIERS – (Fences, obstacles, walls, blockades, obstructions)
NIV 1 Thess 2:18 For we wanted to come to you—certainly I, Paul, did, again and again—but Satan blocked our way.
NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD. (Mark 9:23, Luke 18:27)
THE GREATEST BREAKTHROUGH EVER WAS JESUS ON THE CROSS
2 Cor 6:2 “Today is the day of salvation” – That includes deliverance
REASONS WHY PEOPLE DON’T EXPERIENCE BREAKTHROUGHS
THE AVERAGE BELIEVER CANNOT PROVE WHY THEY BELIEVE WHAT THEY BELIEVE.
THE AVERAGE BELIEVER ALLOWS THEIR EXPERIENCES, CIRCUMSTANCES TO ESTABLISH (SHAPE) THEIR THEOLOGY AND DIRECTION
IF YOU ARE GOING TO GET A BREAKTHROUGH IN FINANCIAL BARRIERS YOU HAVE GOT TO BE EQUIPPED WITH THE INFORMATION THAT WILL HELP YOU PUSH THROUGH.
THERE IS A PUSH THROUGH ASPECT
OUR GOAL IS TO GET TO A PLACE OF FAITH SO WE CAN MOVE OUT!
Josh 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.
PROSPEROUS MEANS; TO BREAK FORTH AND MOVE FORWARD
3 LEVELS OF SUCCESS
SUCCESS AT THE LOWEST LEVEL…
WE LIVE OUR LIVES WITH AN EYE ON OUR SECURITY SO WHEN WE GET TO THE PLACE OF RETIREMENT WE’LL BE OK.
Ex. THE GOV PLAN – SOCIAL SECURITY…
THIS IS A DANGEROUS LEVEL OF SUCCESS.
YOU CANNOT AFFORD FOR THIS TO BE YOUR GOAL IN LIFE
YOU WILL NEVER GET TO SURPLUS IF YOU ARE UNWILLING TO RISK SECURITY.
LIFE BECOMES MORE ABOUT OTHERS THAN JUST YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
IF YOU’RE JUST LIVING IN SECURITY YOU WON’T HAVE A MINDSET TO LIVE IN SURPLUS.
TO RECEIVE BREAKTHROUGHS WE HAVE TO START THINKING DIFFERENT.
