Hebrews 4:10-14; Romans 6:6-14, 7:14-25

A breakthrough is an important discovery that happens after trying for a long time to understand or explain something.  Something that changes the course of your life going forward and ensures that things will never be the same for you again. Most of what a breakthrough requires is for you to have the courage and the bravery to stops settling for second best.

 As followers of Jesus, we must look beyond people, things, and circumstances to meet our needs. All of these are unstable and inadequate, and if we depend on them, we will fail. Moving in the direction of the flesh will not meet our needs; at best it can only provide a deceptive facade of security and significance. Instead, we must dare to believe that if everything else is taken away, our God is enough.  Why then do so many believers continue to act as nonbelievers when it comes to the quest for security, meaning, and fulfillment in life? The answer lies in the fact that we are opposed by three powerful forces: the flesh, the World, and the devil (Kenneth Boa, Conformed to His Image).
