"I Can Do All Things Through Christ Who Strengthens Me”- Philippians 4:13.
We are running the race which has set before us , moving full-speed ahead with God’s blessing overtaking us in every step. Then suddenly we hit the wall. It may be a wall of sickness or financial trouble, of spiritual failure or family problems. But, regardless of the form it takes, the effect of “the wall” is always the same. It makes us cold.
The question is, once WE hit a wall like that, what will you do?
We will be tempted to quit, to turn back in defeat. But don’t do it. Because God will enable us to break through that wall and keep on going.
I’m not going to tell you that it’s easy but the truth is, it’s really tough. But we must push on through the tough times if we are ever going to have a breakthrough in our life.
Talk to an Athlete, He will tell us why we should not quit, Because he’s a winner, he’s been there. He has pushed his body to his maximum ability. His side might have hurt. His lungs have ached. He might had cramps in his legs and thighs. And just when he felt like he could not go on, he has heard his coach yell at him, “Come, Move on!”
Athletes call that “Breaking through the wall.” It’s a time when the body says, “That’s it. That’s all I can do. I can’t go any further. I can’t go any faster. I quit.”
But an athlete knows that “the wall” isn’t the end. It’s a signal that he is on the way to a breakthrough. If he push himself a little more, he will be a winner. So he will go faster than before. He will reach a level of excellence he couldn’t have reached any other way.
When we feel the worst, when the failure is breathing down our neck, meditate the Word like never before. We may meditate on a particular scripture for days and even weeks sometimes, trying to get a revelation out of it, seemingly without any success. Then suddenly, like the dawn of the morning, light will come pouring in. You will see the way to break through. All we have to do is to punch one little hole in that wall of problems, dig one tiny hole in it with our faith and with the Word of God.
Then keep tearing away at that hole. Don’t quit because, the forces of God will come bursting through, demolishing every obstacle in their path!
When it happens We will never be the same and we will be hooked. It will only take one breakthrough like that to make a never-dying, never-quitting champion out of us.Amen
