GOD’S WAYS AND GOD’S ACTS III
Success in-spite of prevailing problems is possible; advancement in-spite of opposing forces is achievable, outstanding progress irrespective of natural, satanic, or any other kind of limitation is accessible. That is what is called a supernatural breakthrough. Supernatural breakthrough is not just desirable, it is sweet!
Supernatural breakthrough is an act of God made manifest not just to show the sovereignty of God but orchestrated in response to the ways of God. In other words, supernatural breakthrough (just like any other act of God) can be worked out following scriptural principles.
God’s way that provokes God’s act of supernatural breakthrough is prompt and total obedience to direct instruction from God. The following Bible story gives a clear picture of this:
“And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he stood by the lake of Gennesaret, and saw two ships standing by the lake: but the fishermen were gone out of them, and were washing their nets. And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people out of the ship. Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing, nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they inclosed great multitudes of fishes: and their net brake. And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships so that they began to sink.” – Luke 5:1-7
Peter had direct instructions from Jesus. In other words, Jesus made known His ways that leads to supernatural breakthroughs known unto Peter, and Peter responded positively. Those that know and walk in the ways of God have positioned themselves to see the acts of God.
Jesus Christ has direct instruction for all believers today; He is saying to you: “Give me your ship, let down your nets and become a fisher of men for me”. This is God’s “way” that provokes God’s acts of supernatural breakthrough. Giving your whole being to soul winning and soul establishment is putting yourself on the line for supernatural breakthrough.
While it is good and scriptural to pray; it is wisdom to know God’s ways so as to be able to command His acts without sweat.
