Isaiah 28verse21 ‘For the Lord shall rise up as in mount Perazim, he shall be wroth as in the valley of Gibeon, that he may do his work, his strange work; and bring to pass his act, his strange act.
There are several names by which God reveals himself to us in the Bible and one of such names (as we can see from our text scripture) is the name “Lord of Breakthrough or Master of Breakthroughs”. This is the same name he revealed to David in 1Chronicles 14verse11-12. The name that God often reveals himself shows us what he is capable of doing in our lives and situation. So, in this case, Jehovah wants you to encounter him as the lord of breakthroughs, but to know the lord of breakthroughs, you need to have the right kind of attitude. I know you desire breakthroughs in different areas of your life but your attitude has to be right. So what kind of attitude do you need to possess if the Lord of Breakthroughs will show up mightily in your life?
1. Come prepared. How prepared are you to meet God? At times we have not really prepared ourselves for an encounter with God. And preparation is crucial if you will really experience God’s Glory.Acts4v12: Pro16v1
2. Be willing to comply with divine instructions. God is in the business of giving out instructions and commands, but most of the time, we miss out on his instructions. If you are not willing to obey his instructions, then you are simply saying that you are not ready for breakthroughs because it’s obedience to divine instructions that make you a commander in life. Ps95v7: Deut28v1-2. So are you willing to obey his instructions?
3. Be expectant. Expectations are the mother of manifestations. My dear reader, what is your expectation like or where are your expectations? You will always receive what you earnestly or strongly expect! Lk1v38.Blessed are those who are not expecting anything, for they shall not be disappointed and for those who are expecting something, their expectations won’t be cut off. So my dear reader, keep your expectations high. Never say never! God is able to exceed all your Expectations! Your breakthrough is on the way! If you are ready for this, say a big amen.

Prayer for Today: Heavenly Father, I desire an encounter with you as the lord of breakthroughs in Jesus name, amen.
CONFESSION: I recognize Jehovah as the Lord of Breakthroughs! He is the master of breakthroughs. This is why I will not be stranded! As I play my part in experiencing his breakthroughs, my life is filled with testimonies all the way!
