2 Samuel 5: 20 “So David went to Baal Perazim, and David defeated them there; and he said, “The Lord has broken through my enemies before me, like a breakthrough of water.” Therefore he called the name of that place Baal Perazim.”
This month is the month of breakthroughs. Breakthrough is one of the attributes of miracles, signs, wonders and surprises. It is a month when the Lord will cause you to break through walls of opposition that stand between you and His plans for you. He will make all grace abound towards you and give you victory in your battles.
King David experienced a breakthrough when the Philistine armies came against him in the Valley of Rephaim. The Valley of Rephaim spanned a length of 3 miles and a width of 2 miles – a large place. The Philistine forces were spread all over that space in a massive and intimidating military deployment. Every space in the valley was taken, leaving David and his army little space to maneuver. Then David sought the Lord and received his winning strategy. Against all odds, David was able to break through a 3 mile deep military formation to scatter the Philistines. He called the battle grounds the place of God’s Breakthrough. In a place totally occupied by the enemy, God paved a way for him.
This month, as you face you own ‘Valley of Rephaim’, remember David. In the face of formidable odds, seek for God’s guidance and strategic direction; seek for divine counsel and walk in God’s wisdom. As you do, you will also experience your own breakthrough. Yes, the enemy forces will set themselves against you, but you will breakthrough them. Don’t fear the things you see and the things you hear. The Lord is with you. He will take you into battle and bring you back in victory. Seek Him and trust Him. In this month, you will break through in Jesus’ name.
Prayer: Father, cause me to run through the enemy’s troops and leap over walls of opposition.
