Since Walls are unhealthy mindsets, the solution will involve adopting healthy mindsets. It’s a process that will take place inside of us.
Once you understand what Walls are made of, the definition of Faith Breakthroughs becomes easy to understand:
A Faith Breakthrough is the process of moving past your Wall by discovering, choosing, and sharing God’s promises.
Of course, we need to view Faith Breakthroughs in two ways:
- First, since all of us face Walls, we all need to pursue the power of a Faith Breakthrough for ourselves.
- Second, every parent must lead their children on a pathway toward experiencing Faith Breakthroughs in their own lives.
In Romans 12:2, we are encouraged to be transformed by renewing our minds. Choosing not to conform to the pattern of this world is not a matter of breaking bad habits. It’s about being transformed by changing how we think. The goal is not to fix our circumstances, but for us to know God and become more like Jesus. As Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:16, one of the gifts of salvation is “the mind of Christ.”
In 2 Peter 1:3-4 we discover the essential principles about overcoming Walls:
3 By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. 4 And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires.
Notice that, at the very end of verse 4, we are told why the blessings God gives us are so critical: they help us escape the world’s “corruption” – bad behavior, compromise, and even outside circumstances. Notice that these begin with “human desires” – unhealthy mindsets. Are you noticing a pattern?
God wants us to experience the thrill of living by faith – of walking in the promises He has made us, and changing our minds in the areas where we have been emotionally and spiritually stuck.
Isn’t it time for you to experience a Faith Breakthrough?
