Sowing the Seeds of Breakthrough by Caleb Wampler

What areas of life are you lacking breakthrough in? Are you praying for a financial miracle, or a healing? I'm not sure what you are contending for, maybe there are dreams and desires in your heart that have not yet come to pass. Throughout the timeline of one's life, there are always areas that we are standing in the gap for. It could be a prophetic word about your destiny or to see a lost family member come to know Jesus. For many people, it's probably multiple different things.

What areas of life are you lacking breakthrough in? Are you praying for a financial miracle, or a healing? I’m not sure what you are contending for, maybe there are dreams and desires in your heart that have not yet come to pass. Throughout the timeline of one’s life, there are always areas that we are standing in the gap for. It could be a prophetic word about your destiny or to see a lost family member come to know Jesus. For many people, it’s probably multiple different things.
I think in moments in life we can see ourselves praying and believing for any one of these and probably numerous other things. What I’ve found throughout scripture, is that what you are believing to reap, is what you must first sow. In Genesis 26:12-23 it says, “Isaac planted crops in that land and the same year reaped a hundredfold, because the Lord blessed him. The man became rich, and his wealth continued to grow until he became very wealthy.”
Isaac first had to step out in faith and plant the crops in the fields before he would see the harvest. How can there be a harvest if there isn’t first a seed planted in the ground? When the word of the Lord comes to you, and He tells you to do something you don’t always see how it will end up. I feel strongly from the Lord in this season that He is saying to go out and plant and sow into the fields of harvest you want to reap from.
We are coming into the end-time, billion-soul harvest, and there must be a church that is ready to sow in abundance to see the whole earth filled with the glory of God. Isaac planted crops in the land and in the same year reaped a hundredfold return, because the Lord blessed him. If you want God to bless the work of your hands, then sow into what He has put before you.
What is going on at your church right now? Are they raising money to help refugees in Ukraine? Is your church raising money for a new building or to help the children’s ministry? I don’t know what fields are put before you right now, but I believe that as you faithfully sow your tithe and offering in abundance that you will see a harvest.
Maybe you’re reading this, and you have been standing for a long time to see a healing in your body come to pass. Let me ask you, how many people are you praying for everyday? Are you praying for healing for your neighbor, or the person you see in the grocery store? Start sowing seeds of healing to those around you and watch what God does in your life. The same can be said for your family member. Maybe you have a prodigal son or daughter, and you are praying God sends someone to them to share the gospel. Are you doing this in your daily life for the other prodigal children out there?
This truly is much easier than we sometimes realize. When you give, it is given unto you. The Bible says it is your Father’s great pleasure to give you the Kingdom. Sow into those fields of destiny today and I am praying you reap a hundredfold return in Jesus’ name.
Among the most beautiful facets of following God is the profound obscurity unique to His ways. Look at Elijah the prophet, whom God used to glorify His name with an extraordinary roster of miracles. For example, Elijah's prayers sealed the heavens so they would not bring rain (1 Kings 17:1; Jas. 5:17). Following that, not only did he raise a child from the dead in 1 Kings 17:22, but he also called down fire from heaven during a showdown with the prophets of Baal in 1 Kings 18:38, to name just a few.
I hear the Lord saying, "I'm releasing my people from bondage!" As I waited on the Lord, I felt a deep overwhelming love fill my heart for people. I was taken into a vision and saw chains and very large bags being carried over the shoulders by millions of people off into the distance. It appeared that they were doing very hard labor, similar to slave labor as I've often imagined the people of Israel when enslaved to the Egyptians during the time of Moses.
Proverbs 4:20-27 includes seven verses that are a written revolution if we walk in them: "My child, pay attention to what I say. Listen carefully to My Words. Don't lose sight of them. Let them penetrate deep into your heart for they bring life to those who find them in healing to their whole body. Guard your heart above all else for it determines the course of your life. Avoid all perverse talk. Stay away from corrupt speech. Look straight ahead and fix your eyes on what lies before you. Mark out a straight path for your feet and stay on the safe path. Don't get side-tracked and keep your feet from following evil."
