Engaging The Power Of Love For Supernatural Breakthrough! By Bishop David Oyedepo
Topic: Engaging The Power Of Love For Supernatural Breakthrough!
WELCOME to the concluding part of this teaching! I hope you were blessed by last week teaching. This week, we shall focus on: Engaging the Power of Love for Supernatural Breakthrough!
From Scriptures, we understand that God’s breakthrough agenda covers all areas of life. As it is written, And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28). The second part of that scripture is referring to our redemption, the Bible says, Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified (Romans 8:30). Thus, we have all been freely justified by the blood of Jesus, but among the justified, all things are ordained to keep working together for their good. All things include: spiritual, financial, health, family, business, and career things. Therefore, we cannot suffer breakdown with the love of God burning in our hearts; His proven love makes us breakthrough personalities. God cannot prosper a man that has no heart for Him; He checks our hearts to determine what we can successfully carry in our hands without losing our souls (Jeremiah 17:10). Furthermore, we must also understand that breakthrough will only deliver by faith, and faith will not deliver beyond the level of our love for God (Matthew 9:29). Therefore, pursuing after God and the interest of His Kingdom, which is the capital proof of our love for God, is what makes a believer a breakthrough personality.
Then, what is in Love that Engenders Supernatural Breakthrough?
1. It is the Breeding Ground for Strong Faith:
Strong faith is a product of a large heart for God and it comes from unusual insight into the Word (John 15:15). Concerning Abraham, the Bible says, He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform (Romans 4:20-21). Love provides us access to unusual insight that makes strong men and enable them operate in the realm of strong faith (Deuteronomy 29:29). Thus, it is not how hard we work but how much our hearts are connected to God. With our love for God, we cannot be taken for a ride by the devil (Matthew 22:37-40).
2. It Empowers us for Delightsome and Tireless Obedience:
Every provision of the Kingdom is only accessible through obedience of faith. However, it is love that empowers us to obey God in season and out of season (1 John 5:3). When we delight in obeying God, love is speaking in our inside. Abraham is a perfect example of delightsome obedience. At seventy-five, God told him to leave his father’s house and without knowing where he was going, he left (Genesis 12:1-4). He was a hundred years old when he had his son and after waiting that long, the Lord asked him to sacrifice Isaac. Without having a conversation with Sarah, he went on that journey the following morning and as a result, he secured transgenerational blessings that is still speaking today (Genesis 22:1-3). Love is like a lubricant; it empowers our obedience with uttermost ease.
3. Love makes Believers Indestructible:
Love is the strongest life insurance. As it is written, And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him (1 John 4:16). When we dwell in love, we are hid in God and He is hid in us; so, we are wrapped up with God. That means, when there is something inside that wants to destroy us, God inside us will fight it and if there is anything outside, God outside will deal with it. Also, as we grow in love, we grow into the length, breadth, height, and the depth of the love of God and as such, we are filled with all the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:18-19). With the love of God at work in the lives of the three Hebrews boys, the fire had no effect on them (Daniel 3:16-28). Love is indestructible (Song of Solomon 8:6-7). One of the addicted lovers of Christ in the New Testament was Paul the Apostle, he died so many times but they did not bury him. He was lost in the deep one night and one day, but he came out and went about his business (2 Corinthians 11:25). They stoned him and left him to die, but he stood and left for his next assignment (Acts 14:19-20). Thus, when we are genuinely in love with God, we become indestructible.
In conclusion, without a heart for God, we cannot enjoy supernatural breakthrough in our endeavours. However, it is not enough to be in love; we must stay and grow in love. Therefore, to enjoy supernatural breakthrough, you must be born again. If you are not, this is an opportunity to do so. Simply say the following prayer:
Lord Jesus, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins. Cleanse me with Your precious Blood. Today, I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Thank You Jesus for saving me! Now, I know I am born again!
