"Breakthrough" is a common term among believers. Most of us would say we're seeking breakthrough in one or more areas of our lives. But what does that word mean in the spiritual realm?
Rebecca Greenwood, president and co-founder of Christian Harvest International and Strategic Prayer Apostolic Network, unpacks this term on her Victorious Prophetic Warfare podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network. "We all know that the Lord is looking for people and sons and daughters who are going to be ones of perseverance, and He is looking for those who will faithfully seek Him in their lives to fully become everything He wants them to be, but also to execute His plans of breakthrough," she says. "Whether you're called to have influence in a family, in a business, in government, in arts and entertainment, in media, in the church, whether you are called to these spheres or wherever the Lord has called you. He wants each of us to be kingdom influencers, and to hear His plan of breakthrough."
So what does it mean to be a person of breakthrough? Greenwood explains that Webster's Dictionary defines the term as "a strikingly important advance or discovery in any field of knowledge or activity. ... It is the act, the result or place of breaking through against resistance, as in warfare."
Greenwood adds that "when you're a person of breakthrough ... when you're functioning in that inheritance, in that kingdom influence, you will affect individuals, you can affect churches, you can affect cities, you can affect your sphere of influence. And when we bring His presence with us into every area that He has called us to, we are going to see results in people; we're going to see results in those spheres that He has called us into. We're going to see results in our personal lives as we grow with Him."
