Part 4:  Pressure Comes Strongest Before The Breakthrough!  By Karen Rowe

 

Continuing on from yesterday’s Hope in Today Ministries, Devotion to God’s Holy Word:  How Do We Agree With God? Part 3, By Karen Rowe

We were just wondering, have you agreed with God that Jesus was and is and is yet to come?

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed

(as Written in Isaiah 53:5, KJV).”

 

Good Morning Dear Friends,

By now, I hope you have read the Intro, Part 1, 2 and yesterday’s Hope in Today Ministries, Devotion to God’s Holy Word:  Part 3, How do we agree with God.

We were wondering what you thought about “How do we agree with God?  We were wondering what your thoughts were on Isaiah Chapter 6.  What did this mean to you to read, how do we agree with God?  Can you share your views of, how you have come in to agreement with God?

Friends, If you were to sum up the Bible, could you agree that God’s message to us says, that we agree with God when we obey Him?

Now, we can begin.

Now, we can begin.  Please help me by what I am about to say.  Don’t we have to know the stance Jesus took in this world in God’s viewpoint before we can be sure we are agreeing with God?  Let me explain.  How would you define the relevance of your opinion about any world event going on out there in the world?

Let it begin with me.  The Lord has shown me that I had an opinion based on what God views as right and wrong, but still I was wrong, because my opinion stopped me from praying; because could I have been judging?

 

Oh goodness!  Did I just open up a can of worms?

Friends, I promise you, that if you endure through this, peace will be with you in the end.  I say this, because I have agreed with God.  I believe.  But what you believe, will be still between you and God.  So please just ease on through this … and let us begin together in Christ … with;

Well what does the Bible say?

It is written in Romans 14:10, KJV,

“But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.”

And remembering the title God gave us for Today:  The Pressure comes strongest before Break-Thru.

It is also written in Luke 18:9,

“ To some who trusted in their own righteousness and viewed others with contempt,

[The KJV uses the words, “and despised others”],

He also told this parable: 

Pause and take time, we’ve got the time …

the parable in Luke

Chapter 18:  BEGINNING in verse 9 and 10.

 

Did you go read that parable?  Welcome back if you did!  We would love to hear your reflections in how you agreed with God.

Continuing on …

And, it is written in Matthew 7:1, “Do not judge, or you will be judged.”

 

It is also written in Luke 16:15:  “So He said to them, “You are the ones who justify yourselves before men, but God knows your hearts. For what is prized among men is detestable before God.”

detestable?  That is a strong word.

Jesus’ Point?

“But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour?”
And, it is found written in Luke 10:29.

Pause to go read Luke 10:

and for the sake of valuing your time …

Luke Chapter 10 verse 36, 37 read:

36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

37 And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

 

We were just wondering, what thinkest thou? Have you agreed with God about who is your neighbor?  because, my dear friends, forgiveness and mercy is where God begins to set our heart’s free!  And, what Jesus sets free; is free indeed!  Glory Hallelujah!

Can you share with us some ways …

that you have agreed with God

  1. Have you agreed with God:  that Jesus is a good teacher?
  2. Have you agreed with God that Jesus qualified as the Savior;
  3. Have you agreed with God that He has sent JESUS to the world?
  4. Have you agreed with God to show Mercy on __________?
  5. Have you agreed with God enough to ask God if your opinion agrees with Him.
  6. Have you agreed with God that Jesus is Lord?
  7. Have you agreed with God to ask God:  Who is him / her that has fell among the thieves?
  8. Have you agreed with God to ask God:  What does this even mean?
  9. Lord, I pray for Your revelation of Jesus to come to our heart;
  10. that …When we agree with YOU Father God; to obey what you say …
  11. Have you agreed with God that Jesus is the Resurrection?
  12. Have you agreed with God that He can open the eyes of the Blind; that Once we see and understand what love is …
  13. that we can do as Jesus also teaches:   To Pray for them instead of ___ …?

Let us pray:

After this manner therefore pray ye:

Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

11 Give us this day our daily bread.

12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

 

Have you agreed with God to :

“Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17, KJV).”

 

What was so special about that low flowing cloud? or the Rainbow that revealed the sun? Or the rainbow that was set before my eyes to see on down the road? Forgiveness & Grace and Mercy is our God.
Lord, I pray you are seen.

The Verse of Today & that Devotion is found written in 1 Corinthians 13:13; and the Hope in Today Ministries, Inc., Daily Devotion  to God’s Holy Word is posted.

  1. And now Abideth Faith:  We have faith to believe! Do we agree with God to Obey?
  2. And now Abideth Hope:  We have hope to believe!  Do we agree with God to Rest in the Hope that is in Christ Jesus our Savior and Lord?  Friends, Jesus doesn’t need me; but I need Him.  That doesn’t demean, that Jesus loves me.  It means, our hope is in Christ Jesus.
  3. And now Abideth Charity:  But how are we demonstrating what Jesus teaches us about God is Love; God is Mercy; God is Grace …  to the world?  Have we agreed with God to abide in love; as God is Love = God with us.

1 John 2:3

“And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.”

  1. God for us.
  2. God with us.
  3. God in us – through and by Jesus, the Christ, the Son of the Living God; Savoir and Lord and King of Kings!

Dear Friends, as the pressure does get strongest right before break-through, will you say it is written (Quoting John 4:16) out loud like 3 times slowly?  till it happens within your heart that when you receive this you will never be the same …

16And 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.

I am just wondering, How have you agreed with God that you dwell in Jesus (the Mind of Christ) to be obedient to God’s Will be done?

Painting a picture

Like this:  If I want to lose weight, and believe that I can; and I even have a plan.  But will that work for me if I give up before I get the 1st break-through?  Just because the pressure gets stronger before the break-through?

Are you feeling it too?  Even in reading this post today.  I feel it:  The Pressure comes strongest before the Break-thru!  But I have read all the way to the prayer at the end.

Let’s continue to press through!  I do feel it too.

Will you agree with God; as with me, as I am having to agree with God as I type this … 

that God will reward those who earnestly seek Him?

 

Because just as you will read in the end, this is no different today.  I don’t want to do this, but because I have agreed with God, I write this for you.  I want to feel a certain way, but because I have agreed with God, I will press through and write this for you! 

 

See?

What are you being called to do that God is simply wanting you to come into agreement with Him to see something in a Break-Through? So that … the love that you know that is living on the inside of you, can be powerful and effective for the work of Christ Jesus that has been ordained to you too … if only you press through to get the break-through from the very thing that is hindering you?

 

I write to you today, because Agreeing with God is Vital!

So that all goes well with you!

And, so that we can serve Jesus in and within God’s Will.

We first have to come into agreement with God; that God has So loved the world ….

 

Pause right here and go read John 3:16 and John  3:17 – Then, when you receive that deeper into your heart; Go read 1 John 4 and Verse 16 again.

 

Faith, Hope Charity …. BUT the greatest of these is Charity.  Have we agreed with God that Love is more powerful that being right; or being heard?

 

Do you agree with God enough to go pray, open His Word, seek and ask God if there is anything in your heart that you need to know that is not found pleasing to Him in your opinion?     Do you agree with God to go and find out what is God really saying to you about how you think or how you feel?

 

And have you agreed with God?  …  that God said, he loves you.

 

Remember the Title of Today’s Devotion?

Hence the Title:  The Pressure Comes Strongest Before Break-Thru!

 

It is written in Luke 16:15,

“So He said to them,

“You are the ones who justify yourselves before men,

but God knows your hearts.

For what is prized among men is detestable before God.”

 

Lord, is there anything prized in me that is detestable to you?

Why do I write to you Today?  Because God loves you.

As you will read,

I had to go through this to get this far.

As you will read, I had to go through this to get this far.  So, please do not take offence to this post.  I am first admitting that I had this judgement in my heart and this is how God freed my heart to pray!  And, then I saw the Lord with me in the clouds; in word, in song and in the spiritual realm, my friends, faith pleases God and with out faith it is impossible  to please God.

Isn’t love about forgiveness?  And, with true forgiveness in our hearts, we can truly love and serve King Jesus well.  Isn’t love about forgiveness & understanding in our hearts that God is right; and our own opinion can be our own worst enemy?

 

Okay, will you pause right here and go make some Bacon for your family?  So you can show / demonstrate God’s love for them.  So you can demonstrate their value to you and to God; in spite of human levels of understanding about what is this obedience to God and …

Truth in Action! God just told me to do so; and so I left this work for HIM to do that other thing well … above all these things put on Charity! What is the difference in this LOVE called Charity, but agreeing with God is love and Jesus is Lord and Savior!

 

I see the Salvation of the Lord working!

Do you too?  I hope so; and if not, this is why I write to you; remember that the pressure gets Strongest Before the Break-through … and the devil doesn’t want you to get freed in Christ, But what does God say?!

Have you agreed with God that He said

He loves you?

 

Have you agreed with God to Pray for God’s will be done?  Have you agreed with God to … be still and know that God is God?  Have you agreed with God to be obedient to God’s will be done on earth as it is in Heaven? … and have you agreed with God to forgive those … as you have agreed with God that you are forgiven; and, as Jesus teaches us what it is to be loved by God.

 

 

You have realized that we are all human; right?  :)  Dear Friends, can you agree that  Distractions are many … ?   Can you agree that the encouragement is to stay focused and steadfast in Christ.?   Even, today, friends, the pressure comes strongest right before break-thru.  But it is my duty to stay focused on Jesus.  Anger will fuel … But what does the Bible say:

 

 “Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath: (Ephesians 4:26, KJV).”

Praise God, I already have another testimony before this writing is even finished.  The Pressure gets strongest before the Break-Thru.  What is the break-thru?    If I can be honest, our minds!  I am still struggling with this post.  But I press on to demonstrate the power of God is with God; not me.  It is His work; not mine, so you see, I press on because I have agreed with God already.

 

See?

Do you see yet, why this is the way it is?

So you see, it is not my duty to convince you, it is my duty to write for you; whether you receive this or not, is not up to me, but to you; as it is to me for me … it is for you for you.  My blessing is in my obedience to the Lord Jesus.  Because by faith, I have agreed with God.  See?   And, I have faith that you will see the Salvation of the Lord working in your own life, just like I experience Jesus changing me for my benefit;

 

Lord, I pray for the one reading this now; that they know and believe in the love you have for them.  And Dear Friends, when you receive this you will never be the same!

 

As for me, I take this very serious:  I have agreed with God :

…and the meek will he teach his way. Psalm 25:8-9 | KJV · righteousness humility. But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in …

Proverbs 1:5 – A wise [man] will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of … and he will be yet wiser: teach a just [man], and he will increase in learning.

 

And, I love you enough, IN CHRIST, to say …

 

What is this love?  What is this love God had for the world that required Jesus to be put to death for us to be able to even know how to die to self!  What is this love that was Resurrected through and my the power of God, so that we could be resurrected by the same rescuing power that never left the Hand of God.

SEE?

 

Everything belongs to God! Everything!  These temporary things going on down here is not out of God’s authority; just out of God’s willingness to control, what Jesus gave us the power to change!

 

Our mind exchanged for the Mind of Christ!

 

What is love?  And How do we agree with God?

when we agree with God,

we obey Him.

The Answer is that when we agree with God, we obey Him.  We can believe in something and not obey it.  But, I was wondering, have you agreed with God that He loves you?

 

We obey Him by our faith in Him.

 

Dear Friends in Christ,

The Holy Spirit is Steady Working the Salvation of the Lord out for us, with us and in us!  How can I agree with God that my sins have been forgiven?  How can I agree with God that He can use this long post to get his simple answer to you?  The answer is by my faith; and I agree with God, and so I obey.  And, history repeats itself, by my experience God always honors faith and obedience to His Holy Word.

But I was wondering

But I was wondering; and it is heavy on my heart to ask you, Have you agreed with God to believe God; that you have not messed up too much to be saved by God’s Grace?  Have you agreed with God that Jesus was beaten for your sins, bruised for your iniquities, and nailed to a cross for your sins to be forgiven?  I was just wondering, have you agreed with God that He has loved you all this time … So MUCH so that He gave His only Begotten Son, Jesus to be put to death for you, to be buried for you; all the while knowing that He would resurrect Jesus for you too!  That should make you shout!  Jesus is THE RESURRECTION!

But have you agreed with God that He is for you; not against; that God knows that your obedience that is by your faith is for you to live and be blessed through and by believing in  Him too?   For all things to go well for you; and for those around you.

 

Isaiah 53:5

“But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.”

 

 

I was just wondering, if you have agreed with God, which is the science behind what it is to Believe God.  What God says is Truth; we just believe.  What Jesus did is Truth; we just believe.  The matter at hand, is I was just wondering if you have agreed with God that he did all this for you!  He did you know; but have you agreed with God?  I was just wondering.

 

Would you be willing to tell us what you have agreed with God about?

Would you be willing to share with me and all the readers here, what has God done for you that you have seen and experienced; now that you have agreed with God; remembering that the enemy of God does not want you to get to this place in Christ.

Hence the title: The Pressure gets strongest before break-through.

If you are feeling the pressure; by faith press on in obedience to the Basics of Jesus.

What is love, but patience and forgiveness and we need God’s Grace to endure both!

Friends, I don’t know who I am writing to, but God knows your situation.  He wants you to agree with Him that He can help you get through this.  God is your Grace to get through.  God is your comfort to get through this.  God is your way to get through this.  And, God is God, who is your Father through this.

 

Now, Painting a Picture of Grace and a Father’s love for you; If your Creator is for you; then what can come against you that He can’t see you through to a better place?  Friend, this is for you!  Agree with God in this moment!  What good things has God promised you?  Let this be your focus; and remember to agree with God to get there … What do you have to agree with God about?

What had you not agreed with God about?  This is the hindrance!  Lord, thank you for that revelation!  Lord, help this person reading this right now to agree with you; and be set free!

 

Friends, I know it is not easy admitting that God could make all of our wrongs into a right; But I have agreed with God.  God Can; God did … And Jesus made it so, all we have to do is believe; which really means agree with God to confess our sins to God; and agree with God that Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life.

Have you agreed with God to do this?

 

I will admit, I have had to agree with God that He counts me worthy just to write to you.  I have agreed with God.  I was just wondering if you have agreed with God too?

Do you believe in God and obey Him?  ….. Scripture ….

 

1 John 2:3

“And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.”

Pause to celebrate Jesus;

and when you return,

this will be waiting on you.

God bless you my dear friends, in Christ!

 

And, when you return:  This is where you left off.

 

Intro into Part 4: 

What Reflections did you draw from Matthew Chapter 13:24-30; & 36-43 ?

What Reflections have you drawn from 2 Corinthians Chapter 10

Did you receive what Isaiah says to you too written in Isaiah Chapter 6? 

 

Have you paused to hear God’s Word Read Aloud to your spirit in a Quiet Spot …

– 1 Peter Chapter 4 all the way through Revelations Chapter 22, where the Word of God cannot fast-forward anymore; but only to Agree with God all the way in the Word of God from Genesis to Revelations!

 

Who is this God whom helps us come into agreement with Him – that is through and by the Revelations of Christ Jesus, the Word of God & the Seal of Life on our Foreheads for eternal Life?

Now, Welcome to Part 4:  Pressure Comes Strongest Before The Breakthrough!  By Karen Rowe

 

 

And, what is the Breakthrough?  The Breakthrough is that thing that is hindering you.  The Breakthrough that spirit of __________, what ever it is that is holding you back…. The Reason:  The devil doesn’t want you to be delivered from what it is; the devil does not want you to get break-through.

 

My dear friends in Christ, If you want to overcome )))  your pressure is going to be stronger before you are delivered to your breakthrough.  BUT you can stand.  Whatever your problem is, the pressure is going to come before you breakthrough it.

 

Jesus really does give us HOPE!  And, it is also true the pressure will come strongest before breakthrough, but God will see you through it!

 

God wants all good things to come to you, because God loves you.  Jesus loves you.  But have you agreed with God?  Remember the pressure will be stronger before the breakthrough.

 

Remember the pressure comes strongest before the breakthrough!

 

 

I have learned to recognize the enemy of God wants to destroy the good work of God; and he just uses a different play on our emotions that’s all.

 

I always say, the devil has the same tactics / same bag of tricks; he just knows when to pull out a different truth in our heart that is a weak link … our emotional point we are dwelling on  / but may I go ahead and correct that word to GROWING IN ?

 

…Late last Sunday night, I was tempted by the enemy to delete every thing I know I shared by God’s grace….Of course I didn’t!  I heard the enemy say some negative things to me.  BUT GOD!   All I did was resist the devil; and he fleed.

 

You know the devil “has a fleA right?”

LOL  Get it?  The Devil has to flee!

Well I believe you won’t get that out of your head anytime soon; I hope, because resist the devil in Jesus Name; and the devil will flee!

 

And, if you are being tempted to throw away something God has given you too, may I encourage you to wait upon the LORD – Till the Morning Light shines upon your situation!

 

See?

 

How we feel effects how we think & how we think effects how we feel.

 

I am sharing today to give you Hope in God’s understanding for you too!

 

Thank God He trains us not to give up on agreeing with God, until the Revelation comes in the morning!  Does that make sense?  In other words, we don’t always know what to do, but if we seek the thoughts of God sincerely agreeing with God, that God is God and Jesus is our Lord, He will cause our thoughts to become agreeable with His will.

 

See?  Jesus is not an emotion!  Jesus is not an opinion! Jesus is not even an option!

Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the LIFE – And Jesus had / has Eternal on His mind for you!

 

What does the Bible say?

Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.

THAT!

 

Final words that is so important.

 

We all have a little bit right & a little bit wrong if we are only seeing from one end of the spectrum.

 

Jesus is the One true light & Jesus illuminates all views and in due time.

 

 

 

Don’t give up – Remember the pressure gets stronger right before breakthrough!

 

What was so special about that low flowing cloud? or the Rainbow that revealed the sun? Or the rainbow that was set before my eyes to see on down the road? Forgiveness & Grace and Mercy is our God.
Lord, I pray you are seen.

 

Pray with me?

Pray with me?

Lord, I come to you admitting I need Jesus. Lord thank you Jesus for taking that beating for me. Thank you Jesus for taking that bruising for me. Thank you for going to that cross for me. God, help me to see! Am I loving those you love like Jesus commanded me to love? Am I completely trusting you Jesus to pray, even, God give me the strength to accept your will. Father you see all the opinions down here. Now, in this very hour, I take every thought captive to pray for those Jesus puts on my heart to pray for. I speak in Jesus Name to bind every attempt of the devil to divide our Nation & our Church. Father, Satan didn’t like it when he sAw the churches coming together, so he tried to divide us by wearing a mask & those who don’t. When that didn’t work, we continued to praise YOUR Name that we WILL love each other. And Satan didn’t like that either, so he tried to pull out hate. Satan tried to divide race against race, innocent against PeaCe-keepers, rioters as peaceful and violent & notion against notion. But praise God; your Church stands in Christ Jesus, the Savior & Lord! Father, may we see the Salvation of the Lord working out in these situations! Open the eyes of your people & Jesus reveal your self to those who haven’t known you. Lord, this I pray & believe. I agree with God & I believe to obey you King Jesus. JESUS, Lord of my mind, heart & very soul. Amen

 

Please forgive any edits undone, but be sure I am going to rest now.

The only thing we need to be assured of is that we are not left undone. But that we have come to agree with God, that God is God and Jesus is Lord.

 

Matthew 23:23

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

Love in Christ,

Next articleMy Flag Day Thoughts
Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
