Waiting for Your Breakthrough for Long?

Waiting for Your Breakthrough for Long?

Daughters of the most High God, there must be several things or areas we are waiting on God for in our lives. And if we’ve been waiting for quite some time, it becomes difficult to believe that breakthroughs can happen to us. Someone else? Yes, but me? Not sure!

When nothing seems to work..

There was a time in my life when nothing seemed to work. Doors that I thought would open for me never opened. Many times, I found myself weeping with a broken heart in front of closed doors.


Grieve came in waves when the realisation hit that I’d been chasing after dreams never meant for me. My heart regretted thinking about the time I wasted sincerely trying to walk in areas not meant for me in the first place.

While I prayed with all my heart for others to receive their breakthroughs and witnessed one friend after the other stepping into the choice of their career, stepping into new lands with dreams, hopes and excitement, here I was year after year, happy for others but crying behind closed doors for myself; everyone’s go-to person for prayer but unable to navigate my own way out.

If I tried taking one step forward, the enemy would try to pull me back 10 steps behind. Lies began to creep into my heart and my mind: maybe my Heavenly Father doesn’t love me; maybe I’m not good enough for Him; maybe there are people much better than me that my Father adores; maybe I’ve been overlooked; maybe, just maybe He left me in a waiting room and simply forgot about me!

As time passed, it became difficult to believe that I could see a light at the end of my tunnel.

When God sends a Deliverer..

“Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them. Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.”
Exodus 3: 9-10 NKJV

We see every time in the Bible when the Lord wanted to deliver His people, He sent a man/woman. When the cries of the children of Israel reached God, He sent Moses to deliver them from the hands of the pharaoh. This principle applies to the people of God even to this day.

Could it be that breakthroughs we wanted stopped short because we couldn’t recognise, were ignorant, hard-hearted or were full of ego to humble ourselves and submit ourselves to the one ‘Sent’ to us? When the Hebrews initially rejected Moses, they had to wait another 40 years to be finally ushered out of Egypt.

“When hope’s dream seems to drag on and on, the delay can be depressing. But when at last your dream comes true, life’s sweetness will satisfy your soul”.
Proverbs 13:12 TPT

After finding myself in a wilderness for several years, the Lord connected me to a stream of which I began to partake of. And the keys to my breakthrough lay in that stream. My breakthrough lay with the ‘Man and Woman of God’ sent to me.

As I began to attend Bible studies, prayer meetings and church service regularly, I often heard the man and woman of God (my spiritual parents) say, ‘Don’t tell me you serve this Jesus and remain jobless.’ They would challenge my understanding and say, “Show me one person in the Bible who served this God and remained poor.”

They would encourage us to focus on building our inner man, to keep building our altars diligently and to focus on our relationship with God, and the rest shall be added unto us.

When dreams finally come true..

And indeed, after less than a year of connecting to that stream, I got a good job. I could financially invest in God’s Kingdom. The chains and shackles the enemy had put on me to keep pulling me behind came down in one full blow. Now, it was my turn to pack my bags and move to a different location with dreams and excitement.

As I entered 2023, my spiritual parents declared that this was the year of possessing the promised land that the Lord was giving us. The Lord put on my heart to set up my own business. For someone who had always lived in the comfort of a meagre monthly salary, it was a leap of faith, but since I’m connected to a ‘house of faith’ (my church), I took the leap and soon got a contract from a production house.

I couldn’t believe it was finally happening to me! Daughter of the most high, take heart: if God did it for me, then He can truly do it for you. For someone like me, the more painful it became waiting in what seemed to be an endless tunnel, the sweeter it became when I stepped out of the tunnel and into the light.

Ask the Lord to show you the Woman / Man of God sent to you because you can go to church all your life and yet remain stuck in the same place for years unless your deliverer brings you out of your Egypt; diligently keep investing financially in the Kingdom, and believe He who promised is truly faithful. In due time, you, too, shall come out of your wilderness. Rest assured, your breakthrough is just around the corner. This Father we serve is too good.

How to Be an Esther in This Generation 👸

How to Be an Esther in This Generation 👸

The Book of Esther is a true story of how a Jewish girl went from the girl next door to the Queen of Persia. There are so many lessons we can learn from the life of Esther to prepare us for a life-changing encounter with the King.

In this post, I want to share 5 lessons I learned from my meditation on the Book of Esther.


1/ Know Your Worth

“So if it please the king, we suggest that you issue a written decree, a law of the Persians and Medes that cannot be revoked. It should order that Queen Vashti be forever banished from the presence of King Xerxes, and that the king should choose another queen more worthy than she.”
Esther 1:19

Our family, friends and society often label us based on what they see on the outside. We often base our worth on what others say about us or how much we have achieved in life. Sometimes, we define ourselves by the mistakes we have made.

However, our true worth is found in nothing but the Word. The Word of God is our mirror of how God sees us and what He says about us. This is where our worth must be found, defined and established.

God sees you beyond just the natural because He is the One who created you. When He looks at you, He doesn’t see a bunch of mistakes. Instead, He sees a daughter washed by the Blood of His Son Jesus.

Know today that you are a queen and you are accepted by the King of kings. In His sight, you are more worthy than any labels put on you by yourself or by the world.

2/ Pursue Purity

“Then the king’s personal attendants proposed, “Let a search be made for beautiful young virgins for the king.”
Esther 2:2

Do you know that when you have surrendered your life to Christ, He calls you a virgin despite any foolish mistake you have made in the past?

“God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”
2 Corinthians 5:21

The temptations of this world may be real, and He understands our weakness. But He is a Holy God, and He wants His children to walk in holiness and purity. May we persevere not only to keep our physical bodies clean but also to keep our hearts clean.

“For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.”
2 Corinthians 11:2

3/ Submitting to God’s authority

“Then the king’s servants who attended him said: “Let beautiful young virgins be sought for the king; and let the king appoint officers in all the provinces of his kingdom, that they may gather all the beautiful young virgins to Shushan the citadel, into the women’s quarters, under the custody of Hegai the king’s eunuch, custodian of the women.”
Esther 2:2-3

Esther couldn’t walk directly into the king’s presence because she wasn’t prepared to meet the king. Before she could meet the king, she had to be placed under the custody/authority of Hegai, the king’s eunuch, who prepared her for 12 months before she met the king.

It is important to submit yourself to the man and women of God whom God has placed over your life. The Bible says in Hebrews 13:17, “Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.”

Self-deception is easy when a Christian does not submit to God’s authority. Find a spirit-led church that can guide you in God’s ways and help you grow in your spiritual life so that you can find and walk in your God destiny. These men and women of God who have gone ahead of you can help you prepare for your encounter with the King of kings.

4/ Embracing the new life

“Esther had not made known her people or kindred, for Mordecai had commanded her not to make it known.”
Esther 2:10

When God calls you into a new life or a new assignment, don’t allow your past or your family background to limit Him from doing what He wants to do in your life.

2 Corinthians 5:17 says, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”

Also, Ephesians 4:24 says, “and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.”

When we understand this, it is easy to bring changes in our lives so that we may reflect Christ and the new life He gives us in every area. May we walk unhindered by the past or our background in this new life God has called us to live.

5/ Trust and win!

After 12 months of preparation, it was finally Esther’s turn to meet the king. And this is what the Bible says:

“the king loved Esther more than all the women, and she won grace and favor in his sight more than all the virgins, so that he set the royal crown on her head and made her queen instead of Vashti.”
Esther 2:17

Wow! This is your story and my story. We are loved, approved and accepted by the King of kings. Be glad and rejoice in this.

Let me declare this about you today- You are loved by the King of kings; you have won grace and favor in His sight more than all your companions, and on your head is a royal crown for you are a daughter of the Most High God.

I pray that you know who you are in Christ, know your worth, find your calling and live worthy of it. Remember, one encounter with the King can change your entire life.

May you have victory in Jesus’ mighty name.

Is My Waiting in Vain or Valuable? ⏳

Is My Waiting in Vain or Valuable? ⏳

“I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, and in His word I put my hope.”
Psalm 130:5

Waiting simply means delaying action until a particular time. Many of us relate the word “waiting” to worry, anxiety, impatience, etc. The truth is no one enjoys waiting; it makes us feel stuck and unable to move ahead.

It is like this- every time we buy a new equipment or gadget, it comes with an instructional manual, and most likely, we skip reading the manual and start using the product because “we just can’t wait.” After a while, though, we find ourselves going back to the manual because we have either messed it up or can’t figure it out.

We often feel that our waiting is in vain and feel the need to act on it quickly. I call it the “just do it, let’s see” syndrome, where we tend to act and then wait for the result, thinking it will somehow work out.


But here is what I realized lately: living on this principle of “just do it, let’s see” means that we have no clue what the future holds and that the only way to live is to take whatever comes your way and work with it.

Ouch! It might seem cool initially, but it usually brings heartbreak, pain, and a feeling of failure. And this feeling of failure will also affect your confidence in decision-making in the long run. And at this point, if someone tells you to wait, you would roll your eyes and say, “No, thank you, it has never worked out.”

Well, it did not work out because we did not wait patiently to read and understand the user manual before we acted upon it.

Our waiting is valuable, not vain!

Genesis 7:24 says that the waters prevailed on earth for 150 days when Noah was in the ark, and if we continue reading Genesis 8, Noah was still waiting. Some say Noah was in the ark for a little shy of a year.

Now, for a second, imagine the end of the story where Noah could not wait anymore and got out of the ark looking for dry land. We would all be fishes, I guess!

What was different in Noah’s waiting?

He knew how the waiting would end; Noah remembered God’s covenant with him.

Girl, can I say this: Noah was not sitting in the ark thinking if he was ever going to see dry land. Because he knew that dry land was a promise, that is why he kept sending a dove out to find if dry land had appeared. His waiting was not in worry, and his actions were not in anxiousness but in rest that there will be dry land.

The Bible says in Isaiah 40:31, “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

Recently, I caught myself anxious and worried about waiting for something. At that time, I was reminded that I already knew how my waiting would end (according to God’s word).

Coming to an understanding that I am not waiting clueless for the universe to throw something at me at random, but knowing the victory is mine made me change the way I started waiting.

Here are 2 things I started doing to change my waiting from vain to valuable:

1/ Replace worry and anxiety with declaring the Word of God

When I get thoughts about the future and worry starts to take over, I quickly remind myself that the waiting is temporary and that the God I serve is good. He has a great plan for me and is faithful to finish what He started in me. Isaiah 35:4 (The Message version) has become my daily reminder to encourage myself that my God is not done with me yet:

“Energise the limp hands, strengthen the rubbery knees. Tell fearful souls, “Courage! Take heart! God is here, right here,on His way to put things right and redress all wrongs. He’s on his way! He’ll save you!”

2/ Wait in preparation and not hopelessness

The parable in Matthew 25 about the 5 wise virgins and 5 foolish virgins tells us that in our waiting, we must be prepared for the day of our breakthrough. In my understanding, the difference between the two sets of virgins is that the 5 foolish virgins were waiting in hopelessness, basically taking a chance.

They were waiting with an attitude, “If it happens, great; if it does not, I will go back to my old life.” I believe they knew very well how long their oil would last, but they did not believe the waiting would end well.

The Holy Spirit reminds me constantly that I need to add value to my waiting.

A few years ago, I desperately wanted a promotion. Someone told me if you want a promotion, then dress, talk, and act like you have already got one. Let me tell you, this change did not happen overnight; I did not just wake up the next day differently. That is because I hardly had any information about the role I wanted. I had to invest time knowing the skills required for the position and then start to learn and apply them until one day I fit the job perfectly. And that is when I got the promotion.

In the book Silent Season, the author Heather Lindsey shares a powerful key. She says, “I learned something very valuable in a silent season and that is that I shouldn’t be trying to build something when I was supposed to be cultivating my spirit. I was supposed to use that season to spend time with God, grow, and rest in Him – not step out on faith and try to do something out of His timing.”

So girls, if you have been waiting, can I encourage you to retrospect on your waiting? Knowing that we, the daughters of the Most High God, are born with a purpose to soar high, let our waiting not be without any faith.

Let our actions and plans during the waiting season not be random based on feelings but be strategic. Let us use this time to cultivate our spirits and grow. And when the day comes, we will be perfectly ready.

Let us add value to our waiting.

Yes, It is God Who Allowed It!

Yes, It is God Who Allowed It!

▪ Even though he was God, He allowed himself to become nothing.
▪ He allowed His body to be broken and marred beyond recognition
▪ He allowed Himself to be mocked at, spat at, laughed at.
▪ He allowed Himself to be naked before men and suffer shame.
And He did it for you and me. So we can have a life and life in abundance (John 10:10).


Now what makes you believe that…

  • The God who died for you allowed death of your loved one?
  • He who suffered for your sake allowed suffering to come in your life? (May be so suffering and pain can “teach” you something?)
  • What makes you believe that He who paid the price for your healing with His blood, allowed sickness and trauma to come to you.

God says in Jeremiah 29:11, I know the thoughts that I think toward you. Plans to prosper you and to bring you into a future and a hope.

God is good and whatever He does is good (Psalm 119:68)

And there is one thing I will not allow, God says, in Psalm 89:33-35, I will not allow My faithfulness towards you to fail.

So who allows suffering, sickness?

You can create the world around you with your words. The power of life and death is in your tongue (Proverbs 18:21).

According to 1 Peter 3:10 ( NLT), “If you want to enjoy life and see many happy days, keep your tongue from speaking evil and your lips from telling lies.

It is a messed up idea about who your God is, that allows the devil to steal, kill and destroy.

Beloved, may your eyes be opened. Don’t allow what Jesus paid for!
