Away From Breakthrough

This world has been conditioned to work on documents and papers. One needs a birth certificate to be recognized as having been born, educational certificates are needed as proof of one being qualified for a certain job, a passport is needed for one to be able to travel from one nation to the other, recently covid vaccination certificates were also requested for people to be allowed to travel, the list is endless. Some of the challenges we face in life as a result of lack of certain documents that are needed for us to be able to be accepted or overcome those challenges.

I am reminded of the story of Nehemiah when he needed to go back to Jerusalem to rebuild the gates and the walls that had been burnt and broken respectively. In order for him to have a successful journey he needed certain letters to be granted by the King so that he may have provision and safe passage.

“Moreover I said unto the king, If it please the king, let letters be given me to the governors beyond the river, that they may convey me over till I come into Judah; And a letter unto Asaph the keeper of the king’s forest, that he may give me timber to make beams for the gates of the palace which appertained to the house, and for the wall of the city, and for the house that I shall enter into. And the king granted me, according to the good hand of my God upon me. Then I came to the governors beyond the river, and gave them the king’s letters. Now the king had sent captains of the army and horsemen with me.” (Nehemiah 2:7-9 KJV).

As much as we need letters, documents, certificates in this world, there is a greater document we need which is the Bible. We need the word of God to make it in this life.

Paul says the Word of God is profitable; “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (2 Timothy 3:16 KJV).

Isaiah also confirms the same the same things when he says, “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11 KJV)

May God help us so that we may study and know this life changing document called the Bible or Word of God which is the chief document of all documents.

In His Love,
