Each and every one of us has challenges of our own. Some challenges similar to other folks we may know while others seem peculiar; although there is no peculiar challenge (1Corinthians 10:13). I like calling them challenges rather than problems because a problem you are ready to tackle becomes a challenge while a problem you are not ready to tackle becomes a thorn in the flesh for you.
Every accountable person should have their own challenges according to their level of contemplation and maturity. My challenges may not be like those of an 18 year old, whereas what may seem to be an incomprehensible challenge to an 18 year old may be a walkover when presented to me.
When a challenge is present before you its either you breakup, breakdown or you breakthrough.
i. Breakup- It is when you surrender and you start negotiating around the situation, you do not want anything to do with the situation and no longer have the determination to face the devil in the face and tell him “I am victorious over you”.
ii. Breakdown- This is a time when you have run out of your strength, though the spirit is willing the flesh is weak. A person in this kind of state may be given some form of help and can be back again to face the challenge.
iii. Breakthrough- A person in this state was ready to face his challenge until the challenge broke down giving way for him as he broke through the challenge. He did not negotiate around the situation but headed straight for the bull’s eye.
A person in a moment of breakthrough can be credited as a good handler to his challenge and he has a testimony in his life. God wants you to breakthrough not in 1 challenge but to overcome all of your challenges for you are more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37). Handle your challenges well; get into your moment of breakthrough.
