So here are 3 signs God might be preparing you for a major breakthrough that could be right around the corner.
1. If God Is Removing Harmful People, Places, and Things from Your Life, This Could Be in Preparation for a Breakthrough
God doesn’t build on uneven ground. God doesn’t try to grow seeds in soil that is not good. And before God brings you into his presence, he will first cleanse you from all sin. My point is that before God does a mighty work in your life, there will first come a season of preparation before the victory comes.
Sometimes before God will bless you with a breakthrough, he will first remove the people, places, and things in your life that are causing damage to your heart. If God blessed us before he prepared us, oftentimes we would miss the blessing of misuse it once we got it. Notice what Jesus said in John 15:1-5. It states:
I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. . . . I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.”
Notice in John 15:2 Jesus said that even when you are bearing fruit for God, he will cause you to grow even more fruit for him by pruning you. This is a great example of how God often has to take us through a painful season of preparation before he can produce even more fruit in our lives. To prune means to cut away the excess so even more can be produced in your life.
If God is taking away the people, places, and things in your life that are hindering your growth, this pruning process can be very hard and painful. Just know that this is in preparation for your breakthrough.
