2 Samuel 5:20 (NIV) ~ So David went to Baal Perazim, and there he defeated them. He said, “As waters break out, the LORD has broken out against my enemies before me.” So that place was called Baal Perazim.

The place Baal Perazim means “the Lord who breaks out”, in other words, He is the Lord of the breakthrough. How awesome is our verse for today, how powerful is this word from God for your life and your situation right now? Listen to what God is saying from our text for today, “As waters break out, the LORD has broken out against my enemies before me.” Can you imagine a flood of God’s power raining down from heaven as a mighty deluge sweeping the enemy away? As waters break out so the Lord will break out against your enemy to sweep them away.  
 
I once read a story by Mary Mapes Dodge (1831 to 1905) called The Legend of Hans Brinker. The children’s book tells the story of a young boy who saw a leak in a dyke and put his finger in the hole to stop the dyke from bursting and thus flooding the villages.  The story goes that he stayed there all night until help arrived in the morning.  
Now picture this if you will, you have prayed to the Lord for your breakthrough and the Devil is standing with his finger in the hole trying to stop the answer coming through to you. However, the more you keep believing and praying, and the more you keep trusting and obeying the Lord, the more holes will start to appear in that dam. One by one another hole appears, and another one, then another one, then one more, and before you know it, holes are appearing all over the wall, and very soon the dam that the Devil has tried to built up against you from receiving God’s blessing and his answer to your prayers will burst open. Just as our text for today says in 2 Samuel 5:20 (NIV) “As waters break out, the LORD has broken out against my enemies before me.” The windows of heaven will burst open as God’s blessing will not just trickle out, but burst out, like the breaking forth of waters, and so will his blessing be unto you. Your answer will come! Suddenly, your breakthrough will come and the enemy will be swept away, for God will be unto you The Lord of the Breakthrough.
 
My friend, be encouraged to know that when you enquire of the Lord in prayer like King David and go to Baal Perazim, you will defeat your enemy, for as water breaks out, the Lord will break out against your enemy. Go to God in prayer seeking His direction, then wait for His answer and watch in awe as He sends you the answer, so you to can say like King David, “As waters break out, the LORD has broken out against my enemies before me,” for God has been unto me The Lord of the Breakthrough.
 
God bless you my friends, Matthew
