When You

Need a

Good Break!

       There’s a scripture in Psalm 13 that talks about how when our hope seems to drag on and on, the delay can be depressing.  Another version says that unrelenting disappointment leaves you heartsick, but a sudden good break can turn life around (Proverbs 13:12 MSG). 

       When you are waiting for something you can experience unrelenting disappointment.  But you don’t have to allow that feeling to take control.  If you do, it will leave you heartsick.  Instead, believe there’s going to be a sudden good break.  It’s going to turn around the circumstances.  What has been on hold will be taken off hold, and your break will come.  So instead of being tormented, you can be triumphant. 

       When you’re in the “on-hold time,” ask God to minister to you so your heart can stay strong.  Instead of being filled with hurt and disappointment, it will be filled with faith and victory.  And that’s what you need to get you where you want to be—faith and victory.  So seek God to provide that healing and strength in you.  He is there for you when your hope has been deferred and you need a good break.  He will minister to you.

       I was just reading how God made this so real to the famous actor, Jimmy Stewart.  One of his famous movies was, It’s a Wonderful Life.  Most everyone has seen it, but do you remember the scene where Jimmy Stewart’s character, George Bailey, has had everything fall apart? 

       At one point, his business partner misplaces thousands of dollars and now George Bailey is going to be held responsible for it.  All he sees is debt and disappointment surrounding him.  So George goes to a place to get away, and in his despair, he begins to pray quietly to God. 

       Jimmy Stewart describes this scene as being very moving for him to do.  He said as it began, he started to plead, “God, God, dear Father in heaven, I’m not a praying man, but if You’re up there and You can hear me, show me the way.  I’m at the end of my rope.  Show me the way, God.” 

       Stewart said that as he prayed those words, he broke down sobbing.  That was not planned in the script at all.  It took the director by surprise.  But Stewart said it happened because, “The power of that prayer, the realization that our Father in heaven is there to help the hopeless, had reduced me to tears.” 

       He felt what we have feel.  The Father is there to help us when it seems our hope doesn’t exist.  We are heartsick with fear or disappointment.  The waiting is so hard.  In the movie, God sends an angel to help George Bailey through the difficult time and it comes out with a beautiful ending.  He got a good break and the situation turned around. 

       That’s not just for the movies.  God hears the prayer from your heart.  And He can send an angel or whatever is necessary in order to help you during this time.  You can experience the beauty of what is waiting for your life.  It’s great and it’s from God.  So when you feel that you’re on hold, keep reminding your heart that it can rejoice because God is moving behind the scenes.  Let Him encourage you to have hope.  He wants to heal you of being heartsick and bring you out of that. 

       A woman just told us about her good break.  She had requested that we pray for her husband who was ill and also for her daughter’s marriage that had broken apart.  After corresponding and praying with her, she now says her husband is healed and is continuing in good health, and her daughter and her husband have reconciled in their marriage.  She ended her note with the words, “Thank God.”

       You can almost hear her sigh those words, “Thank God.”  How many times have you been there?  You were on hold, waiting, and then the break came.  At last, it was resolved.  And you sighed, “Thank God.” 

       Well, until that comes, and you’re on hold, refuse to become heartsick.  Allow God to strengthen you.  Psalm 27 says that when you wait on the Lord, He will strengthen your heart (Psalm 27:14 ISV).

       The Lord will help you stay strong in your heart and help you be positive about your turnaround.  Believe your good break is coming.  I know you’re on hold and you feel sick and tired of it.  If I could just get a good break, you think. 

       Believe it’s coming your way right now.  This is the beginning.  God is speaking to your heart as you hear these words and He’s saying, “It’s coming.  Things are not as bad as you think.  Hold fast to your hope.”  As you do that, you’ll be able to endure the wait time and experience the good break there for you.

A Spiritual Powerline to say out loud:


Here is a powerful prayer to say out loud:               

       Lord, I refuse to be heartsick because of disappointment today.  I will hold on even when I’m on hold.  My good break is coming.  Thank God!  I have faith for it.  In the name of Jesus.  Amen.
