The closer you come to your breakthrough, the more the enemy tries to mess with you. And sometimes we make the fatal mistake of ignoring the enemy and his attacks because we are so focused on our breakthrough.
When Jesus told Simon Peter Satan wanted to sift him like wheat, He didn't tell him this at some random time. This happened just before Peter was set to deny the Lord three times - something he said he wouldn't do.
Some may be wonder, well what does that has to do with getting a breakthrough?
If Satan could have gotten his way, he would have used that one event of denying Christ to totally destroy Peter's future in Christ. Jesus saw what Satan was after, Peter's faith. But in verse 32, Jesus said, "But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail."
If Peter would have lost his faith, not only would he has miss out on a breakthrough, he would have missed out on his destiny!
That's why it's so important to stay prayerful, focused, and away from doubtful thoughts when we're closed to a promised breakthrough. Our attitude must stay positive, not only for reasons of humility but also to keep the enemy from gaining access to our emotions.
We should never think that just because God promised it, we will automatically walk into it. The promise is there, but if Satan is successful at changing your focus, which he is so good at, we could walk right pass our promise or doubt will cause us to turn around from it.
Keep your eye, heart, and mind on God and resist all the enemy's distractions!
