….“The Lord has broken through my enemies before me, like a breakthrough of water.” (2 Sam. 5:20)
In 1665, following an outbreak of the bubonic plague in England, Cambridge University closed its doors, forcing Isaac Newton to return home to Woolsthorpe Manor. While sitting in the garden there one day, he saw an apple fall from a tree, providing him with the inspiration to eventually formulate his law of universal gravitation. Newton later relayed the apple story to William Stukeley, who included it in a book, “Memoir of Sir Isaac Newton’s Life,” published in 1752. In 2010, a NASA astronaut carried a piece of the ancient apple tree aboard the space shuttle Atlantis for a mission to the International Space Station. The Royal Society, a scientific organization once headed by Newton, loaned the piece of the tree for the voyage, as part of a celebration of the 350th anniversary of the group’s founding. Today, the original apple tree continues to grow at Woolsthorpe Manor.
The above is a record from the History Channel concerning the life of Isaac Newton and what led to the discovery of the law of gravity. It was during a time that was filled with great despair and hopelessness, that there was a breakthrough that would forever change the world.
It’s so good to know that, no matter what you are facing, whatever the challenge of the day, God is always greater than your worst day! And because He is greater, you are not going to breakdown – you are going to breakthrough! You may not be strong enough by yourself – but you are not by yourself! God is for you, with you and will never leave you – and He is the God of breakthrough!
We are forever loved, forever, forgiven and forever triumphant! Thank you so much for your partnership. We love you and are praying for you.
Have a glorious day as together, we “breakthrough” with the will of God in this hour!
In His Service,
Cindy, Lois and Ray
