The sound of breakthrough today is an echo of what we have been crying out to God for.

By Kim Potter

For the past few days I keep hearing this phrase in my spirit: the sound of breakthrough.

On a recent morning, I awoke at 2am, as I felt the Lord had awakened me. I got up and began to talk to Him and meditate on this phrase, the sound of breakthrough.

I thought of the Scriptures in Acts 2:1-2, “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from Heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.”

The 120 who were gathered in the Upper Room, heard a sound before they saw anything. Before they were filled with the Holy Spirit, the first thing they experienced was a sound.

Then I thought about the walls of Jericho in Joshua, chapter 6.

God told them to march around the walls for six days, carrying the ark of the covenant. He instructed them to be silent during those six days.

They obeyed God.

On the seventh day, they were to march around the wall seven times, blast trumpets and then shout.

Can you imagine the sound of the trumpets and the shouting after six days of silence? On that seventh day when the trumpets blasted and the people shouted, the walls of Jericho came down.

I am certain those walls didn’t come down quietly. It must have been very loud that day, with the trumpets, the shouting, and the walls falling—it was the sound of breakthrough!

On a recent morning, I was reminded of the times I have sat on my back porch and heard the sound of a storm coming. I could hear the winds coming from miles away. I could hear the rain coming from a distance…it was the sound I heard, before I saw the storms.

It was Elijah who said, “I hear the sound of an abundance of rain.”

Today, I hear a sound—I hear the sound of breakthrough!

In Acts 2:2, they heard a sound. That word sound is the word echos. Did you catch that? The sound they heard was an echo…oh my!

They were in the Upper Room, praying and crying out to God when they heard an echo—an echo of what they were calling out to God sounded, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit.

The sound of breakthrough I hear today is also an echo. It is an echo of what we have been crying out to God for. Those prayerful words have entered into the very presence of God and He is about to send a sound—an echo of our prayers and our petitions. That sound is our breakthrough!

Echo is defined in the Webster’s 1828 Dictionary as: To reverberate or send back sound; to return what has been uttered.

You are about to see what you have been saying!

God’s Word, spoken from your mouth, will not return void, but will accomplish what it was sent for and it will return to you as a manifested breakthrough (see Isaiah 55:11).

Glory be to God!

Listen friends, listen for the sound of breakthrough.

The walls are beginning to fall. Can you hear them? What you have been standing in faith for, the words you have been sending to God…are about to echo and come back to you. Can you sense it?

It may be a quiet sound at first, but listen and tune it to the sound of your breakthrough. It will become louder and louder, like a train coming down the track, like a storm moving in from a distance. Listen for it; listen for the sound of the echo of your words. Those words are coming back to you as a manifestation of breakthrough.

Listen, can you hear the sound? The sound of breakthrough, it’s all around us.

May you have ears to hear…to hear the sound of breakthrough!
