Breaking Barriers

The year was 1947. Pilot Chuck Yeager climbed into his X-1 research plane to accomplish what no one else had ever accomplished before. This was a historic flight. His plane had been designed to resemble a .50 caliber bullet because Mr. Yeager was going to attempt to break the sound barrier. Flying at an unbelievable speed, Chuck Yeager would travel in his aircraft from transonic speed to supersonic speed. And he did. Breaking the sound barrier was to aviation what Neil Armstrong was to the space program. Individuals who had barriers set before them, but refused to be denied the opportunity to break those barriers and enter into a realm where few dare to go.

Because no one had ever broken through the sound barrier before in a flying machine, there was deep concern that as Mr. Yeager reached speeds unheard of before he most likely would disintegrate. The plane he was flying in would experience a violent shaking, then pilot, plane and all would be gone in a matter of seconds. But, that never occurred. According to the news event of the day and the subsequent interview which followed, as the plane entered into the realm prior to breaking the barrier, there was a tremendous pull of the body, but as soon as the break occurred, pressure lifted and an ease transpired that left plane and pilot feeling as though now they were simply gliding.

Most of us have barriers within our lives that we are attempting to break through, yet the pressure from the enemy wants to keep us back from accomplishing what we know within our hearts God wants us to accomplish. Pain is a barrier. Fear is a barrier. Unbelief is a barrier. Doubt is a barrier. Unforgiveness is a barrier. In all our minds they are real. We feel a shaking in our minds and bodies as we progress towards a goal which we have set for ourselves. The enemy has screamed into our ear that we will implode if we keep marching forward. His tactics are used to discourage us. They are used to intimidate us. To keep us from being bold.

Not as much today, but there was a time when often you could hear and feel when an airplane broke the sound barrier while flying. There was a loud noise. A sonic boom if you please. Someone followed in the footsteps of the leader and stepped into a realm where few dare to go.

The word of God is ripe with people who broke sound barriers in the realm of the spiritual. Gideon for example. Fearful, Intimidated and in hiding. His heritage had taught him that he was insignifant. He, according to his own acknowledgement was the “least in his household”. Who would have chosen him? God, that’s who! Heaven needed someone to step into a place that few dared to go. It would require confidence. It would require faith. It would require an assurance. All three things that Gideon said he did not have. A barrier stood before him. He could turn and run. He could continue to keep on hiding and being a puppet in the hands of the enemy. Or, he could rise to the occasion and make a sound wave that would vibrate through the corridor of the enemy’s camp. He did.

Caleb was old. If he had lived in your and my time we would be telling him to seek an easier life. He has paid his dues. It’s time for the old folk’s home. Retirement was his right. No need to accomplish anything great now at his age. Yet, he stood on the soil of Canaan. He had been denied the opportunity because of the unbelief of ten others who influenced an entire generation. (Makes me wonder if you and I need to be careful of who we hang around and allow to influence us?) Yet, the moment he stood once again where he had stood as a forty year old man, now at 85 he could say to Joshua, “Give me this mountain”. And Joshua did. Giants could not stop Caleb. Fenced cities could not contain him. Impenetrable walls could not keep back the senior citizen who knew within his heart that where he stood as a young man was still his right.

What barriers today stand in your pathway? Lack, sickness, disease, fear, anger, bitterness? Will you keep on allowing the enemy to intimidate you? Or will you climb aboard the aircraft of faith and soar where few have dared to soar? Chuck Yeager made history in the realm of the physical because he simply refused to be denied. It’s time for you and me. Not for the realm of the physical to know us, but the spiritual. May a loud noise occur in the region of darkness today because you and I simply, by faith, intend to break through barriers which few have dared to go!!!!!
