In the beginning, was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Personally, I feel there is no good beginning without God. So, I commence by presenting the first key to you—God! There are two reasons I bring Him first; One, for your focus to be on the preeminent One, the Helper, Master and Guardian of our souls. Two, for us to “get Him out of the way”. Don’t be taken aback, I mean no harm! This is not meant to be sacrilegious at all. It is just that I have seen many believers place God in areas where He has relinquished jurisdiction over to us. We keep waiting for Him to act, whereas He awaits us. By some sort of self-deceit or illusion, we have shirked our personal responsibilities, in a hope that God will fix stuff with His magic wand. Let it be known, He does not have any magic wands. He does not do magic. All His deeds are intentional, and when He steps into a matter, He only intervenes for mercy’s sake.
That being said, let us look at why God is our first key to activating our breakthrough force. God is all-present, all-powerful, and all-knowing. He is the greatest force in all the Universe. Having Him on your side guarantees your victory. All through scripture, we find men and women who would have been crushed had God not been with them. Worthy of mention are Moses, Joshua, Deborah, Hannah, David, Paul and so on. There was nothing spectacular about them other than that they had God! The secret to their success was God. Simple! They had Him, He had them.
Mindset is everything. How do you get to release your breakthrough force? It is to know you have God with you. This knowledge should be practical and tangible. Not just by words of mouth, but also by deep assurance. You need to grasp that there is only one possibility with God, it is victory! 1 Corinthians 15:57—”But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
This goes to say that nothing can undo you! Look, in the face of life’s challenges and the open onslaught of satan, you are sure that no matter how the devil rolls this coin, heads you win and tails he loses.This means it’s either you win or you win.

That is how it is with God. He empowers you to win. He enforces your win. He establishes your win. Sometimes it may look like life is getting the upper hand, but even the worst of situations is working to your advantage with God. Thus, Romans 8:28 says “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Having this in mind, you can climb any mountain, cross any valley, and overcome any obstacle.
He is our partner, our standby and our help. He is for us, not against us.
Romans 8:31—“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?” Other versions say; “So, what should we say about this? If God is with us, no one can defeat us.” (NCV) and, “So, what do you think? With God on our side like this, how can we lose?” (TMB)
God is for us. God is on your side. God is working on your behalf and for your good. Therefore, even though they are antagonistic towards you, even though they bring opposition and obstacles that are averse to you, they can never be successfully against you.
That is why God is your first key to your breakthrough force. It is only by Him you can face life with the “heads I win and tails you lose” mentality. Your first key is God! Do you have Him?
