Breakthroughs

Every successful biblical counseling case is filled with key moments that could be called "Divine Breakthroughs". These are times in conversation with the counselee that they hear one or more biblical truths with such clarity and candor that a major shift takes place - the darkness and hopelessness of their complicated situation is replaced with the direction and perspective of the All-Wise Sovereign Father and God. Each week this blog will seek to contain one or more of those divine breakthroughs that have recently occurred in counseling by one or more of our biblical counselors at the Lowcountry Biblical Counseling Center. Our hope is that the Lord will use these weekly gleanings to help you in your life and ministry to others.

By Greg Gifford

When meeting with another counselee recently, there was that “Aha!” moment—you could see it in his body language. He literally looked away and thought for a moment, then sat up straight in the chair. Something had struck him, but what was it? In this case, what ...
