Before sharing with you the biblical truths God has placed on my heart for this month, I want to thank you. You and all the faithful partners in this ministry are such a huge blessing and encouragement.
I thank God and pray for you daily! It is a great honor to teach and inspire you, and to build your faith for the victory God desires. This ministry wouldn’t be the same without you being a part of it…THANK YOU!
Today, I am writing to encourage you to increase your expectation for a breakthrough in your life. Most people today are in need of a major breakthrough of some kind. For some, it’s in the physical realm; they need a breakthrough where their health is concerned. For others, it might be their marriage or family relationships.
But it seems for the majority, the greatest need for a breakthrough is in their finances!
Maybe that is true for you today. Whether there’s an area of lack and it doesn’t seem like you have enough to make ends meet, or if there’s an opportunity you can’t step into because of the financial requirements; God wants to break through in your finances so that you have more than enough. (2 Corinthians 9:8)
For many people, the financial pressure is not necessarily because they’ve been unwise or bad managers of their money – they’ve just come under attack and they’re trusting God for their needs to be met. It seems that it’s just more than they can do in the natural and they need “divine intervention.”
Over the years, this ministry has faced many financial challenges and many of them looked impossible to overcome!
If anyone ever told you, “If you truly live by faith, you’ll never have another problem.”…they lied! If they ever told you, “If you truly live by faith, you’ll never have another challenge.”…they lied!
In fact, the truth is, if you live by faith…welcome to problems! You are going to have challenges like you have never had in your life. But the beautiful thing is, it is faith that overcomes the world! You’re also going to have more victories than you’ve ever had in your life.
When I first stepped out in faith to launch Jerry Savelle Ministries on January 1, 1974, things seemed great financially at the beginning. On the first day, I walked into a fully equipped office, $5,000 in the bank, and a speaking schedule for the entire year that filled up during the first few months. We went on national radio and someone even gave me an airplane!
But then…ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE! Bills kept rolling in, payroll had to be met, and expenses outpaced the income. We were not mismanaging the finances. We were doing exactly what God had instructed us to do. This was an attack from Satan to stop this ministry!
I was standing my ground in faith, but I’m telling you, it was not easy. And it seemed it just kept getting worse. I started thinking, “I guess I could sell the plane. That would give us the money we need.” But the Lord said to me, “Sell the airplane and divide the money between two ministries that are under financial attack.” I’m thinking, “We’re under financial attack!” He said, “Sow it into those two ministries.”
Now that does not line up with human reasoning, human logic. Human logic says sell the airplane, put the money in the bank, pay all your bills, you would have money left over, and now you won’t be under that pressure. That’s human reasoning and human logic. Not to say that’s totally wrong, but that’s NOT what God wanted me to do.
So I went into my office manager and I said, “Give me the title to the airplane. I’m going to sell it and sow the money into these two ministries.” He said, “You can’t do that.” I said, “What do you mean I can’t do that?” He said, “We need the money. You can’t afford to give it.”
Nobody’s telling me I can’t give. I sowed the airplane…and the manager too!
This is when I first began to realize that sowing my airplane was more valuable as a seed than it was as a sale. Because as a sale, all I could get at the most, is retail value. But as a seed I’m capable of a hundred fold return. That’s a whole lot more than retail.
I got my breakthrough, praise God! God came through just like He said He would. Not only that, it opened the door for a bigger, better, faster airplane. And that was 9 debt-free airplanes ago!
Some people say, “You know I’m trusting God, but nothing is happening.” Well, you’ve come too late for me, because every time I trust God, something does happen. Breakthroughs!
If you need a financial breakthrough in your life today, then there is hope.
God is the God of the breakthrough!
What’s important is that you keep on doing what the Word tells you to do and refuse to give up! Hebrews 10 in the Message Translation says, “Let’s keep a firm grip on the promises that keep us going. He always keeps His word. So don’t throw it all away now. You were sure of yourselves then. It’s still a sure thing. But you need to stick it out, staying with God’s plan so you’ll be there for the promised completion” (Hebrews 10:22-23, 39).
And I love what the Message translation says in the last verse of this chapter, “But we’re not quitters who lose out. Oh no! We’ll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.”
Is that the choice that you’ve made? Are you going to stick with God and trust Him all the way? If so, then get ready, because your breakthrough is on its way!
I may not know the details of what you are facing, but I do know that our God is greater! Genesis 18:14 declares, “Is anything too hard for the Lord!”
I wish I could share with you all that God has shown me about receiving supernatural financial breakthroughs…that is why I pray that you respond to this letter and request this month’s teaching resource, Breakthroughs and Victories – How To Defy Your Odds. In my message, I am able to go into greater detail and show you, in Scripture, the principles you need to overcome any attack from Satan.
One of the greatest ways to bring a financial breakthrough is by sowing financial seed into good ground! Proverbs 11:25 reveals to us, “The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.”
When you give to this ministry, you are doing two things: First, helping us reach people with God’s love and truth, and second, positioning yourself for a harvest of financial breakthroughs and increase!
Take a moment and ask the Lord if He is leading you to support this ministry. Then, simply obey what He tells you to do.

I have seen God show up and turn financial lack into supernatural abundance! He has taken impossible looking situations and defied the odds! And if God has done that for me, I know He can do it for you!
I’m praying for you and believing for the God of the breakthrough to show Himself strong in your life!
P.S. I love what the Apostle John says in 1 John 5:14, “And this is the confidence we have in him.” Don’t you love being confident? There’s just something about being able to walk around with your head up, a smile on your face, a dance in your step, and have confidence. Confidence in what? Confidence in Him. Confidence in His Word. It’s a wonderful way to live! Let me encourage you to have more confidence in God than in the challenges you face. That’s what I’m here for! To build your faith so you can live in the victory God has for you!
