As humans there are points in life where we have moments, seconds, hours, days, and months of desperation. Being desperate sucks at times. It hurts, causes confusion, anxiety, fear, and just makes you want to scream to the top of your lungs.
I think God created us all to be a little desperate at times. I believe he created desperation to trigger faith.
A lot of us our desperate right now. We’re desperate for miracles to happen. That’s a good place to be. God loves a desperate heart. He works best when our hearts are in a place of absolute surrender.
In, 1 Kings 17:20-24, Elijah cried out in desperation to God for the widows son to come back to life in the upper room. He believed that God would move, and God answered.
When you pray. Pray out of a place of desperation. It’s okay to cry out. When you get in that place God moves what you cannot see, and what you hope for.
I have seen many miracles in my life because my faith has had many moments of desperation, and knowing that God would answer. All those moments took place because I knew God was bigger then it all.
If your struggling right now, get in a place where you desperately want to see God move. He hears you every time you call out to Him, but you have to get in a place of desperation, and know that God is always faithful even when you cannot see, or do not understand.
Last thing I’ll say; is stay in that place of desperation even when things are going fine and dandy. It’s easy to lose that desperation when everything is going according to plan. You stay in that place by constantly running to the altar, and letting God move how he needs to move.
Prayer to pray:
Lord, help me to enhance my faith, and let me believe that you can move mountains. Lord, you are the mountain mover. Jesus our world is in desperate need of your healing power from the heights of the Heaven. Jesus help me to believe that you can send your power down anytime you want to. Jesus send your power. We need you Father God. In Jesus name. Amen
1 Kings 17:20-24
“Then Elijah cried out to the Lord, “O Lord my God, why have you brought tragedy to this widow who has opened her home to me, causing her son to die?” And he stretched himself out over the child three times and cried out to the Lord, “O Lord my God, please let this child’s life return to him.” The Lord heard Elijah’s prayer, and the life of the child returned, and he revived! Then Elijah brought him down from the upper room and gave him to his mother. “Look!” he said. “Your son is alive!” Then the woman told Elijah, “Now I know for sure that you are a man of God, and that the Lord truly speaks through you.””
