The Light Daily Devotional – The Act of Desperation
Focus: The Act of Desperation
WORD FOR TODAY
When a man becomes desperate he is likely to do the unthinkable and the abominable to achieve his aim. The will of God ushers a man into rest and a life devoid of fear and desperation!
“There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”
1John 4:18 NKJV
Where there is desperation, God is likely not to be present. The only time desperation is required is when we have an intense desire to know God. One of those things you watch at every critical junction of life is desperation. You know something is not the will of God when desperation sets it.
What destroyed the likes of Gehazi, Achan was desperation. Desperate people are not patient enough to enter into God’s plan for their lives because they will always compromise every moral and spiritual standard to achieve their desire.
The children of God find rest in God and enter into His plan and purpose for their lives. Joseph entered into God’s plan for him without desperation. David spared King Saul despite Saul’s desperation to eliminate him in a bid to prevent him from becoming king, but David entered into God’s plan for his life at the appointed time. Don’t be desperate about anything but patiently wait upon the Lord to work out His good pleasure at the appointed time.
+ In what areas of life are you exhibiting desperation?
Prayer: Lord! Help me to wait patiently upon you until you work out your good pleasure in my life in Jesus Name. Amen!
Emphasis: When you become desperate in your quest for something more important than God; you are likely to commit an error!
Have a Peaceful Tuesday!
