Desperation Produces Results

It is undeniable that desperation leads to actions that often produces results. When my children want ice cream or any sweet treat for that matter; they are willing to do things that does not come naturally for most of them…clean!  It is indeed a sight for sore eyes to see the six of them mobilize to get the job down, even Faith gets in the mix.   My children’s desperation for something sweet gives self-motivation a whole new meaning!

The question that I have to ask myself and I ask the same of you, what are you most desperate for? Is it Jesus? Desperate people will do whatever it takes to get their desired result (JESUS)

Am I as desperate as Zacchaeus, abandoning tradition, cultural norms, and my sins and run to see Jesus?

Am I as desperate as blind Bartimaeus, yelling even louder when the crowd tries to silence me?

Am I as desperate as Jairus, falling at Jesus’ feet pleading with Him for healing?

Am I as desperate as the woman with the issue of blood, pressing through obstacles to meet Jesus?

Because the evidence is there, desperation yields results…

Salvation came to Zacchaeus’ house, a sinner. Bartimaeus the blind beggar received his sight and followed Jesus.  Jairus’ DEAD daughter was brought back to life.  The woman who constantly bled for 12 years was INSTANTLY healed.

I want to always have a heightened sense of desperation for God and the action to prove it.

I am desperate for more of His fire

For His presence

His power

His love

For Him

He promised that if I search for Him  with my whole heart, I will find Him (Jeremiah 29:13).  Whole heart…desperate heart.

Are you desperate?

    1. 2015 has been a year hasn’t it? I am thankful for all the lessons I have learned (even the difficult ones). As a result, I am also more desperate for Jesus than before!
