My friends, have you ever been in a place of desperation with no where to turn to but God? I have, through sickness, divorce, career and relationships and during those times, my cry of desperation was “Oh Lord, make a way for me”.
I don’t know the desperate situation you are currently going through but what I do know is that when we cry out to God, He hears us – even when we can’t see or feel His presence.
The proof is in His promise to us in Isaiah 43:1-2 “But now, this is what the Lord says— he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze”.
In your desperate situation:
- Have an expectation – To receive help you must have an expectation that God can help you in your desperation.
- Believe that God’s promises are true – The Bible reminds us over and over again that God is not a man that He should lie. Our situation may proof otherwise but God will do as He has promised.
- Apply God’s promises to your desperate situation – Applying God’s promises to your situation requires that you not only believe but also acknowledge that He is the Alpha and Omega of your life and if He is, then surrender to His plan and purpose for you.
Christ follower, let God make a way for you in your desperate situation this year. If you are currently not a Christ follower, only God can help you – come.
All glory to God!
