Topic: Desperation For A Lift And Shift [Seeds Of Destiny 4 January 2019 Devotional]
Scripture: And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. Genesis 32:24
Thought For The Day: Desperation breaks existence in stagnation; desperation brings elevation.
It has been confirmed that desperation is a demand for Divine lift in life. To be desperate or passionate after God is to be lifted by Him.
Now, how does desperation lift a person? Desperation breaks existence in stagnation; desperation brings elevation. When you come to a point and say, ‘Things cannot continue the way they have been in my life; my life must change’, then you are ready for a change of level. It was by desperation that Jacob changed his levels (Genesis 32:24).
Ruth also changed level by desperation (Ruth 1:17). Even as a Moabite, she was named in the genealogy of Jesse and King David of the royal tribe of Judah, the ancestral lineage of our Lord Jesus Christ by desperation (Ruth 4:17). People change levels by desperation; people experience lifts and shifts in life by desperation.
I want you to take note of two key facts on desperation:
i. Life becomes dynamic when people become desperate.
As long as people are satisfied with where they are, they are stagnated in life.
ii. Changes become drastic when people become desperate.
People change levels drastically in life when they become desperate.
Now, let me give you two keys to desperation:
i. Refuse to die on the same spot in all areas of life.
ii. Refuse to take ‘No’ for an answer (Matthew 11:12).
Beloved, as you take these steps, I see you experiencing supernatural lifts and shifts in life, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Desperation breaks existence in stagnation; desperation brings elevation.
- Develop an unquenchable passion for God and His Presence.
- Refuse to be satisfied in life until God changes your level.
Prayer: O Lord, I ask that You give me a fresh baptism of unquenchable passion for You. Draw me closer to Your Presence Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
