2019 DEC 21 Desperation and Revelation

Bread Crumbs by Loren Larson

Why Is it true that desperation precedes revelation? When the course of our everyday life is moving along without emergency, we oftentimes fail to seek God as we ought.

But when a dire circumstance raises its head, whenever there is a threatening storm on the horizon, or when we experience a “pressing need,” that is when we finally look to God.

Oh, Saint of God, this ought not to be so! We ought to be desperate for God every single hour of every single day. We should live with the constant recognition that without Him we can do nothing.

Without; His assistance, His guidance, His grace, we are helpless! That does not mean that we should live in a constant state of despair or have a negative attitude towards life in general.

It means that the child of God must learn how to walk by faith! It definitely means that being desperate is that honest moment when we look to God in a state of absolute dependence.

Then He, seeing our need, full of compassion and mercy, is always gracious and answers our heartfelt cry.

Whenever we become desperately dependent, He reveals the required answer. So stay desperate for Him!

I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who abide in me and I in them bear much fruit; because apart from me you can do nothing.

John 15:5
