Kicking Desperation

Feeling DownGod doesn’t work on our time schedule nor does He do things our way. A really good example of this is someone going to the casino. When someone is desperate, it is so easy for them to think that by going to the casino, they could pray to God and expect a miracle to happen.

However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. God is not mocked. (Galatians 6:7) He knows that the person is trying to get Him to do something that is not according to His will. If God didn’t guide you to go, then, God is not obligated to make things happen.

See, when we try to take things into our own hands, we think of a lot of ways to “try” and make things happen. The problem with this thinking is that we are to “cast all our cares upon Him”. (1 Peter 5:7) So, when we take things into our own hands, it is like telling God that we can handle the problem ourselves. And, God being the gentleman He is lets us “try” to take care of it.

Unfortunately, we find that most of the time, things don’t go according to plan. In fact, we find that the very things we are trying to fix get worse. This is when we desperately cry out to God asking the “Why” questions. A lot of times we even start to get angry with God when it wasn’t His fault; it was ours.

God wants us to have the absolute best; a life filled abundantly. However, He does have a stipulation. He wants to be in FIRST PLACE; leaning on Him for all things. He wants us to love Him, seek Him, and get to know Him in a very intimate way. Then, and only then, you will find yourself prospering in all areas of life. You won’t have to “try” to make things happen; they just will. (Matthew 6:33)


We serve a supernatural God. It takes one small move from Him to change your life around in the most amazing ways. So, the next time you have a problem; don’t “try” to solve it on your own. Instead, immediately give it to God for His amazing transformation. His ways are much higher than our own, so don’t limit His ability to provide for you nor how long it should take. It will come when you least expect it and in a way that you would never have imagined. And, when it happens, there won’t be any question to WHO provided it.
