Your Desperation Has The Power To Lead To Your Destiny

ASKS

(1 Corinthians 2:9-12 VOICE- But as THE SCRIPTURES say, No eye has ever seen and no ear has ever heard and it has never occurred to the human heart all the things GOD prepared for those who love HIM. GOD has shown us these profound and startling realities through HIS SPIRIT. THE SPIRIT searches all things, even the deep mysteries of GOD. Who can see into a man’s heart and know his thoughts? Only the spirit that dwells within the man. In the same way, the thoughts of GOD are known only by HIS SPIRIT. You must know that we have not received the spirit of this rebellious and broken world but THE SPIRIT that comes from GOD, so that we may experience and comprehend the gifts that come from GOD.)

Along my journey with GOD, there have been countless times when I simply trusted HIM to move in my life. I didn’t worry if HE would answer my prayers or not because the moment that I chose to enter into HIS PRESENCE, it was already established in my heart, confirmed in my mind, and settled in my spirit that HE undoubtedly would. However, in my humanness, there have also been countless times when I entered into HIS PRESENCE lost and broken wondering if HE could hear my voice and the deepest cries of my heart.

There’s a saying that goes, “If you’re going to worry then don’t pray and if you’re going to pray then don’t worry.” and I get the gist of that, but I can’t say that I necessarily agree with it. Being human we will all inevitably have times in our lives where worry will try to defeat us and that’s when we should draw nearest to GOD and pray to HIM with all that we are. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 VOICE- Celebrate always, pray constantly, and give thanks to GOD no matter what circumstances you find yourself in. This is GOD’S Will for all of you in JESUS THE ANOINTED.)

I believe with my whole heart and soul that every word that GOD has promised to us is pure, perfect, authentic, and true. I believe that every single word that HE speaks forth will fulfill HIS intended purpose just as HE said. (Isaiah 55:11 NIV- MY WORD that goes out from my mouth: IT will not return to ME empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent IT.)

In believing all of that and knowing it to be true, in my relationship with GOD more often than not, it wasn’t the times that I entered HIS PRESENCE boldly and with confidence that I had the privilege, benefit, and pleasure of experiencing all that HE is and desires to be in my life, but instead the times when I humbly entered HIS PRESENCE broken and desperate, not knowing which way to turn that HE revealed HIMSELF to me in the most beautiful and prolific ways. Those have been the moments that allowed me to feel HIS PRESENCE and experience HIM the greatest. Those have been the moments when HE allowed me to hear HIS voice with incredible clarity. When I came before HIM worried and fearful are the precise moments that HE has whispered to my heart, I AM with you always. Never will I leave nor forsake you.”. In my deepest and most intricate moments of desperation are the moments that led to true, sincere, intrinsic intimacy with GOD.

Today’s focal passage says, “No eye has ever seen and no ear has ever heard and it has never occurred to the human heart all the things GOD prepared for those who love HIM. GOD has shown us these profound and startling realities through HIS SPIRIT. THE SPIRIT searches all things, even the deep mysteries of GOD. Who can see into a man’s heart and know his thoughts? Only the spirit that dwells within the man. In the same way, the thoughts of GOD are known only by HIS SPIRIT. You must know that we have not received the spirit of this rebellious and broken world but THE SPIRIT that comes from GOD, so that we may experience and comprehend the gifts that come from GOD.”, meaning all we have to do is love GOD and allow HIS SPIRIT to fulfill IT’S purpose within us.

I said all of that to say this… Seek GOD with all that you are no matter the circumstance or situation. Become vulnerable and transparent with HIM because you can trust that HE always has your best interest at heart and knows what’s best for your life. And never allow fear, worry, or doubt to keep you from entering into HIS PRESENCE because in THE PRESENCE of THE LORD your greatest and deepest moment of desperation can be transformed into the LIFE-giving, purpose-filled destiny that HE has planned for your life. (Psalm 36:7-9 GNT- How precious, O GOD, is YOUR constant love! We find protection under the shadow of YOUR wings. We feast on the abundant food YOU provide; YOU let us drink from the river of YOUR goodness. YOU are the source of all life, and because of YOUR light we see THE LIGHT.)

I love you guys!

  1. Amen & Amen! And, Amen! I agree with you Tai. It is in those broken, anxious and fearful moments where God transforms us as we run into his arms. There he reveals his truth. You so well put this. I love how you encourage to go WHEN you are stressed and not to miss this moment. It almost makes me want to always be revealing issues. And, this is the point, isn’t it? You are wise. He has appointed you to spread his truth. You are obedient to this call. He is glorified. Thank you Jesus for your child, Tai!

  3. I hear you, friend. I believe that it’s when we’re transparent before God that he truly gives us peace and his Spirit has the power to change our hearts. It’s such a sweet release to come before him and give him the broken pieces of ourselves so that he can HEAL us. Thank you for this post! You have truly blessed me through your words and his Word today!

  4. “but instead the times when I humbly entered HIS PRESENCE broken and desperate, not knowing which way to turn that HE revealed HIMSELF to me in the most beautiful and prolific ways” This statement is so TRUE! When I desperately reach for just a touch of the hem of His garment, He has shown Himself to me in the most real, present, tangible ways. Thank you for these grace words.
