Summary: God is looking for people who are desperate for His move. He is looking for risk takers who are ready to say, “if I perish I perish” just like Esther. God is looking for people with unshakable faith who are ready to move out of their comfort Zone.
Esther 4 vs 16 say:
“Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so, will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.”
Have you ever found yourself in a desperate situation where it seems there is no way out? Perhaps you’ve found yourself going through some personal issues that has caused you to be trapped in difficulty and dilemma of desperation. Do you find yourself in a situation where it seems your hope is shattered and your faith is fainted? Or Have you just received a letter that has caused you sorrow and depression? This was exactly what happened to the Jews when they were caught up in a desperate situation and were about to be destroyed within a given period.
Esher 3 vs 13 says:
And the letters were sent by posts into all the king's provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day, even upon the thirteenth day of the twelfth month, which is the month Adar, and to take the spoil of them for a prey.
Many of us have been engulfed by the enemy and we are looking for ways to escape. Some have been bound Financially, Emotionally, academically, Spiritually, martially, residential status issues, health problems, hatred and jealousy. If we are going to break out of any bondages and issues we are going through right now, we need to be desperate for the move of God.
WHY DO WE NEED TO BE DESPERATE?
(Mark 5 :23-24)
A) It makes Our request urgent before God
B) It makes Our request have compassion before God
C) It makes Our faith stronger
D) It makes Our request have an immediate response from God.
Beloved to be desperate requires some effort on our part and there are some prerequisites that must be fulfilled.
I. LET GO OF THE PAST
It’s funny how we are constantly living in the past of how things used to be and how we use to do things. Been desperate means we must change our style and our way of doing thing
2. HOLD ON TO YOUR FAITH
Don’t be afraid to take a risk and try new things. Don’t allow the enemy to keep you in the confinement of fear that this is not possible or that is not possible. if you’re operating in fear, you’re not operating in the power of the Lord. In spite of what it looks like, In spite of what’s coming behind you, in spite of how bad the situation is, just stand boldly on God’s Promises, Stand boldly on God’s Word… And hold on to your faith
3.BE STILL (Psalm 37:7)
To “be Still” literally means to relax and take your hands off and watch God move! We must learn how to let the Lord fight our battles…We must allow God to move in His own time.
4. LAUNCH FORWARD (Luke 5:4)
we have to launch forward into the deep end and allow God to take control. We must lay down our mindset, lay down our way of thinking, lay down our attitude and perception of things and be desperate for the move God.
5. CRY OUT IN DESPERATE PRAYERS (Mark 10:46-47)
We need to cry out like the blind Bartimaeus to attract God’s attention so we don’t miss our miracles.
