Being desperate can make a person do crazy things. The children of Israel were so desperate to get out of the wilderness, that they left they’re faith and worshipped false Gods. They couldn’t be patient, they didn’t want to wait upon the Lord and all His goodness. We can be so impatient that we take matters in our own hands, but what good does that do?
Don’t be so desperate for things that you want in this life whether it be; a baby, money, spouse, new car, that you miss out on Gods goodness for you. Don’t allow your desperation to separate you from God and His plans. Hold on. Keep trusting. Keep believing. When you come out of your wilderness into your promise land you will forget your desperation. All you will see is the glory of God. Don’t lose sight of God. Let go of the desperation.
“keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith. For the joy that lay before him, he endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
Hebrews 12:2 CSB
