Desperate Times Calls For Desperate Measures, Or Do They?

Be careful (don't worry) for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philippians 4:6
When faced with a difficult situation that requires a timed-frame response, we tend to panic and make decisions that we wouldn't necessarily make under normal circumstances. We immediately take it upon ourselves to solve the problem, which we usually end up making it worse for ourselves in the long run.
It is not a good idea to try and resolve a problem out of desperation. Responding out of desperation can lead to defeat. The above scripture tells us not to worry about anything; but through prayer, supplication, and thanksgiving make your requests known to God. In verse 7 of that same scripture, it says, "And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." Thank you Jesus! Isn't it comforting to know that we can take our problems to Jesus and not have to worry about them anymore. We can rest in His assurance that He will take care of our problems as well as us.
Before you are faced with another problem that deserves an immediate response, ask yourself, "Am I going to seek God in the next situation I have, and allow Him to work on my behalf, or am I going to fix it myself?" Your answer to this question will be the difference between your victory and your defeat.
Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved. Psalm 55:22
