Desperate Times Call on Desperate Measures!

Where in the sam hill did that saying come from and why would a born again believer repeat it?

For a faith walking man/woman of God, when is there ever a desperate time? Before answering that, recall what you have been delivered from and your weaponry in Christ (Ephesians 6:11 KJV). Now answer.

When you are making a decision based on pressure that has suddenly come upon you, remember that God tries the hearts of men (Proverbs 17:3 AMP). If you don't find His Word in the midst of those wrong feelings, He will find no pleasure in you. For it is impossible to please Him without faith (Hebrews 11:6 KJV).

With that being written, we can see clearly why when a person is desperate to marry (for whatever the reason) there will be trouble in hot pursuit to come against the marriage (1 Corinthians 7:28 AMP). The struggle isn't because of the finances, or the lack thereof, it is because of the mindset of the individual.

If there is ever a desperate time and you cannot focus on prayer or God's Word, call on the elders of the church (James 5:14 AMP). The bible says to do this when someone is sick. For a believer to state that he/she is desperate, he/she must be sick. What would you call it?
