You want what you don’t have, so you scheme and kill to get it. You are jealous of what others have, but you can’t get it, so you fight and wage war to take it away from them. Yet you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure.
James 4:2-3 NLT
Our source is God. Look up! Don’t look at your boss, friend, sister, or coworker. Look to God. Instead of focusing on what others have, focus on what you want and why you want it. Do you want a new job? Why? Do you want more money? Why?
Dear God, I thank you for your Word. I thank you that you are our source. Help us to examine our desires and the motives behind our desires. Heal our heart of unhealthy desires. Help us to commit all our desires to your Word and Will. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
