You Have Not Because You Ask Not

Good Monday morning to you! There is a battle raging inside of us. We want what we want and we want it right now. So we’ll do anything we can to get what we want. But the one thing we should do, we don’t do. Listen to what James says:

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? 2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight. You do not have because you do not ask God. – James 4:1-2 (NIV)

People covet and steal and kill to get what they want, but they don’t pray. We don’t turn to the One who can give us the desires of our hearts. We don’t submit to God or His will and instead we resort to sinful means to get what we want. So what is it that you truly want? Have you asked the Lord to provide that which you desire? Trust Him that, if it is His will, He will, in His time, give you what you need and what you want.
