“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”
It is God’s will to grant the desires of a person’s heart. God wants to bless people, but God can only bless a person if their heart and prayers are for the right reasons. There are some people who desire things only because they see other people with things, not even realizing how those individuals may have come into acquiring those things. When a person only wants or desires things because of what other people may have, that is the wrong reason. Because of jealousy and envy that some people have set up in their hearts, they are actually blocking their own blessings. In order to receive anything from God, a person’s heart has to be in the right position and their requests have to be with the right motive, as well as in the will of God. Because God owes no one anything, a person with a wrong, selfish and messy motive should really understand that God is not obligated to do anything for them, at all.
James 4:1-3 says “Do you know where your fights and arguments come from? They come from the selfish desires that make war inside you. You want things, but you don’t get them. So you kill and are jealous of others. But you still cannot get what you want. So you argue and fight. You don’t get what you want because you don’t ask God. Or when you ask, you don’t receive anything, because the reason you ask is wrong. You only want to use it for your own pleasure.” (ERV)
Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
