Bible Text: James 4:1-10 |


We all have battling desires within ourselves, especially the desire for happiness. Those desires aren't necessarily wrong, it's how we satisfy those longings that is the key. Only God can satisfy those longings and desires. We're commended to delight in the LORD (Psalms 37:4). We can be filled with joy in His presence  (Psalm 16:11). Humble yourself and submit to God. Depend on Him. Like a soldier submitting, lining up under, a commanding officer - submit to God. Don't settle for 2nd best. Don't settle for lesser pleasures. Who are you serving today? Is Christ the dominant theme of your life? Please don't settle for 2nd best.
