Jeremiah 22:17 But thine eyes and thine heart are not but for thy covetousness, And for to shed innocent blood, And for oppression, and for violence, to do it.
Time for a confession. I have been fighting with desires lately. I want stuff. I want a better ………. I wish it weren’t true. I wish that I were completely satisfied but I often battle with covetousness. Do you? I want things I don’t have. I want things that others have. I get jealous and selfish.
I even do this in and about the ministry. I want your ministry, your success, your blessings. I try to portray something different but do not do a good job of it. Because my heart is often on things and not on Him.
As I read this verse I thought of the desires, hungers, and stuff I wanted so much. It is time to get back on the altar, to be happy with what I have, and where I am. I love Him and I want to be grateful. I do not want to live for tomorrow when I get the things that I want. I want to live today and be happy with what He is doing in my life.
