The desire to be rich,and famous or to move up in society has prompt or motivate people to make the wrong decisions,sleep with the wrong folks,or hook up with the wrong crowd. Don’t allow your desires to dictate the choices that you make in life. What is at the top of your priority list ? Is it self,money,family,among other things. My question to you is where does God fit in your list of priorities or desires ? Is He even on the list? If He is not,then you have purchase a one way ticket to hell,but if He is at the top of your list,and the head of your life ,then He will bring all your desires to pass, yes,it’s true,because ,He does not lie as Numbers 23:19 & Titus 1:2 tells us. Therefore,whatever His word says,is true,all it takes is obedience. So for your desires to be fulfilled ,you must do as He says. Let’s look at His requirement for your hearts desires to be manifested: Psalm 37:4-5 “Delight thyself also in the Lord and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart, commit thy way unto the Lord,trust also in Him ,and He shall bring it to pass”. 1John 3:22 “And whatever we ask,we receive of Him,because we keep His commandments,and do those things that are pleasing in His sight”. Psalm 84:11 “For the Lord is a sun and shield,the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He with-hold from those who walk uprightly”. Proverbs 8:20-21″I lead in the way of righteous,in the midst of the paths of judgment ,that I may cause those that love me to inherit substance,and I will fill their treasures. 3John 2 “Beloved,I wish above all things,that thou mayest prosper and be in health,even as thy soul prospereth”. Like 12:30-31 says,”Don’t be like the world and seek things,your Father knows that you need those things, But rather seek ye the kingdom of God,and all these things shall be added unto you”. Matthew 6:33 “But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness,and all these things shall be added unto you”. Deuteronomy 8:18 “But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God;for it is He who giveth thee power to get wealth,that He may establish His covenant whicj He swore unto thy fathers,as it is this day”. Galatians 3:20, “And if ye be Christ’s,then are ye Abraham’s seed,and heirs according to the promise”. Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savoir so that you will be heir’s of God’s promises?

This is the time of year people just get out of control,and most folks are broke,busted and disgusted,because they can never be content,they have to keep up with the Joneses,they have to out do everyone,impress everyone,and go to all un-necessary extremes to accomplish their desires,then end up in debt and wonder why.
But godliness with contentment is great gain,for we brought nothing into this world,and it is certain we carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare,and into many foolish and hurtful lusts,which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil,which,while some coveted after,they have erred from the faith,and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou ,O man of God,flee these things,and follow after,righteousness, Godliness ,faith,love,patience, and meekness. Fight the good fight of faith,lay hold on eternal life [1 Timothy 6:6-12].
So my advice is instead of keeping up with the Jones’, keep up with God in righteousness,instead of impressing people,impress God,and you will see the difference in your life as it changes for the better. Stop living for the devil,and start living for God.
