Watch My Desires

If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him. 

Genesis 4:7

Desire is spoken about clearly and powerfully in the Bible. Nothing can lead us down a road of disaster so quickly than wrong desire.

In the first mention of desire in the Bible, God is speaking to Cain, telling him to watch out because his sinful nature wants to control him.

In the ten commandments, many of them deal with handling wrong desires. Don’t kill, don’t commit adultery, don’t covet, don’t steal, don’t desire what your neighbor has. Half of the ten commandments are about controlling your desires.

I pray that in my life, that I am able to control my desires. They want to fight against me and overcome me, but I should push against them and overcome them.
