Re:Verse passage – James 4:1-12 (day six)

Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart’s desires. Psalm 37:4

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need. Matthew 6:33

…you don’t have what you want because you don’t ask God for it. And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong—you want only what will give you pleasure. James 4:2-3

James concludes, we don’t get what we want because we aren’t really all that interested in what God wants. Or said in a different way: the key to fulfilling are heart’s desire is to desire what God desires.

That pretty much sums it up.
