James 4:2

You want something but don't get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God.
(NIV)
You want...
You kill and covet...
You quarrel and fight...
You do not have...

This is not a good situation that you are in.  When you want and don't get, look what happens!  Wanting and not getting shows much of your heart. It reveals things about YOU.

How do you respond when you don't get?  You may say, "Well I don't kill!"  Don't you?  Have you ever killed someone off with your words or your thoughts?  Have you tried to eliminate them from your life?

You want something?  Ask God.  It is just that simple.  Leave it to Him.  Let Him decide if it is something that you need.  Do your work, be responsible, but in the end, leave it to Him to provide.
