WHEN OUR DESIRES TURN TO SIN
Our creator, who designed us in His image, knows what it is we long for.
Through out our life, all of us experience longings. We yearn for circumstances or people to be different and crave things we do not have.
Hankering, hungering, longing, thirsting, yearning---all of these terms can be used to describe our desire.
Eve yearned for the fruit of the forbidden tree; her desire became so strong that she took matters into her own hand to get what she wanted.
Temptation its self is not sin, but acting on our own against God's word is.
Stop and compare your desires with the truth of the scriptures and let go of any that do not meet His standard.
Then you will spend less time praying to to be for-given.
