How would you like to be God?

James 4:3-You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures

Amiss-wrong: incorrect, inappropriate, or not as it should be.

There have been some request I have asked, that I had no business asking for!

We Can Pray With Wrong Motives-I can pray to get a better paying job, (Which is not a bad thing) but I am asking not because I need one but because I want to buy more stuff, then am I not asking with wrong motive?

I can pray for better health, (Which is not a bad thing) but if I am going to use this good health for only my pleasure, my desires, then am I not asking with the wrong motives?

I can ask God to grow this church,(Which is not a bad thing) but if my desire is just to promote myself, then am I not asking with wrong motives?
