Put God Before Things

In order for your desires to be the same as God’s, you must be committed to seeking God, not those desires.
In Matthew 6:24, Jesus said, No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. This simply means that you cannot serve both God and riches. You must choose to serve God and make riches serve you.
If you go lusting after riches, you will fail in life. Second Peter 1:4 says, Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
If you say, “I’m going to be rich and be Mr. Big,” you will fail.
There is no room for that kind of prosperity in God’s plans. You might get it that way through the world’s system, but it’s not going to work with God. If your heart condemns you, your faith will not work. Wrong motives will shut down your faith. 
They that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is the root of all evil (1 Tim. 6:9,10).
It’s the love of money that is the root of all evil, but there are people committing that sin-falling into temptation and snare-who don’t have any money! They would kill you for $50! It’s not money that’s the sin; it’s the love of it.
Jesus said, A man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth (Luke 12:15). Paul urges us not to spend time seeking after things. He says, Godliness with contentment is great gain (1 Tim. 6:6).
You must not make riches your god, but you can serve God and have riches. God wants His people to be wise in every area of their lives. You can serve God and have riches if you will use riches the way God intended. It is all right to have things, as long as things don’t have you! 
The key to being successful is simple. Act on the faith you have and do what Jesus said: Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. You must learn to seek the Source of supply. The Kingdom of God is the Source.
