• Summary:

    Lust is an intense appetite for something, and is based in selfishness. To have a desire is not wrong, but when desire turns into impulsive
    selfishness, greediness, and uncontrollable cravings, it becomes evil.
    Judge your desires; whether or not they are from God or Satan. Godly
    desires will always line up with the Word of God and lead you to a
    place of peace, wholeness, and well-being. Walk in the Spirit and you
    will not fulfill selfish desires.
