Bible Verses about Desires

  • Live by the Spirit, I say, and do not gratify the desires of the flesh.
  • Put to death, therefore, whatever in you is earthly: fornication, impurity, passion, evil desire, and greed (which is idolatry).
  • You want something and do not have it; so you commit murder. And you covet something and cannot obtain it; so you engage in disputes and conflicts. You do not have, because you do not ask.
  • And the world and its desire are passing away, but those who do the will of God live forever.
  • Or can one walk on hot coals
    without scorching the feet?
  • But because of cases of sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.
  • “All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are beneficial. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything.
  • For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
  • I have made a covenant with my eyes;
    how then could I look upon a virgin?
  • Discipline yourselves, keep alert. Like a roaring lion your adversary the devil prowls around, looking for someone to devour.
  • For all that is in the world—the desire of the flesh, the desire of the eyes, the pride in riches—comes not from the Father but from the world.
  • For you were called to freedom, brothers and sisters; only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for self-indulgence, but through love become slaves to one another.
  • Let marriage be held in honor by all, and let the marriage bed be kept undefiled; for God will judge fornicators and adulterers.
  • No testing has overtaken you that is not common to everyone. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the testing he will also provide the way out so that you may be able to endure it.
  • As a deer longs for flowing streams,
    so my soul longs for you, O God.
  • Stay awake and pray that you may not come into the time of trial; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
  • No one, when tempted, should say, “I am being tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil and he himself tempts no one.
  • In the path of your judgments,
    O Lord, we wait for you;
    your name and your renown
    are the soul's desire.
  • Thus he has given us, through these things, his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of lust, and may become participants of the divine nature.
  • For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, and in their eagerness to be rich some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pains.
  • All day long the wicked covet,
    but the righteous give and do not hold back.
  • When your eyes light upon it, it is gone;
    for suddenly it takes wings to itself,
    flying like an eagle toward heaven.
  • My friends, if anyone is detected in a transgression, you who have received the Spirit should restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness. Take care that you yourselves are not tempted.
  • What then should we say? That the law is sin? By no means! Yet, if it had not been for the law, I would not have known sin. I would not have known what it is to covet if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.”
  • And do not bring us to the time of trial,
    but rescue us from the evil one.

And those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
