Watch Out for Distractions!


So often I hear people talk about distractions and getting distracted.

Long ago the Holy Spirit of God spoke to my heart, “Just because there are distractions doesn’t mean you have to get distracted.”

That was an eye opener for me. I assumed distractions automatically result in being distracted.

Now years later, the Holy Spirit spoke to me, “Watch out for distractions.”

Why? To help me see if I keep my heart and eyes open to distractions, I can choose not to allow myself to get distracted.

In essence, when the temptation comes to get distracted, we can turn to the Lord Jesus Christ instead and follow Him not the distraction.

When we get distracted, we are unable to fully and faithfully follow Jesus and to wholly have the focus and ability to fulfill God’s will for us.

Notice Jesus in the Bible never got distracted. He humbly and devotedly followed God the Father and wonderfully fulfilled the Father’s will for Him on this earth.

Let us strive to do the same!

Watch out for distractions! See them? Cry out to God in prayer to help you follow God instead of getting distracted!

I have a very long way to go in all this, but praise God He is teaching me His ways!

“You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.” Isaiah 26:3 NKJV
