Distraction: to disturb or trouble greatly in mind; to draw the attention of (a person) away from something. Also to disrupt the attention of someone, preventing the ability to focus or concentrate.
With the above meaning in mind, there are so many of you reading this right now that have become greatly distracted. It has become almost impossible to remain focus on anything or give the important things in your life the attention that it needs.
My friends I want to inform you tonight that you are not dealing with the definition of a word, instead your adversary is that of a spiritual nature, WHICH IS THE SPIRIT OF DISTRACTION! The average person has been faced with this nasty spirit but have adapted to it because of its subtle nature. The following signs will conclude if you are indeed oppressed by this spirit.
Have you been feeling overwhelmed, easily confused, the simplest things seem so hard, frustration and fatigue seems to be the order of the day, extremely impatient particular if you have to wait in a line or in traffic? What about uncontrollable anger, to the point of exhaustion when you would have calmed down. Then finally a sudden and intense feeling of depression and uncontrollable crying that follows? My friend’s make no mistake; if you are experiencing these symptoms then you are clearly being tormented by the spirit of distraction whose ultimate goal is to disable you mentally.
Well tonight I have come equip with the spirit of the lord to bring you spiritual and physical relief. Firstly, we are in fact dealing with a spirit, therefore in order to defeat a spirit we need spiritual weapons. So what are the spiritual weapons made available to us? Well, Jesus said that the words that he speak, they are SPIRIT AND LIFE, John 6:63.
If the words that Jesus speaks are spirit, then clearly it is these words that we need to fight these evil spirits with. So far we understand that God's word is spirit, right? So, where is the proof in the bible that his words can heal our minds from this spirit of distraction? I am happy that you asked, scripture says, "He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction, Psalms 107:20. Wow! Does this mean that this word can heal my mind from this spirit of distraction and my in ability to focus? YES! Do I use any scripture? No! You must use specific scriptures that relates to your healing.
So, for all of you having challenges in your mind with this spirit repeat the following scriptures everyday to yourself or out loud even now,
"Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee", Isaiah 26:3 and also, "Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them, Psalm 119:165. Search the bible for all scriptures relating to your mind, one of my favorites, “God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of love, power and SOUNDNESS OF MIND.
As you repeat these scriptures begin to visualize in your mind the word acting as a sword, because that is exactly what it's doing according to scripture in the spirit realm as you SPEAK THE WORD!, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart, Hebrews 4:12. I promise you, just be patient and you will experience your ability to regain your focus and mental stability. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER KEY FROM THE KEYS YOU’VE BIN GIVEN TO THE KINGDOM, BE FREE!

It is always God's desire to exceed our highest expectation. Whatever it is that you're believing God for, HE WANTS TO EXCEED YOUR GREATEST DESIRE! The word exceed is defined as going beyond the limits of what is allowed or permitted. However, for this to happen, God certainly needs your full corporation. What do you mean, Kevin?
Well, scripture tells us that God will do exceedingly abundantly, and above all that we could ask or think ACCORDING to the power that works in us. Again, exceedingly means going beyond a determine mark or position, to go beyond the limits. Abundantly, on the other hand, means to be richly supplied or having something in great quantity. So far, we see that God wants to exceed our desires. However, the scripture goes on to identify our part by using the word "ACCORDING." The word according is defined as being in agreement or in harmony with someone or something.
Scripture further states, "according to the power that works in us," Now what is this power that the Apostle Paul speaks of? Well according to the Apostle Paul in Romans 1:16, he says, that he is not ashamed of the GOSPEL (The good news or the word of God) for it is the POWER unto salvation.
Let's bring it all together. God, who wants to take us beyond our limits, will not perform the exceedingly, abundantly and the above all that we could ask or think unless we are in agreement with his word, which is the power that resides in us. This simply means we must agree with his word, for example, "The LORD shall increase you more and more, you and your children" Psalm 115:14. Do you believe this word, are you behaving and speaking as if this word has already happened, do you repeat this word when you see the opposite of this word taking place in your life? Well, this is the understanding of the word working in us.
As proof of this revelation, Jesus said, "If ye abide in me and my WORD/POWER abides in you ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. The key to this remarkable revelation is the fact that God will not respond to your tears, situation, or challenge...... HE RESPONDS TO HIS WORD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, here are the keys to not only getting your prayers answered quickly but to exceed your highest expectation:
1) Search the scriptures as it relates to your challenges and give God back his word as it relates to those challenges. As an example, you are praying to God for a debt-free home, well his word says, "I will give you houses you did not build, I will give you land that you did not labor for, Deuteronomy 6:11 and Joshua 24:13. Make your request to God and support your request with his word, which is the evidence that he will do what he has said.
2) Now conclude your prayer, by asking God to exceed whatever you are asking for. If you are asking for wisdom, don't just ask for wisdom ask him to exceed the wisdom that you presently have, ask him to exceed the love in your heart, ask him to exceed your love for others, ask him to exceed your knowledge and understanding and most of all exceed your joy in the midst of whatever is challenging you emotionally.
Heavenly Father, we believe your word, and we come in agreement with your servant king David who said, “Thy word is a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path. It is my prayer, Father, that your word will break down every barrier that has caused your people to feel limited in their walk with you. I decree that as of this day that they will make their request to you with the confidence that you will do exceedingly, abundantly and above all that they could ever ask or think according to your word that works in them. We ask these things in the name of your son Jesus Christ, Amen!

Thank you Jesus, this is such a wonderful Morning. Friends I just want to give a little insight on this blessed morning. I mentioned earlier in my statement that this is a wonderful morning. Now, I am aware that many of you would probably believe I said that because I might be feeling good this morning, or because I am grateful that God has woke me up this morning, which of course are all true.
However, this morning is even more wonderful for me because I have decided in my mind that come what may in or during the course of this day IT IS A DAY THAT I HAVE DECIDED AND MADE UP IN MY MIND THAT IT IS INDEED WONDERFUL. Friends, we must grab a hold of the understanding that if we are depending on our feelings to determine that are days should be wonderful, then that tells me that a day can be filled with awesome opportunities and joy but depending on our feelings it can dictate otherwise. I encourage you to ask God this morning to assist you in abandoning all negative feelings that are contrary to this marvelous day that he has blessed us with. Ask him to assist you in lining up your thoughts to appreciate and embrace this day in spite of what may be going on in your life that you dislike. The truth is there will always be things going on in your life. So, say to those negative thoughts that are attempting to dictate your day for the negative.................. NOT TODAY!
Do something different today, take a walk on the beach this morning, and begin to pray silently as you walk and just thank God for helping you renew your mind and even maintaining the soundness of your mind. Don’t tell him about your problems you’ve bin doing that he’s fully aware of them. Say to God, please grant me stability in my mind to focus on him, and then remind him of his word, which says, “Thou will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed upon thee”. Ok so maybe you may not be near a beach, then jump in your car and drive somewhere you never drove before but while driving, begin to pray for the different people and homes that your eyes come into contact with, consider those things you are going throught and ask God to provide a solution in the lives of those folks that you've decided to pray for that maybe going through the same things you're going through. Maybe you're on your job, then take a few minutes and walk outside or go to the rest room and just begin to silently pray. Again do not focus on your problems but focus on what you've been missing due to focusing on your problems and that is life screaming at you saying, "LIVE, LAUGH, DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT, MAKE THE DECISION THAT YOU WILL BE FIFFERENT TODAY".
If you are going through a marital or financial problem, then ask God to heal someone else’s marriage or finances. Maybe you are unemployed, I strongly encourage you this morning to talk to God and pour your heart out to him with a concentrated effort of praying for someone else who's in the same position as you. I CAN NOT REPEAT IT ENOUGHT AND THAT IS YOU MUST DETERMINE TO BE DIFFERENT IN ORDER TO SEE DIFFERENT! WHAT YOU MAKE HAPPEN FOR OTHERS GOD WILL CERTAINLY MAKE HAPPEN FOR YOU……… REMEMBER WHAT YOU SOW YOU WILL MOST CERTAINLY REAP!
Lastly, while getting dress for work or wherever you have decided to go this morning, make up in your mind that you expect an encounter with God, and even if where you’re going they chose to remain the same and do things as usual, you must determine YOU WILL BE DIFFERENT BEGINNING WITH THE WAY YOU THINK.
Repeat the following statements with the mind set to be different in this day; I AM DIFFERENT, I AM A WINNER, THE SOLUTIONS TO MY PROBLEMS AREQUICKLY APPROACHING ME, I HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH, MY SITUATION ISN’T AS BIG AS IT SEEM, NOT ONLY WILL I OVERCOME BUT IN MY OVERCOMING I HAVE LEARN HOW TO INSTRUCT OTHERS HOW TO OVER COME, IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME……………. You have a bless day.
Thank you Father for those that have decided to receive your inspired words of encouragement this Morning. I pray, that in this day, that the spirits of selfishness, pride, arrogance and every other spirit that's causing these readers to place you on the back burner, to be remove permenantly in Jesus name. Finally, I pray for a renewed mind, with positive thoughts that will equal a positive outlook on life in spite of the negativity that's around them. Your word says to give thanks in all things, therefore I give you thanks for that restored marriages, restored financial situations and every other challenge that they might be faced with and most of all I give you thanks for every reader of this article that have decided and determine to be different in this day in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen!
