Most folks speak about how great they are at "multi tasking". What they don't realize is that if they're not focusing on the ultimate task, then every other task will amount to mere distractions.
A distraction doesn't ...
usually walk around wearing a T-shirt and carrying a banner that says "Hi I am Mr. distraction". To the contrary distractions are very much engaging and quite entertaining. Simultaneously a distraction's purpose is to consume your time in an effort to prevent you from connecting and concentrating on what's important to you at that particular time of your life. Also, destroying what you currently have or preventing you from connecting with what has been prepared for you by God in the future.
Isn't it strange that your old boy friend/girl friend decides to pop up when things are finally going good with you and your mate? Isn't it strange that promotion is about to take place on your job but one of your co-workers who have never spoken to you before all of a sudden appears so friendly and nice now? Don't you find it strange that since you've been praying for that financial breakthrough opportunities for you to be dishonest has been overwhelming?
The point I want to make this morning is one that I really think you need to pay serious attention to. You see my friend the Devil is a great listener to our prayers and he's very attentive to our wants desires and our dreams that we share with others. Therefore he's an expert at sending distraction prior to the real deal happening in our lives! As one who has experienced this evil before, I would like to share some tested and proven advice with you this morning.
After making your requests known to God, after sharing your wants, desires and aspirations with others, always and I really mean always ask God to overwhelm you with his spirit of discernment so that you'll be able to decipher if what you are into or about to get into is of him or not. I promise you that this seemingly simple piece of information will determine either joy or misery for you. In fact scripture supports what I am saying to you with the following, "Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not on thy own understanding. In ALL thy ways we must acknowledge him and as a result he will direct our path or make known to us what is real" Proverbs 3:5-6.
Someone needed to read this this morning......DISTRACTIONS ARE TRAPS TO PREVENT THE REAL THINGS FROM HAPPENING IN YOUR LIFE.... I CURSE AND BIND EVERY SUBTLE AND BOLD SPIRIT OF DISTRACTION AND COMMAND IT TO EXPOSE ITSELF IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS CHRIST. AMEN!
