Distractions

I read a great quote that said, "If Satan can't tempt us with destruction, he'll tempt us with distraction."

How true! Satan tempts us to get off God's perfect path by distracting us with a plethora of "good" things: things that seem beneficial, that seem profitable, things that may even have the appearance of godliness.

We have all been given a specific course, a path to pursue in both walking with God and in accomplishing His will for us. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them. Ephesians 2:10

Like Paul, we need a single-minded focus to pursue the upward call of Christ Jesus: Let us throw off everything that hinders us from running with perseverance the course marked out for us. Hebrews 12:1

What are the distractions in your life? What things are stealing the precious hours of your days? This week, spend some time in prayer asking God to reveal to you the things that are distracting you from His purposes, from His perfect path for your life.
