“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.” – Hebrews 12:1
Finally, you have put every other thing aside to listen to Me! These distractions do nothing but slow you down and circumvent the work I am doing through you.
Your own efforts will never have the same impact as those efforts I am laying out before you, so stop wasting your time on things that really don’t matter!
It’s all part of the big scheme of distractions from the enemy of your soul.
He would have you spend time doing even the good things dangled before your eyes in order to keep you off track! These lesser things seem intriguing until you follow them and they lead to nothing but wasted time!
Here on earth you have your purposes, so search Me out and carefully look for them. They will become apparent to you if you search in prayer with Me as your constant companion!
These will not elude you and I am not playing games of Hide and Seek for you to somehow win! No! I desire for you to easily see what I have for you! It is in these distractions that things get away from you or seem cloudy to your view.
So, simply ask Me as you proceed through your day, “Lord, is this of you?” I will quickly answer if it is not, and this way you will know how to proceed without fail or distraction.
And when you see these things that I do have for you, simply ask, “Lord, how do I go forward with this?” And I will surely guide you; and with My right hand, I will secure your future success in all you pursue that I have designed for you!
So you can move forward with this certainty knowing you are walking My path for you – living in righteousness with Me and pursuing the matters for which I have made you!
So GO forth knowing this and with confidence that you will arrive at each destination victoriously!
“Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize.” – I Corinthians 9:24
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” – Joshua 1:9
Jill, you always have such good words to share from our Father’s heart. Love ya, Pal!
He’s a GOOD GOOD Daddy!
All Love to you!
I always love reading what you have to say, today you spoke volumes. The “little ” distractions do pull away from the path God lays down for us. Peace be with you always.
Deb, I constantly need refocusing to keep my eyes on Him.
It seems to be the battle of my life to stay near God.
Starting the day with some alone time with the Father is the best remedy I have found!
Love & Blessings to you!
