Desires of the enemy: Distraction

Desires of the enemy: Distraction

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. - 1 Peter 5:8


We live in a world of constant distractions.

Notifications on our phones - pulling us to read the latest email or see the newest update in our friends’ lives. 

Advertising and influencers - telling us about the best products and services we should be buying.

Problems, pain points, and hard circumstances - arising just as we’re about to step into the will of God.

These distractions are no coincidence, friend. There’s a good chance they are tactics of the enemy, strategically placed in your path to take your focus off the Lord.

The Bible tells us in Luke chapter 21 that the Kingdom of God is near. But we have to be careful not to be so consumed with the cares of the world and the distractions of the enemy that we’re caught off guard when Jesus returns.

“But be on your guard. Don’t let the sharp edge of your expectation get dulled by parties and drinking and shopping. Otherwise, that Day is going to take you by complete surprise…” (Luke 21:34 MSG)

As we go throughout the day, let’s make a point to be on guard. Let’s be aware of how the enemy may be trying to distract us so we can intentionally choose to do the will of the Lord and walk in the fullness of His presence.

Holding the Tension

These past few years, we have been holding the tension like never before. It seems like every day we are flinching from the news both in our communities and our nation. The heaviness and the relief.The grieving and the celebrating.The division and the community.The questions and the solutions.My head and heart are reeling in the most unfamiliar way.One of the sweetest gifts is to be able to honestly share all these feelings with my community, and I truly hope that you have a safe plac...
