I recently had to step back and take a look at my life. Many opportunities arise, but some of those are distractions. Here are a few things I have learned about weighing out if distractions or God-sent or hell-sent.
- Not every GOOD thing is a GOD thing! Just because it is good doesn’t make it right. People do lots of things that feel good only to reap consequences that leave them with regret.
- That consistent nudge telling you to run the other direction is most likely the Holy Spirit. It is called conviction – letting you know that God does not want you involved. Don’t ignore it!
- Give it time! Do not make a hasty decision! God will either confirm it through Scripture, prayer, and godly counsel or He will reveal that He has no part in it.
- If it is hindering you from giving God and family your best, you need to either remove it or better budget your time.
Do an inventory of your life today! If certain activities or people in your life are distractions keeping you from what is most important, it’s time for a change. You may even have an unhealthy attachment to whatever it may be, but a distraction is a stronghold that must come down in the name of Jesus.
