DON’T LET THINGS DISTRACT YOU
We believers tend to get distracted on every hand. The devil tries his best to lure us away from God’s work. I know that to be true, because so many times even I have been tempted to allow distractions to lure me away from the task that God has given me. But thankfully, every time that I was about to give in to the distraction, God stepped in and steered me back on course. I have committed to myself not to allow anything to take me away from God. That’s why I need to pray all the time. I know that the devil is not finished and will continue to try to distract me, just as he will try to distract each of you. In Luke 10:40, we see these words:
“But Martha was distracted by the big dinner she was preparing. She came to Jesus and said, ‘LORD, doesn’t it seem unfair to you that my sister just sits here while I do all the work? Tell her to come and help me!’”
In this scripture, we see that Martha and Mary are preparing a meal for the Master. Rather than focus on the task, and the recipient of the feast that was being prepared, Martha allowed herself to get distracted, comparing the amount of work that she was doing to the amount of work being done by her sister. Read the next few verses in this chapter when you get a chance to see how the story ends. Prayerfully, when the devil tries to distract you from God’s work, you will learn to remain steadfast in your prayer life, as I have, specifically asking Him to keep you from yielding to the temptation of being distracted. I am a witness that He will answer your prayer!
