DON’T GIVE ROOM FOR DISTRACTIONS

”And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” 

Philippians 4:8 (NLT)

 
In this present age, mental health has become one of the common troubling conditions.
 
And this is not only with the aged. Most young people are struggling with mental health issues.
 
Most people seem to go through a lot of mental torture and struggle.

This includes people who are born again in Christ. People who should put on the shield of faith, have been dominated or swamped by fear and troubles.

These things are caused by little distractions and then they grow into unbearable conditions. Some steer off from their faith in Christ and the good works the Lord has ordained for them to walk in; by some seeds of uncertainty and distractions.
 
In this present age of avalanche information and pluralistic worldviews. People are easily distracted and lack the stamina to maintain a strong composure.
Most people don’t know which is the right way to think.
They have become students of social media and not ardent disciples of Christ. Instead of being raised in the school of the Word and the Spirit, people are schooled by comedians and content creators who are interested in creating traffic on their platforms.
You cannot function in faith beyond what you think, see with your mind, hear and speak.
The adversary is after your faith.
 
One of the things to do to maintain great faith is to imbue focus.
 
The greatest strategy of the adversary is to distract your faith.
 
The adversary distracts the focus of your faith with thoughts which are contrary to the word of God. This is why it is essential to fix your mind on the word of God and not what happens around you or how you feel.
 
For the adversary to attack the faith of Job, he went after the things which he loved or are connected to him (his family, his livestock etc)
 
For the adversary to attack you, he can even use the negative comments from family relatives, lecturers or teachers. Past negative and hurtful experiences, including social media trends, can sweep you off your joy.
Until you intentionally imbue focus you will be a slave to the peripherals.
You have a mandate to fulfill. Don’t give room for any distractions, IMBUE FOCUS!
 
Set your mind or heart, your thoughts and imaginations on:

– what is true and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable.

– Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.

Where else can you access these beautiful things except the GOSPEL OF JESUS.

Apart from the WORD OF GOD, you cannot access TRUTH.
Don’t start looking for bad reports and negative experiences in your life.
Don’t allow the experiences of some public figures define your life. None of their experiences qualifies to be an example for you.
You are of God.
 
If it is not praise worthy don’t give your mind to it.
There are more glorious things Christ has done for you, make them your meditation.
 
Remember:
that the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledgment of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. Philemon 1:6 (NKJV)
 
Selah.
DIG DEEPER
(2 Corinthians 3:18; 10:4-5; 1 Peter 1:13; 5:8; Proverbs 4:25; Hebrews 3:1; 12:1-2; Colossians 3:1; Philippians 3:12-14)
 
WE PRAY
In the name of Jesus, that nothing shall be strong enough to distract us. That by the supply of grace, we imbue divine focus in the midst of all distractions in this present age.
 
 
BIBLE READING IN THE YEAR 2023
DAY 236

DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I fix my mind on the word of God.
 
– I don’t give room for any distraction, I imbue focus.
 
– I don’t allow the experiences of others to define my life, my life is defined by the word of God.
 
– I don’t pay attention to the peripherals.
 
– I maintain my heart and mind on my mandate irrespective of staggering oppositions.
 
Oh Hallelujah, Gloreeeey!!!
