***As I sat scrolling through FB this morning, my heart ached seeing all the frustrated people. Bitter about, life in general. And it made me realize how Good the enemy is at distracting us. You see the Devil desires that we never reach our potential for Gods purpose in our lives. He desires that we always fall short of the promises of God through continuous failure & compromise. He wants to shame us, weigh us down, and keep us in a place of discouragement and discontent. Ultimately to keep us from our goal of knowing God more. Satans mission is to separate you from God using ANY means necessary, including distractions from family, jobs & busyness of life.
His ultimate goal is to stunt the growth of the kingdom of God by keeping Gods people, weak, powerless and distracted. People may ask, how do I defeat him, how do I stay more focused? Answer: As you spend time with God it is then that you absorb His nature and power and the ability to recognize the enemies tactics. That’s how you beat him at his own game!***
