Defeated by Distractions

‚ÄčThe greatest tragedy is to die without fulfilling our God given purpose on earth. -Miriam Suggs

I do not bend much when things happen, I pray but I have and am still learning to not act out so much out of emotion but to ask God to show me what’s really going on. 

I shared this part on my facebook page of God’s answers to my question: 

My children are easily distracted from my pastors, teachers, and my congregation. It’s a lot of Peter’s with no power, ready to cut off ears and shed blood but they do not know what spirit they are of. While you are being distracted by color, Satan is taking advantage of your blindside. If you are blinded he can rob you of everything I’m trying to pour out to you. You are to be like a child, easily teachable but not childish throwing a temper tantrum at every fight. I have told you the end of days will be chaotic and you refuse to listen.

When He told me that, I was like yes Lord that’s it! *happy dance* 

Division is the strategy of the enemy, satan divided Adam and Eve from God. He divided Cain and Abel. So since the spirit of prejudice is high here in the states because we love to look and live in the past that’s the door that is wide open for satan to use against us. 

My personal opinion does not matter when God has already spoken-Pastor S.V. Johnson 

1 Thessalonians 5:3-6 For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman.And they shall not escape. But you brethern, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a theif. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor darkness. Therefore  let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.

Matther 14: 28-29 

Peter is walking on water and being distracted begins to sink. When we take our focus off Jesus, we respond to things the wrong way. I was shocked to see and still seeing so many ‘Christians’ put this as a racial issue. There is only the human race and until we recognize we are not each other’s enemy more tragic things will happen. 

Eph 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against pricipalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of the wicked in the heavenly places.

When we sit at the Father’s feet and get orders from the throne, we better learn how to carry them out. Why? Because that’s how you get change, that’s how you change the world is walking in your purpose and leading people to Christ Jesus. 1 John 5:4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world-our faith. 

So when we line up  with God’s vision, understand everybody may not accept the invitation of salvation, stay focused on Jesus and don’t be distracted, then our faith we are walking in will win every victory.
