Travel Light: Letting Go Of DistractionsNovember 29, 2020
LETTING GO OF DISTRACTIONS
- Distraction: a pulling apart, separating, a drawing of the mind in different directions.
- The devil doesn’t need to destroy you if he can distract you.
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” 41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:38-42 NIV
CHOOSING WHAT IS BETTER
1) Diminish the distractions.
Stay away from her! Don’t go near the door of her house! Proverbs 5:8 NLT
2) Focus on the important.
Set your gaze on the path before you. With fixed purpose, looking straight ahead, ignore life’s distractions. Proverbs 4:25 TPT
3) Listen to the voice of God.
And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. Isaiah 30:21 ESV
