Avoiding Distraction

Avoiding Distraction

I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways.
Psalm 119:15

Distraction is something that takes our mind away from the here and now. It prevents us from giving our full attention to the things that matter most and diverts it to things that don’t matter at all. And every minute we’re distracted is a minute we will never get back, so it’s no wonder this is Satan’s favorite tactic to keep us separated from Christ.

Satan knows the glorious future that’s in store for those who surrender their hearts to God, and as a result, he will do anything to keep us from growing a deeper relationship with our Lord. Which is why we must intentionally seek things that not only please God but bring us closer to Him in the process—morning, noon, and night.

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things (Philippians 4:8).

Making this a priority and intentionally seeking His will for our lives through prayer, study, and meditation should be our priority as believers.
