Living in this world there will always be distractions, things that try to take you away from your goals, away from your heart’s desires. The devil will try to take you off your course by distracting you.
These distractions don’t necessarily have to be bad things, they may even look like a good idea at the time. But taking the distraction on- board will take you on a detour from your journey set out before you.
Therefore, we need to have our goals written out and our course plotted.
Then when the distraction comes you can clearly see if it will take you off course. There will always be someone or something that will want your attention, something that you will always need to do, but you must be convinced in your heart where your focus is and stand firm in that.
These distractions may come with a lot of pressure for you to do something. Always remember this, God does not put pressure on you. He doesn’t force you to do anything. He leads you and guides you by peace. This pressure is not peace and if you follow the pressure you will soon feel your peace go.
So, remember your goals, keep them before you and stay focused on them. They will come to pass if you don’t let the distraction take you from them.
Habakkuk 2:3 (TLB)
KEEP YOUR GOALS IN SIGHT SO YOU CAN HAVE THEM IMPRINTED ON YOUR MIND
