The Veil of Distraction

“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.” Phil 4:8

What is your focus?

Many are covered by the veil of distraction. Scripture verses about avoiding distraction include Colossians 3:2,

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth,”

and Philippians 4:8, “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.”

Created for God

Media, politics, family and friends can be a major distraction in our lives. We greatly value time and so does the Lord. He created each person for a unique purpose and wants your time to be devoted to His cause, His efforts, His desires and His will. Give time to Jesus in prayer and meditation, yield your will to His and He will reveal your intended purpose.

Be still and know God

How do you use your time? Is time set to read Scripture, pray, worship and meditate? Do you give time to hear from God? Few ever hear God or angels speak audibly to them. God usually speaks in thoughts or ideas.

The wholeness connection

In my own experience with the Lord are wholeness connections, profound moments.  I sense His power and presence in just a brief moment and am flooded with forgiveness, love, rebuke, peace…. Although difficult to describe, I hope for a wholeness connection every time I meet with the Lord.

The challenge

Pursue God without distractions, which is presently difficult for me with three children in the house. Uninterrupted time with the Lord is possible with effort. Isn’t the Lord worth your efforts? Ask God to unveil the distractions that unnecessarily consume your thoughts. Let Him unveil you and bring into your sight His purpose.
