Distractions

Distractions…

In 1941, the Japanese ambassador was in Washington D.C. It seemed he was there to seek peace. But at the same moment, the Japanese empire was about to launch the attack on Pearl Harbor. They had sent their ambassador to Washington as a distraction so that the American government would have no clue what was about to happen. Distraction is a key strategy of warfare. The aim is to keep one’s enemy bogged down with falsehood or non-essential battles – that he loses the real war.

Satan also uses distractions to take you away from your calling and your victory. He wants you to get caught up in issues which mean nothing, secondary doctrines, personal rivalries, pointless worries, fruitless endeavors. He wants you so bogged down with losing battles so that you stay far away from the good fight you’re called to fight. And you’ll be so exhausted in the wrong fight, that you’ll lose the war.

So all the more reason to fix your eyes straight ahead, and don’t be moved. For the devil is in the distraction.

Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. 1 Timothy 1:4

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
