Blockages to breakthrough: distractions

Daily Thought

Your Word for 24 April 2024

Psalm 3:5
‘I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the LORD sustains me.’

Sometimes we simply get distracted and other things begin to enjoy the focus that is reserved for God.  In life today there are so many things that can cause us to become distracted.  We end up getting so consumed by these other things that we hardly realise it, but God seems far away.  It is often, during these times, that we know something is not right, but we are simply to busy or consumed to do anything about it!
One of the major aspects is busyness. We get so busy and so much complication comes into our lives and because God is not enjoying first place in our lives, we are left feeling isolated from God.
There are many other distractions. One of the major ones that many people are facing is materialism. This is the compulsion to have more and more things. These things become our substitute for God – until we face trouble!
