Is there a prescription for distraction?
Minister Kevin L. A. Ewing
Distraction: to disturb or trouble greatly in mind; to draw the attention of (a person) away from something. Also to disrupt the attention of someone, preventing the ability to focus or concentrate.
With the above meaning in mind, there are so many of you reading this right now that have become greatly distracted. It has become almost impossible to remain focus on anything or give the important things in your life the attention that it needs.
My friends I want to inform you this morning that you are not dealing with the definition of a word, instead your adversary is that of a spiritual nature, WHICH IS THE SPIRIT OF DISTRACTION! The average person has been faced with this nasty spirit but have adapted to it because of its subtle nature. The following signs will conclude if you are indeed oppressed by this spirit.
Have you been feeling overwhelmed, easily confused, the simplest things seem so hard, frustration and fatigue seems to be the order of the day, extremely impatient particular if you have to wait in a line or in traffic? What about uncontrollable anger, to the point of exhaustion when you would have calmed down. Then finally a sudden and intense feeling of depression and uncontrollable crying that follows? My friend's make no mistake; if you are experiencing these symptoms then you are clearly being tormented by the spirit of distraction whose ultimate goal is to disable you mentally.
Well today I have come equip with the spirit of the lord to bring you spiritual and physical relief. Firstly, we are in fact dealing with a spirit, therefore in order to defeat a spirit we need spiritual weapons. So what are these spiritual weapons made available to us? Well, Jesus said that the words that he speak, they are SPIRIT AND LIFE, John 6:63.
If the words that Jesus speaks are spirit, then clearly it is these words that we need to fight these evil spirits with. So far we understand that God's word is spirit, right? So, where is the proof in the bible that his words can heal our minds from this spirit of distraction? I am happy that you asked, scripture says, "He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destruction, Psalms 107:20. Wow! Does this mean that this word can heal my mind from this spirit of distraction and my inability to focus? YES! Do I use any scripture? No! You must use specific scriptures that relates to your healing.
So, for all of you having challenges in your mind with this spirit, I strongly suggest you repeat the following scriptures everyday to yourself or out loud even now, "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee," Isaiah 26:3 and also, "Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them, Psalm 119:165. Search the bible for all scriptures relating to your mind, one of my favorites, "God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of love, power and SOUNDNESS OF MIND. Begin to claim your rights to the soundness of your mind.
As you repeat these scriptures begin to visualize in your mind the word acting as a sword, because that is exactly what it's doing according to scripture in the spirit realm as you SPEAK THE WORD!, "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart, Hebrews 4:12.
I promise you, just be patient and consistent in your confession of the word and you will experience your ability to regain your focus and mental stability and the bonus of your life operating in its proper functioning state. THIS IS JUST ANOTHER KEY FROM THE KEYS YOU'VE BIN GIVEN TO THE KINGDOM!
Heavenly father, you said to remind you of your word, therefore I am reminding you of your word that says if we abide in you and your word abides in us whatsoever we ask shall be done unto us. Well according to your I now ask for you to exceed abundently' to the readers or this article the ability to focus, concentrate and to be cmmitted to all that they endevour to do in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen!
