Turn off Distractions

Our modern-day living presents us with many distractions in the form of technology; stuff; money; hobbies; relationships; cell phones; Television; and so on. Whilst possessing these are not bad, (Mark 4:19) warns us about the worries, deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for things that choke the word.

Multitasking is a myth. We mustn’t allow these distractions to expose us to spiritual slumber that leads to a break down in our personal relationship with the Lord.

My friends, how do we proactively turn off distractions and seek God in a world that tells us the opposite? The Word of God in Psalm 34:4 provides us with a roadmap “I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears”.

Seeking the Lord can be done by creating a minimum of 15 minutes every day just thinking about God, reading the Bible, thanking Him and renewing our mind for better living.

If you are a Christ follower, renew your mind daily this week. If you are currently not a Christ follower, Jesus loves you – surrender your life to Him.

All glory to God!
