DISTRACTION OR DIRECTION

This morning in Golden Valley Church, Muriel brought a great preach on apostle Paul’s prayers in Ephesians. He reminded them of all the wealth they had received in Christ, and prayed for them to see it, so they could live it.

Paul penned the letter to the Ephesians who were not grasping their prosperity in Christ and were failing to live in what was already theirs.  God looks for a church of power, not mere words.

When we pray for each other, what do we see? What do we talk to Him about? Shortcomings, failures? We don’t need to remind Him of any of that stuff.  He already chose to forget them and put them behind His back. He sees our potential and who we are in Him. His heart for us is that we live in and access the riches of His grace.

When we live in the riches of God’s grace, we will have direction. If not, we easily become distracted. Direction or distraction – where are you?

We all know how easy it is to be distracted. The ploy of the enemy to take away our focus on the Kingdom of God. Allow Holy Spirit to shine into our hearts and show us our distractions, so we can repent and change.

Where are we laying up our treasure? THAT is where our hearts will be. And THAT is where we will reap.

There is a challenge today in a world of mess and stress, that we focus back on the One Who has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness. Get undistracted!  Distraction isolates. Direction of Holy Spirit unites.
