Distractions are anything that draws us away from pursuing God. The meaning of the word distraction is to be ‘drawn apart’.
Anything that draws you apart from God has for you can be considered a distraction. A distraction is something that can draw your attention in different directions at the same time. The result is confused or conflicting emotions or motives. A distraction has the ability to turn us from one course or use to another. We need to determine that we will not deviate from the course we have set – to follow Christ. Distractions can deceive our hearts.
Deuteronomy 11:16-17 Take heed to yourselves, lest your heart be deceived, and you turn aside and serve other gods and worship them, “lest the Lord’s anger be aroused against you, and He shut up the heavens so that there be no rain, and the land yield no produce, and you perish quickly from the good land which the Lord is giving you.
We distractions take root and our hearts are deceived we step into another realm. Here we can find many curses:
1. Heavens that closed – ‘He shut up the heavens’
2. No blessing – ‘there be no rain’
3. No provision – ‘the land yield no produce’
4. Dead on the inside – ‘you perish quickly’
For this reason distractions need to be dealt with ruthlessly.
