“On what do you spend your days focusing? What is the result of your toil in those areas? Do you know that if you can be distracted from focusing on the things that I have for you, you will be led down many trails that are not designed for you? They will harm Our relationship. You need to know the importance of delighting in My Word. You need to keep your heart away from the enemy’s playground where struggle and strife dwell. In My presence, peace reigns. There is no room for lies, deceit, and murder. There is no time for hatred of any kind. Come back to where I am. I am not where others have tried to take you. Come and wait with Me while I destroy anything that is not of Me in your life. We will talk. You will be at peace once again.”
Jeremiah 2:13 NIV
“My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken Me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.”
Amos 5:4b AMP
…Seek Me [inquire for and of Me and require Me as you require food] and you shall live!
Mark 4: 24 AMP
And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you – and more [besides] will be given to you who hear.
If you and I are going to truly follow Jesus, we must begin to become wise to the tactics of the enemy of our souls. His tactics are designed to destroy our fellowship with our Father God. You can be sure that as soon as you decide to draw close to the Lord, many distractions will break loose all around you to bring you off your Father’s lap and out of His Word. Although masked in many forms, every one of them has that singular purpose.
It really is time for the remnant church to wake up and realize what is happening. Begin to ask honest questions of the Lord. What are the things that are keeping me from You, Lord? Into what trap have I fallen? Who or what is in my life to destroy me?
Do what it takes to find truth. Get wise counsel. Consume the Word. Spend whatever time needed to seek the will of your Lord. This is not some religious game that has gray conclusions. Make sure that any answer you receive lines up with the Word and then stand. You are too valuable, and time is too short for you to continue to fall for the schemes of anything that keeps you away from the Truth. Truth has a name - His Name is Jesus!
Show me Truth, Lord,
