I have had a tough time with prayer lately and hared a few things and this was a thought that enter my mind so I thought I would look it up. Matthew 14:22-33 Mark 6:45-52 and John 16-21. We all know this story of Peter walking on the water and we will get back to it. II Samuel 2 II David and Bath-sheba 2 Corinthians 12:5-10 Thorn in Paul’s flesh I Kings 19 Elijah Flees. What do all these have to do with distractions well let’s get to it I fell that there are three main way the devil tries to spin thing down in your life besides what the world has going on in it 24*7 The first is focus to make you look around at all the problems around you I used the of Peter and Elijah to reference this the greats thing is god gave them both an answer or Elijah an answer out of a still small voice and for peter god reached for his hand. I would be in remiss to say this type of distraction can usually be brought on by ourselves for looking away from the lord. I would say a second type of Distraction is Chronic conditions we can look in the book of Job and the John 5:1-5. These are usually ailments that stay with a person for a long time and they do play havoc with a person’s life and where a person out mentally and make them tired easy for attack. Another Distraction is our own mental state what problems we dwell on things out of our control that God has allowed to happen Book of Job to test us to measure our charter or loyalty, faithfulliness . So say all to echo some thought I hear I mine as well stay home , God does not care why does this happen to me, I must have no faith, I suck, I am I am unworthy. The good news in all those the thought process is always I but to back it up with God’s word Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe. I would also say you should never try to run these problems on you r own you need to go to the lord with pray and try to find your focus and if that dose not work find someone to pray with that will pray with you tuill you can find your focus James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. It is not easy by no means to keep going some times and 1 friend can also make the difference. Now for the world distractions you will need to have enough faith In god to have him lead you away from all sin as in david and bath-sheba. Those are also just every day struggle we all must face as living a separate life stile we know those three areas the Pride of life the lust of the flesh and lust of the eyes which we all deal with on a daily bias. So What say you
