"Guys we cannot win this 100m race against this guy, he is too fast, the only thing we can do for him to lose this race is to distract him, he is going through a messy divorce and his wife has refused to let him see his children. We will give her money so she can bring them to the race course and then we will make her scream his name just before they blow the whistle"
Allen was the present Olympic champion in 100m races, he had broken all records by winning the 100m race in 7.65 seconds but the price was too high, his wife left him and took his two children and he would do anything to have them back, he suddenly caught himself and realized that he had to focus on the race he had in 2 days, he couldn't afford to be distracted.
"On your marks, get set... Allen, I am here with the kids!" Allen looked back but his other contenders had taken off, he took off as well and suddenly realized what happened, his opponents were using his wife against him. He smiled and made up his mind to win, he would do it for his children. Suddenly he felt like a jet on nitro and broke his former record, Allen finished the race in 6:05 seconds. The stadium went crazy, everyone tried to hug and shake Allen but he ran to his children then he hugged and kissed them. Allen turned his distraction to strength.
Ladies and gentlemen, distractions are deadly, distractions reduce your speed and they sap your strength. Whenever God wants to do something in your life, the devil will try his best to distract you. Whenever the devil is passionate about making you lose focus, God is up to something!
It could be a sudden transfer from your office, it could be the sudden appearance of a friend who feeds a weakness in you! Be sensitive, the Holy Spirit will let you know it's a distraction, FOCUS on that which God is doing in your life, protect it, the answer to your prayer is around the corner.
The bible says in Philippians 3:14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
What is that goal you are believing God for this year, get a picture of it, see it everyday, continue to thank God for it, refuse to doubt no matter what you see and it will happen!
My 20 year dream is to see the Gospel preached to a billion people through the social media. You too can be a social media evangelist, kindly share and repost this Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others can be blessed just like you have been blessed. Thank you for reading. Shalom
Jesus is Lord
