“…let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before…” —Proverbs 4:25 (NKJV)

Do you want to be a success in life? Do you want to achieve so much within the shortest possible time? Do you want to struggle less but still make a lot of progress in life? Then you must consider identifying your distractions because this is one of the major tools, which the devil uses against us today to keep us in a place of unfruitfulness and stagnancy. The devil knows that He does not have power over you because that right has been taken away from him and it was taken away by Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the risen Lord. So, what he does is try to manipulate you because he knows that this is the only way he can get to you. He is full of schemes and strategies and all these come in the form of distractions which we most times fall for because these things come in disguise. In most cases, he uses the things we love most to keep us away from our dreams and goals, and when he comes through this area, it is very difficult to recognize what is happening behind the scene but thank God for the Holy Scriptures which lets us know that, we must not be ignorant of the devices of the devil (2 Corinthians 2:11)

So, make a conscious decision to outsmart the devil by identifying your distractions. When you are able to figure out your distractions, you have identified the key to your success. Every distraction holds the key to your next level. If you can override the distraction, you will step into greater things. Distractions are a stronghold that comes to take our focus away from the goals and dreams that we have purposed to achieve in our heart. When distraction is at work, you find yourself channelling all your strength in the wrong direction and investing your time on the wrong agenda. But when you are able to take your focus off the wrong agenda, your focus surely will be directed to the right things, which ultimately brings you a promotion. So, choose this day to identify the things in your life that bring you distractions. It could be your friends, a habit, an appetite or even the places you go to. Whatever it is, identify them early and do away with them, because God’s plan is to see you focused on achieving the things He wants you to achieve. And that is why it is written in the scriptures saying,”…let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before…” Proverbs 4:25 (NKJV)


When you identify your distractions, you identified the key to your success!


Thank you, Heavenly Father, for revealing to me the dangers of distractions. Now I am equipped with the right knowledge to handle every distraction. I declare that by the power of the Holy Ghost, all distractions are removed from my life and I am making progress in every area of my life in the name of Jesus. Amen!
