For those that are walking in faith, an Attitude of the Undistracted will keep us undeterred…
When word came to Sanballat, Tobiah, Geshem the Arab and the rest of our enemies that I had rebuilt the wall and not a gap was left in it—though up to that time I had not set the doors in the gates— 2Sanballat and Geshem sent me this message: “Come, let us meet together in one of the villages on the plain of Ono.”
But they were scheming to harm me; 3so I sent messengers to them with this reply: “I am carrying on a great project and cannot go down. Why should the work stop while I leave it and go down to you?” 4Four times they sent me the same message, and each time I gave them the same answer.
An undistracted attitude will keep us from getting stopped by the enemy. Unless we we give up, there is nothing that he can do to stop us.
If we are undistracted we are able to focus and do that which God has called us to do.
Distractions come in many forms. You are constantly being pulled away from what you are supposed to be focused on in your life. We need to mimic how Jesus lived in that He never was distracted from His mission.
Characteristics of those with an Attitude of the Undistracted…
- they prioritize what needs to be done and they stick with it
- they have great discernment
We need to plan to neglect things that will distract us from getting what we need completed.
Sometimes the enemy cannot distract you and pull you away from your work. He will then try to drive you inward, where now you do not want to come out to the world and talk to anybody.
We cannot be fear-driven. Continue to stay on course. A lot will come in to try to distract you, but you stay true!
