“Be on your guard and stay awake. Your enemy, the devil, is like a roaring lion, sneaking around to find someone to attack.” I Peter 5:8 (Contemporary English Version)
Have you ever started a new project, a new regimen, or a new plan that you were excited to start? You stayed the course for a few weeks or a few months and then BOOM-life happened. And in the process, you lost focus on the very thing that you were so happy to begin.
I’ve been there and can honestly admit that I have allowed the cares of life and my own personal feelings to distract me from doing the things that God has placed upon my heart to do. I even attempted to make excuses as to why I wasn’t able to do these things. But as I was praying and crying out to God this past week, He reminded me of the plans He put in my heart and that these plans are not based on how I feel or even my own ability. He reminded me that He has already provided me with everything I need to succeed-I just need to fully trust in Him (Prov. 3:5-6)!
So I challenge you today; if there is something that God has placed on your heart to do-don’t delay! Seek after Him for instructions and timing. Don’t let distractions or the enemy cause you to give up on your assignment!
Remember that God loves you and so do I!
