Pastor’s Pen

Have you ever been distracted and it cost something?  A distraction while driving or walking down the sidewalk?   The tactic of distractions have been used for many different reasons.  Distractions are used to make a person focus on one spot while another action is being performed and thus the illusion.  Watch the left hand while the right hand takes your wallet. A bump in the store while your belongings are removed. These deceivers use distractions to keep someone’s focus from the real action.  The great deceiver, the devil, also uses distractions in our lives to rob us of the joy of the Lord or even spending time in His Word and in prayer. He distracts us to rob our joy of salvation. Be aware of the wiles of the devil, his deception and keep your eyes upon Jesus!
