My beloved, the enemy is targeting the land with distraction. He is in overdrive charming people’s eyes. Before they know it, their flesh is hooked into unsuspecting sin.
Some of these sins are recognizable. But for most of you, he is tempting with innocent acts that morph into idolatry. Overindulging creates an imbalance of priorities, disrupting all sorts of things like your time, energy, resources, relationships, rest, health, destiny, and most importantly, intimacy with Me.
The enemy affects these areas by seeding your garden with weeds. He gains access when you sin. When your eyes are on Me, you notice the seedlings and can pluck them out easily through repentance. But when your eyes are distracted, the weeds take over, choking out all of your beautiful growth and fruit. It’s at this point you feel hopelessly entangled.
But alas! I have exposed the enemy, and there is hope. I am your liberator and restorer! In Me, your victory is found, for I have already overcome! Through Christ, you have authority over satan and ALL his power. You do not have to feel stuck any longer. Through My Spirit, I give you power to overcome distraction and tear down every idol! I release over you a supernatural strength, focus and self-control. Receive this gift. Rise up and break free today!
Activation: Ask God to highlight any distractions that have caused weeds to overtake your garden. Take authority and become free by saying this prayer:
Father, thank you for exposing Satan’s schemes so I can receive freedom today. I humbly acknowledge becoming distracted and falling into sin. Please forgive me. Specifically, I repent for [name each sin or idol here]. I command these chains to be broken off of me right now in Yahusha’s name! Fill me with Your power, self-control and a renewed Kingdom focus. Reignite my call with Your righteous fire. Thank you for liberating me and putting me back on track. I declare to keep my eyes fixed on you and make good use of my time. In Yahusha’s mighty name, Amen.
25 Look straight ahead, and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
26 Mark out a straight path for your feet; stay on the safe path.
27 Don’t get sidetracked; keep your feet from following evil.Proverbs 4:25-27 (NLT)
The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And Yahuah is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, He will show you a way out so that you can endure.1 Corinthians 10:13 (NLT)
15 So, then, be careful how you live. Do not be unwise but wise,
