Sometimes the enemy's devices are external, but these are not usually fatal to us. It is not our failing marriages or the heartbreak of being unequally yoked that will deter us from our destinies. Nor is it being unloved or in an abusive relationship.
It is not our work, our health or our commitment to elderly parents that can stress us to the point of missing God's purpose for our lives. No, the distractions that truly circumvent our futures come from within ourselves.
If you are facing any of the fatal internal distractions I mentioned, come before God in prayer right now, while the waters of your spirit are troubled. Call out the names of your distractions. Release them and align your life with the future God has promised you in Jeremiah 29:11.
In the name of Jesus, I pray that every distraction will be canceled by the power of the Holy Spirit. I declare healing and wholeness for your life.
You will be a person of purpose. You will retain your godly focus and operate in the gifts and callings the Lord has placed on your life. The Spirit of God will stir up the gifts that He has given you, and you will go forth in the great army of women doing God's will and God's work for the kingdom.
Make your confession that you will not be distracted. See yourself with a glorious future, full of purpose and power.
You are a woman of destiny and an ambassador for Christ. You need not be distracted anymore!
