Steven Furtick: Satan Will Try to Distract You. Here's How to Stop Him.
Pastor Steven Furtick says Satan will try to distract you from fighting him by instead creating other obstacles or battles you need to fight. In a sermon clip posted to YouTube, Furtick gives the story of David and Goliath as an example, positing that Eliab—David's older brother—was meant to be a distraction to David.
"This is what always happens when God is trying to do something in your life," Furtick says. "The enemy will always present another enemy—that is not the real enemy—to keep you distracted from fighting the one that you're called to defeat."
