Paul’s Interuptions (3/15)

Just one of many Godly lessons about Paul is his life was a picture of interruptions. I don’t know about you but I kind of lose my cool when things don’t go as planned. I am working on this (call me a work in progress in so many areas) to welcome the interruptions. Some heavy stuff here I know. Yes, God wants us to look at Paul’s life and see what it was to follow Jesus. We can even see the many moments that it was well worth all those stops.

It’s in these interruptions that distractions can creep in. You know the ones that tell you the interruption was from God and that He didn’t want you to have it. These thoughts could not be more further away from the truth. So we need to watch these distractions, these thoughts.

God built a way for us to escape this downward spiral of our toxic thoughts, the ones that distract us from the interruption beauty. “Sadly we have bought the lie that we are victims of our thoughts rather than warriors equipped to fight on the front lines of the greatest battle, the battle for our minds.” (from a devotion on bible app)

We think about 30,000 thoughts a day. How many could you honestly say are for Gods glory? With that many thoughts, how could we not change this world?!

Another thing to make us see better is every lie we buy into about ourselves is rooted in what we believe about God. Ummm gut punch big time! Our thoughts have such an enormous role to play in this spiritual world. This is why we need to keep refocusing on God. This is an every day battle. Wherever our minds go we need to keep bringing it back to God and what He does.

In refocusing we must redirect as well. We must be after Gods heart so much that we fail to see outside. Pour so much God unto your life that you can’t see anything less.

I challenge you to begin the process of redirecting and refocusing your thoughts. Remember you and I are not perfect and God knows that, but we must show our determination to do better.
