The Real Reason You’re Off Course in Life

The Real Reason You’re Off Course in Life

Have you been knocked off course in life?

Have you been distracted from running the race that God called you to?

You were running a good race. Who cut in on you to keep you from obeying the truth? That kind of persuasion does not come from the one who calls you.

Galatians 5:7-8 (NIV)

The distraction DID NOT come from God, so we’ve got to stop blaming Him for the things that are drawing us off course.

It’s the enemy that cut in on you…distracting you with sickness, financial trouble, relationship issues, the election, social media, and any number of things.

The enemy wants to get your focus on that – instead of on God and “His great and precious promises”.

Get your focus back on the One who called you and on what He called you to!

Because where you focus is where you’ll go, and you don’t want to end up someplace you really didn’t want to go.

I certainly did!

Hope that helps you refocus on Christ in us, instead of what’s going on around us or coming against us!

And remember – God is good…and life should be too!

You were running superbly! Who cut in on you, deflecting you from the true course of obedience? This detour doesn’t come from the One who called you into the race in the first place.

Galatians 5:7-8 (MSG)

🗨️ Quote of the Week

“For many of us the great danger is not that we will renounce our faith. It is that we will become so distracted and rushed and preoccupied that we will settle for a mediocre version of it. We will just skim our lives instead of actually living them.”

John Ortberg
