ONE OF THE GREATEST CHALLENGES TODAY IS THE FACT THAT WE ARE A DIVIDED AND DISTRACTED PEOPLE.AS TIME AND TECHNOLOGY PROGRESS WE HAVE A CHOICE! DO WE STRIVE TO KEEP UP WITH EVERYTHING OR WILL WE REST IN GOD’S PEACE. WE CAN HAVE BOTH.LET NOT YOUR HEART BE TROUBLED SAYS OUR LORD.BUT THAT IS EXACTLY THE CHALLENGE BEFORE US.DISTRACTIONS.DISTRACTIONS.DISTRACTIONS.MARTHA AND MARY…WE NEED TO BE ABOUT BOTH OF THEM.OUR SOLUTION TO THIS DILEMMA IS AS FOLLOWS:
WE ARE IN THIS WORLD BUT WE ARE NOT OF THIS WORLD
A. BE NOT CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD SYSTEM
B. BE NOT AN IMITATOR OF THIS WORLD SYSTEM
C. BE NOT LOOKING TO THIS WORLD SYSTEM

EVERYTHING IN THIS WORLD SYSTEM DOES NOT NEED TO DOMINATE US

 

GOD HAS GIVEN US THE POWER TO CHOOSE

WE CAN AND MUST WALK IN THE SPIRIT AND NOT BE FLESH RULED
A. THE TEMPTATION TO BE ‘UP ON THE LATEST’ IS A COMMON DECEPTION IN THIS AGE
SATAN…THE GOD OF THIS WORLD IS INCREASING PRESSURE BY GETTING US TO BUY INTO THE SPEED OF THIS CURRENT AGE.
A. TIME IS A VALUABLE COMMODITY
B. WE HAVE DOMINION OVER IT

WE CAN CHOOSE OR NOT CHOOSE
REALIZE OUR PLACE OF REFUGE IS IN GOD..IN THE SECRET PLACE..PRAYER CLOSET..WORSHIP..INTERCESSION..PRESENCE..THE GLORY
REFUSE TO ALLOW THE SPEED AND INTENSITY DECEIVE US
OUR LORD AND COMMUNION WITH HIM IS OUR PLACE OF SAFETY…OUR ARK

 

REST IN GOD’S PRESENCE AND DO HIS WILL AND DO NOT BE DECEIVED BY THE DECEPTION OF DISTRACTIONS IN THIS PRESENT AGE
