Distractable Times

Posted on November 15, 2019 by America's Keswick in Victory Call

I would not consider myself to be a person that is easily distracted; however, my most distractible times are during Bible reading, prayer and worship; personal or corporate. Why is that? It seems to be a continual battle to stay focused and honestly I fail more than I succeed. I’m afraid I have grossly missed true worship.

In light of that, I have already begun to ask the Lord to teach me not only to worship but to be a worshiper. When I was a believer of about 23 years, I was just then getting around to asking God to develop this area of my life. Perhaps I was just then coming to the realization that I was not a true worshiper.
It is my desire to be a whole-hearted, true worshiper of the One True God -Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Won’t you join me on this journey? If so, begin by asking God to teach you to be just that-a true worshiper.

John 4: 23-24, “But the hour is coming and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

Think About This: Worship is giving God the best that He has given you. Be careful what you do with the best you have. Whenever you get a blessing from God, give it back to Him as a love gift. Take time to meditate before God and offer the blessing back to Him in a deliberate act of worship. If you hoard a thing for yourself, it will turn into spiritual dry rot, as the manna did when it was hoarded. God will never let you hold a spiritual thing for yourself; it has to be given back to Him that He may make it a blessing to others. – Oswald Chambers
