DO NOT LET THE DEVIL SHIFT YOUR FOCUS

“Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land. And a certain man of Bethlehem-judah went to sojourn in the country of Moab, he, and his wife, and his two sons.” Ruth 1:1 (KJV)

 

Elimelech took his two sons and Naomi his wife, and they left for Moab because there was a famine in Bethlehem-Judah. The result was that they died in a strange land. Do you know that the devil wants to shift your focus and vision? He specializes in pulling you out of your place because when you miss your place, you miss your blessing. It is in your place that blessings are commanded. When you miss it, you will be beating about the bush. In the presence of the Lord there is fullness of joy, and at His right hand there are pleasures forever. Psalm 16:11.

 

You may say, Brother Mike, you don’t know what I am going through. I can’t find myself worshipping God. It certainly wasn’t easy for Paul and Silas while in prison, but that didn’t shift their focus. Acts 16:22-27. Their backs were lacerated and bloodied. But they knew that their only option was to praise the Lord. The Bible says Paul and Silas prayed and after praying, they sang praises to God. And the prison doors were opened.

 

You see, there is no accident in God. Your worship is not ordinary. I can assure you that as you worship Him, you will access heaven. “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, And into his courts with praise: Be thankful unto him, and bless his name.” Psalms 100:4 (KJV).

 

The Bible tells us in that same place where there was a famine; Naomi heard that God has visited those they left behind. Your praise and worship will bring you the favour of God. “For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; With favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.” Psalms 5:12 (KJV). Do not let the devil shift your focus. Do not let him pull you out of praise and your place of commanded blessing.
