One thing I have learned the hard way, is that anytime we are spiritually distracted we are like a house full of valuables with no security system. In other words, it is easy for the thief (satan) to come and rob us. For example, maybe you spent some good time in fellowship with Jesus. In a moment that you are distracted from Christ and His Word, a person says something that offends you, and boom! satan comes in to attack you with anger, and because you were distracted from God you give in to it and lose your temper. satan just robbed you of that joy and peace you had from being with Jesus.
satan will take advantage of any moment we are distracted from God. Therefore let’s stay spiritually alert by being prayerful, keeping our minds on Jesus, and meditating on His Word throughout our day.
