Are You Worshiping the Devil Without Realizing It?

  1. 1. Where do you focus your attention?
  2. 2. Are you distracted by trauma, living in the past, or consumed by the pain?
  3. 3. The Bible tells us that the direction in which we focus our attention is the way in which we will go
  4. 4. Luke 9:62 – But Jesus said to him, No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God."
  5. 5. Worshiping the Lord is focusing our attention on Him
  6. 6. Attention: The action of dealing with or taking special care of someone or something.
  7. 7. There are times when we focus on what the devil is doing
  8. 8. We cannot take our eyes off the pain, disease, trauma, the doctor's report
  9. 9. Satan wants us to consider his evil acts more important than what God has done for us
  10. 10. The devil loves attention
  11. 11. When we view his actions and behaviors as meaningless or of little consequence, we can actually discourage his advancements.
  12. 12. In the gospels, there is an account of the disciples caught in a terrible storm
  13. 13. Jesus was asleep in the boat and unconcerned
  14. 14. He paid no attention to the storm but, for the disciples sake, took authority over it
  15. 15. Jesus is our example: rest or take authority over storms
  16. 16. "You can only have authority over the storms you can sleep in." (Bill Johnson)
  17. 17. The wicked hope to destroy me, but I focus on your instruction. P salms 119:95 CJV
  18. 18. Pay attention to Jesus and not the devil
  19. 19. Keep your hand to the plow and high calling of God
  20. 20. (Bracket text added) Phil. 3:12-14 (Passion Translation) I admit that I haven't yet acquired the absolute fullness that I'm pursuing, but I run with passion into His abundance so that I may reach the destiny which Jesus Christ has called me to fulfill and wants me to discover. I do not depend on my own strength to accomplish this, however, I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past (demons love your past) as I fasten my heart to the future instead. I run straight for the divine invitation of reaching the heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus!
