What Causes You to Get Distracted


November 30, 2020


Isaiah 7:3-4 (KJV)


3 "Then said the Lord unto Isaiah, Go forth now to meet Ahaz, thou, and Shearjashub thy son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field;

4 "And say unto him, Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be fainthearted for the two tails of these smoking firebrands, for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and of the son of Remaliah."


Before advancing forward with our mission, there are four things found in Verse Four that I feel would be helpful for us to look at here for a moment. It may take a few days for me to get my point across so please bear with me.


1. Take Heed (take care): To heed something is to listen to it, pay careful attention to it, or otherwise observe, or acknowledge, it in some way—and often to take action on it. It's most often used in the phrases "take heed," "give heed," and "pay heed," which all mean to listen or pay attention, as in "Take heed to what he says, for he is very wise."


2. Be quiet (be calm) Adjective: calm, peaceful, and tranquil means "quiet and free from disturbance." Calm is used when someone is not excited or upset, even when there is cause for it. "They stayed calm during the fire." Peaceful is used when someone or something has reached a quiet state after some period of disturbance.


3. Fear not (have no fear): used in speech to say that there is no reason to be afraid or worried.


4. Neither be faint hearted: If you say that something is "not for the faint-hearted," you mean that it is an extreme or very unusual example of its kind, and is not suitable for people who like only safe and familiar things.


Thank You, Father, for giving us some things to look at and then move us forward with a plan and a purpose for our mission. In Jesus' name, Amen.


Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
