Many challenges we face in life are simply distractions from the enemy to keep us from pursuing our destiny. Maybe someone in the office isn't as friendly as you'd like. Maybe you have a neighbor who always parks in front of your mailbox. Those things may be frustrating, but they have little significance when you look at the big picture of eternity. You can't allow the little things to cause strife in your life.
In scripture, just before David fought Goliath, his brother Eliab tried to confront him. But David knew that arguing with Eliab wasn't worth his time & strength. He knew his real battle was with Goliath, & he didn't want to be distracted. He simply "turned away" from Eliab & kept his focus on what he was called to do.
Let's follow the example of David & keep our eyes on what's important in life. Instead of being led away by frustrations, let's keep our focus on God. Know when to turn away from strife & receive the Mark of Honor that the Lord has for you! Amen!
