Diverting the Details of Destruction

December 16, 2008

Are you letting details run your life? It seems like I’m constantly running from one scheduled event to the next, and it never fails, that when I’m faced with the possibility of free time, something unexpected pops up. Life is full of details that if given the chance, can destroy our faith and take us far from God.

Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 that we are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.

Hard Pressed

Whether it be for time or other matters, something is always vying for our attention or our money, but Christians will never be crushed. We must keep our minds set on things above (Colossians 3:2).


Why do things happen the way they do? Why do people disappoint us in various ways? Why do bad things happen to children of God? Why is this life so difficult? Christians have many questions, but they should never be in despair.


Friends, if we aren’t being persecuted by our Adversary then we aren’t living our lives for Christ. We should expect to be persecuted, yet God has promised us that He will never forsake us and the Devil will not prevail. We will never be tempted without an escape.

Down but not Out

There will be times in this life when we will be struck down. Times that may bring us to our knees in great sorrow and grief yet we will not be destroyed. Our battles belong to our Lord and He has promised that He will never leave us or forsake us and even in times of difficulties, we are not alone.

As long as we keep our hearts on God and our minds on Christ, those daily details will never divert us from our future in Heaven.

Don’t let the details of your life keep you from living!

Christmas is coming and I hope you have wonderful time with family and friends!
