At some point in your faith journey, you will settle into a bargaining posture with God. “God, if you will . . . , I promise I will . . . .” We all do it. That’s just part of religion—every religion. In fact, it’s so much a part of human nature that even some atheists and agnostics do it when they find themselves in desperate circumstances. But is that really how God wants us to relate to him? The problem with a bargaining posture is we never keep up our end of the bargain, do we?
Jesus came that we might discover “life to the full,” while the enemy plots to steal, kill, and destroy. Many often miss out on this abundant joy available to them due to “fatal distractions.” It's much easier for the enemy to keep us distracted than it is for him to take us out. In this series, we’ll explore both the implications and antidotes of three major types of distractions: fog, fires, and fear.
