Distractions Are Inevitable In Destiny Defining Decisions

Genesis 19:16 (NLT)
When Lot still hesitated, the angels seized his hand and the hands of his wife and two daughters and rushed them to safety outside the city, for the Lord was merciful.

Genesis 19:17 (NLT)
...And do not look back or stop anywhere…

The objects of distraction here include,
- Hesitation, lingering, dragging of feet are all distractive strategies of the enemy to delay us from getting to where we ought to be at a given time.
-The past (do not look back).
-The present (or stop anywhere).

On your journey to destiny, always remember that distractions are inevitable. Distractions will present themselves in diverse forms, however, it is up to you to identify them and then decide not to submit to the distractions. Distractions cause delay and rob us in the process. Lot’s wife became a victim of the angel’s advice – she looked back and became a pillar of salt (vs 26).

Now, we are looking at a family here whereby, the decision made by the father (head) will not only affect him but the entire family. Yet, a form of distraction (hesitation) almost cost him and his family but the mercy of God prevailed.

Let’s tie every truth together;
Your participation is required when it comes to destiny and the driving force behind destiny is decision making. When Lot hesitated, the mercy of God intervened – the angels seized him and his family by their hands and got them out of danger. All in an attempt to rescue them and possibly get them a head start in the direction of destiny.
The Lord, through the angels, gave them a word of caution as they proceeded. “Do not look back or stop anywhere”. As much as we rely on the mercy of God in the process, always find out what your participation in the process will be. Amen!

So, although distractions are inevitable, you can be sure that you will receive help from the Lord in the process.
