DISTRACTIONS AND DETRACTORS – PART 2  

DISTRACTIONS AND DETRACTORS – PART 2

 

TEXT: 1 SAM 17: 1-58

1Sa 17:28 David’s oldest brother Eliab heard him talking with the soldiers. Eliab was angry at him and said, “What are you doing here, anyway? Who’s taking care of that little flock of sheep out in the desert? You spoiled brat! You came here just to watch the fighting, didn’t you?”

  1. THEY MAKE YOU FEEL UNWORTHY AND IRRESPONSIBLE.

Sometimes the operations of Distractions and Detractors are subtle and silent

“Who did you leave the sheep with?”
“Who’s taking care of that little flock of sheep out in the desert”

See the CV of the man been accused of irresponsibility. Eliab knew but his ministry of distractions has a better hold on him.

1Sa 17:34 “Your Majesty,” David said, “I take care of my father’s sheep. Any time a lion or a bear carries off a lamb, 
1Sa 17:35 I go after it, attack it, and rescue the lamb. And if the lion or bear turns on me, I grab it by the throat and beat it to death. 
1Sa 17:36 I have killed lions and bears, and I will do the same to this heathen Philistine, who has defied the army of the living God.

  1. Every query that is intended to discourage me, I reject it.
    2. Every name that any member of my family has called me that you did not give me, I reject.
    3. LORD, ARISE AND MAKE ME WORTHY OF ALL THE PROMISES YOU HAVE GIVEN ME!!
    4. DADDY, INCREASE MY VALUE! RAISE MY STOCK AND LET THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE MADE OF ME!
    5. I am tired of the valley, announce me this year in front of my detractors and distractions.
    6. Every word that has been spoken to me by people I respected and is killing me – delete it in my software!
    7. I announce, (insert name) you are worthy, you are useful, you are a winner, you are relevant.
    8. Lord, put space between me and all distractive forces that is sucking away my energy for progress.
  2. THEY CALL YOU NAMES AND TALK YOU DOWN
    ” you spoiled brat” CEV
    ” I know thy pride”
    “Insolence and wicked intentions” – ISV
  3. Every tag and name of distraction that life has given me, I reject.
    10. Whatever you do for me this year – UPGRADE my name LORD!
    11. Give me a name that is bigger than financial distractions and detractors.
    12. Give me a name that is bigger than emotional distractions and detractors.
    13. Give me a name that is bigger than health distractions and detractors.
    14. Anytime distractions call me a name that you did not give to me – ANSWER THEM!
  4. THEY BELIEVE YOU CANNOT BE SERIOUS.

” you came here to just see the battle”

  1. Grant me uncommon focus in the midst of DOUBT, INTIMIDATION AND HARASSMENT
    16. Even when am being abused because they believe am not up to par, surprise them with the power of my vision.
    17. I am not here to count numbers, in the name of Jesus, I will matter!
    18. I declare to my business and ministry and calling – ARISE AND SHOW THEM THAT I MEAN BUSINESS
    LET MY LIFE REVEAL YOUR GLORY!
  2. THEY KEEP USING YOUR PREVIOUS SOFTWARE AND STATUS TO ASSESS AND JUDGE YOU.

1Sa 17:33 “No,” answered Saul. “How could you fight him? You’re just a boy, and he has been a soldier all his life!”

  1. Every outdated software that is being used to delay or destroy my destiny – cancel it
    20. EVERY LABEL THAT DESTRACTORS AND DISTRACTIONS HAD GIVEN DUE TO MY HISTORY, I TEAR THEM COMPLETELY
