Things Piling Up Against You Are Just a Distraction

Beloved, do you feel like things have been piling up against you? Like they have been coming at you from every side? If so, listen to what Father is saying:

”Every one of the things that have been piling up against you are only distractions. 

The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy—but My Son Jesus came that you might have life, and have it more abundantly. When things come against you and you take Your eyes off Me and look at those things, you will be distracted from what My true purpose is.

There is never a reason to take your eyes off Me.

When things feel great around you, I am in control. But when things do not feel great around you, I am in control then too. If you’re looking at it from My eternal perspective, nothing has changed whether things feel and look great or bad. 

See, I know the end from the beginning. 

Because I have lived your future already—indeed, am living in it now—I am not rocked or shaken. I already wrote every day of your life in My book, and I am 100% stable knowing what your life contains.

Nothing that is happening to you is a surprise to Me.

I didn’t cause the evil things you see, but I knew in advance when your life would be impacted by the fallen world you live in. I made plans to mitigate the effects of this sinful world when I sent Jesus to destroy the works of the devil … and DESTROY THEM HE DID.

Right now, since you are in Christ, the enemy has no power over you. Nothing you see can shake your life—IF YOU WILL KEEP YOUR EYES ON ME. My Son Jesus DID destroy ALL the works of the devil, so the devil has no works left. He has only illusions, tricks sent to hinder you from seeking Me. The devil’s wiles are only distractions.

Don’t let the distractions work.

You only lose if you give place to the devil. You only lose if you leave the secret place of My Presence and power. You WILL lose if you take your eyes off Me and put your faith in what you see instead.

So don’t do it. Don’t let the devil get you down. The things that appear to be piling up against you are only distractions. Keep your eyes where they belong—ON ME. Then, and only then, will you have peace.”

Thank You, Father. I receive that.

Beloved, do you receive it for yourself too? If so, leave a comment below!

      Yes, I know the enemy wants to win over us any way he can. But Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith. He is trying to develop our faith through these trials, hardships and distractions. Even when we get waylaid by the negative we can overcome with the positive in Christ Jesus. Think on these things: the loveliness and loving kindness of our Messiah, Redeemer. He that begun a good work in me is continuing to refine me for hIS GREATER PURPOSE. aMEN.

    Absolutely, Hebrews 12:2. I just wrote about magnifying Him instead of everything else, it can be trying but keep looking up.

  4. Yes indeed I receive this word in Jesus name amen! Thank you Jesus

  5. Amen! Amen! Amen! I’m nearly in tears as I write this. Seems like the bottom has fallen out of my life–opposition and difficulty with people and systems. So frustrated, angry, wanting to give up–the Lord spoke to me a few days ago “you’re tired and frustrated because you are carrying a load that is not yours. Stop trying to do my job”. I laughed, then cried. I’m finding out that in stressful times it is so important to hear the voice of God in everything. I’m entering a new and exciting venture on my journey and natural occurences are popping up to distract me from my goals. This message is so comforting and supportive.

This one is the worst ever and I feel it’s the last major one before the breakthrough as if I am in labor and boy this one hurts! Amen!! Amen!! Amen!!!

  11. Jamie, I am praying for your mother-in-law’s recovery in Jesus’ name. I also pray for you and your husband to recover from your illness in Jesus’ name.

  26. Hi Jamie,
    Thank you for this word from the Lord today. I have a question however, hoping you and others on the group can help me with an answer.
    I’m a believer, i believe in tithing and have been faithfully giving my tithe only not to the church as money directly but have been using my tithe to buy building material towards construction of our church building. We currently didn’t have a proper church, been worshiping under a makeshift building, no flooring, no walls just a roof above us.
    I felt in my heart we needed to improve, people have been making contributions and we’re milestones now with building just a few things left. No floors as yet, we haven’t plastered but we’re happy we’re making progress.
    Now my problem is it seems my Pastor doesn’t share the same vision, he says his calling is not into construction of church buildings and he seems annoyed my tithe is buying construction materials. Yesterday i was castigated in his sermon, he says only tithe money is recognized by God not any contributions towards church building.
    I was deeply disturbed and i’m not sure now if the Lord wants me to stop if what I’m doing does not carry His blessings.
    Please help, we have come a long way sacrificing whatever so that we can worship in a proper house. I was led into this by the scripture prophet Haggai 1:4. Maybe I interpreted it wrong? Maybe it doesn’t apply to us?
    Please help…

    1. Hi Winnie, great question. The tithe is supposed to go into the storehouse, Malachi chapter 3, which is where you are fed. It is meant to support the work that the church is doing. It is not meant to pay for church buildings–a work your church is NOT doing. See the difference? If your tithe were going to its proper place into the church’s current work, it would be a blessing to you and to the church. It would help support your church and pastor and any other church staff, if there are any other church staff. As it is, your tithe is not going into the church’s work. It is going into a work your church is not doing, and it is creating a drain on your church–essentially an obligation your pastor never agreed to–and is hindering the church’s work. Even if you don’t mean to, you are using your tithe to manipulate and attempt to control your pastor, to try to get him to do something the Lord did not call him to do, which is very wrong. I pray you would submit these things to Holy Spirit, allow Him to help you see things His way, and make things right with your pastor and with your church. Then, give other offerings to help with other things, with whatever programs your pastor says your church is going to work on. I hope this helps.

  27. Amen! This is so timely!
    The head knows it, yet the heart is shakened.

  28. AMEN! I do receive it!!

  34. I am so very grateful for this message today! I have literally been feeling things ‘piling up’ for months. I have trouble giving things to God and letting go, but I have been trying to and feel that I am on my way to finding peace in Him.
    Thank you for this message and please continue to share the Lord and His never ending love and forgiveness.
    God Bless ♥️

  35. Rebecca Zurawski says:

    I am so thankful to God for your comments and affirmations!
    This is exactly where I am and have been for some years. The enemy, be he supernatural or in human, has been nipping at my heels and heart for a long time. Family members are the worse, especially because they believe themselves to be a part of the body of Christ, but gossip and lay entrapments and steal and worse.
    It’s no wonder that non-believers find us fools and Christ’s message nothing when we as believers don’t allow Him to really change us on the inside. Some of the issues with my older sister have been lifelong, and I am now 62!
    Thank you, Jamie, and God bless you!

  36. I received this word in Jesus name thank you Jesus I received this word in Jesus name thank you Jesus

  37. Debbie S. says:

Thank You Jamie for all the wonderful work you do for our Lord. I pray healing upon you and your family and mother-inlaw now and strength and more wisdom. In Jesus precious name. I pray AMEN!!!!!!!

  38. Vanina Luwawu says:

    I receive this truth. Thank You Abba…!

  39. Patricia S Hatcher-Jones says:

    Very timely word of confirmation and assurance. Thank you

  40. Praise God! This is confirmation. My pastor also gave this word just yesterday (Sunday) about being aware of the distractions that are coming. He also said keep your eyes on Jesus. Thank you Jamie! Praying for healing for you and your family. Abundant Blessings to you.

  41. Dorah Mashiteng dmmash@gmailcom says:

    Thank you Jamie i really needed that im going through turmoil so many things are happening at a short space of time but thank you for reminding me that this is just a distraction im actually feeling that good things are coming
    My the good Lord bless you as
    you are allowing to be used for the Kingdom

  42. Thank you for sharing I feel lighter my soul is with God , I have receive from him and I will work hard to not let the devil steal my joy and my family . 🙏🏽

  43. Wow, praise God for confirmation!!! Thank you Lord!! I literally just told my cousin that Peter began to sank in the water because he took his eyes off Jesus!!! Later in the conversation, I told her, at this point in my life, I’d take peace over joy.. and then I read this message from God, straight to my heart and ears. may God bless you abundantly for your obedience and may you and your family have a full recovery, in the Powerful name of Jesus Christ, Amen!

  44. I receive it, yes I do! It reminds me of the song ‘Look Up Child’ by Lauren Daigle. I heard the song today and it reminded me to keep my eyes focused on Him and not to worry what I was thinking about at that moment.

  45. I love how God speaks to ‘your’ heart for ‘us’, Jamie. Thank you for this message that is very timely and confirms what the Spirit spoke to my heart. Feeling overwhelmed by yet another circumstance pressing in, I came to the Lord yesterday and after praising Him for who He is, asked, “What’s on your heart today Father?” He said, “You.” It broke me. That response is for EVERYONE. We’re ALWAYS on His heart. I the asked Him, “Is there anything in particular You want me to know?” He answered, “I love you…you are safe.” Broken again by His love I realized on a deeper level, that it’s okay to be just a kid running to Daddy so He can tell me that He loves me and that I’m safe. He’s holding us friends. We ARE safe. We ARE loved, each of us; and Daddy, Abba, Father, won’t less us fall under the pressures of life, as long as we continue to run to Him to ‘make it better’.
