Distraction-Free Godpreneurs – Part 2: Walk in Spirit

Updated: Dec 18, 2020

Is it even possible for me to run a Distraction-Free business? Is it realistic that I can stay on the path of my calling 100% of the time?

If I don’t believe this to be true, then I’ll lose the distraction battle. Yes, a lot of times I feel overpowered and overwhelmed by the temptation to take power into my own hands and start something new, but God’s Word reminds me that Yes, I can live Distraction-Free.

Paul wrote in Galatians:

"So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh". (Galatians 5:16 NIV)

Paul doesn’t say it will be without slip-ups, easy, or automatic, but the Bible does say “It is possible!”

So how do we walk in the spirit? What do we need to know and do? What do I do when a seemingly “god” idea confronts me and tempts me off my path?

Before we answer that, we have to confront a deeper issue: your current situation might be holding you back.

Right now you might be in a business that’s distracting you. You might be heavily invested in something that you know isn’t your calling.

And that’s OK!

Yes, it’s fine. God’s going to use that for your good!

Why? Because we are God’s adopted children. He knows the temptation is around. He knows the devil roams around like a lion, ready to devour our dreams and visions.
