Every season of life brings with it potential distractions of faith that can cause our faith to drift. A drifting faith sooner or later becomes an unbelieving faith, because we rarely drift in a healthy direction. There are two questions we each must wrestle with to make sure that this is not the story of our faith. First, what is preventing you from being the best version of yourself? And the second, what sin have you been holding on to that’s now holding you back? Once we know these answers, we must realign and refocus on Jesus so that we can revive our faith and run with perseverance the race set before us.
What season of life are you currently in? What season of your spiritual life are you currently in? Have you noticed any patterns in your spiritual life from year to year?
One of the ways the church gets refocused is prayer and fasting. Have you ever participated in special scheduled times for prayer and fasting? How was your experience?
Has there been a time when you were more focused on God, more giving, more faithful, etc.? If so, why do you think you have drifted from that place?
Do you find it easy to become distracted from faith? Why do you think that is?
For every season of life there are different types of distractions. What are some potential distractions that you may face during this particular season of your life? What are some practical ways to guard against those?
Have you ever truly stopped and considered Jesus and what it was like for Him on the cross? Talk about how this can impact your life.
Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
Participate in the Daniel Fast for the next 21 days to help refocus your faith.
Memorize Hebrews 12:3, write it down, and post it in places you will see often, in order to guard yourself against becoming distracted in your faith.
