Prophecy: April Will Be a Month of Demonic Distractions

by | Apr 9, 2019 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

April will be a month of demonic distractions. The enemy is doing his best to allow things to happen in your life to keep you from continuing to head in the direction of your destiny! Health issues, car accidents, family illnesses, financial hardship and the like have been assaulting potential testimonies in an effort to prevent you from making divine decisions.

Keep Writing in the Sand

They said this, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him.

But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear them. So when they continued asking Him, He stood up and said to them, “Let him who is without sin among you be the first to throw a stone at her.” Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground (John 8:6-8).

Notice that Jesus paid little to no attention to the accusers of the woman caught in adultery. He didn’t fall into a dialogue with them that would possible give them reason to accuse him as well. This is the stance you should take. Don’t involve yourself in a mess unless the Lord instruct you to do so. These types of situations are demonically designed to steal your focus from the things of God. Don’t fall for Satan’s tricks! As I’m writing this, I feel that many of you have lost or are in the midst of losing your focus.

This is the month to, like Jesus, “keep writing in the sand” as the accuser of the brethren speaks curses against you and others in the background. Drown out the devil’s noise by ignoring it and him, no matter who his sound is coming through. Keep doing what the Lord mandates you to do this month. Don’t let the enemy cause you to look in his direction; keep writing in the sand, undisturbed and unbothered. If you happen to peer at him, rebuke him! Jesus did and so can you!

Stay Focused

I decree laser-like focus, though hell is literally breaking out all around you. I declare the strength of the Lord will cause you to finish the book, ministerial assignment, job or whatever your divinely called to do. Tell the devil that you will not be moved by what your eyes see or what your heart experiences. Say loudly, “I will not be moved, in Jesus’s name!” Decree that you will stay focused on that which God called you to do, knowing that the bigger the distraction, the greater the mandate (call)! Hallelujah!

Walk on Water

Matthew 14:22-31

When Jesus commanded His disciples to get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side, while He sent the crowds away. When He sent the crowds away, He went up into a mountain by Himself to pray. And when evening came, He was there alone. But the boat was now in the middle of the sea, tossed by the waves, for the wind was turbulent.

During the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. But when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, “It is a spirit.” And they cried out in fear.

But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer. It is I. Do not be afraid.”

Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, bid me come to You on the water.”

He said, “Come.”

And when Peter got out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. But when he saw the strong wind, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!”

Immediately Jesus reached out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?”

You must operate like a horse with blinders on, not looking to the left or the right, but straight ahead. You must walk over adversity, like Peter did when he walked on water, except you will not take your eyes or focus off Christ Jesus! As long as you do this, Satan will have a hard time distracting you.

Notice that Peter’s distraction was the waves (potential adversity). If the devil can refocus your gaze on potential mishaps that have yet to transpire, then he gains temporary control of your focus.

Don’t Let the Rain Obscure Your Vision

Focus on the message, not mess! Don’t involve yourself in the foolishness of men. April is known for its rain. Sometimes rain can obscure your vision, making it hard to see the goal the Lord has placed in front of you. When this happens, keep your eyes set in the direction of the sun (Son). If you do this, you’ll walk into a season of accomplishments in the month of May. {eoa}
