Growing Pains

Please pray for me, I am in a time in my life where I feel so much pressure and the closer I seem to get to where the Lord is calling me distractions are coming my way. Any advice on how you handled distractions, especially when some of those distractions are people that you love? Thanks!
I often found that as I was elevated in the things of God, that's when the enemy tried to attack through distractions, and disturbances. This, as you know, is the time to press into the Spirit of God through prayer so that he can illuminate the tactics of the enemy. Remember, knowledge is POWER! God will not have us to be ignorant of the enemy's devices, and the way we get our Intel is through the avenue of prayer! If the distractions are your loved ones, be sure to lovingly confront them and expose how the enemy is using them, or you can counter attack that through Spiritual Warfare to bind the enemy in that area. He knows that if he tries to use our known enemy, we have a natural enmity against them, but if Satan tries to guise his tactics through loved ones, because our emotions are involved, that's where he hopes our emotions will cause use to shrink back from the fight. Just remember that you are not warring against the person, but the spirit behind their actions. Keeping this focus will keep you keen in the Spirit realm to not be moved by what you see in the natural, but to be sharp in the Spirit.
Thought for the week: 2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. ~American King James Version
