Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Philippians 4:8(NIV)
Anyone who has used a computer knows the frustration of those pop ups that are uninvited but yet seem to continually annoy us as we are busy online with other tasks. They may be for car repair, weight loss, a game. No matter what they try to take our attention off our work to get us to see their offerings. Some pop ups can even be X rated. They are a total distraction trying to get your to succumb to whatever it is they are offering and off the things you had set forth to do.
Pop ups remind me of how our enemy Satan tries to get our mind off Christ and onto worldly pursuits. Thoughts may "pop" into your head that certain things are okay when you know deep down they are not. Pop ups in our mind can cause us maybe to not think of heavenly things. We can become consumed about things and fall into bad habits.
Keep your focus on God and those pop ups from the enemy will become obsolete.
PRAYER: Thank you so much for the word of God which if I hide in my heart on a daily basis gives me the power to ignore attacks from the enemy. In Jesus' name. Amen.
