One of the persons whose books I enjoy reading is Evangelist Mike Murdock, and over the years he has written numerous books. In 1997 he published a book that I cherish titled, “THE ASSIGNMENT.” Since that publication, he took that book and made it into a four-volume book series contrasting the various elements in a person’s assignment. I highly recommend that if you have not read any of these that you purchase the four-volume series; it will be a wise investment for you to make.

In all of these books, Evangelist Murdock shares invaluable nuggets, and it is one of these nuggets that I am highlighting in my blog today. Evangelist Murdock quotes, “People will be assigned by hell to distract, delay, discourage and derail your assignment.” This says to me that there is a plan in place to hinder me from doing what God has planned for my life and if I think hell is working in concert with God and not in opposition, I am sadly mistaken and delusional.

Let me briefly share the meaning of the four damaging “d” words in this nugget.

Distract = to get someone’s attention and prevent them from concentrating on something.

Delay = a situation in which something happens later or more slowly than you expected.

Discourage = to make someone feel less confident or hopeful.

Derail = to prevent something from happening or developing correctly.

With the understanding of this nugget comes the revelation that I must be careful of the people that I allow in my life and I must monitor their interaction with me to make sure that they are a blessing and not a hindrance. Therefore, I must take time and evaluate whether an individual has come to distract, delay, discourage, or derail my assignment. If I perceive that this is their assignment I must stop or limit their access to my life because they are preventing my advancement in the kingdom, and it is my responsibility not to allow this to happen.

As you read this blog today, I pray it has been helpful to you, and if you have not done this in the past, that you will begin to view people differently, and ask yourself the question, “Why have they come?”
