Move out of the way and let God do it!

“But thou, O LORD, art a shield for me; my glory, and the lifter up of mine head.” Psalm 3:3

One of the hardest things to do is to step aside and let God handle a situation. You may have been wronged, falsely accused, and mistreated, but as angry as you may feel you have to use wisdom in how you handle it. Place your trust in God and receive His wisdom. He will guide you and instruct you. And if He says, “do nothing”, do nothing. Your nothing gives Him room to do something. He is King and He is in control. Trust that God will vindicate you. Trust that He will clear your name. Trust that He will prepare a table before you right in the presence of your enemies. Trust that He will turn the heart of the king because the king’s heart is in His hands. Move out of the way and let Him be what you need Him to be. The consequences of taking matters into your own hands are endless, but the rewards of letting God fight your battles are great! Move out of the way and let God do it!

Prayer: Yes Lord! I receive Your word. You are my God and I am Yours. Help me to step aside and let You into this situation. Help me leave it alone and trust You. You knew these things would happen way before I did. Vindicate me Lord. Be my defense. I lift You up and I put my trust in You. I receive Your peace now. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

(Read Proverbs 21:1)

  2. Hi, God knows exactly and when to keep His word and it comes Right on time,
    my husband and I are proceeding with a divorce after 22 years and I had my first hiring this day and it was ugly I got thrown to the wolves and felt like I was beat up
    I cried after we left and after I got home I opened this devoltional and it was as if God lifted my face and wiped my tears and told me this to my face and gave me a Big hug and explained it in detail
    I was so blessed and took it to heart and it made me cry even harder cause I have not been as faith to God as I should have been
    Yet His grace His understanding and His forgiveness showed He loved me and forgave me right when I needed it
    Thank you so much for being in touch at a deeper level with your spirit to connect with God for me
    Xoxo from GO
    so Blessed

  5. Thank you, the Holy Spirit spoke into my heart and I truly needed this right now. 2017 has been one huge trial. My husband and I separated after 25 years at the beginning of January. Our 10 year little girI with 4 types of Lupus who is a Make-A-Wish Child and I became homeless. I lost my 68 year old Dad at the end of January. My Husband lost his job in mid February and became very ill. He is still unemployed and in the hospital as a patient right now battling congestive heart and kidney failure. Our 18 year old daughter just got married and moved away across the country, where all the hurricanes are hitting. I was ready to file for a divorce at the end of September but I couldn’t. My little girl and I, came back home October 1st to be with my husband and little boy. Then my husband got admitted to the hospital 5 days later. During the 9 month separation my in laws came to town in May. The home that we have lived in for the past 9 years was there’s and supposed to be our little boys or husbands. We made a verbal agreement that the home was to be a rent to own. We paid off their mortgage and then it was to be signed over. To this day they have not signed it over. They didn’t like the way the house looked when they came because they had intentions of selling it to make a profit. We also think they made a second mortgage after we paid it off without telling us. So now they are constantly calling my husband and children to harass them about selling the house. Saying we need to pack up. Saying we need to kick our good renter out too, so we could move back over there. They have had all of us so lost, confused and depressed. In May, they had my husband on the verge of suicide because of them wanting to sell the house. My little girl found him in the Mesa at a shooting range writing a suicide note. He is a Veteran and is suffering from PTSD. We cannot handle their schemes anymore. They are tearing our lives apart and we have had it! We are try to rebuild our lives right now. So please help us pray to God that he will intervene. They cannot do this to us and our 6 pets. We technically have no place to go all 10 of us. Our old place is too small. A past renter used meth in there and this isn’t good for our little girl. My husband and children are so sad. All of us feel so betrayed. Tonight they called my husband in his room at the VA and made him very upset! We need him to get better but they never give him a chance to heal. They are causing him to go crazy and docs are suggesting he be placed on a psych ward because they are afraid he is going to kill himself. His father finds his mental state of mind funny and this caused my husband to breakdown and cry. His parents say they are Christians but we can truly see that they are a couple of wolves in sheeps clothing. Money and greed are more important to them than a very ill son and granddaughter. God, I hand his Dad and Step Mom over to you. Heal my husband and daughter and protect all of us in this situation. Our credit is shot and nobody is wanting to sell us a home. It’s not right, we shouldn’t have to be looking for a home or moving out…this is so wrong and unfair. Our hearts are broken but know you will fix this situation.

    1. I touch and agree Jennifer Martinez that your husband and daughter are healed and covered, you will receive a overflow of financial blessings and God will fight your battle regarding what going on with your in-laws and your home. Thank you God for giving her strength and peace in the storm… Praying for your family🙏🏾😇❤️

      1. Hi Catisha. We serve a powerful God. The impossible for us is the possible for Him. In 2011, when our little girl 4 year old Faith Hannah was diagnosed we were told to plan her funeral 3x. She wasn’t expected to make it to age 5. We will be celebrating her 11th birthday next month. God is good! I know He has a plan for us. Tonight, He protected us from being hit by a drunk driver. The persons car flipped over 2x in the air and landed upside down. Faith and I, were lost for words. Then all I could say was thank you God for your protection and then started praying for the people in the accident. Thank you for your prayers and words of encouragement,💐

      2. Jennifer…Hold On To God’s Unchanging Hands…HOLD ON!
        DON’T EVER LET GO!!
        No matter how hard it looks..DON’T EVER LET GO!!
        Be Blessed, Stay Humble & Encouraged!!!
        Your DOTK Sister In Christ, Wendy

        1. Hello Wendy, thank you and I am holding on as tight as I can. It breaks my heart to see my family’s eyes watery and the worries they have about this situation. Faith is 10 and Elijah is 13. They should not have to worry about, if they will have a home for all of us and the pets. They are constantly trying to make and save $, for us to buy a home. Wendy, just feels like a rug is being pulled from underneath us and we don’t know when or where we will land? For right now and every second we are in need of Gods peace and comfort. Thank you for your words of wisdom.🌻

          1. Hey Jennifer, And You KEEP ON HOLDING ON!! No matter how hard or rough it gets..KEEP HOLDING ON! There’s no testimony without a test!! Things WILL get better!! Read today’s Word!!! It is AWESOME!!!
            Be Blessed, Stay Humble & Encouraged!!!

      1. Hi Uselda, God is hearing the prayers. This is the 1st morning in 10 months that I didn’t wake up sick to my stomach. I’m feeling Gods peace and slowly gaining my strength to be the Proverbs 31 woman, He called me to be. Thank you Jesus for my Sisters in Christ, to help me carry this rugged cross and listening to their prayers for my family and I.

  6. Thank you DOTK for this devotion, needed this! Fathet God, I know u are with me and for me, my situation is in your hands, am stepping aside and trusting you!

  7. Hey, is this affiliated with/related to Rheta Buoy Somohano’s ministry out of Indio, Ca?? I just went to a DOK conference in Colorado Springs this past weekend & it was life-changing!

  8. Praise God, i give it to you, i surrender it to you. Thank you God for fighting my battles you can do a better job than I. Thank you Father In Jesus Name Amen 🙏🙌🙌🙌💕💕💕👐👐👐

  9. God is so amazing! My garage door broke (off track, cable came off). I worried how am I gonna pay to fix it? ‘Oh Lord pleez help me’. While in the garage cleaning it up. This beautiful guy name Kamu, drove by yelling ‘eh! U need help w ur garage door?’ he sed he was driving to his friends house n noticed my house. I asked how much, $70. When I looked in my purse I had that exactly!
    So I definitely knew this was God. When I finally stopped worrying, he brought this angel to help me out. I praised Him right then.
    God will take care of it, u have to trust that He will. Believe n know that He is…all powerful, all faithful, all loving.

  10. I am in awe of God! He knows ! He understands my situation. I was concerned He was too busy. But He is not ! He knows I read DOTK daily and found away to speak to me. He, The King Of Kings and Lord Of Lords knows.

  11. Great word!!! “The consequences of taking matters into your own hands are endless, but the rewards of letting God fight your battles are endless.” That is so true. It is really not easy but one finds real fulfillment when this truth is applied to the letter. Thanks Dotk.
