It doesn’t feel good, but it is producing something good.

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17

“For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.” 2 Corinthians 4:17

My sister, everything we are experiencing in this season has been preparing us for the next level of glory. People are going to wonder how are we able to operate on such a high level. It will be because of all the Lord has taught us in this season right here. We prayed for God to take us higher. We asked Him to deepen our trust in Him. He heard us and to get there, we go through what the Bible calls, “light afflictions”. It doesn’t feel good, but it produces something good. The things we go through works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory. God will turn all of it into one powerful testimony that will cause others to come to a true knowledge of Jesus. This glory will follow us into eternity!

Prayer: Father God, thank you for speaking to my heart. Thank you for everything you’re bringing me through. It doesn’t feel good, but I thank you it is producing something good. It is preparing me for the next level of glory. Help me to continue to trust you as you take me from faith to faith and from glory to glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. Amen this was a Prayer that I needed. Because I know He is preparing me for the next level in my life.

  2. Amen
    God has me in a new spot (a new job) and he is teaching me new things.
    Thou I knew how to do things, I’m learning a different way of doing it.
    And it is a little bit uncomfortable., but I know the place God is taking me is gonna outweigh where I’ve been.

    1. Yes GOD has showed me so much this affliction has been a Blessing more study time , Family time and a career change I didn’t know what job I wanted till I had the time to pray and stop rushing so I thank GOD for this and I have been enjoying resting my body

  3. Hello sisters,
    God is shedding lots of old emotions and is showing me the ugly in me. I don’t like it. I didn’t know I was so broken hearted and resenting life. But I believe HE is mending my heart. It doesn’t feel good. I have good and bad days but I truely believe I have to go through this in order to be on the next level. So many emotions involved from 2 failed marriages and having no father in my life. Be blessed sisters.

  4. What an Awesome Amazing Blessing to speak over yourself. For Jesus says if you have faith of a mustards seed you can tell that mountain to move and it will moved. Nothing is a suprises to Jesus Christ. He left us with the Holy Spirit. For,He Knows what we gone through ,where we are and Who, are what He will uses to see us through.
    Thank you Lord for using your daughter, my sister in Christ to encourage your (child)ren daily. Much love in Christ Jesus.

  5. I am struggling through a separation from my husband who isn’t making the right choices. It is much more than uncomfortable – it hurts! But I needed to hear this today to remember that God is in control and that at the end of this painful season is a new and better one!

  6. Ms. Trippet. Your devotions and prayers are right on time, and they remind me.that trustining in God is key and so much better than worrying.

  7. I was just experiencing doubt in my mind last night. When I read the devos I feel like they are what I need to keeping trusting and believing that God hears my prayers and just waiting the exact time to give it to me.I will trust in the Lord with all my heart. I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the livinvg and remain confident in that. In Jesus name Amen!

  8. This journey is so profound and so uncertain but one thing I know for sure is, being a kingdom citizen right now couldn’t be more awesome than it is for my family and I and countless others who are experiencing the peace that surpasses ALL understanding. It’s so hard to believe there’s such devastation and sadness outside our walls, if it wasn’t for the TV, we wouldn’t of believed it. I’m not bragging believe me it’s totally the opposite. I cried because we’re at peace in the middle of everyone else’s sorrow, who don’t truly understand what it is to truly be Jesus’ kingdom citizen; but God rebuked me. We as kingdom citizens can be heartfelt and prayerful but not allow satan to still our gift of joy and peace during trials and tribulations. I wish I had the space to truly tell our journey it’s truly an amazing blessing. God bless you so much for your obedience in creating, ” Daughters of the King,” it’s truly awesome to be reminded of who we are as daughters, of the King!

  9. Thank you for this word. These devotionals through Gods word and vessel are always on time. I often smile and feel Gods wink because, thats the power of HIS word and divine provision. If you seek Him, He will provide guidance in ways and wonders. I recently moved to a new church and left a church that was like family, they still are. God spoke to me and I knew I had to step out in faith. Now with the pandemic, I am unable to fellowship in peraon to get to know my new church family, online has been ok but I have been feeling lonely ans out of place, BUT God…When I pray about it, I hear that this season is necessary to cling and spend alone time with build that relarionsip that will equip me for my place and assignment in my new church. God plans stand!

  10. DOTK has been nothing but a God send. And I always hear God speak to me through the devotionals. I can just be praying about something and I’ll see an answer come through in just the TITLE. oh man God is awesome. I’ve been praying saying God you delivered me from egypt. now I have to make it to the promise. right now I’m in the desert phase. waiting to get to all God has promised. but I’ve been in prayer. I’ve been crying like God when is it gonna be over. why do I feel so weary? I keep saying God I gotta make it to the promises. and I wake up this morning and see this. I know when God is speaking. I know. He said my sheep know my voice. I know when hes speaking. This devotional just sent me on a praise break. The author of these devotionals have blessed minds. annointed minds. and God is truly using them. I ask Lord that you continue to bless the author for her obedience, for her encouraging words. God bless everyone using DOTK. In the unmatched name of Jesus Christ our Lord and savior. Amen

  15. Thank you for your faithfulness in keeping us encouraged and challenged in the word in know it takes a lot of time and dedication. Your work is appreciated.

    I did notice that the format of your devotionals changed and there is no longer a hyperlink to be able to go directly to the Bible verse. I was wondering if there was a change or if this is something on my end? (my phone did do an system update yesterday).

  16. Thank you. A lot of times we feel uncomfortable in situations but that’s because we have to get uncomfortable for God to use us his glory. Lord, use me for your glory. Even if it doesn’t feel good, in Jesus name, Amen!

  19. I’m 4 months sober today! And I never realized all my life I’ve been soothing from childhood physical and sexual abuse. I knew some things all my life but the sex stuff is coming up in my memories. And some days it feels so awful, but finally I can see where my issues are. Finally me and God are dealing with them. For the first time in my life I have hope for a future. Thank God.

  20. I’m going through a rough journey with my children and wondering if God is hearing my prayers. Sometimes I feel like He is not hearing me. I feel I have to take whatever He dishes out to me as punishment. I feel like give up sometimes but I know I can’t. God has been good to me inspire of things not going the way would prefer.

  21. Amen and amen God has been working on me praise God and I know that he is taking me higher in him I just love what he is doing in my life. Thanking Jesus for his love, mercies and grace for each day that we engage in communication with him. He pours more and more into us hallelujah. Let us continue to dwell in his secret place.

  22. Praise God, sister Keisha! Just the encouragement I needed this morning. I’m trusting and believing God for a miracle and I/my family can use all the prayers and encouragement we can get.
    God bless you and your family!

  23. I just want to say the God is so good I was in addiction for over 20 years and I was at a point in my life where I didn’t know if I was going to live or go to prison I’ve lost everything but God I remember sitting in a jail cell and I hit my knees and I said God what do you have for me make a way for me I can’t do this anymore and boy did he ever I have been clean for a year and 6 months I have my children back I have a home a car and I have a heart for Jesus it was all because of God. I’m not going to prison and I’m so excited to see the future and the hope that he has for me so when people talk about the goodness of God you have to know he is so good he is so so good he can do exceedingly abundantly more then we can ever imagine and I’m so thankful for what he continues to do in my life and the Christian people that he continues to place in my life I still have a long road ahead of me but I know now that with God I have nothing to worry about and just thank you for the daughters of the king devotionals God really uses you to speak to me thank you and have a blessed day
