My sister, who are you pursuing?

“I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14

Years ago, God gave me a dream of two birds flying in the air at full speed. One bird was chasing after the other, and as they flew into a private garden, one of the birds flew up, and the other flew right into a brick wall. All I saw was dust and feathers. When I woke up, Holy Spirit said, yeah, you will be the bird that flies into the wall if you don’t let go of this friendship. During that time, I was trying my hardest to repair a broken friendship that God was trying to tell me to let go of. She had made it very clear she no longer wanted our friendship, but I thought to myself, “I’m the founder of Daughters of the King Daily Devotional, and this doesn’t happen to me. Not on my watch! I’m going to get this friendship restored if it kills me.” And it almost did!

Maybe it’s a romantic relationship that’s become abusive, an unhealthy friendship, a business partnership gone wrong, or a ministry endeavor that started out great until the devil came in and brought misunderstandings and offense. My sister, if God has said for you to leave someone alone, then leave them alone. You may not understand His instructions or His warnings right now but heed them anyway. Don’t risk destroying your life because you refuse to let go of who He has told you to let go of. He’s your loving and protecting Father, and He sees what you don’t see, He knows what you don’t know, and He has your absolute best in mind. If you’re going to chase after anyone, chase after Him, my sister, and chase after His purpose for your life!

Prayer: Father, I receive your wisdom and your warning. Help me trust you and obey you even when I don’t understand. You’re only trying to protect me because you love me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

I honored my marriage but at the same time I feel rejected from him my husband and do not want to leave my home that we share for 19yrs so yea I agree with this Devotion on what I have to do… Thank you..

    1. It’s not about a divorce
      It’s about letting go of self to restore what the enemy has stole
      God will never offer a door way for divorce
      Just think of what has caused division
      Let Father restore it
      Let go of past hurts
      Open wounds
      HIS love will cover a multitude of sin

      1. Let Go and Let God fix it! Praise the Lord! God is so good. If we can just learn to get out of His way, and let God be God! Thank you Sister Kesha and DOTK Family for always sharing God’s truth and His on time word! To God Be The Glory. Amen πŸ™πŸΎ

  6. This word was definitely for me and confirmation to me. I will continue to let go and let God have His way. I’m pursuing Him everyday. He is everything I need. My destiny is in His hands not man’s.

  7. I know I have opened doors Father has told me He will close yet I keep opening them
    This reality has showed me He isn’t playing close it or He will give me over to my sinful desires to please my own selfish needs
    Thank you for speaking truth
    Father isn’t playing it real life truth or lies
    He has been showing me I refuse to listen and run back to what comforts me
    Instead of running to Father who will never leave me nor forsake me
    My x keeps telling me good bye keave him alone I keep running back for lack of security that I think he can give me
    This is a lie only Father can secure in me Himself
    I cried the whole time I read your devotional
    It’s my life story thank you so much
    Father is not playing
    No more or else
    Thank you again πŸ’žπŸ™

  8. This was sent to me this morning from my sister-in-law. You all really don’t understand how right on time this came to me before I made a BIG mistake!
    It was confirmation to me that GOD is watching out for me, more than I ever realized and I thank GOD for using my dear sister to send words of wisdom.

  9. Father, thank You for this message from Your heart for me, and I receive it!! Thanking You for confirmation on what I just let go. I’m to seek You more in this time of the things I let go. Thanking You Holy Spirit for Your wisdom and guidance, and I know You will lead me all the way as I trust that You know what is best for me. I don’t understand it, but I know You have a reason. I ask that You bring more understanding and help me to be obedient to Your will about this situation. I’m casting all of my care upon You because I know You care for me. I’m coming to You that I will find rest, and have a deeper relationship with You, Father. I love You and I’m know You love me. πŸ™ ❀️❀️❀️

  10. why has the Lord stopped speaking to me and do so through you? why is that, can you answer me. There is someone I know that I had a business venture with that completely destroyed it. The lord warned me several times telling me to cut the person off, in Psalms, Ecclessiastes, Phillipians and through my pastor. But the devil as cunning as he is, kept telling me that God would never tell me to leave a humble person behind (because this person was considered poor and humble) God told me three times, in Phillipians to cut the person off, then he said when he saves me from something do not return to it, as it is like a dog returning to its vomit and when I did not listen he manifested a dog eating vomit before my eyes, on the day I visited a work site to set up a business with this person then the Lord told me walk with the wise become wise walk with fools they lead you to ruin and this person ended up completely destroying my business. My question is though, have I stepped so far from God that he can no longer speak to me direct;y, why is he using you to do this?

    I actually did not see this devotional until I was calling the person who recently resurfaced in my life now at my lowest point and while I took up my phone to tell them that I no longer have time for this friendship nor do I want anything to do with the person, this pops up on my computer.

    Keshia continue following the Lord.
