Daily Devotional – 11/20/15 “Let them have their moment!”

When folk try to assassinate your character, they’ll do AND say anything to make folk listen! Don’t worry about them, let them have this moment! Pray for your enemyWhen folk attempt to ruin your name, let them go on and try. When folk seek to destroy what you’ve built, let me continue. Why? Because the fact of the matter is this … They aren’t doing anything anyway. It’s like you are standing in the middle of a big pile of mess and no matter how much you clean and throw stuff away; it seems the harder you work and still more you have to do. It’s the same with character assassins, dream killers, name callers, rock throwers (they hide their hands tho), petty packers and messy minions. See, even when they think they are doing something, they actually aren’t. Even when they think they are accomplishing what they set out to do, (destroy you); they really aren’t. This is why I told you to let them have their moment because the harder they work the more they’ll have to do.

Oh, I know it doesn’t feel good but when has suffering ever felt good? However, don’t try to fight against somebody who is set on defeating you, eventually they’ll get tired. Yea, they’ll get tired of creating lies, they’ll get tired of stalking all your social media pages, they’ll get tired of showing up to where you are, they’ll get tired of being whooped by God; they’ll get tired but until then let them have their moment. God told you, He’ll make a table for you in the presence of your enemies (Psalm 23:5), so they have to show up but continue eating and offer them a seat. Even David says, in Psalm 109:2-5, “For people who are wicked and deceitful have opened their mouths against me; they have spoken against me with lying tongues. With words of hatred they surround me; they attack me without cause. In return for my friendship they accuse me, but I am a man of prayer. They repay me evil for good, and hatred for my friendship.” Now David asked the Lord for some harsh stuff against his enemies but you don’t have too because God is already fighting on your behalf. All you have to do is pray like David does when he picks up in Psalm 109:26-28 saying, “Help me, LORD my God; save me according to your unfailing love. Let them know that it is your hand, that you, LORD, have done it. While they curse, may you bless; may those who attack me be put to shame, but may your servant rejoice.” Let them have their moment while you pray and God provides!
