When God Says Stay Out of It


God’s words to me were very clear. “Stay out of it!” His Holy Spirit spoke strongly to my heart. Let me tell you, it wasn’t the first time God had instructed me not to jump into a certain situation that was filled with trouble, drama, evil, and major distraction. At times, He had led me to pray. He had even led me to help with the situation in a limited way. But I had gone beyond the limit the Lord had set for me. I had repented. Now I was on the verge of getting involved again without the Holy Spirit leading me to do so. Thus the strong warning.

I have a very strong sense God is compelling me to write this message because some if not many who read it need to hear these exact words. Stay out of it!

Friend, is there any area of your life in which the Lord is warning you to stay out of something? Or to stay out of someone’s life? To not get involved? Or even to step back from something or someone with which or with whom you’ve already gotten involved? Do you sense He wants you to stay out of it and pray from the sidelines while God deals with the situation and person/people? Or do you sense He wants you to not be distracted by whatever or whomever it is and to turn in a different direction to serve Him elsewhere? Or do you sense He wants you to spend the time you would have used being involved to be with Him instead praying, studying the Bible, and praising, worshiping, and singing to Him?

If you are clear through prayer and reading the Bible and having a strong relationship with the Lord and seeking godly counsel if/when/as the Lord leads you that God is telling you to stay out of it, you know what to do. STAY OUT OF IT!

“How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!” Proverbs 16:16 NKJV

“For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.” Proverbs 8:11
Let us pray for wisdom – and obey the Lord!
