Today's A New Day

REJOICE!!!! In It….

Today’s Word With Joel & Victoria Osteen – When All Is Said And Done

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

“And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment.”
(Hebrews 9:27, NKJV)

TODAY’S WORD:

So many people live life worried about what everyone else thinks and wondering how they can impress other people. But we have to realize that when we come to the end of life, we’re not going to stand before people to give an account of our lives, we are going to stand before Almighty God. He is not going to say, “Why didn’t you do what so-and-so said to do? Why didn’t you fit into their mold? Why didn’t you take their opinion?” No, He is going to ask, “Did you become who I created you to be? Did you stay true to what I put in your heart?” 

This is where Saul missed it. Saul had a big destiny. God had great things in his future, but Saul was so insecure that he let people squeeze him into their mold. He was afraid he was going to disappoint somebody. He said in First Samuel 15:24, “I disobeyed the Lord’s instructions because I was afraid of the people, so I did what they asked.” Notice Saul knew what to do. He even admitted it, “I disobeyed God’s instructions.” Why? He was a people pleaser. He forfeited his destiny in order to please people. Friend, don’t let that be you! Don’t be a people pleaser, be a God pleaser because pleasing God is all that matters when all is said and done!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Father God, today I set my heart and mind on pleasing You. Help me to break away from the snare of people pleasing. Help me to stand strong against criticism and learn to walk in love always. Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be pleasing to You always in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Destiny Is Not A Drive-Thru

So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.” (Hebrews 10:35-36)

 
In my experience, there’s no quicker and more predictable route to happiness than carbohydrates.
 
What’s more attractive than the Hot Now light of a Krispy Kreme? I defy you to answer that.
 
I mention it because I’m afraid many of us want our destiny to work like a drive-thru, and our calling to come with all the comfort of glazed carbs.
 
But God’s purpose requires patience, endurance, and trust. It’s not easy, and most of the time it’s uncomfortable.
 
Don’t look for a shortcut. The harvest is work, and the reward is worth it. -Steven Furtick

Today’s Word With Joel & Victoria Osteen – Closer Than You Think 

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

“Do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.”
(Hebrews 10:35, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD:

Have you been praying and believing for something that seems like it’s taking a lot longer than you anticipated? Many times, people can miss God’s best simply because they give up before they see their “due season” come. Don’t let that be you! Be encouraged today; your answer is closer than you think! If it seems like things are getting more difficult, remember, when the intensity heats up, that means you are closer to your victory. It always seems darkest just before the dawn arrives. 

Remember, you serve a faithful God, and He’s working behind the scenes on your behalf. Don’t cast away your confidence today because your reward is coming. Just like a new mother forgets about her labor pain when she is finally holding her newborn, you’ll forget about your struggle when you are holding on to your promise. 

While you are waiting, keep an attitude of faith and expectancy. Wake up every morning and say out loud, “I’ve come too far to give up now. My due season is coming. I will reap my harvest.” Stay in faith and look for His hand of blessing because He has promised you victory, and your reward is coming!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Father in heaven, today I stand believing that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. Give me Your strength to continue believing until I see Your promises fulfilled in my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
