Today's A New Day

REJOICE!!!! In It….

Today’s Word With Joel & Victoria Osteen – Choose Joy!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

“You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours.”
(Psalms 128:2, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD:

Did you know that having a life full of joy and fulfillment is a matter of choice? Many people are not living in victory today because they have walked around with a chip on their shoulder. They are constantly complaining, always dwelling on what they don’t have, or focusing on their problems. 

Let me encourage you to stay out of that trap. Wake up every morning and begin each new day by counting your blessings. Take time to make a list. Write down at least ten things that you are thankful for. Whatever your situation in life, find things to add to the list. 

Keep your list in a place where you can see it every day. When you feel yourself getting negative, when you’re beginning to get discouraged, check your list; read it out loud. Focus on all of the blessings that God has given you. Begin to thank Him for what He has already done for you and for all that He has in store for your future. 

Give God an offering of thanksgiving every day. As you begin to express your appreciation and praise to the Lord, you will begin to see Him pour out His blessings and favor in greater portions, and you’ll experience the overcoming life of victory He has in store for you.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

God, I am making the decision today to be a grateful person! You have richly blessed me and I am going to count those blessings everyday. When I make a daily list of 10, it will be in honor of You. In Jesus’ name – Amen.

Today’s Word With Joel & Victoria Osteen – It’s Time For An Attitude Adjustment

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”
(Philippians 4:6, NLT)

TODAY’S WORD:

Many people ask us, “Why am I not receiving God’s best? My boss is mean, my house is old, and my spouse doesn’t treat me right. It doesn’t seem like my prayers are ever answered!” When people ask us that, we usually encourage them to look at what they just said. Perhaps the answer lies in your attitude. 

Have you ever considered that maybe the Lord is waiting for you to be thankful for what you have before He will bless you with more? 

The Word instructs us to pray with thanksgiving in every circumstance. Develop an “attitude of gratitude” and see what God will begin to do. He will take you places you’ve never dreamed, and you’ll live the abundant life He has in store for you.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Thank you, God, for the blessings you have given me. I can sit here and think of so many ways you have enriched my life. Always give me an “attitude of gratitude.” In Jesus’ name – Amen.

Today’s Word With Joel & Victoria Osteen – Get Your Hopes Up!

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

“For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope.”
(Galatians 5:5, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD:

What are you expecting in life—good things? Bad things? Big things? Little things? Anything at all? God wants you to get your hopes up! The Bible says, “Faith is the substance of things hoped for.” One definition of hope is confident expectancy. Did you know that you can’t even have faith if you don’t first have hope? 

Your expectations set the limits for your life. If you never expect anything good, you’re never going to receive anything good. If you don’t expect things to get better, then nothing will get better. God promises to meet you at your level of expectancy. That’s why Jesus said in Matthew 9:29: “According to your faith be it done to you.” One translation simply says, “Have what your faith expects.” 

Make the decision to expect the favor of God in your life! Start expecting to overcome every challenge you face! Start expecting God to meet all of your needs! Live every day of your life filled with anticipation that God is going to bless you exceedingly, abundantly above and beyond your wildest dreams!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

God, I want to grow in my faith this year. I believe that You want the best for me. Help me learn to expect to be blessed and to face challenges with the confidence that You will see me through. In Jesus’ name – Amen.

Today’s Word With Joel & Victoria Osteen – Change Your Words, Change Your World

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

“Watch over your heart with all diligence, for from it flow the springs of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth, and put devious lips far from you.”
(Proverbs 4:23-24, NASB)

TODAY’S WORD:

We want to encourage you today to watch what you are saying. Your words have creative power, and you can use them as a destructive force or an instrument of blessing. If you continually speak negative words over your life, then eventual defeat will be the result. In the same way, if you speak words of faith and victory, you will see a harvest of blessing not only in your own life, but also in the lives of those around you. 

Remember your mother telling you “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all?” That was good advice. Don’t give life to your negative thoughts by speaking them out. You can’t continue to speak negative words filled with doubt and unbelief and expect to have a positive life full of joy and hope. You can change your situation by changing your words. Talk about your visions and your dreams. Declare that you can do all things through Christ. Declare you are more than a conqueror. 

When you find yourself in a difficult situation, don’t say the first thing that pops into your head. Learn to control your emotions and take those thoughts captive. When you use words of faith and victory, God will fight your battles for you. You’ll overcome every challenge that you face and live the abundant life that God has in store for you.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

God, make me an instrument of blessing to those around me. I praise You for giving me self control to hold my tongue rather than give life to negative thoughts. I want to have a positive life full of joy; let that be reflected in what I say today. In Jesus’ name – Amen.
