Today's A New Day

REJOICE!!!! In It….

Today’s Word With Joel & Victoria Osteen – The Gift Of Today

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

“So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.”
(Psalm 90:12, KJV)

TODAY’S WORD:

Sometimes, our days can be so full and busy that we forget how precious and fragile our time on earth really is. It can be so easy to allow little things to creep in and steal our peace and joy. Maybe something didn’t go your way, or someone said something upsetting. Even traffic can cause us to get our focus off if we let it. But, we have to remember that each day is a gift. If we choose to focus on what’s wrong, we’ll miss out on the beauty that each day has to offer. 

I encourage you today; don’t let the precious moments of life pass you by. Don’t wait for holidays and birthdays to show people that you care. Remember, each day is unique and irreplaceable, a gift from heaven above. You have been given time that can be invested or wasted; hours that can be used or misused. That’s why the psalmist prayed to God, “Teach us to number our days.” He was saying, “Teach us to value every moment we’ve been given so we can live a life pleasing to You.”

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Heavenly Father, thank You for the gift of today. I choose to focus on the blessing of each moment instead of allowing the little things to steal my joy. Keep me close to You always as I submit every area of my heart and mind to You in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s Word With Joel & Victoria Osteen – Speak Vision

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

“The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.”
(Proverbs 18:21, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD:

Every word you speak matters. Something you say may seem insignificant to you, but to someone else those words can be life changing. When you use your words to lift someone’s spirit and speak words of vision and life over them, you are depositing seeds that will last throughout eternity. 

It’s especially important to speak vision into our children. As a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, teacher or friend, the children in your life need to hear on a regular basis that they can do something great with their lives. As parents, our words carry incredible weight. That’s why you should never put a child down. Don’t ever say, “You’re slow, clumsy or dumb. Why can’t you make good grades like your sister? Why can’t you hit the baseball like your cousin?” Those words are seeds. They can take root and affect that child many years later. Too many people have been crippled by low expectations. But today, all of that can change. Today, you can start to speak vision over yourself and the people in your life. Today, you can call out the seeds of greatness in others and stir up the gift of God inside. Today, speak life, speak hope and speak vision!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Father, today I choose to speak life. I choose to speak hope. I choose to speak vision. Let me see the people in my life the way You see them. Let me see the potential You have placed in them so that I can call forth their seeds of greatness in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Today’s Word With Joel & Victoria Osteen – Focus On The Unseen

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
(2 Corinthians 4:18, NIV)

TODAY’S WORD:

Every obstacle in your life is subject to change. It doesn’t matter what you may be facing, there is an answer in the unseen. The unseen is the spiritual realm where the promises of God exist. Your faith brings those unseen things into this natural realm. When you are fixed on something, you can’t be moved. There’s a determination that fuels your focus. When you fix your eyes on the unseen—the promises of God—your faith will not be moved by your circumstances, and you’ll eventually see those promises come to pass. Make the decision today to fix your eyes and mind on the promises of God. Meditate on His promises until they become more real to you than the air you breathe. Declare that His promises will come to pass in your life. Declare that you have His favor. Declare that you are more than a conqueror. Don’t allow fear and doubt to change what you are speaking over your life. As you continue to fix your spiritual eyes on the unseen promises of God, you will see those things come to pass in the natural, and you will move forward into the abundant life the Lord has for you!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Father God, today I choose to fix my eyes on You. I choose to fix my mind and heart on Your promises no matter what it looks like in this natural world. I know that Your Word is true and that Your promises will be fulfilled in my life. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Today’s Word With Joel & Victoria Osteen – Fear Not! Stand On Faith

TTODAY’S SCRIPTURE:

…”Fear not, stand firm, and see the salvation of the LORD, which He will work for you today…”
(Exodus 14:13, ESV)

TODAY’S WORD:

When you step out to do something big for God, the enemy tries to send challenges and distractions to knock you off course. He may try to send you running, but you have a promise that God is working behind the scenes for you. You’ll be amazed at what God will do in your life when you stand and face your challenges. When you take a stand, you make a declaration of your faith in God and automatically raise that shield of faith which extinguishes all the flaming arrows of the evil one (Ephesians 6:16). 

So take a stand today and stay on the course the Lord has set for you. Take a stand in your prayer life; take a stand in your Bible study; take a stand in your acts of service and giving to others. Take a stand and see the salvation of the Lord in every area of your life!

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

God, I want to fight the good fight of righteousness! I pray that I find the opportunity to make a stand for my faith today. Help me to stay the course by doing Your will and staying in the Word. Thank you for your unending strength and the promise of salvation. In Jesus’ name – Amen.
