Today's Word with Joel Osteen - January 2, 2013 [Devotional]
Email ^ | 1/2/13 | Joel Osteen

He Withholds No Good Thing

Today's Scripture

For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. Psalm 84:11, NIV.

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

What do you need from the Lord today? Do you need peace, provision or guidance? The Word of God promises that no good thing will He withhold from those who walk blamelessly before Him. Now you may be thinking, “Joel, I’m not perfect. How can I have a blameless walk?” The Good News is that when you receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you automatically have a new, blameless walk. The past is erased in God’s eyes. And sure, you may make mistakes from time to time, but 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Understand today that God wants to pour His favor and honor on you. If you feel like there is anything in your life that you need to be cleansed from, go to the Father today and confess it to Him. Let Him make you new so that you can receive the good things He has in store for you!

A Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father, thank You for loving me and choosing to pour out Your favor and blessing on me today. Thank You for giving me a new beginning and making me blameless in Your eyes. Search my heart today and lead me in the way everlasting in Jesus’ name. Amen.

What helps here is realizing no one's walk was blameless until Jesus - the blameless and sinless Lamb of God. By His obedience (not mine) I am made righteous. Romans 5:19. I am blameless because Jesus was blameless and His righteousness is now my righteousness (2 Cor. 5:21). I am forever forgiven because "It is finished."
