being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Sometimes when things dont turn out the way you thought; when they dont happen on your timetable, its easy to get discouraged and feel like God has let you down. But, I believe that simply means that God has something better in store for you.
If youve been praying, obeying His commands and standing in faith but you didnt get the answer yet, now is not the time to back down. When one door closes, God always has another door.
We have to remember that the enemy is the one who is trying to bring discouragement. Hes trying to get you focused on the closed door instead of the open door just ahead. Dont fall for the trap! Keep moving forward. Keep praising God in the hallway. Stay in faith knowing that God has something better in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your faithfulness in my life. I trust You even when things dont turn out the way I had planned. I know that You are working behind the scenes and bringing something better into my life in Jesus name. Amen.
Not going to debate, but until Joel Osteen starts believing The Word of God, I’ll call him out, and state that he’s not preaching the truth!
