Today's Word with Joel Osteen - July 18, 2014 [Devotional]
Email ^ | Joel Osteen

A Glimpse of Heaven

Today's Scripture

“Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” (Matthew 6:10, NIV)

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

God longs to give you a glimpse of heaven while you are here on earth. He wants to show you His plan and bring it to pass in your life. Have you ever thought about how God’s will is accomplished in heaven? In heaven, God’s will is automatic. There are no opposing forces, no doubt, no enemy or anything that would come against His will. On earth, His will is done in our lives, first, when we receive Jesus as our Lord and Savior; and then, we must choose to come into agreement with His will on a daily basis through our thoughts, our words and our actions. On earth, we have to stand against the forces of doubt and darkness. We have to refuse those negative, self-defeating thoughts.

As you open your heart to the Word of God and invite His will to be done in your life, you are coming into agreement with God. And when you get in agreement with God, there is power! As you declare what God says about you, you will experience all He has for you and see a glimpse of heaven in your life here on earth!

A Prayer for Today

Father, I come to You today and invite Your will to be done in my life. Have Your way in my heart and let everything I do bring glory to You in Jesus name. Amen.
