Theme For Joel Osteen Devotional 5 January 2018 – Be Yourself
“Since we have gifts that differ according to the grace given to us, each of us is to exercise them accordingly.”
(Romans 12:6, NASB)
The key to living a happy, fulfilling, satisfied life, is really very simple. Just be the person God made you to be, and have the courage to do what God called you to do. He has a unique and individual plan for your life, and the way to becoming a champion for God is to discover that plan and follow it wherever it may lead. But because you are human, it’s easy for you to get distracted – many times, because you’re trying too hard to please other people. Of course, there are legitimate demands on your time that must be met. The good news is that these things don’t have to thwart God’s plans for you. Just make it your desire to follow and please Him, and you won’t be thrown off the path by life’s demands and distractions.
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Lord, please help me today to use the abilities and gifts You have given me to honor You. Thank You for not expecting me to try and be someone other than the person You made me to be. In Jesus’ name. Amen
