Theme For Joel Osteen Devotional April 23 2021 – Recalculating Your Route
Psalm 37:23 24, TLB
The steps of good men are directed by the Lord. He delights in each step they take. If they fall, it isn’t fatal, for the Lord holds them with his hand.
Even though God is directing our steps, there are times when we make mistakes and go the wrong way. But God doesn’t say, That’s it. I’m done with you. He holds us in His hands and helps us get back on the right course. It’s like a GPS system in your car. It tells you precisely where to go, but if you miss a turn, it doesn’t say, You loser! I’m done helping you. It says, Recalculating route. The GPS system was designed for people who make mistakes. It just keeps recalculating your route no matter how many mistakes you make. How much more can the Creator of the universe recalculate your route when you make mistakes. God isn’t mad at you. He’s saying, Recalculating route to your destiny. The mistakes didn’t stop My plan or cancel your purpose. Why don’t you quit beating yourself up over your failures and get back on the path? God has already calculated a new route. You can still fulfill God’s plan for your life.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You hold me in Your hands, and You delight to direct my steps. Thank You that You are always there to recalculate my route when I make mistakes. Show me Your ways and give me the strength and grace to stay on the right course. In Jesus Name, Amen.
