Theme For Joel Osteen Devotional April 24 2021 – When You’re Surrounded
Psalm 3:6, NLT
I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side.
You would think that being surrounded by ten thousand enemies would have David feeling worried, afraid, and upset. But he went on to say, Victory comes from You, O Lord. He was saying, I could be overwhelmed by my enemies, but I’m not falling apart because I know that God is surrounding what’s surrounding me. David saw his enemies, but through his spiritual eyes he also saw the Most High God fighting his battles. As with David, you may feel surrounded by enemies depression, sickness, lack, obstacles. You don’t have the people connections or the finances. You could easily accept it and think, It’s not meant to be. Here is the key: What you see with your physical eyes is not the only thing that’s surrounding you. If you open your eyes of faith, you’ll realize the troubles and the opposition are surrounded by our God. You’re not just surrounded by the negative. That’s one level, but the all-powerful God supersedes that. You’re surrounded by favor, surrounded by healing, and surrounded by angels.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that no matter what trouble I face, I can stay in peace knowing that You are surrounding every trouble and opposing situation that’s surrounding me. I declare that I am surrounded by You, and You will bring me through to victory. In Jesus Name, Amen.
