Theme For Joel Osteen Devotional February 22 2021 – Don’t Go by Your Circumstances
Genesis 17:17, NIV
Abraham fell facedown; he laughed and said to himself, Will a son be born to a man a hundred years old? Will Sarah bear a child at the age of ninety?
Sarah was over ninety years old when she gave birth to Isaac. This is way too old in the natural, but we serve a supernatural God. He can make a way where you don’t see a way. Don’t talk yourself out of your dreams. Don’t give up on what God promised you. You can still give birth. You can still meet the right person, still start your own business, still go to college, and still break the addiction. That seed is alive in you. Here’s the key: You can’t judge what’s in you by what’s around you. All of Sarah’s circumstances said, You’ll be barren your whole life. You’re too old. No woman your age has babies. It’s impossible. If she had believed that lie and let that seed take root, the miracle birth would never have happened. You can draw in the negative with your doubt or you can draw in God’s blessings with your faith. Don’t let what you see around you cause you to give up on your dreams.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that I am not limited by my circumstances. Thank You that what surrounds me does not determine the seeds of greatness You have placed within me. I believe that the supernatural plans You have for me are going to take me where I could never go on my own. In Jesus Name, Amen.
