Theme For Joel Osteen Devotional January 15 2021 – Ask Big
Joshua 10:12, NIV
On the day the LORD gave the Amorites over to Israel, Joshua said to the LORD in the presence of Israel: “Sun, stand still over Gibeon.”
One day when Joshua and the Israelite army were fighting a battle late in the day, he knew he wasn’t going to be able to finish the enemy off unless he had more daylight. He could have thought, “Too bad. They’ll escape in the night.” No, he knew he was heavy with God’s favor, so he prayed a bold prayer: “Sun, stand still.” The Scripture says the sun stopped and didn’t go down until Joshua completely defeated the enemy.
Are you praying bold prayers, expecting God to show out in your life? Would you dare do as Joshua did and ask God to do something out of the ordinary to bring those dreams to pass that seem too far out? It may not look logical for an average person, but God is for you. Ask in spite of what the enemy keeps whispering in your ears. If you’re going to reach your highest potential, you have to learn this principle of asking big.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that when the odds are against me, You are for me. Thank You that nothing and no one is more powerful than You, and I can dare to pray bold prayers. I believe that You are going to show out in my life as You did with Joshua. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
