Theme For Joel Osteen Devotional January 17 2021 – Taste and See
Psalm 34:8, NIV
Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in him.
When Moses led the Israelites toward the Promised Land, they never went in because they complained and had wrong mind-sets. That generation wandered in the wilderness for forty years, only hearing and dreaming about the land flowing with milk and honey, hoping it would become theirs. But they died without ever seeing it come to pass. Joshua led the next generation that had a different mind-set that took them into the Promised Land. They didn’t just hear about the land of abundance, they conquered and lived in it. They tasted the great clusters of grapes their parents had only seen. Sometimes thoughts will tell you, “What you’re dreaming about will always only be a dream, just a wish and a hope.” The good news is that you are a part of the Joshua generation. You’re not going to just dream the dream; you’re going to live your dream. You’re going to taste the grapes, taste the abundance, taste the healing, and taste the freedom.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for the invitation to taste and see just how good You are. Thank You that the dream You’ve put in my heart will come to pass and not remain just a dream. I believe I’m a part of the Joshua generation, and You’re taking me into the Promised Land. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
