Theme For Joel Osteen Devotional January 25 2021 – Taken Higher
Psalm 61:2, NIV
From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
Many people get frustrated and soured on life because of their unanswered whys. Not everything along your life’s way is going to make sense. You may never understand why something happened the way it did, but God knows what He’s doing. He wouldn’t allow it if it weren’t going to somehow work for your good. This is where faith comes in. Nothing that’s happened to you can keep you from your destiny. The only thing that can stop you is you. If you get negative and bitter and lose your passion, that’s going to keep you from God’s best. You may have had unfair things happen to you, but I’ve learned that the depth of our pain is an indication of the height of our future. The taller the building, the deeper the foundation. When you go through difficulties and unfair situations, God is getting you prepared to be taken higher than you ever imagined.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You know best when it comes to the things I want and the twists of life that I don’t understand. Thank You that You’ll take me through my unanswered whys and lead me higher than I’ve ever imagined. I believe that Your plans for me are good. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
