Joel Osteen’s Message And Declarations For Today
“We’re not supposed to go through life constantly struggling: not able to fulfill our dreams, not able to send our children to college, not able to be a blessing to someone else. Lack is not your destiny. You were created to live an abundant life, to be the head and not the tail”
The scripture says, “God will supply all of our needs according to His riches.” It doesn’t say, according to your talent, according to your education, if your boss likes you, if the economy is good, if you have the right friends. It’s not according to what you have; it’s according to what He has. The good news is that God owns it all. He makes streets out of gold. If He doesn’t have what you need, He can create it. He speaks, and worlds come into existence.”
You have to learn how to encourage yourself. You can’t count on people to cheer you on and keep you built up. Sometimes, people will let you down; they’ll try to keep you at the same level. They may not see what you can see. Paul said in Romans 3:3, “What if some don’t believe. Will their unbelief make the faith of God without effect?” Just because somebody doesn’t believe that you can accomplish your dreams doesn’t change anything.
The commanded blessing will override all the people that have tried to stop you. The commanded blessing will make up for what you didn’t get. It will cause people to go out of their way to be good to you. It will put you in the right place at the right time. People may have tried to push you down, but God is going to lift you up. They may have tried to keep you from your destiny, but they are powerless to stop the blessing God put on you.
Circumstances may be against you, but the Most High God is for you. He’s called Jehovah-Jireh, the Lord our provider.
