Pastor Joel Osteen shared this sermon and message titled “Make The Switch” which we are bringing to you to listen to and meditate on. The senior pastor of Lakewood Church and the husband of Victoria Osteen herein teaches that you don’t have to live with sickness, addiction or oppression. He said God wants to heal you as he asks us to make the switch from wondering if it is His will for us to be healthy and believe that He wants to bless us.
Teaching us not to go back to what we have left, Pastor Joel Osteen wrote on Instagram:
“The reason the Scripture says to “leave it” is because you’re going to be tempted to pick it back up.
You may drop it at first, but the next morning when you think about what they said, you’ll want to pick up the hurt and the bitterness. I know people who have been picking up the same offense for forty-seven years. It’s not a bag anymore; it’s a part of who they are. You have to leave it. It may not have been fair, but God saw what happened. He’s a God of justice. He’ll make your wrongs right. When you leave it, that doesn’t mean you’re weak, or that you’re giving in, or that you don’t care about what they did to you. No, you’re saying, “God, I trust You to be my vindicator. I trust that You will open new doors and get me to where I’m supposed to be.”
Imagine that at ten o’clock on a Monday morning a coworker is rude to you. Drop it, leave it, let it go. When you see your coworker again at noon, you’ll be tempted to pick it back up. Just say, “No, thanks. I’m leaving that offense where I dropped it. I’m not carrying around any baggage.” Later that same day, you have a disappointment, finding out that you didn’t get a contract. You could be sour and let it ruin your week.
Instead, you drop it, leave it, let it go. That’s your challenge for today.”
