Joel Osteen Daily Devotional October 21 2022
THEME: All along the Way
SCRIPTURE: -1 Kings 8:56, NIV “Not one word has failed of all the good promises he gave through his servant Moses.”
When God brought the Israelites out of slavery, God showed them their destination, the Promised Land. But in the middle God didn’t say, “I gave you the promise, and now you’re on your own. Good luck.” All along the way, God supernaturally provided them with blessings parting the Red Sea, provisions in the desert, protection from enemy nations. He was showing them and us, “I’m not just the God of the start and the finish. I’m the God of the middle who will bring you through the adversity.”
When you’re in the middle, God has given you the promise, and you know the destination. But you’re en route. You’re in the process of raising your child, believing for your healing, or running that business. Along the way, you’ll face situations that look impossible the odds are against you, the opposition is stronger, the report says you’re not going to get well. Be encouraged, knowing that the God of the middle is right there with you. Keep moving forward, knowing that God is in control.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that Your favor is holding back the walls of water and keeping my enemies from defeating me. Thank You that not one word of Your promises will fail. I believe that what You have purposed for me will come to pass and nothing can stop it. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
