Joel Osteen Daily Devotionals August 27 2022 : Bless Yourself

    Joel Osteen Daily Devotionals August 27 2022 : Bless Yourself :

    Today’s Scripture

    Isaiah 65:16, AMPC
    …he who invokes a blessing on himself in the land shall do so by saying, May the God of truth and fidelity [the Amen] bless me…

    Today’s Word

    We hear a lot about blessing others–helping friends and neighbors, encouraging loved ones. That’s all good, but today’s Scripture says it’s also important to bless yourself. That can sound odd and self-centered, but the way you bless yourself is to say what God says about you. “I am strong. I am talented. I am forgiven. I am healthy. I am valuable.” Those are not just positive affirmations; you just invoked a blessing on yourself. When you speak it out, you give life to what you’re saying, and blessings come looking for you.

    You can’t wait until you feel that way. You have to declare you’re healthy before the health is going to show up. You have to say “I am confident” before you’re going to feel confident. If you say it day after day, those words get down in your spirit and change how you see yourself. You’re going to become what you’re saying. You are who you are in part today because of what you’ve been speaking over your life.

    Prayer for Today

    Father, thank You for the promises You have spoken that I can use to invoke blessings upon myself. Thank You that I can speak words of faith that agree with what You say about me and give them the right to come to pass. I will use the words I speak over my life to bless myself. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
