Joel Osteen Daily Devotionals July 5 2022 :
Zechariah 4:6, NKJV
So he answered and said to me: “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ says the Lord of hosts.”
In Numbers 21, the Israelites were desperate for water in the barren wilderness when they came upon an old dry well. Here the people sang, “Spring up, O well!” even though they couldn’t see, taste, feel, or smell water. There was no reason, logically speaking, to believe water would flow out of the well. That’s why the Scripture tells us to walk by faith and not by sight. If they had gone by what they saw rather than had faith in the might and power of God, they would have missed this abundance.
In difficult times, you’re either going to be singing about the problem or singing about how big your God is. He is not limited by the laws of nature. He’s limited by what we believe. You have to make declarations of faith when you’re in the drought and break forth into song. Start singing to the promise, “Spring up healing, spring up freedom, spring up abundance, spring up victory,” and God will show out in your life in ways you’ve never seen.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You are here with me, and that You are with me in all the circumstances of my life. Teach me what it means to sing to the promises and make declarations of faith. I give You thanks for how great You are and declare that the answers are springing up even now. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
