Joel Osteen sermon Easier Than You Think: Today Joel Osteen talks to us about the topic “easier than you think”. When we face challenges and have things that come against us, it’s easy to start dreading it, thinking, “This is going to be so hard, how am I going to make it through this treatment? How can I deal with this child that’s off course? How can I accomplish this dream, I don’t have the resources, the connections?”
Yes, there are seasons where we have to endure, do the right thing when it’s hard, but there are also times that God will step in and make it easier than it looks. The scripture says, “he goes before us and makes the crooked places straight.” that means what should be overwhelming, is no problem at all.
What looks so complicated, you don’t see a solution, suddenly things fall into place. You don’t have the connections, you don’t know the right people, but out of nowhere someone steps in and shows you favor. You thought it was going to be a long, drawn-out process, but it turned out easier than it looked.
You may be in situations now that you’re tempted to dread. You’ve already decided it’s going to be hard. You’re gearing up to endure it.
God is saying, “it’s going to be easier than you think, there’s going to be a supernatural grace, a supernatural favor, supernatural strength. He’s working behind the scenes, making rough places smooth. He’s changing people’s minds, causing them to agree with you.
Now you have to get in agreement with God. You can’t go around dreading it, making plans for it to be hard, you’re drawing in what you’re thinking about. If you’re telling yourself, you can’t pass the course, “this problem is too big, I’ll never make it through this sickness. “You’re defeating yourself.
Turn it around, say, “yes this looks difficult, but God I know you’re still on the throne, you said your yoke is easy and your burden is light, you said you’re making my rough places smooth. Father, thank you that this will be easier than it looks.” God has the right people lined up for you, he knows how to change people’s minds, and he knows how to cause them to be for you. You don’t have to do everything in your own strength, your own talent, your own ability; the Most High God is going before you, He’s fighting your battles, he’s arranging the good breaks, the healing, the favor, the promotion.
You may go through seasons of struggle, where you don’t see anything happening, no growth, no improvements, thoughts will tell you, “this will always be difficult, you’re always going to struggle, It looks like it’s going to be long, hard, drawn out, but pastor Joel Osteen says, if you’ll stay in faith, you’re going to come into these moments of favor where suddenly things fall into place, suddenly that burden is lifted, suddenly people change their mind, suddenly your business takes off, suddenly your health turns around, it’s not a struggle any more. God is going to make things happen that you couldn’t make happen
