JOEL OSTEEN SERMON YOUR VICTORY BEGINS IN THE DARK : We are pleased to bring to you today this Joel Osteen’s new sermon March 2022 titled ”your victory begins in the dark”.
Pastor Joel Osteen in this sermon said, The book of genesis starts off telling us how God created everything, it says the evening and the morning were the first day, you would think it would be the reverse, the morning and the evening were the first day but God starts the day in the dark at12 a.m. nothing looks any different if you didn’t have a watch, you wouldn’t know you’ve entered a new day, it’s still dark outside, looks the same as it did at nine o’clock, at 10 o’clock, at 11 o’clock, there’s no sign that something has changed, but when the clock strikes midnight in that one second when nothing looks any different, it goes from p.m. to a.m.
It’s still dark but it’s a new day, it would make more sense if God started the day in the light when the sun came up, at six or seven in the morning when the dawn breaks, the light comes, then it’s obvious we would know it’s a new day. We can see it, things have changed, we hear the birds start chirping, the sun comes over the horizon, we have all this evidence that we’ve entered a new day, but on purpose God chose to start the day in the dark.
It’s symbolic of how he does things in our lives, he gives us a promise, he says we’ve come into a new day, he’s restoring health back into us, we’re going to lend and not borrow, our child is going to get back on course, we believe we pray we stand in faith but nothing is changing, nothing looks any different, nothing feels any different, still dark outside, joy, my back is still hurting, my business hasn’t grown, my health hasn’t improved, this is what faith is all about, you can’t see it but you have to know you passed midnight, you’ve gone from pm to am.
Yes it’s still dark outside, yes nothing has changed, but the sun is on its way up, healing is on the horizon, promotion, freedom, the right people, it’s just a matter of time, before you see the light come breaking forth and don’t be discouraged by the dark, the dark doesn’t mean nothing has changed, the dark is not a sign that God is not working, that he didn’t hear your prayer.
Thoughts will tell you would have seen something by now, you would feel a little better, one of those companies would have called you back, that addiction wouldn’t be this strong, you have to walk by faith and not by sight, if you walk by sight you’ll talk yourself out of it because 11:30 at night doesn’t look any different than midnight, everything you can see, feel, touch, smell looks just the same, there’s no evidence that it’s a new day but the psalmist said the moment you pray the tide of the battle turns, you can’t see it but when you prayed, you left the pm and you came into a.m.
Pastor Joel Osteen wants us to know it’s a new day, you may not be able to see any sign of it, that’s okay victory begins in the dark and we all go through these times where we don’t think it’s going to work out but we must know that God is already working on your problem.
