The theme for today’s Joel Osteen Ministries’ Daily devotional by Pastor Joel Osteen is ”Blessed”
When you see the word “blessed” in Scripture, the Amplified Bible describes it as “happy, fortunate, to be envied, prosperous,” which is the way you need to see yourself. The blessing doesn’t do you any good if you think you’re limited because you’ve been through too much or you never get any good breaks. Limited thinking will lead to a limited life. A blessed mind-set will lead to a blessed life. You may have obstacles that look too big, and you don’t see how you can accomplish your dream, but the blessing on your life is more powerful than any force that tries to stop you. God’s blessing is an empowerment where you can live joyfully, with a spring in your step, a song of praise in your heart, despite the circumstances. It’s a blessing that will cause you to go where you can’t go on your own, to overcome what seems too big, to accomplish dreams that look impossible. All through the day, just remember that the Most High God has placed His hand of blessing on you.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for the blessing You have put on my life because I trust in You. Thank You that no one can take that blessing from me and it is greater than any force that tries to stop me. I believe that Your hand of blessing on me is going to take me further than I’ve imagined. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
