The theme for today’s daily devotional by Pastor Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church is ”Buried” and it is a message highly recommended for our spiritual growth and upliftment today.
Think about a tiny seed that you plant in the ground. The dirt that’s on top of it is thousands of times heavier, more powerful. The little seed could think, “I was doing fine, then someone buried me.” But what that seed doesn’t know is God already took into account that it would be buried, overwhelmed, surrounded by pressure and forces that are much greater. So God designed into that seed a supernatural life, supernatural strength, supernatural ability. After it’s buried, that seed will germinate and have the strength to push the opposing dirt out of the way, strength to move something many times stronger.
God is showing us that it’s not the size of what you’re up against. What matters is what the Creator put in you. Don’t be intimidated by how big the opposition is, by how bad the medical report looks, by the power of the people who are against you. Like that seed, you have the life of Almighty God. You have the favor of God. You have can-do power. You are stronger than you think.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that no matter what pressures and troubles I face, I can stay in peace knowing that Your life in me is greater than any force that comes against me. I believe and declare that I am stronger than I think, and I will push through and overcome. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
