The theme for today’s daily devotional by Pastor Joel Osteen of Lakewood Church is ”Take Down Giants” and it is a message highly recommended for our spiritual growth and upliftment today.
When the Promised Land was divided up and given to the families of the Israelites, Caleb could have asked for an easy section. But instead he asked for the mountain where three giants still lived, the place where the Israelites had refused to go, which resulted in Caleb wandering with them in the wilderness for forty years. He said, “Give me this mountain that God promised me. This is my destiny.”
Where are some giants that you can bring down? Where are some people you can lift up? There’s nothing worse than to come to the end of life and realize you never took your promised land. It is not in the average or in the routine or the comfortable, but it is in the cause. It is doing something out of the ordinary, getting involved in something that isn’t about you, making your neighborhood better, blessing that coworker, bringing down a giant. Make up your mind to not live comfort-driven but cause-driven. Then you’ll defeat your greatest enemies and reach your promised land.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You are the Most High God and that no giant is too great for You. Thank You that You have causes for me to fight, for people to lift up and support, and to help drive out giants. Help me to be like Caleb and be bold to take my promised land. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
