The theme For today’s word by Joel Osteen is ”Helping others” Read Joel Osteen daily devotional for today November 12 2023.
In the Scripture, Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers and working for a man named Potiphar. Rather than focus on his problem and be bitter, Joseph was so faithful that he was put in charge of Potiphar’s household. Later, after he was falsely accused and put in prison, rather than focus on his problem, he was so excellent that he was put in charge of all the prisoners. Then when Pharaoh needed his dream interpreted, Joseph stepped in to help, with no thought of getting something in return, yet he was made the prime minister of Egypt as a result.
Notice that while you’re working on someone else’s problem, God is working on your problem. You may think you could never get well, never break the addiction, never accomplish your dream. But if you keep being good to people, keep helping them solve their problem, keep helping their dream come to pass, what you can’t see is that God is lining up the healing, the breakthrough, the promotion. You can’t sow a seed without reaping a harvest.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You destined me to help other people solve their problems. Help me to keep my eyes open for the people and opportunities You bring me to serve. I believe that as I take my hands off my problems, You will put Your hands on them and help solve them. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
