Widen Your Lens of Perspective
This is what God spoke through the prophet Isaiah: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland” (Isaiah 43:18-19). God is asking us, “Do you recognize the new thing I’m doing in your life?” He is saying, “Don’t wait to have faith when the situation takes care of itself because I’m doing some new things right now. Look for it! Watch and see what I will do. It is a new thing!”
Scared Into Greatness
Being in uncomfortable situations or circumstances is often a prerequisite for stepping into greatness. In these seasons of growth, we learn how to respond to challenges with faith instead of fear.
What would this world be like if we simply loved people instead of judging them? In this eye-opening message, Joel will inspire you to love like Jesus loved. Jesus said in John 13:35, “By this will all men know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” ---- Visit https://joelosteen.com to receive daily updates and encouragement from Joel Osteen. ---- Have you followed Joel Osteen on Instagram? https://instagram.com/joelosteen.
Put God First in Your Life
You have to put in the big rocks of your life first if you’re going to be successful. And one of the big rocks that would benefit all of us is spending time with God. Our “God rock” should be the first rock. The Scripture says, “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:6). If you want God to direct your paths, if you want Him to crown your efforts with success, He says, “Put Me first.”
