My friend Juanita Bryan forwarded this message from Joel Osteen to me this morning. I’m so grateful that she listened to God when He told her to send it to me. I was praying when the text came in. When I say that her timing was perfect, I’m not joking. It was exactly what I needed to read at that very moment. It’s exactly what I need to read and recite on a daily basis, as I grow through my struggles.
So rather than keep it to myself or share with a few people, I decided to pay it forward and share this much-needed message with all of you. Hopefully it brings comfort and sparks a forward progress that you (or someone else) needs right now. Enjoy and God bless you!
Your sister in Christ,
Go Further, Dream Bigger
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
(Philippians 4:13, NKJV)
No matter what’s happening in your life today, remember, you are not limited by your resources, your family or your background. Almighty God has equipped and empowered you. He has given you creativity, ideas, inventions, skills and talents. Don’t you dare settle for a mediocre life! Today, call forth the seeds of greatness within you!
Today, declare that your best days are ahead. Declare that you are going further than anyone in your family ever did, that you are going to dream bigger and live higher.
Before anyone put a curse on you, God Almighty put a blessing on you. Walk and live in that blessing by following His commands and stay fully committed to Him in everything you do!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, thank You for blessing me and calling me according to Your purposes. I receive Your Word which is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. I will hide Your truth in my heart that I might not sin against You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
– Joel Osteen
