As a believer in Jesus and a child of His, God is on your side today! If you haven’t thought about it yet today, remember, you were created for greatness. You have the seed of Almighty God inside of you. There is no obstacle that can stop you. There is no disadvantage that can hold you back!

When God is on your side, He sets the right people in your path. In fact, He’s already released favor into your future. He’s planning for you to come into new seasons of increase. He has a plan for victory in every area of your life!

Let that sink down into your heart today. Begin to expect His favor. Expect Him to work in your life. Focus on the fact that God has equipped you. He has anointed you. Your best days are still out in front of you! If God is for you, no one can rise against you! Meditate on this promise so you can walk in the favor and victory God has in store for you!

Refuse Bitterness (Written By: Joel Osteen)

Today’s Scripture:

“Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice.”
Ephesians 4:31, NIV

Today’s Word:

Bitterness is an extremely destructive force. It can seep into the depths of your heart if you choose not to forgive someone. Scripture tells us that if we choose not to forgive others, it will even hinder our prayers. Thank God that He has empowered us to forgive and release bitterness! It all begins with a choice. You may have been through unfair situations, but it’s not over until God says it’s over. God always has the final say. He is a God of justice. He sees every wrong that’s ever been done to you and every unfair situation. If you will stay in faith and choose to forgive, God will make your wrongs right. He’ll bring justice into your life. Your attitude should be, “It may have been unfair. They may have done me wrong, but I refuse to get bitter. I know my time is coming.” Choose forgiveness, honor God and walk in complete freedom in every area of your life!

Prayer for Today:

“Father, today I refuse bitterness. I refuse to allow the past to keep me stuck. Right now I forgive those who have hurt me. I pray blessing on them, that they would come to know Your truth. Father, thank You for setting my heart free today in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

Make Health a Priority (Written By: Joel Osteen)

Today’s Scripture:

“Dear friend, I am praying that all is well with you and that your body is as healthy as I know your soul is.”
3 John 1:2, TLB

Today’s Word:

We all set priorities in our lives, whether consciously or unconsciously. We all organize our time based on what’s important to us. Scripture encourages us to make our health a priority. When we are at our best physically, every other area of our life seems more manageable.

God created you to be active and healthy so you can be ready for what He has in store for you. What can you do today to invest in your health? Can you change one thing in your diet? Can you add 10 minutes of exercise to your schedule each day? Being physically healthy is not just a good idea — it’s a good spiritual idea, so make health a priority!

Prayer for Today:

“Father, today I dedicate my body to Your service and glory. Help me to honor You and make good decisions for my health in Jesus’ name. Amen.”

He is the Healer (Written By: Joel Osteen)

Today’s Scripture:

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.”
Psalm 147:3, NIV

Today’s Word:

It doesn’t matter what is “broken” in your life today, God’s nature is to bring you complete healing. Do you need healing in your body? Your mind? Heart? Finances? Relationships? God is your healer. Notice what the Psalmist says in this verse: He binds up their wounds. In the natural, if you have a broken arm, it doesn’t just heal overnight. The doctor makes a cast to hold it in place and protect it. He binds up your wound. In the spiritual realm, God does the same thing. He wraps Himself around your brokenness and protects the wounded area until it is strong enough to function properly again. The Bible also says that He is a restorer. That means that when He does a work of healing in our lives, He makes us better than we were before.

If you’re going through the healing process today, know this: it may take longer than you planned, but God is binding up your wound. He is protecting you and healing you. He will bring you out better and stronger than you were before. He will take you to a place of complete healing so that you can live the life of victory He has in store for you.

Prayer for Today:

“Father, thank You for being my healer. Thank You for restoring every area of my life. I give You my brokenness and everything that I am today. Use me for Your glory in Jesus’ name. Amen”

Overflow with Thankfulness (Written By: Joel Osteen)

Today’s Scripture:

“So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”
Colossians 2:6-7, NIV

Today’s Word:

Are you overflowing with thankfulness? Is your thankfulness spilling out on to the people around you? Don’t just think your thanks, show it! Don’t let the kindness of others go unnoticed. Sometimes it’s easy to take for granted the people who are closest to us, but those are the people we should thank the most. Your family, your friends, the ones who love and support you are the ones who should feel your thankfulness the most.

And notice this verse says to live in Christ and be built up in Him. When you build yourself up by studying the Word and praying in the Spirit, then the second part of the verse will just come naturally — you will be strengthened in your faith, and your heart will be filled with thankfulness.

Take a step of faith today and begin to show your thankfulness to those around you. Let it overflow! Sow seeds of gratitude and blessing so you can reap an abundant harvest of blessing in return!

Prayer for Today:

“Father, thank You for strengthening me with Your faith and love today. Help me be a blessing to those around me and give me creative ways to let my life overflow with thankfulness. I bless You today in Jesus’ name. Amen”

He Restores Your Soul (Written By: Joel Osteen)

Today’s Scripture:

“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul…”
Psalm 23:1-3, NASB

Today’s Word:

God wants to restore your soul. Your soul is your mind, your will and your emotions. You are a three-part being: you have a spirit—that’s the part of you that lives for eternity, you have a soul, and you have your body while you’re here on earth. Your soul is where the enemy tries to wound you and hold you back. Your soul is where you may have brokenness from the past, or hurts and disappointments. But when God restores your soul, He brings His healing power to those broken places. He makes you whole again. When God restores you, He makes you better off than you were before!

Notice the picture painted in this verse: He leads us beside quiet waters. He makes us lie down in green pastures. This is a picture of rest. When we are resting in Him, He is able to do a work in our lives. He is able to bring that restoration. Don’t let the busyness of life keep you going so fast that you don’t stop and rest. Take time to be still before the Lord and meditate on His Word. Let Him restore and heal your soul so you can live the life of victory God has prepared for you!

Prayer for Today:

“Father, thank You for another day to praise You. Thank You for Your plan to lead me into rest so that You can restore my soul. I surrender my brokenness to You and open my heart to receive Your healing in every area of my life today in Jesus’ name. Amen”

Great Peace (Written By: Joel Osteen)

Today’s Scripture:

“Great peace have those who love your law; nothing can make them stumble.”
Psalm 119:165, ESV

Today’s Word:

God not only wants to give you peace, He wants to give you great peace! When you love the law of the Lord, nothing can make you stumble, and nothing can steal your peace!

Great peace gives you joy when it doesn’t make sense for you to be happy. It’s peace that passes understanding. Great peace keeps you stable and strong no matter what you face.

Today, make the decision to focus your attention on God’s Word. Psalm 119:105 says that His Word is a lamp to our feet and light to our path. His Word directs us and protects us. Choose His Word today and embrace the great peace God has in store for you!

Prayer for Today:

“Father, thank You for Your Word that gives me great peace. I choose to focus on Your Word today so that You can protect and guide me. Thank You for working in my life in Jesus’ name! Amen.”
