Say What? (Joel Osteen)

“Since we have the   same spirit of faith, according to what is written, ‘I believed and therefore   I spoke,’ we also believe and therefore speak”
(2 Corinthians 4:13,   NKJV)
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
Scripture says, “The spirit   of faith is in our words.” My question today is, “What’s coming out of your   mouth?” Are you talking about how big your problems are, or are you talking   about how big your God is?

As believers, our attitude   should always be an attitude of praise — “Father, business may be slow, but I   want to thank You that You’re supplying all of my needs.” “My circumstance   may seem impossible, but thank You, God, that all things are possible with   You!” We should always find a reason to give thanks!

This is what Jonah did. After   complaining for eight verses, he had a change of heart in verse nine. He   said, “God, in spite of my difficulties, I’m going to offer unto You the   sacrifice of praise with a voice of thanksgiving.” While sitting in the belly   of the whale, instead of complaining, he began to worship. The next verse   says that the whale spit him out onto dry ground, and he went on to fulfill   his destiny.

If you feel like you’re in   the belly of a whale, if you feel trapped, if things seem dark, remember,   praise always precedes the victory! Open your mouth and declare His praises!   Say what the Word says and watch the breakthrough come to pass!

Father God, I humbly   come to You in the precious name of Jesus Christ. I commit my words and   thoughts to You. I choose to say what the Word says. I choose to speak the   truth and trust that You are working for my good in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria   Osteen
