Make Preparations. (Written By: Joel Osteen)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE:
“…prepare the way for the Lord…”
Isaiah 40:3, NIV

TODAY’S WORD:
Everyone goes through seasons of waiting. A lot of times, people just sit back and wait for God to do something. But did you ever think that God might be waiting on you to do your part? Part of making preparations means talking like it’s going to happen and acting like it’s going to happen. Some people might say, “Well, what if I do this and it doesn’t happen?” But, what if you do, and it does happen? And even if things don’t turn out the way you had hoped, you’re still better off living your life filled with expectancy than going around down and discouraged.

David said, “God, my times are in Your hands.” He was saying, “God, I don’t know when it’s going to happen, but I know You know what’s best for me.” So I’m going to go out today expecting good things. And even if it doesn’t happen, I’m not going to go to bed all disappointed. I’m going to go to bed knowing that I’m one day closer to seeing my dreams and desires come to pass!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, I dedicate this day to You. Show me how to prepare for Your blessing in my life. Help me guard my words and thoughts as I put my trust in You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
