Joel Osteen Daily Devotional 24th October 2020 Today Message
TODAY’S TOPIC: SIMPLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION
Today’s Scripture: Hebrews 3:4, NIV
For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
Today’s Word: Joel Osteen 24th October Daily Devotional Message
House building sites are often big messes of mud, discarded lumber, and trash piled high. What’s interesting is that we don’t say, “Stop building! It’s never going to be a beautiful house.” We know the mess is a part of the building process.
In the same way, you have to see the things that are messy in your life, things you struggle with, things that seem to be delays, as simply under construction. You may not like the mud–he disappointment, the setback, the betrayal–but it’s part of the process. You can’t become all you were created to be without messy times.
Your architect and builder, the Most High God, isn’t concerned about the mess because He designed a specific plan for your life. He’s already taken into account all the delays, the things you don’t understand, and even the mistakes you’ve made. God is saying, “You’re not a finished product. What I started, I’m going to bring to completion.”
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You are my architect and builder, and You are working through a specific plan for my life. Thank You that I’m under construction. I’m growing, I’m coming up higher, and I know that You’re going to finish what You started. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Energize Your Life!
God has created you to be a victor, not a victim. Jump-start your day by celebrating the very best that God has for you! These daily inspirations will help you grow in your relationship with the Lord and equip you to be everything God intends you to be

About Joel Osteen
Raised in Houston, Texas, with a loving family of seven and world-renowned parents in full-time ministry, Joel Osteen never imagined that he would follow so closely in his father’s footsteps. As a young man, his training and interests were behind the scenes in television production, though he was close to his father in ministry.
“There’s no greater feeling than being able to help people rise higher and overcome something and feel better about themselves. I think that we’re all made to help others, to lift people UP.” – JOEL OSTEEN
His father always encouraged him to preach, but Joel would politely decline time and time again until one day in October 1999 when his father was admitted to the hospital with kidney complications. Joel finally agreed to preach the next Sunday, and his father passed the following week. Joel’s first sermon was the last his father ever heard. Joel and his wife, Victoria, were suddenly thrust into full-time leadership of Lakewood Church.
