Today’s Word: Joel Osteen Devotional for 31st October 2020
As a young man, David spent years running from King Saul, hiding in caves, sleeping in the desert. I’m sure he prayed, “God, deliver me from Saul. This is not right.” But it was as though the heavens were silent. God didn’t change it. It was a night season–a time of testing, a time of proving.
There are times in all our lives when we’re praying and believing, but we don’t see anything changing. We can feel alone, forgotten. It’s a night season. We can’t see what God is doing, but God is working behind the scenes. He does His greatest work in the dark.
Your story doesn’t end in the night. Keep moving forward in faith, keep believing. The bad breaks, the disappointments, the losses, and the sicknesses are simply additional steps on the way to your destiny. It’s just a matter of time before the morning breaks forth.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You are the God of the night seasons. I believe that no matter what comes my way, it’s not a surprise to You, and You still have me in the palms of Your hands. I believe that though it may be night now, morning is coming. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

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.
