Joel Osteen 2nd November 2020 Daily Devotional Monday Message written by Joel & Victoria Osteen.
TODAY’S TOPIC: SING A NEW SONG
Today’s Scripture: Isaiah 42:9–10, ESV
“Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I declare…Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise from the end of the earth.”
Today’s Word: Joel Osteen 2nd November 2020 Today Daily Devotional – Sing A New Song
In today’s Scripture, God is saying that the things you’ve been struggling with are coming to an end—the disappointment, the hurt, the bad habits. He’s about to put a stop to it and do a new thing. But if you’re going to see the negative come to an end and God do a new thing, you have to sing a new song. You can’t go around with that same old song of who hurt me and how wrong it was.
No more singing about what you can’t do and how it’s never going to work out. No, get rid of that song of defeat and self-pity and start singing a song of victory. “I know God’s turning it to my advantage. He’s turning my mourning into dancing. He’s armed me with strength for this battle. I will lose this weight. I will break this addiction.”
Is there something you need to get over today? Make this decision: no more excuses.
A Prayer for Today: November 2nd, 2020 Monday
“Father, thank You that You are worthy of my worship and new songs of praise. Thank You that I can put the old sad songs of defeat behind me and start singing songs of victory. I declare that this is a new day, and my dreams and vision are being renewed. 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.
November 2020 – JOEL: EMPTY OUT THE NEGATIVE
God is getting you prepared to go where you have never gone, to accomplish dreams that you didn’t think were possible, and to live and enjoy the life He intended for you.
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.
