Today’s Word: Joel Osteen 28 July 2021 Devotional
In the Scripture, an angel appeared to a teenager named Mary and told her that she was going to be the mother of the Messiah, the Christ. She would have honor and be admired for generations to come. I’m sure Mary was excited. But I can hear Mary years later, saying, “God, You didn’t tell me I would have to watch my son die a painful death.”
When God gives you a promise, He’ll show you the end but not the middle. What you’re going through today may be difficult and doesn’t make sense. This is where your faith has to kick in. Are you going to give up and talk yourself out of it? Or, are you going to do as Mary did and say, “God, You didn’t tell me about these dark valleys. But I know You’re still on the throne, and it’s not a surprise to You. I’m not going to live in discouragement, give up on my dreams, or quit believing. I’m going to have faith in the middle.”
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your promise that You will work out Your plans for my life. Help me to stand firm in my faith in the times when nothing seems to make sense. You have never failed me in the past, and I know You’re not going to fail me in the future. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
