Today’s Word: Joel Osteen Devotional 18 February 2022
Jesus chose Peter to be one of His disciples even though he knew he was hot tempered, impatient, and would fail many times. He didn’t choose him because he was perfect; He chose him because He had the blueprint for Peter’s life. The messes didn’t disqualify Peter; the messes simply meant he was still under construction. He knew that Peter would become one of the most respected, influential leaders.
We all have some messy areas we need to improve in. The point is to let God make you and mold you. Stay pliable. We should be better this year than we were last year. We should be making progress. Don’t let the mess become normal.
The hot temper, the addiction, the negative attitude–that’s not who you are. Keep growing, keep resisting that temptation, keep saying no to those carnal desires. Every time you do the right thing, it makes it a little easier the next time. There’s nothing wrong with being under construction; there is something wrong with not making any progress.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that my life is Your workmanship and that I am under construction according to Your blueprint. Thank You that You’re working in my life, and You will bring me to completion. I am looking beyond the messy areas to see the masterpiece in the making. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
