Be Encouraged!

What does the pastor always say? "God may not be there when you want Him, but he's always on time." Word!

I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with the holidays and all the other things going on in my life. In additional to all that, school is supposed to start next month and I still don't have all my financial aid taken care of. Sheesh! The pressure is almost starting to feel like too much. So, guess what happened? Yep, you guessed it right. My BlackBerry went off and I got Joel Osteen's Daily Word.

Right on time! Be encouraged people! God will give you ALL the desires of your heart! I don't know how much time I'm going to have to post today, but I had to leave you with this...


Today's Scripture

"Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands” (II Timothy 1:6, NKJ).

Today's Word from Joel and Victoria

Do you ever feel like you’ve “lost your fire or enthusiasm?” We all have times when we feel overwhelmed by the pressures of life, but that’s when we need to stir up what God has placed on the inside of us. Remember, there are no disadvantages with our God. You have everything you need to succeed. No weapon formed against you is ever going to prosper; you just have to stir up the gift inside. How do you stir it up? By speaking God’s truth and meditating on His word.

Start right now by simply declaring today, “I am going to see God’s favor in a greater way. New doors are going to begin to open for me. Supernatural opportunities are coming my way. God is setting up divine connections for me. I’m always at the right place at the right time. I am going to overcome every obstacle and defeat every enemy. I’m going to see every dream, every desire that God has placed in my heart come to pass in Jesus’ name!”

A Prayer for Today

Father in heaven, thank You for the dreams, desires, and giftings You’ve placed on the inside of me. I choose to stir up the gifts inside and declare what You say about me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
