Joel Osteen 15th September 2020 Devotional Today Tuesday
TODAY’S TOPIC: THE MERCIES OF GOD
I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. – Romans 12:1, ESV
Today’s Word: Joel Osteen 15th September 2020 Devotional
When the apostle Paul talks about “the mercies of God,” he doesn’t use the singular but the plural. Every one of us has experienced some of these mercies. Perhaps some of the things you’ve done—the crowds you used to run with, the drugs, the alcohol, the reckless driving, the freak accidents—should have taken you out.
But God showed you some of His mercies—not once, but again and again. In fact, the reason you’re still here is because God has a destiny for you to fulfill. He has an assignment for you to accomplish.
You might as well recognize you’re a marked man, a marked woman. The Creator of the universe has His hand on your life. The sooner you surrender your will to His, the better off you’re going to be. You’re not giving up anything. You’re gaining purpose, your destiny, a life that He’s designed, a life more rewarding than you ever imagined.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for all of the times You’ve shown me such great mercy, protecting me from accidents and delivering me from mistakes I’ve made. I surrender my will to You, and I believe that You are leading me forward into the life that You designed for me. 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.
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
