Today’s Word On Joel Osteen Devotional 21st November 2020
All through the Scripture we’re told that we become like the people we’re around. You will catch what they have, so make sure they have what you want. The wrong people will feed you doubt, fear, gossip, and mediocrity. If they compromise your values and are negative and critical, that will rub off on you.
Your dreams may be lying dormant because the people around you are telling you what you can’t become. Life is too short to hang out with people who are pulling you down and causing you to compromise.
You have to take bold steps to protect your integrity and future. You may need to change who you’re spending time with and surround yourself with people who are full of faith, who inspire you, who challenge you, who call out the seeds of greatness, who cheer you on and cause you to grow. Then you’re going to step up to a new level and see those dreams come to pass.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for making it so plain that I need to be selective about whom I surround myself with. Help me to be bold to evaluate and change who I’m spending time with and make sure that my friends are people of faith who challenge and inspire 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.
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.
