Joel Osteen 5th July 2021 Daily Devotional Message
You may feel as though you were shortchanged in life—you didn’t have a good childhood, or you’re dealing with a health issue, or your boss hasn’t treated you fairly. The good news is that God saw the hurt and knows what you’re owed. He’s keeping the records. He may not be able to give you another childhood or bring back a loved one, but He can make the rest of your life so rewarding, so fulfilling that you won’t think about what didn’t work out.
The hand you’ve been dealt may not be fair, but it’s not a surprise to God. In the dark places of your life, you have to keep reminding yourself that God is a God of justice. He knows exactly what’s going on. He already has a way to settle your case. Every time you’re tempted to worry, just turn it around and thank Him that payback is on the way. Thank Him that you’re coming into a place of no loss.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You are a God of justice, and You keep the records. Thank You that the time comes when You say that it’s payback time, and You will settle my case. I believe that things are about to turn around and blessing is on the way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Hearing In Your Spirit
Many times, God will speak things that contradict what we see with our eyes. If you’ll listen with your spiritual ears, His promises will come to pass despite your circumstances.
