Joel Osteen Daily Devotional 10 July 2024 Message:

Today’s Word
Many of the things we struggle with have been passed down in our family line. We inherit our parents’ DNA that determines our eye color and height, and we also inherit genetic predispositions to attitudes, habits, and behaviors. Research shows how depression, anger, low self-esteem, and addictions can be passed down. The Scripture calls this “an iniquity,” which means a hereditary weakness.

Whole families may battle with alcoholism, dysfunctions, or strife and division that keep getting passed down. It’s good to study your family history and see what your strengths and weaknesses are. Where does your family excel, and where do you see a pattern of mediocrity, compromise, and failure?

Today’s Scripture says that you don’t have to let an iniquity continue on through you. It’s been in your family line, but you can put an end to the negative cycle. You can be the exception, the difference maker, the one who says, “I’m going to deal with this addiction, this anger, this compromise, this depression. I’m not going to let my history keep me from my destiny.”

Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You that I don’t have to be defined by my family’s past, by dysfunctions or iniquities that were passed down to me. Thank You that I can take a stand and remove anything that is holding me back. I declare that I will be the difference maker who rises up to put it to an end. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
