JOEL OSTEEN Daily Devotional 9 January 2024 Message

Today’s Joel Osteen Daily Devotional for Tuesday 9th January 2024 written by Joel & Victoria Osteen. God bless you as you study!

Today’s Topic:Time to Stop Running

Today’s Scripture: When the sailors heard this, they were frightened, because Jonah had already told them he was running from the LORD. – Jonah 1:10, CEV

Today’s Word – Joel Osteen

It’s easy to avoid things in life that we should be dealing with. Instead of forgiving people who have done us wrong and moving on, we push the hurt down. Or maybe we need to apologize to someone, but that’s uncomfortable, so we keep putting it off. Perhaps a new door opens, and we know it’s a God-given opportunity, but we’re afraid and feel unqualified. Instead of confronting our fear or what’s uncomfortable, we run from it, even from God’s call.

As long as you’re running away, you’re going to miss the greatness God put in you. You can’t conquer what you don’t confront. Too often we’re comforting what we should be confronting. We’re making lists of excuses. But you can’t run from everything that’s uncomfortable. You can’t ignore issues, sweep them under the rug, and think they’ll go away. When you get honest with yourself, when you confront what you know you need to deal with, it may be uncomfortable, but God gives you the grace, the strength, and the power to do what you couldn’t do on your own.

A Prayer for Today

“Father, thank You for always calling me higher and calling me to lay aside the list of excuses that keep me from being my best. Help me to confront the areas I need to deal with and to step out in faith and see change. I believe that with Your help I can overcome and be victorious. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
