Today’s Joel Osteen Daily Devotional for Wednesday 11 January 2023 written by Joel & Victoria Osteen. God bless you as you study!
TODAY’S TOPIC: HOPE ON IN FAITH
Today’s Scripture: Romans 4:18, NIV
Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations.
[THE WORD] Joel Osteen 11 January 2023
God gave Abraham a promise of a baby son when he was seventy-five years old, but he was one hundred before he saw the fulfilment. Abraham had all kinds of opportunities to quit believing, yet he hoped on in faith. In the face of the impossible circumstances, he stayed focused on how big God is rather than how big the problem was.
You may feel like there’s no reason to have hope in a promise of God. In the natural, it’s not possible, but we serve a supernatural God. When you keep hoping on in faith, you are paving the way for God to do extraordinary things. Some promises take time. While you’re waiting, it’s easy to lose your passion and start believing the lies that the problem is too big. You have to keep your hope stirred up. You’re not moved by what’s not happening. You know what God promised is on the way. You don’t consider your circumstances; you consider your God. Hope on in faith.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that because You are supernatural, I can hope on in faith even when I can find no other reason for hope. Thank You that what You promised me is going to come to pass. I declare that I will not be moved by what’s not happening. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
