Joel Osteen Devotional Today 19th January 2023
Today’s Joel Osteen Daily Devotional for Thursday 19 January 2023 written by Joel & Victoria Osteen. God bless you as you study!
TODAY’S TOPIC: WHAT ARE YOU PASSING DOWN?
TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: 1 Kings 11:11–12, VOICE
“You have been unfaithful to Me and have broken My covenant… But in honor of your father, David, who was always faithful to me, I will not remove the kingdom from you.”
[THE WORD] Joel Osteen 19 January 2023
Twenty-three years after David died, his son King Solomon had married foreign wives and started worshipping their idols. He knew better, but he let his heart turn away from the Lord. God would have taken this kingdom from Solomon, but He said that for the sake of David, He wouldn’t do it. David started a blessing, and even after he died, his children walked in the blessing. They received mercy because of how he lived.
The decisions we make every day don’t just affect our lives, they affect generations to come. When you make decisions that honor God, when you’re generous and faithful, it is being credited to your children’s account, to your grandchildren, to future generations. Just as there is a generational curse of negatives that can be passed down, there is a generational blessing. God is keeping an account of every good thing you do. That’s not being overlooked. It’s accruing mercy, favor, and blessing in your family’s account. You can be the one to set your family on a new course of blessing.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You have given me the power to start a generational blessing. Thank You that I can make decisions that honor You and accrue blessings to be passed down to my family. I declare that I am going to start today. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
