Joel Osteen Today 28 October 2023 Devotional Message
Today’s Joel Osteen Daily Devotional for Saturday 28th October 2023 written by Joel & Victoria Osteen. God bless you as you study!
Today’s Topic: This Is the Day
Today’s Scripture: Psalm 118:24, NLT
This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.
Today’s Word – Joel Osteen
David had all kinds of opposition coming against him, people slandering him, family problems, but in the middle of it all he wrote today’s Scripture. If he was reporting on his circumstances, he would have said, “The Lord made this day, but I have so many problems.” Instead, David was making a declaration of faith: “Despite the opposition, people lying about me, or my family not believing in me, I’m going to live this day happy.”
If you’re going to be happy, you have to be happy on purpose, because there will be betrayals, delays, and all kinds of things that can cause you to live sour. You have to say, “I’m not letting what’s not working out or other people or problems to steal my joy. I will rejoice. I will be glad. I will live this day happy.” Know that your will is more powerful than how you feel. You have to decide first, then happiness will come. You control your happiness. It’s not up to anyone else. You’re as happy as you want to be.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You have given me this day as a gift to live for You. Thank You that my happiness today is not dependent upon anyone else or upon my circumstances. I will rejoice, I will be glad, and I will make the most of this day. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
