Joel Osteen Daily Inspiration 22nd April 2023 Message
I believe in holding on to our dreams, standing on the promises, but sometimes it takes more faith to accept what God is doing, to recognize that the ending is a part of His plan. The same God that opens doors also closes doors. The same place you saw abundance in one season may seem like a famine in another. You had a great friendship with that coworker, but now things have changed. They moved on. If you don’t understand that God has necessary endings, you’ll fight every closed door, try to hold on to things God is done with, force it to work out.
When Jesus said, “It is finished.” That was symbolic. It was showing us that when God puts an end to things, in the natural, it will look like it’s done. Jesus breathed His last breath. His lungs weren’t moving anymore, no more pulse. The soldiers even declared, “He died. He couldn’t save Himself.” All the circumstances said it was over.
But God wouldn’t have allowed the end if He didn’t have a greater beginning coming. Don’t go by what it looks like. God is doing things you can’t see. In the natural, it may look like the enemy got the best of you. The door closed, the person walked away, the business didn’t make it. The only reason the manna stopped is because there’s a Promised Land in your future. There’s something bigger, better, more rewarding than you can imagine.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You know everything about me, so there’s no reason to try to hide my failures, my mistakes, and my hurts from You. Thank You that I can come to You knowing that You are the God who restores and heals. I believe that You are about to do something awesome in my life. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
