Today Joel Osteen 5th December 2023 Devotional Message
Today’s Joel Osteen Daily Devotional for Tuesday 5 December 2023 written by Joel & Victoria Osteen. God bless you as you study!
Today’s Topic: First Place
Today’s Scripture: In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.
Proverbs 3:6, TLB
Today’s Word – Joel Osteen
in 1 Kings 17, the prophet Elijah asked a starving widow to do something that seemed selfish. He said, “Before you make your final meal from the last of your grain and oil, make me a loaf of bread.” But with it came God’s promise of overflowing provision if she would keep Him first place and do as Elijah asked.
God is saying, “Keep Me first place in your life, let Me direct your steps and decisions, and I’ll crown your efforts with success.” When you wake up in the morning, don’t meet with anyone until you first meet with God. Take time to thank Him for the day. Thank Him for who He is. Thank Him that He’s the giver of all good things, that He’s your protector, your provider, your healer, and your way maker. All through the day, under your breath, you can talk to God and say, “Lord, thank You for watching over my children. Lord, help me to be my best at work today. Lord, direct me in everything I do and say.”
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You invited me into a relationship with You. I want, in everything I do, to put You first and have You direct my life. Thank You for speaking to me through Your Word. I believe that You will crown my efforts with success. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
