Today’s Scripture: Jonah 2:9, NIV
“But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the LORD.’”
Today’s Joel Osteen Devotional Topic: Celebrate the Good
In today’s Scripture, the prophet Jonah tried to run away from God and ended up getting swallowed by a great fish. It was dark and smelly, no way out in the natural. He had plenty to complain about, but instead he was thanking God that he was still alive. He wasn’t delivered, but at least he was spared. As he thanked God for the partial victory, God went to work and had that fish spit him up on dry ground.
It’s easy to complain about what’s not working out. “God, it stinks where I work. The people aren’t treating me right. Get me out of here.” Complaining will only get you stuck. If you want God to turn it around, do as Jonah did and find some good things to thank Him for. Thank Him for the partial. Thank Him for where He’s brought you, thank Him for fighting your battles, thank Him for His favor on your life. If you keep celebrating partial victories, God is going to finish what He started.
A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You for Your faithfulness and love and mercy in my life. Thank You for the partial victories that You have given me, and I know that You are working to bring them to completion. I believe that as I celebrate the good, I will see every promise fulfilled. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
