Today's Word with Joel and Victoria Osteen / @joelosteen
What God Calls You
"And the angel of the LORD appeared to him and said to him, ‘The LORD is with you, O mighty man of valor.’" Judges 6:12, ESV
In scripture, God called Gideon a mighty man of fearless courage. Now Gideon looked around and said, "God couldn't be talking about me. I come from the poorest family. I'm the least one in my father's house." Gideon saw himself as weak, defeated and not able. But God saw him as strong, confident and more than a conqueror.
The question is, are we going to believe what God says about us, or are we going to believe what we feel, what we think, or what the circumstances look like? You may feel weak today, but God calls you strong. You may feel like a victim, but God calls you a victor. You may be afraid, but God calls you confident. You may be in debt, but God calls you prosperous. You may be sick, but God calls you well. You may be addicted, but God calls you free. You may feel inadequate, but God calls you well able.
Today, get into agreement with God. No matter what the circumstances look like, you’ve got to dig your heels in and say, "God, I agree with what You call me. I’m free, forgiven and healed in Jesus’ name!”
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
"Father God, thank You for loving me and calling me Your own. I choose to receive Your Word which is life, health and strength to me. Fill me with Your peace and wisdom. I set my thoughts on You in Jesus’ name. Amen."
