You might have planned on having an average year but God has already lined up an extraordinary year. You might have planned on just getting by but God is planning on abundance. He's planning on overflow.
Often times we look at situations that are happening in the natural. We might look at the economy, or our pocket book and are tempted to look at this year with a limited perspective, not really expecting much. But we have to realize God is a supernatural God. Just because we don't see a way doesn't mean God doesn't have a way. You may not see how things will work out, but all you need to respond with is, "Lord, I believe." God is directing your steps and will put the right people in your path and put you at the right place at the right time.
You may be in debt, but God says, "You're coming out. You're coming into overflow." The economy may be down but God says, "You're going to see supernatural increase, supernatural promotion" Get it in your spirit that it's going to be a supernatural year.
Decide to increase your expectancy and get into agreement with God. You're going to have some, "Who would have ever thought this could happen to me" blessings, explosive blessings that you will blast you into a whole new level. It's going to be a year where you see dreams come to pass, a year where you get stronger and healthier. It's going to be a year where you look back and say, "Wow! God outdid Himself this year!"
There is no dysfunction, injustice or disappointment that can keep you from your destiny!
Many people today go around with a "damaged goods" label, feeling guilty and condemned by what they've been through. But the truth is, we've all had difficulties.
You can't live very long without making a mistake, being hurt by someone, going through a breakup, being broken by divorce, an unhealthy childhood or an addiction. The key is to move forward and let it go.
In this message, Joel will show you how to do just that and get out of the "damaged goods" section. Find out how to make the most of your life, regardless of how you were raised, how many bad breaks you've had, or how insignificant you may feel. It's time to move forward, let it go and walk in greatness once again!
We all face difficult seasons in life. How you respond in the difficult times will determine whether or not you make it into the fullness of your destiny.
Let Joel teach you the tools to stay in faith during seasons of loss, disappointment and unfair situations. By staying in faith and speaking out in faith over those difficult times, you will stay in a position of power and peace. Discover how men and women in the Bible faced trials just like you, and their faith in God brought them to their promise land. As you have the attitude of "all is well," you are showing God that you trust Him. That's what allows Him to give you beauty for ashes and take what was meant for harm and use it to your advantage.
Have you ever faced a setback or disappointment and wondered where God was? In this message, Joel will show you how God is always with us. Even when we face setbacks and disappointments, He always has a plan and purpose that will propel us into our divine destiny.
Proverbs 20:24 says, "Since the Lord is directing our steps, don't try to figure out everything that happens along the way." By letting go of trying to figure it all out and replacing that with trust, you will live a more peaceful life knowing that God is strategically ordering your steps. He promises to work all things together for your good! God has you in the palm of His hand—now it's time to trust!
A lot of times, we have faith for the future. We believe that one day we'll get a good break, one day we'll feel better, one day we'll see the problem turn around. If we're not careful, we're always putting our faith off, believing that in the future something good is going to happen. But true faith is always in the present.
In this exciting message, Joel will show you why the Bible teaches us to have hope for today and not for tomorrow. You'll learn how to look for God's favor, expand your vision, break down "one day" mentalities and start seeing more of God's favor in your life now. Remember, God wants to be good to you, but He's waiting for you to start expecting His favor and begin looking for His goodness. Today is your day to live with expectancy—where you can't wait to see what God is going to do in your life.
How you pray will determine what kind of life you live.
In this eye-opening message, Joel Osteen will teach you the power of praying bold, God-sized prayers. James 4:2 says, "You have not because you ask not." If you pray small, ordinary prayers, then you'll live a small, ordinary life. But when you have a boldness to ask God for big things, you will see the greatness of God's power and reach your highest potential!
