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!"
Most of us believe Jesus has incredible power, but Romans 8:11 says that the Spirit that raised Christ from the dead lives in you. Did you catch that? The greatest force in the universe lives in you!
In this powerful message, Joel will remind you of this life-changing truth and teach you how to walk in resurrection power each day. It's the power to overcome obstacles, outlast opposition, and the power to accomplish your dreams. It's time to let go of fear and intimidation and live life in the fullness of God's power!
Wherever you are in life right now, there is something you can be grateful for. Yet, many people have decided that they are not going to be happy until a certain goal is met or until they "have a certain thing or someone."
That's why Joel wants to remind you of the godly principle of living life in contentment and being grateful for where you are— right now. While it's good to have goals, we have to make sure that we are not depending on others or outside situations to fulfill us in order to be happy. Discover how God wants you to be content in whatever situation you find yourself, and how He will use every season for His glory and for our good.
Are you ready to live a more fulfilling, faith-filled, prosperous life? Then let Joel inspire and teach you the importance of having a positive mindset and learn how to stay in control of your mind.
Scripture teaches in Colossians 3:2 to set your mind on the higher things and keep it set. The higher things are the positive things. You see, you control the doorway to your mind. Yet many times, people live on autopilot, letting their thoughts just roam free. But if you want to become everything God has created you to be, you have to choose the right thoughts.
Remember, when you believe, your faith is released for God to do all things!
Are you comfortable enough to play the role God has given you? Many people live their life comparing themselves to others, feeling "less than," inadequate or unhappy with their gifts and talents.
But Joel wants to remind you of the importance of appreciating and accepting the gifts God has already given and entrusted to you. John 3:27 says, "A man must be content to receive the gift which is given him."
As you use your energy to be the best that you can be and enhance what God has given you instead of comparing or competing, you will enjoy your life more, and there will be more satisfaction and fulfillment. If you'll use what you do have, God will breathe on it. His anointing will cause you to accomplish more than you could ever imagine!
Anytime you show honor, you are sowing a seed for blessing and favor in your own life.
In this message, let Joel remind you of the importance of living a life of honor.
Romans 12:10 tells us to "take delight in honoring each other."
As you make the choice to live in integrity with your words and actions toward all people—your loved ones, your co-workers, your friends—and decide to do all you can to lift people up, you are sowing a seed for your future.
Remember, Galatians 6:7 says that "a man's harvest in life will depend entirely on what he sows." If you want to live a blessed, peaceful life, pour out honor and love to those around you!
