I dedicate today’s post (written by Joel and Victoria Osteen) to those of you feeling overwhelmed by life’s circumstances, what others are doing or not doing, and the darkness that surrounds you. Pray for the flood of God’s light, then believe wholeheartedly that it’s coming—then wait and watch for His magnificent glory!
Keep your head up and your heart fixed on our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Light Will Come
“When darkness overtakes the godly, light will come bursting in.” Psalm 112:4, NIV
TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Osteen
Anytime you are going through difficult, dark times, know that God already has a plan to bring you through to victory. When you call on His name, when you surrender your circumstances to Him, that’s when His light will come forth through the darkness. Notice, it’s not going to trickle in, it’s not going to just barely get there. No, like a flood, like the breaking forth of waters, it’s going to come bursting in!
I believe it means that suddenly, you’re going to get well. Suddenly, you will meet the right person. Suddenly, you’re able to pay your house off. Our attitude should be, “My child may be off course, making poor decisions, but I’m expecting a flood of God’s mercy to bring him back.” Or, “My house has been on the market for a year and still hasn’t sold, but I’m expecting a flood of favor to cause it to stand out and sell.”
In the midst of that difficulty, don’t get discouraged. You’re in a prime position to see a flood of God’s goodness. Keep praising Him. Keep thanking Him and stay in faith because His light will break through the darkness!
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You for being the light of the world. Today I lift my heart to You trusting that Your light will burst forth through the darkness. Thank You for Your good plan to renew and restore me in Jesus’ name. Amen.
