This is a great message from Joel Osteen. Special thanks to my friend Juanita for sharing it with me. Pay it forward by sharing it with someone. Thank you.
“And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”
2 Corinthians 9:8, NIV
We serve a God of abundance! Our God is more than enough! What is it that you have need of today? No matter what is on your “plate” of life, God wants to pour out His grace on you.
One of the meanings of grace is God’s good will, loving-kindness and favor. His grace keeps us, strengthens us, and causes us to increase. In fact, He’s already extending that grace to you right now; all you have to do is open your heart and humbly receive it by faith.
Humility is an important key to receiving God’s grace. If we are prideful and seeking our own ways, it blocks God from working in our lives. But when we are humble and seeking His ways, He will empower us by His grace.
Notice in this verse that when He pours out His grace on you, you will have all that you need at all times…that’s living in abundance! And when you are living in abundance, you are equipped to pour out that goodness and blessing on those around you. He wants to overwhelm you with His goodness so you can walk in the fullness of His blessing!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
“Father, today I humbly come before You. I surrender my heart, my will, mind and emotions to You. I ask that You pour out Your grace on me today and equip me for every good work in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
