Nothing Is Too Small

A message from Joel Osteen

NOTHING IS TOO SMALL

Today’s Scripture

“And even the very hairs of your head are numbered” (Matthew 10:30)

Today’s Word from Joel and Victoria

We hear all the time that nothing is too big for God. But have you ever thought that a problem was too small for God? Are there things in your life that you haven’t prayed about simply because you thought it didn’t matter to God? Every detail of your life is important to God. He knows the very number of hairs you have on your head! That’s pretty amazing to think about. If He keeps track of every hair that falls from your head, surely He cares about the things that you care about in your life. God wants to be involved in every area of your life—not just the big things, but the small things too. Don’t wait to pray until you have a major crisis. Talk to Him every day about everything. God wants to be involved in your mornings. He wants to be involved throughout your workday. He wants to be involved when you go to the grocery store. He wants to be involved in every area of your life. Open your heart and talk to Him about everything because nothing is too small for Him!

A Prayer for Today

God, thank you for loving me. Thank you for choosing me as Your child and for caring about every detail in my life. I open my heart to You and ask You to be involved in every area of my life today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Favor Mentality

Have you ever thought to yourself that everyone around you always seems to win contests but you never do? Or that other people get preferential treatment while you don’t? Perhaps you’ve been banging your head against the wall wondering what you have to do to be as “lucky” or “fortunate”, or how about the word “blessed” as others around you. It all goes back to our thoughts, our hearts, and our words. The bible says we can have what we ask for (Matt 7:7, James 4:2), and Jesus told His disciples that he had given them same power as He (Matt 28:18-20). The bible also tells us that life and death are in the tongue (Proverbs 18:21), and that we will never fail (2 Peter 1:5-11). The activating agent for all of God’s blessings is faith. We must perceive it, receive it and activate it!

A message from Joel Osteen

FAVOR MENTALITY

Today’s Scripture

“Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life…” (Psalm 23:6).

Today’s Word from Joel and Victoria

Do you know what goodness is? It’s God’s favor. In the above verse, David was saying, “Favor follows me everywhere I go.” David knew he had an advantage. He knew God would assist him. He knew he could expect preferential treatment. David had this favor mentality. All through the Psalms, he constantly talks about God’s favor. You see, something is going to follow you throughout life. If you go around thinking, “Nothing good ever happens to me. I never get any breaks.” Then you’re going to have defeat, mediocrity, and lack following you around. But if you’ll switch over into this favor mentality and say, “God’s favor gives me an advantage. God’s favor is bringing success. God’s favor is making my crooked places straight…” then you’ll have blessings chasing you down! You’ll walk in promotion! You’ll experience increase! You will be destined for success! Choose to have a favor mentality today so you can enjoy the goodness and mercy God has stored up for you!

A Prayer for Today

Heavenly Father, thank you for your grace and mercy. Thank you for showing me your goodness. Thank you for showing me your favor. I accept your promises for me today and let go of every negative thought. Thank you for your peace today. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
