Well, if you have read any of my posts recently, you’ll know that today’s message from Joel Osteen really spoke to what I’m going through right now. I especially took notice of his use of this scripture because one of the comments on a post spoke about so many walking around today with “sad eyes and crooked crosses”. I truly feel that right now, I am in a crooked place with things off center but know the power our words hold and the power of God’s Word and His promises, I have been taking it to God and declaring healing in my body, mind and spirit.
He Prepares Your Path
“I will go before you and make the crooked places straight…” (Isaiah 45:2 NKJV)
Today’s Word from Joel and Victoria
Do you ever feel like every time you try to move forward in something, you hit a roadblock? Something happens that throws you off course. Be encouraged today because right now in your life, God is going before you. He’s preparing a way. He’s making your crooked places straight. He’s making your rough places smooth. You may be going through a difficult time right now, but it’s not the end. It’s only the beginning. God has equipped you for this journey. You may feel like you’re in a dry season, but don’t look at your circumstances. Look at the promise of God today! If you’ll keep speaking words of faith, God promises that He’ll anoint your head with oil and your cup will run over. That means you’ll be refreshed and anointed to do what He’s called you to do. God is preparing your path and equipping you for the journey. What do you need today to keep moving forward? Start by checking your attitude. Don’t go around complaining and focused on the negative side of things. Put on an attitude of praise and thanksgiving. Thank Him for making your crooked places straight! As you do, you’ll move forward in joy and gladness in the blessed future He has prepared for you!
