Joel Osteen (August-09-2019) Daily Devotion: A Free Gift For All.
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE: "…God does not show favoritism but accepts from every nation the one who fears him and does what is right." Acts 10:34-35, NIV
TODAY'S WORD: Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom! And God’s freedom is free for everyone. It doesn’t matter what your nationality or heritage is, or who your family is. It doesn’t matter how much money you have or don’t have. God wants you free from everything that would hold you back in this life. He wants to pour out His abundant blessing on all who honor Him and choose His ways.
It says in Galatians that in Christ, there is no Jew or Greek or even male or female. That means God is not judging you based on physical conditions; He’s looking at your heart. He’s looking at the gifts He’s placed inside of you.
Don’t let the enemy lie to you and tell you that God is blessing everyone else but you. Look for the ways He is pouring out blessing in your life. Thank Him for His acceptance, love and freedom today. Focus on honoring Him and doing what is right. Receive His favor and blessing because it is a free gift for all!
PRAYER FOR TODAY: Father in heaven, thank You for loving and accepting me today. I choose to do what is right and honor You with my attitude, words and actions. Holy Spirit, show me if there is any area that isn’t pleasing to You and help me live as an example of Your goodness all the days of my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
