Joel Osteen (June-29-2022) Daily Devotional: A Work in Progress
Today’s Scripture: Philippians 1:6, NLT - And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.
Today’s Word: Everyone has something they're dealing with. You are a work in progress. God has His own timetable. While He's changing you, you need to feel good about who you are, knowing that God will get you to where you're supposed to be. Most people say, "I would feel good about myself if I were more patient, less jealous, and hadn't blown that relationship." There will always be some reason why you won't feel good about who you are. The accuser will make sure to remind you of something you're not doing right, some way that you failed.
If you're going to live in victory, you have to put your foot down and say, "That's it. I'm done being against myself. I'm done focusing on my weaknesses. I know I'm a child of the Most High God. I am redeemed, restored, and forgiven. God is taking me from glory to glory, so I'm going to look away from all that distracts. I'm going to enjoy the glory I'm in right now."
Prayer for Today: Father, thank You for the good work You're doing in my life, and I know that You will keep developing and bringing it to full completion. Thank You that I am a work in progress as one of Your masterpiece creations. I declare that I am happy with who I am and who You're making me into. In Jesus' Name, Amen
