Joel Osteen (November-29-2021) Today's Word: An Abundant Mentality
Today's Scripture - My cup overflows with blessings. Psalm 23:5, NLT
Today's Word: Some religious people will try to convince you that spiritual people should be poor and not have much of anything. They seem to prefer that you be constantly struggling, in debt, not able to pay your bills. That is not God’s best. Jesus didn’t come and give His life so we could barely get by and live off others’ leftovers. He came that we might live an abundant life (John 10:10). “Abundance” means to have plenty—plenty of joy, plenty of peace, plenty of good health, plenty of resources. Money shouldn’t be your focus, but the reality is that it takes money to fulfill dreams.
When David says his cup overflowed with blessings, he means you have so much that you can’t contain it all. Can I tell you that we serve a God who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think? He wants you to start having an abundant mentality. Enlarge your vision. Take the limits off yourself and off God.
A Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You that You are a more-than-enough God, and You want my cup to overflow with blessings. Help me to enlarge my vision of what You can do and start living with an abundant mentality. I declare that I am taking the limits off myself and You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
