Joel Osteen (January-25-2022) Daily Devotion: Relax and Let God Work.
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE: Cease striving and know that I am God... Psalm 46:10, NASB
TODAY'S WORD: We all have to make numerous decisions throughout the day. When you face a difficult decision, did you know you can ask God to lead you in the right direction? You'll be amazed at the insight you get from relying on God instead of striving to find the answers on your own. If you’re constantly trying to figure things out and make things happen instead of waiting for God’s timing, you’ll wear yourself out. Instead, why don’t you come back to a place of rest, knowing God is in control. His ways are higher than ours. If you’ll trust Him to do things His way, you’ll see His best plan for your life unfold. When you feel worried or uptight, that’s the time to say, “God, give me Your wisdom to make good decisions. I refuse to worry. I’m staying in peace, knowing that You are in control.”
PRAYER FOR TODAY: God, thank You for remaining in control even when I'm worried or stressed. Give me Your supernatural wisdom to make decisions that honor You and are for my good. In Jesus' Name. Amen.
