Joel Osteen (August-24-2022) Daily Devotional: Special Strength

Today's Scripture: That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:10, NLT

Today's Word: we all have times in life when we get weary and don’t feel like we can go on. We’ve prayed, and we’ve believed, but nothing has changed. Now the weight of what we’re facing has left us exhausted. The good news is that God doesn’t expect you to be strong all the time. He doesn’t fault you for feeling weak and say, “What’s wrong with you? Where’s your faith?”

Today’s Scripture makes it clear that when you feel overwhelmed and weak, Christ comes in with power and gives you special strength. Strength that you didn’t get on your own. Strength to move forward when you should be stuck, strength to overcome the addiction, strength to outlast the opposition. It’s the hand of God lifting you, empowering you, reenergizing you, causing you to run and not be weary, to walk and not faint. There’s going to be a strength that’s not natural, but supernatural. You’re going to have a new passion to stand strong, to try again, to step up to a new level.

Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You that I can take pleasure in the weaknesses that I sometimes feel, knowing that You come with power to give me special strength. Thank You for the reminders to always be asking for Your help. I believe that You are supplying me with all I need. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

    I needed to Hear this today... 2 sons a grand child and a G-Grandchild's mother in addiction... A daughter with cancer Currently Thankfully in remission, but being ravaged by treatments Pharmaceutically treacherous Treatments that have almost killed her.
    An adult son living with me Accused of grand theft auto... in denial of a crack addiction... Definitely feeling at the end of my rope it feels like there's just no end in sight to dealing with his addictions addictions and denial. Last night when I prayed I apologized to God for having negative thoughts and Feeling worried and weak... worn out. I prayed asking for strength and energy to know how to handle this and help my son and forgiveness for not just turning it over to God. 8 members of my family currently with covid. On a positive note there are 20 other members that are healthy and well very stable.... I attempt to focus on the positive... It is Sometimes difficult to ignore the amount of overwhelming chaos... Thank you for this message... I set my alarm every day at 3:56 to remind me to read Proverbs 3:5-6. IPause... Pray... Reset Lord knows I do not understand all this addiction I've been drunk once July 4th 1967... I know I'm not the judge Thankful that I do not have the addictions... the closest thing I come to Is dark chocolate... A-line of dark chocolate M&M or Rasinets is the closest way I can relate to these problems that I gratefully do not have. I try to maintain my twisted sense of humor to survive. Thank you again for the message it was really Helpful I don't feel quite as bad about myself feeling Weak. The grand theft auto thing has put me on the edge... I feel like I'm Is a character in a bad movie. I never thought that crack cocaine ialcohol heroine addictions would be a part of my life. Your messages are so uplifting I am very grateful... Hopefully someday I will see you preach in person. I forgot to add that I am recovering from an auto accident. I have been involved in 5 accidents that I did not cause... a passenger in two sustaining many injuries broken neck... ribs...coccyx... foot... hand wrist... fingets..fingers... thumb... torn rotator cuff... brain injury... most recently a concussion
