Joel Osteen (October-30-2018) Daily Devotion: Store it Up.
TODAY'S SCRIPTURE: "Therefore know that the LORD your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments." (Deuteronomy 7:9, NKJV)
TODAY'S WORD: Jesus went before us and paved the way for victory. Because He lives, we can live in victory in this life and in eternity. Not only can we live in victory, we can help others live in victory, too. We can help the people around us, and we can help the people who are coming after us. We can store up mercy, peace and blessings for future generations.
The life we live should make it easier for the people after us. By living a life of excellence, we are leaving a mark for future generations. And really, that's what matters most in eternity. It's good to leave an inheritance, but the most valuable thing you can leave on this earth is a legacy of faith.
PRAYER FOR TODAY: Father, today I choose to focus on eternal things. I choose to store up a legacy of faith, mercy, excellence and hope for future generations. Help me, by Your Spirit, to live a life that honors You in Jesus' name. Amen.
