Joel Osteen (September-23-2021) Today's Word: Who’s Your Architect?
Today's Scripture: And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19, NKJV
Today's Word: When an architect designs a skyscraper, he calculates all the loads, how much each floor will weigh, and how much wind stress it will face so it can withstand all the pressures it will bear. The good news is that your architect is the Most High God. He not only designed solar systems and mountain ranges, He designed you. When He laid out the plan for your life, He calculated everything you would face—all the pressure, the weight, the elements. He took into account every hurt, injustice, loss, and mistake. He designed your beams thick enough and your foundation deep enough. He put in you the strength, the fortitude, and the tenacity that no matter what comes against you, it will not be too much to bear. You’ve been designed to withstand the opposition, overcome the injustice, and endure till the dream comes to pass.
When you’re tempted to think, “I can’t handle this,” tell yourself, “I am well able. My God shall supply all my needs in Christ Jesus.”
A Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You that You are my architect, and You are working through a specific plan for my life. Thank You that You have designed me to withstand whatever comes against me. I believe that You are supplying all my needs and will finish what You started. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
