Victoria Osteen - Sunday Sermon: Have a Peacemaker's Heart.
When I looked up the synonyms of “a peacemaker,” it states “a diplomat, an arbitrator, a mediator, a calmer, a soother, a go-between.” It reads like the characteristics of Jesus, doesn’t it? It’s the attitude that He walked in while He was on this earth. He made peace for us so that we can make peace for others. We can be reconcilers of peace. We have to walk with the heart of a peacemaker.

Victoria Osteen - Sunday Sermon: Widen Your Lens of Perspective.
This is what God spoke through the prophet Isaiah: “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland” (Isaiah 43:18-19).
God is asking us, “Do you recognize the new thing I’m doing in your life?” He is saying, “Don’t wait to have faith when the situation takes care of itself because I’m doing some new things right now. Look for it! Watch and see what I will do. It is a new thing!”
Watch Victoria Osteen - Sunday Sermon: Put God First In Your Life. You have to put in the big rocks of your life first if you’re going to be successful. And one of the big rocks that would benefit all of us is spending time with God. Our “God rock” should be the first rock. The Scripture says, “In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” (Proverbs 3:6). If you want God to direct your paths, if you want Him to crown your efforts with success, He says, “Put Me first.”
Watch Victoria Osteen - Sunday Sermon: God Sees You As Valuable and Significant. Remember, you “are God’s masterpiece” (Ephesians 2:10). You are a masterpiece in His eyes! He’s already qualified you, and He’s left nothing out of you. Keep His voice clear and free from the debris of life. Spend your life well and make it count. Our great God has put so many amazing things in you, and He “has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.” How you live your life really matters!
Watch Victoria Osteen - Sermon: Creating a Winning Atmosphere for Your Family.
In this message, Victoria will show how to have a winning attitude with our family members. The Scripture says, “Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds” (Hebrews 10:24).
If we’re going to create the life that we want to live with our family, we have to keep the tone of a winner. We’re going to celebrate in the good times, and we’re going to keep that winning spirit in the difficult times. I believe that if we will maintain that consistent tone, we’re going to have a great life not only for ourselves but for our families!
Victoria Osteen - Sunday Sermon: The Power of Encouragement.
God wants us to show up strong with encouragement for other people. The Scripture says, “But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called ‘Today,’ so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness” (Hebrews 3:13). To encourage means “to impart courage, to make fearless, to make brave.” God is saying that if we stand together like the defensive line on a football team, we will stand victoriously against the enemy’s deceit and discouragement.
Encourage your family, encourage your children, encourage your coworkers, encourage your boss, encourage your pastor. Ask God to give you someone today to encourage in a meaningful and profound way. Let’s push back the darkness with encouragement every day!
Victoria Osteen - Sunday Sermon: Created To Do Good Works. In this message, Victoria will teach on what are good works through Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2 says, "we are God's workmanship created in Christ Jesus to do good works." We are God's handiwork. He is making us. He is molding us. God has created us to do good works. God is working through us in our good works. What is a good work? When we're patient. When we choose joy. When we choose peace. When we're serving others. Within those good works God is working something in us.
Victoria Osteen - Sunday Sermon: Stand Firm In Your "Yes" To God.
In this message, Victoria will encourage you to say yes to God. Second Corinthians 1:20 says, “For as many as are the promises of God, in Christ they are [all answered] ‘Yes.’ So through Him we say our ‘Amen’ to the glory of God.” What is it that you need to say yes to today? Is it, “Yes, God, I’m going to forgive those people who hurt me”? Is it, “Yes, I’m going to believe that You can bring good out of this difficult time and show me Your favor”? Maybe it’s, “Yes, God, I’m going to reach out to those people whom You’re asking me to reach out to even though I don’t feel like I have time”? What does your yes look like?
Victoria Osteen - Sermon: Break Through The Barriers of the Past.
In this message, Victoria will explain when you’re in emotional pain, it’s easy to shrink back in fear and allow an emotional limp to become a stronghold in your mind—a wrong way of thinking. The last thing you want to do is to step out in boldness or put yourself in a position where you can get hurt again.
But you can’t allow a painful experience to trick you into thinking you’re going to have a painful life. If you find yourself shrinking back because you’re afraid you’ll be hurt again, you have to understand that God can heal what hurts! He is the mender of broken hearts.
