Be Good to People - Victoria Osteen, Sunday Sermon. When we love the people around us, we nourish our own souls. Look for opportunities to be good to others today. As you focus on loving others, God is going to do incredible things in your life!
Widen Your Lens of Perspective - Victoria Osteen. Sometimes we focus so much on an area of our life we want to change that we miss the new things God is doing around us. Don't let a difficult season keep you from recognizing God's work in your life. Shift your perspective to see the new things He has prepared for you!
Victoria Osteen - Sermon: Be Faithful With The Small Things. When the Israelites were going to possess the Promised Land, God said, “Little by little I will drive your enemies out before you, until you have increased enough to take possession of the land” (Exodus 23:30). God started small, slowly decreasing the enemies because He wanted His people to go big. He wanted them to grow their own capacity to be able to handle what He was going to give them in the future. He didn’t want the land to overtake them. He wanted them to overtake the land. God was increasing them incrementally throughout their journey. God wants to increase us, but oftentimes we overlook the small things because we want to go big.
Watch Victoria Osteen's 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.”
Victoria Osteen - 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: Keep The Right Perspective.
The Bible tells us to constantly “be made new in the attitude of your minds” (Ephesians 4:23). We choose the way we see life, whether we will be grateful or negative about what we think is good and not good.
Your attitude has a direct correlation with your success. Someone with a good attitude sees solutions and feels as though they can tackle anything. How you see your life makes all the difference in the world!
Victoria Osteen - Sermon: Build People Up with Your Words. In Matthew 7:12 Jesus said, "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you." In light of Jesus' words, we need to carefully choose the words we speak to others because the truth is that we are going to be a product of what we say. We are going to eat from the fruit of our lips (see Proverbs 18:21). You can create the life you want with the words you speak. If you want grace to come to you from others, you have to extend grace. If you extend grace, grace will be extended to you.
Victoria Osteen - Realign Your Focus to Stay on Course. Let’s be on guard every single day. The apostle Paul says, “Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things” (Colossians 3:2). That means to set your mind on the important things in life—the things that bring you closer to your destiny, that cause you to have a strong marriage, good relationships, and a great job. Set your mind to walk in integrity and lay aside every weight and sin that causes you to drift. Set your mind to honor God in all you do—big and small!
Victoria Osteen - Protect Your God-Sized Promises. You may be going through some difficult times right now, but hear this loud and clear. God says you are also blessed and highly favored. He has chosen you and put a seed of promise in you and given you an assignment that you need to protect. You need to get into an environment where it can grow, such as a good church where people know God and speak encouragement to your heart. Get His Word in you so that when you go out to birth what God put in you, you’ll withstand the challenges you’ll face. Protect what He’s given.
