Peace With Your Scars
You can’t live very long without being injured and going through hurts and pains. Sometimes the wound heals up and you don’t have any sign that it ever happened. But there are certain injuries that are so severe, a cut so deep that when they heal up, the pain goes away, but they leave a scar.Maybe you have been scarred by a divorce, by what somebody said, by a mistake you made, or by a loss. Joel wants to show you how you don’t have to try to hide your scars or be embarrassed by what you’ve been through. Yo...

The Power of Remembering
In the Old Testament, God commanded the children of Israel to take time out of their busy schedule, several times of year, to remember the miracles; how he parted the Red Sea, how he brought water out of the rock, how manna came down from heaven. He wanted them to pause and remember the wonders he had done.So often we forget when we should remember. Sometimes, we remember what we should forget. Let's remember the good to strengthen our life. The Psalmist said, "remember what the Lord has done. I remember hi...

Don't Fight It

Keep Your Heart Free From Offense
Proverbs 19:11 says, "good sense makes one slow to anger and it is to one’s glory to overlook an offense." It does us no good to go around offended.There’s always going to be reasons to take an offense. The word offense comes from the Greek word which means bait. Sometimes that’s what happens to use with offense. It lures use into a trap. We get upset, frustrated, and bitter. Listen, don’t take bait. You can’t take the bait of offense and live in victory, joy, and peace. Shake off the any offense. Give it t...


By This Time Next Year
We all have situations that look permanent, like they’ll never turn around. It’s easy to get discouraged and accept that it’s not going to work out. But what you can’t see is that God is working behind the scenes in your life. It’s time to get ready for God to show out in your life.We serve a supernatural God. You may not see anything changing, but stay in faith. One touch of His favor can make everything fall into place. You’ll be encouraged in this message to let go of the lies that your situation is perm...

Waiting With Expectancy
Waiting with expectancy means instead of worrying if God is going to answer a prayer, you’re thanking Him for working behind the scenes, talking like a miracle is just around the corner, and acting like the answer is on its way.

Hope Fuels Our Faith
The Scripture says that “faith is the substance of things hoped for” (Hebrews 11:1). Do you have a picture in your mind of what you’re hoping for? God designed hope to fuel your faith. Hope picks you up! The Scripture says that “we have this hope as an anchor for the soul” (Hebrews 6:19). It anchors you in disappointing times, in challenging times, in times of failure! If you keep your hopes up, faith will pick you up and move you to the fulfillment of the promise....


Sleep On
God doesn’t remove every frustration in our lives. In fact, many of the things that frustrate us, God uses to grow us and take us to the next level. Joel will show you how to live in peace no matter your circumstance. You will learn how to deal with difficult people, let go of the approval of others, and run your race strong, focused, and unshakeable! The Scripture says in Psalm 46:10, “Be still and know that I am God.” As you learn to let go and let God, you will enjoy your life more and become everything ...

Keep Your Vision In Front of You
Many people lose their passion in life because there is nothing to remind them of their dreams, hopes and prayers. If you’ll have a big vision, God will not only do what you’re dreaming about, He will do more than you can ask or think.-Visit https://joelosteen.com to receive daily updates and encouragement from Joel Osteen.Have you followed Joel Osteen on Instagram? https://instagram.com/joelosteen....

Renew Your Mind
The scripture says in Romans 12, "do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." Our salvation on this earth starts in our mind. We're justified in our spirit, but we have to be sanctified in our mind. We have to set our mind apart from the old way of doing and being....


The Power of The Blessing
God wants to pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. When you honor God with your life there is a blessing God puts on you that gives you an advantage. It causes you to rise up when circumstances are trying to push you down. There is a force behind you, fighting your battles, bringing the right people, and opening doors you couldn’t open on your own. Find out in this exciting message how you have an advantage in life. You are God’s anointed. The blessing is stronger than an...

The Power of I AM
Instead of saying negative “I Ams”, - “I am unfocused. I am never going to succeed”, say what God says you are. When you change your “I Ams,” your life will change for the better. The seeds of greatness God’s placed on the inside will spring forth. -Visit https://joelosteen.com to receive daily updates and encouragement from Joel Osteen.Have you followed Joel Osteen on Instagram? https://instagram.com/joelosteen....

Lift Up Your Eyes
The writer of Hebrews says, “We inherit the promises of God through faith and patience” (Hebrews 6:12). You may not look like you want to look or be where you want to be, but don’t devalue the journey to get there. Don’t start thinking that the journey isn’t worth it. Don’t despise the process because you just want to get to the promises. Can I tell you this? The process is what builds your strength and develops you. The process is what makes you become what God’s called you to be....


Your Faith
There’s nothing more powerful than your faith. When you believe, that’s what activates God’s power. Are you living with expectancy knowing that God is bigger than your problems, greater than that sickness, and more powerful than that addiction? Or, are you discouraged, thinking things will never change? It’s time to get your faith back; God is passing by. He has all power.You have to be more determined than what’s trying to stop you if you’re going to reach your potential. In this message, you’ll learn how ...

Embracing Every Season - Jonathan Osteen
People say, “My season’s coming. I’m just waiting on my season.” God has a purpose and a plan for today. Let’s not rush through it. Let’s not dread it. Instead, let’s say, “God, since this is where you have me right now, I’m going to embrace it. I’m going to be my best. I’m going to make the most of it."--- --- --- ---Follow Jonathan Osteen on Instagram if you are not alreadyhttps://www.instagram.com/jonathanosteen...

How Are You Handling Worry?
Did you know that the word worry comes from the Old English wyrgan, which means “to strangle?” If we let them, worry and stress literally choke the joy out of our lives. So how are you handling worry?Worry pulls us away from God’s power, but worship draws us to Him, and His presence changes us....


A Son Mentality
We’ve all been through disappointments and unfair situations. Because of negative things of the past, even mistakes we’ve made, it’s easy to have the wrong image of ourselves. Too many times we’ve developed a slave mentality where we don’t pray bold prayers, we don’t believe for our dreams, and we don’t expect good breaks because we feel unworthy.But 1 John 3:2 tells us we are sons of God. Joel wants to help you gain a new vision and understanding of who you are, not thinking about what you were, what you’v...

By This I Know
Something powerful happens when you remember what God has done for you. During trials and difficulties, you don’t have to live worried or afraid! You have a history with God. He’s brought you through in the past; He’s going to bring you through in the future. He was fighting your battles then, and He’s fighting your battles now. You will learn in this faith-building message how to go back over your history and see how God has brought you through. When you start thanking God for your past victories, faith wi...

Finding The Extraordinary In The Routine
Today I want to remind you that Jesus said, “I came that you may have life, and have it in abundance” (John 10:10). He came so that we could live an abundant live, an extraordinary life, an exceptional life.God wants you to be extraordinary in your thinking. He wants you to expect more, to strive for more, to go for more because when you’re the very best you can be today, your tomorrow will be better....

What's On Your Throne
God wants to reign in your life in a new way. He wants to show you his favor like you’ve never seen.But are you letting worry, offense, or a problem consume your mind to where you’re not giving God any thought? You see, what you constantly think about or give your attention to, is what you’re putting on the throne. Life is too short to live worried, overwhelmed by problems, and upset. This message will help you live more praise minded as you let God reign over your circumstances and fight your battles. If ...


Investing In Your Future
I want to remind you today to spend your time investing in your future, not in the past. Investing in the past is when you relive your pains and disappointments, focusing on who hurt you, what didn’t work out, and the mistakes you’ve made. That’s a waste of time and energy. You can’t do anything about what happened in your past—it’s over with. But you can do something about today. When you focus on what you can change, and not on what you can’t change, that is a good investment in the future....

The Right Recording
There’s a recording constantly playing in our mind telling us who we are. The problem for some people is their recording is negative. The good news is you can control your recording. Joel wants to show you how you don’t have to let negative thoughts keep playing. You can replace them with God’s voice of victory! Just like the negative gets down into your subconscious and holds you back, God’s voice of victory will push you forward. This message will help you pay attention to what’s playing in your mind. Don...

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!...


No More Hiding
God created you to shine, leave your mark, and make a difference in the world. Your gift isn’t just for you; it’s to share with the world.Are you hiding your gifts, talents and personality today because of fear? It’s time to let your light shine! Joel wants to show you in this inspiring message how God has put gifts and talents in you and has given you dreams and goals that are unique to your life.God calls you a mighty hero and He will equip and increase you, but you have to do your part and step out. It’s...

Let The S-O-N Shine On You
It’s time to let the light shine in fully. Make a decision to do what it takes to grow up tall and straight. Get rid of whatever is blocking the light and let God’s presence shine on you and light your life to a blaze!...

God's Got This
We all have things that come against us and experience things we don’t understand. It’s easy to live uptight wondering how everything is going to work out. It we’re not careful, we’ll get discouraged, live worried, and not believe things are going to change. But there’s a simple phrase you have to get down in your spirit - God’s got this. Joel wants to teach you in this encouraging message that you don’t have to figure it all out. In the natural, you may not see a way, but that’s okay, we serve a supernatur...


Encourage Yourself
It’s great when family and friends are there to encourage us in difficult times, but we can’t depend on others to encourage us. We have to learn to encourage ourselves in the Lord every day. We have to remember what God has done in our life. We have to get in agreement with God and say, “Thank You, God, for who You made me to be. You made me to be more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus. I’m an overcomer because You back me up, because I have Your Word in me, and I will overcome this.”...

The Chain Breaker
No chain is too much for the Most High God! Have you found yourself saying, “I’ll always struggle with my temper. I’ll never get ahead. I’ll always have this sickness?”Joel wants to show you in this eye-opening message the conquering power of our God! Our God is a chain breaker. You were not created to be bound.It doesn’t matter how big of a struggle you may face, or how long something has held you back, time is not a limiting factor with our God. He is ready to release you today into wholeness, power, and ...

Your Father's World
Before you were formed in your mother’s womb, God knew you. In fact, He’s already planned out all of your days. He didn’t create you to be ordinary, average, and to just make it through life. No, Joel wants to show you in this exciting message how God can’t wait to give you His world. Luke 12:32 tells us that, “It is the Father’s good pleasure to the give you the kingdom.”His world is big! His kingdom is abundant, full of favor, joy, peace and opportunity. Because you are His most prized possession, He’s go...


Don't Faint In Your Mind
We all face opposition and things that come against us. It’s easy to get discouraged and give up on what we’re believing for. But Joel wants to excite your faith and show you how Hebrew 12:1 teaches us that all of heaven is cheering you on!When you feel alone and are tempted to faint in your mind and settle, you can look up and see through your eyes of faith that all of heaven is rooting for you. You’re not running alone!Let this message inspire you to persevere through your trials so you can leave a mark o...

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....

The Twenty-First Day
The Psalmist said in Psalm 56:9, “The moment you pray, the tide of the battle turns.” In the unseen realm, God begins to change things in your favor the moment you pray. But many times, when we’ve been praying for a long time for something, and don’t see anything happening in the natural, it can seem like God went on vacation and our prayers aren’t doing any good. Joel wants to show you that even when you can’t see behind the scenes, God is at work. He not only heard you when you prayed, but He took it one ...


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!...

Keep Your Joy
Are you letting the little things steal your joy? We all have opportunities to get upset and go around frustrated each day. But in the big picture, most of the things that are upsetting us don’t really matter. Joel wants to teach you how to keep your joy no matter what goes on around you. Psalm 94:13 teaches us that God gives us the power to remain calm in times of adversity. We can’t control how other people act or what happens to us, but we can control how we respond.Don’t let the small things keep you fr...

Protect Your Heart from Offense
Proverbs 17:9 says, “He who covers and forgives an offense seeks love.” You have to cover that offense. You have to forgive. It doesn’t belong to you. It didn’t originate with you. That offense came from that situation. It belongs to that person. It is not yours unless you take it in. It is only yours to forgive and to cover. The Scripture doesn’t say that offenses won’t come, but it tells us how to deal with an offense—cover it and forgive. The choice is ours. We can either seek and go after love or we can...


More Than Enough
Psalm 35:27 tells us that God takes pleasure in prospering and increasing us in ways that we can never imagine. Yet, many people today live with a limited mindset expecting to barely get by when God has so much more for His children!Joel will show you in this exciting message how lack is not your destiny. You were created to live an abundant life.Let this message build your expectancy level for the exciting things God wants to do in your life. When you keep God first place, there is a blessing on your life ...

Under Construction
Like an architect draws up blueprints to build a house, God has a master plan designed for your life. He can see how to work out things in our lives and how to weave everything together in His perfect plan and timing.Let this message build your confidence in the Builder. He knows how to take the messy places in your life, the mistakes, shortcomings and struggles, the places and things you think may “disqualify you from God’s blessings” and turn them into a masterpiece.God loves you just as you are, where yo...

Just Obey
Every day there are opportunities where God longs to speak to you and situations where He wants to guide you down the best path. But first, we have to listen.Isaiah 1:19 says, “If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the good things of the land.” In this message, Joel will show you how many times we don’t realize that God is speaking to us. You will learn how God has secrets He wants to whisper to you with inside information that will propel you forward. If you’ll be sensitive to His voice, the still...


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 H...

From Patient to Physician
Paul said in 2 Corinthians 1:4, “The comfort we received in our difficulties, we can share that same comfort with others in their time of need.” Joel will encourage you in this message to live life outward. Who can you bless today? Who can you encourage with your gifts and experiences?Live life as a blesser, a lifter, a healer by using what you’ve been through to help someone else. You are where you are today because someone else poured into you. God is counting on us to be the difference maker in someone e...

Knowing You Are Loved
A lot of people live with a—I think He loves me—mentality when it comes to God's love for them, thinking His love is based on their performance. But God is not like people. People may love you conditionally, but God's love for you is unconditional. You don't have to earn God's love; He loves you just the way you are. There is no mistake great enough to cancel out God’s amazing love and His plans for your life.Let this message teach you about God’s amazing love for you. When you know God loves you, you’ll l...


Strengthen Your Inner Man
Paul prayed for the Ephesians “that God would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man” (Ephesians 3:16). The inner man is strengthened by God through the Spirit. We have to take time; we have to find room in our busy lives to let the Spirit of God minister life to us, to be touched by the Word of God and the very presence of Almighty God because that’s what strengthens our inner man. We cannot neglect our inner man or we’ll be weak, ...

How Bad Do You Want It
God has placed His seeds of greatness in you. He has placed everything within you to fulfill every purpose He's placed inside of you. But James 2 teaches us that there is action we have to take on our part, that our faith without works is dead. Discover in this empowering message how we have to go after the things in our heart with an unrelenting passion. Learn about different heroes in the Bible who pressed past obstacles and found their healing and breakthroughs.Your will is one of the most powerful thing...

Contentment Is a State of Mind
Finding contentment is a goal we should strive for every day. A lot of people get confused about the concept of contentment because they think it means they have to settle for where they are. However, there's a huge difference between being content and being complacent. When you are content, you are satisfied; you're full. It's not that you aren't pursuing your goals or striving to reach new levels, you are just able to enjoy where you are on the way to where you are going....


Room Enough
Are you discouraged today because you’re facing a difficult battle? We all have things that come against us in life and encounter unfair people and situations. But just because you have opposition doesn’t mean you’re not in God’s will. God is in control, and He’s directing your steps. What’s meant for your harm, God is going to use to your advantage.Joel will show you how to stay encouraged and gain a fresh perspective of trials. Setbacks are setups in our lives for God to do something greater. With God on...

Hearing In Your Spirit
Just as we have physical ears, we have spiritual ears where God speaks to us.Many times, God will speak things that contradict what we see with our eyes. That’s why we have to walk by faith and not by sight.People may tell you that you’ll never get well, circumstances may look like you’ll never get out of debt, never meet the right person, or never accomplish your dreams. But if you listen with your spiritual ears, you’ll hear a voice saying, “Healing is coming. You will lend and not borrow. New doors are a...

You Are a Child of Promise
The Bible speaks a lot about our words. Proverbs 18:21 says, “The tongue has the power of life and death.” And James wrote, “Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires. Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things” (James 3:4–5). He recognized that although our tongue is a very small part of our body, it directs the course of our life for victory or defeat even when we’re in the midst of st...


Recognizing Your Value
Too often, we base our value on how somebody is treating us, how successful we are, or how perfectly we have lived our life. The problem is that all of those things can change. Joel wants to show you how your value doesn’t come from people or things; it comes from your Creator.You may feel average today, but 1 John 4:4 says, “You belong to God.” You are extremely valuable! Learn to recognize your value in who God made you to be and how He sees you. You are a child of the Most High God! This message will giv...

Express Gratitude Through Actions
There is a principle in God’s Word that says, “Give, and it will be given to you” (Luke 6:38). “Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Galatians 6:7). When you do something for someone else—take them to a doctor’s appointment, pick them up when their car is broken down, call them, cheer them up, do something that no one else can do for them—God’s going to do special things for you. When we go out and make someone else’s day, we’re saying, “God, thank You for making my day” because when you make someo...

Just One Good Break
You may have situations that don’t look like they’ll ever change, but God has already arranged good breaks in your future. All it takes is just one touch of God’s favor! Joel will show you how you can live from a place of peace and rest knowing that God is not only fighting your battles, but He’s lined up the exact situations you need in your life to bring you where you’re supposed to be. He has the right people that are going to help you already planned out. He has solutions to problems that you can’t even...


Have a Compassionate Heart
Compassion is powerful. Jesus didn’t just feel sorry for those in need. He didn’t say, “Oh well, that’s too bad.” No, His compassion moved Him to action. In the same way, 1 John 3:17 says about us, “If anyone…sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart of compassion against him, how can the love of God live in him?” We all have a heart of compassion that God wants to work through toward others, and it can either be open or shut. If it is shut off, God’s love cannot flow out of it, which I believe is the ...

Manasseh is Coming
Do you feel forgotten today? Have you gone through situations that are so painful and hard to forget, you don’t know how you’ll ever feel light again?If there’s anyone who understands heartache and betrayal, it’s Joseph. He was betrayed by his brothers, thrown into a pit, and eventually sold into slavery. But all along, God had a plan for Joseph. After his trials, Joseph ended up being in charge of all Egypt. He was blessed in such a way that he said in Genesis 41:51 (AMP), “God has made me forget all my tr...

Live the Resurrected Life
We recently celebrated the resurrection of Jesus in an Easter service, and now I want to encourage you to not just celebrate His resurrection but live the resurrection life He came to give us. How do we live this resurrection life? We have to take hold of everything Jesus has given us through His death and resurrection. He took your sin and shame, everything that would ever try to come on you, and He paid your debt in full. “He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west” (Psalm 103:12)...


It's a Setup
Nothing has randomly happened in your life. Everything has been carefully orchestrated, even the good and the bad, the blessings and the disappointments. Even in times where we’ve failed and made mistakes, God has already planned how to restore us and get us back on course.God has ordered your steps. Your life is divinely orchestrated. Let Joel teach you how to keep moving forward even when you don’t understand. Stay in faith when people betray you. Do the right thing when the wrong thing is happening. Your...

Remove the Grave Clothes
God’s love for us is relentless, and His grace goes to the most unlikely places and people. But just as God used Jesus to raise Lazarus from the grave, God is counting on us to run after the hurting and to go after the broken.It’s easy to judge others, but underneath the dirt, the mess and bad decisions, there’s a son or a daughter of the Most High God. God is counting on us to represent His love and redemption to those in need. They may be bound on the outside, but like Lazarus, on the inside they’re a per...

Be Mindful of the Words You Speak
Jesus said, “The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63). When you get the Word of God in your mouth, you create a strong, spiritual life that will send you on the course to life. Your words will direct you beside still waters and take you to green pastures. They’ll lead you to refreshment for your soul. Let’s be very attentive to the words that we speak. Let’s remember our words are containers of power that can direct our course. We can prophesy our future....


Uncommon
God did not create you to be common. We are living in a day where the standards are being lowered, where it’s acceptable to compromise, take the easy way out, and have no integrity. If we’re not careful, we’ll adapt to our environment and become like everyone else. This way of living can limit what God wants to do in our lives.Paul said in Romans 12:2, “Don’t let society squeeze you into its mold.” Learn why it’s important to live with integrity and excellence. When you make the decision to be uncommon, to ...

Develop Self-Control To Rise Higher With God
We all have the capacity to grow and produce more than we’re producing right now. We all can do more for God. We have so much more inside us!But you have to say, “No, I’m not going to let the flesh run wild. I’m going to put it under control with my strong spirit man.” Discipline and self-control are the tools that God gave you to succeed and to reach your full potential....

Yes Is Coming
Are you ready to give up on what you’re believing for because all you’ve heard is no? Well, it’s time to get ready because yes is coming! No matter who has said no or how many times a door has closed, God has already set a date to bring His promises to pass in your life. But there is one thing God needs from you, and that is your yes. Second Corinthians 1 says, “God’s yes and our yes together make a sure thing.”Let Joel teach you how to be determined in your faith like never before. Your faith will grow as ...


Be Faithful With The Small Things
God wants to increase us, but oftentimes we overlook the small things because we want to go big. We may even think that we don’t have to deal with something small because it’s not going to make that much difference anyway. It’s easy to think that how we’re treating our spouse or all the complaining we do about our job doesn’t really matter. Perhaps there’s a lack of integrity, leaving the office early, thinking the boss isn’t looking. And on top of that, too often we think we don’t have the right education ...

Blessed Out of Season
It’s easy to feel discouraged when you’re in a dry season, especially when you don’t see how your situation will work out. But God’s not limited to seasons. His blessing can find you out of season.In this encouraging message, discover how God worked in the lives of those in the Bible in unusual ways. You will be inspired in your own life to trust that God can cause winds of provision and favor to fill your life with unexpected blessings that can change your life....

Roll Away The Stone
Nothing is more amazing or significant than the power displayed at the resurrection. This is what separates our faith from any other on earth. Jesus paid the ultimate price for our sins on the cross. He lived a perfect and sinless life and gave it as a sacrifice for your sins and mine. And when all hope seemed to be gone, He miraculously came to life again. What this means is: When we accept Him as our Lord and Savior, we are completely forgiven...for anything...for everything...forever!...


The God Who Overrules
Do you feel stuck or restricted today because of a past mistake, an addiction, a health matter you’re desperate to see change or a situation you can’t control? We all face limiting situations, but the good news is that God can overturn areas where we feel blocked from moving forward and living our fullest lives. The Psalmist said in Psalm 9:3-4, “My enemies turn in retreat, they are defeated before you. For you have judged in my favor.” Let Joel show you in this powerful message how God desires to deliver y...

Have a Peacemaker's Heart
The apostle Paul says, “If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone” (Romans 12:18). There is a place in your spirit that says, “I am a peacemaker, and because I am a peacemaker, I can trust God to fight my battles for me and bring the right outcome.” We have the ability to draw the line in the sand and say, “I’m not going to step over this line into strife and division. I’m going to make peace.” Let’s be instruments of peace because there’s a blessing in the life of a peacem...

The Smile of God
We all have people that have done us wrong. It’s easy to hold on to the hurt, be vindictive, and try to pay people back. But Joel will teach you how one test we all have to pass is not just forgiving people, but being good to those that have not been good to us. This is when you are the smile of God. You can trust God to be your vindicator and fight your battles. God is a God of justice. He sees every wrong, every hurt, and every tear. He has a way to make all of your wrongs right when you trust Him and ke...


The Purpose of Commitment
What is it that you want to accomplish? Proverbs 16:3 says, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and He will establish your plans.” You can’t do it on your own, but you’re not on your own. You can commit those important things in your life to the God who is committed to you! He is saying, “Focus on your commitments and believe that I’m going to help you bring them to pass.” You have to put your plans into action if God is going to help you. It takes steps of faith on your part....

Favor in the Storm
You don’t have to be intimidated by trouble and trials any longer; God is right there with you through any challenge. His favor is going to make things happen that you didn’t see coming.It’s easy to believe we have favor when good things are happening, but Joel wants to show you how we have favor even in the challenge. God will cause you to succeed in the middle of trouble. He’s not limited by our conditions; He’s limited by our thinking. When you believe, all things are possible....

Make Time Alone With God
The way to develop an intimate relationship with God, a relationship where you hear His voice and let Him mold and make you into the person He wants you to be, is when you push away the distractions and simply sit at His feet. Perhaps you take a Scripture and just ponder over it and listen to what He is saying. Perhaps you sit quietly in His presence and say, “God, I love You today. Thank You for this day. Father, I want You to reveal more of Yourself to me.” Whatever that intimacy looks like for you, the o...


The Odds Are For You
Do you feel like the odds are against you today? Maybe you’re facing a difficult situation that doesn’t look like it will ever get any better. Or, you’ve prayed diligently for God to answer a specific prayer, but nothing is happening.Joel wants to open your eyes and show you in this message that something is happening. God is at work in your life and has a plan—His divine plan—to show out in your life and reveal His incredible favor and goodness in your life. But, you have to do your part and trust in God’s...

Stay Strong in God Through Joy
When the Israelites left Babylon and returned from captivity, they didn’t know all the difficult things they were going to face. But if they could go out with joy, that joy would be there to keep them in peace. No matter what you face, don’t let life push your joy down. Push your joy up and let it flow out and signal your victory!...

Take Your Seat
There is a seat of rest that has your name on it, and it’s time for you to rest. Enter into God’s rest!Many people today live overworked on the outside with no inner peace on the inside.

This message will teach you how to have an outer rest and an inner rest as you let God work in your life and fight your battles. As you learn to live from a place of rest, you will enjoy...


The Power of the Soil
If a good seed that is full of potential isn’t planted in good soil, it’s not going to become what it was created to be. In the same way, you’re a seed full of gifts, talents and potential, and you need healthy soil to bloom into everything God has created you to be. In this message, learn the importance and power of protecting your seed by choosing the right environment, friendships and mindsets. As you keep your environment healthy, you will flourish and become everything God has created you to be!...

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 ...

Seasons of Silence
We all have times where it feels like God went on vacation. But Joel wants to show you how God uses those seasons of silence to get us prepared. When you’re hidden, you won’t see anything happening on the outside, but on the inside God’s doing a work within you. He’s creating an opportunity to grow, to get stronger, and to come up higher. You’re getting prepared to go to new levels. You may be in a season of silence right now where you feel like you’re hidden, but the silence doesn’t mean God has forgotten...


Put God First In Your Life
Moses prayed this important prayer: “Teach us to number our days, that we can gain a heart of wisdom” (Psalm 90:12). I can hear the cry of his heart, “God, teach me and show me how to order and prioritize my day.” Remember that Moses was God’s man to lead all the Israelites toward the Promised Land, perhaps two million people. He was responsible to know how to get to the right places and find the answers to their problems. He had to hear from God for them. Perhaps you feel a little bit like Moses. Everybody...

The God Who Crosses His Arms
Your family or your past does not define you! You don’t have to be the most qualified, the most experienced, or come from the most influential family for God to bless you and take you higher. You may feel like you have some disadvantages that you were born into, but God is choosing you to start a generational blessing! Ephesians 1:5 tells us that God has adopted us into His own family. Because you’ve been adopted, you’re going to come into blessings that you didn’t deserve and favor that you didn’t work for...

Miracles Out of Mistakes
When we make mistakes, God doesn’t abandon us. Psalm 37:23-24 tells us, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord… Though he falls, he will not be destroyed; for the Lord will be there to pick him up.” No mistake you make can ever be too great to cancel out God’s plan for your life. Let Joel show you that it’s time to believe again in this redeeming message. No matter what you’ve done, if you will shake off guilt and move forward in your thinking and expectations, God will get you to where you’re sup...

You’ll be inspired to have faith again for the goodness of God in your life to exceed your expectations! We think ordinary, but God thinks extraordinary. What He has planned for you is...

God Is In Your Story
Many people think they need to change their lives before they can draw near to God. They need to clean up a few things. But we can’t clean up our own lives. We can’t bring the change God wants to bring in our lives. He had to come to us through Jesus, and He has brought us salvation through Jesus’ blood. Only Jesus Christ can change your life. There’s no mess you’ve made that He can’t help you clean up. In Jesus, you are made right with God. There is nothing that God cannot do for you through Jesus Christ. ...

It's Already Set Up

Surrounded By The Most High
Do you feel overwhelmed today? We all have times when we feel like we’re surrounded by difficulties. It’s easy to get discouraged and think, “I’ll never get out of this trouble.” But Joel wants to remind you—in the natural, all you may see is your troubles and obstacles, but take another look. The Most High God is surrounding you!Psalm 91:11 says He will command His angels to watch over you. God stands watch over your life. You’re surrounded by favor, surrounded by healing and surrounded by angels. We all ...

Pit Praisers
Anyone can give God praise when they’re on the mountaintop, but will you praise Him in the valley? Psalm 34:1, “I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise will continually be in my mouth.” That means in the good times and in the tough times. In this message, learn how to develop an attitude of gratitude regardless of the circumstances. As you do, you will experience God’s presence in your life in greater ways!...

What Are You Delighting In?
When you delight in the Lord, you love what the Lord loves. You love the things that God loves. You want to do what God wants you to do. You want to go where God wants you to go. When you love God, your desires are for the things of God and you give yourself to them. The apostle Paul sums up what I’m trying to say: “The heart regulates the hands” (2 Corinthians 8, MSG). What is in your heart, you put your hands to. What you’ve allowed to form in your heart, you go after because you have passion for it. Your...


Feed Your Destiny - Joel Osteen
What are you allowing in your spirit? The people you’re spending time with, what you’re dwelling on all day, the memories you’re allowing to replay— it is either inspiring you, building your faith, pushing you toward your destiny and dreams, or it’s limiting you.Joel wants to show you how to stay on course and keep your faith fed. Even in the middle of difficulties or after trauma and great trials, you can choose to feed your faith. The seeds of greatness waiting to spring forth will come out as you feed yo...

Ease Is Coming - Joel Osteen
We all go through seasons of struggle and difficulty but that’s not your permanent home.

When you come in to this ease, what used to be a struggle, will not be a struggle anymore. There’s going to be a supernatural grace, a fa...

Healed Through Humility - Joel Osteen
Are you ready to see your life go to a new level? Then it’s time to walk in greater humility. It takes humility to overlook an insult, to let somebody else be right for the sake of peace, and to not have your way all the time. But if you want to have strong flourishing relationships, Joel will show you how to walk in greater levels of self-control and honor those God has placed in your life. First Peter 5:6 teaches us, “Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, in due time He will exalt you.” When you w...

Creating A Winning Atmosphere For Your Family - Victoria Osteen
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.

Created To Do Good Works - Victoria Osteen
Think about the simple things that you will do today and consider the possible effects.

Be an Extravagant Giver - Victoria Osteen

Stand Firm In Your "Yes" to God - Victoria Osteen
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?...

Healing Words - Joel Osteen
It’s amazing what one kind word can do! Proverbs 18:4 says, “A person’s words can be life-giving water.” Proverbs 15:4 says, “A gentle tongue brings healing.” When we think of healing, many times we think of praying for people for healing.

Learn how you can change the atmosphere in your home and help break the chains that are holding your loved ones ...

We're Wired With God's Power - Victoria Osteen
Can you imagine a house fully wired with electricity, but with the main power switch turned off? It wouldn't make sense to live without power when it's available to us.When you make Jesus the Lord of your life, you become fully connected to your source of power. But you have to turn that switch on. Romans 10:19 says to believe in our hearts and confess with our mouths that Jesus is Lord. When you believe and confess the Word of God, you are activating God's power in your life....

Peace With Yourself - Joel Osteen
Do you like who you are? The strengths and the weaknesses? We all have areas where we need to improve, but many people go through life feeling wrong on the inside, not really liking who they are and dwelling repeatedly on their shortcomings. This type of thinking can limit the great things God wants to do and keep you from moving forward.Joel wants to help you get a new perspective of yourself and how God sees you. He loves you and approves of you just the way you are. Grow in greater confidence in who God ...

Hope Fuels Our Faith - Victoria Osteen

Designed to Run - Victoria Osteen
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 i...

A Surge Is Coming - Joel Osteen

When the Water Breaks - Joel Osteen

When you’re anchored to hope, God will make things happen that you could never ...

Abraham Was A God-Made Man - Victoria Osteen
When we hear about a “self-made man,” it usually refers to someone who had very little and became wealthy and influential all on his own. Abraham, the father of our faith, also became wealthy, influential, and left an amazing legacy for the whole world, but his label reads a “God-made man.” Abraham wears the label “God-made man” because he willingly trusted God to take him to a land unknown to him, and he trusted God to make him fully into the person He created him to become. Abraham was not called by God b...

Overcoming Weariness - Joel Osteen
As we go through life’s many seasons, it’s easy to grow tired and weary. But when we are weary, we don’t enjoy the greatest blessings in our lives like we should.

Discover how to have balance physically, spiritually and emotionally so you’ll have the stre...


Know Who You Are In Christ - Victoria Osteen
In Genesis 1, the first thing that God says about you and me is that He created us in His image. Having His image and likeness inside of us was meant to be our source of strength and confidence. The question is, have you allowed the enemy and things that have happened to you distort the image of God in your life? You need to get your true image back!...

Be Vulnerable - Joel Osteen

It Is Finished - Joel Osteen
Instead of accepting an addiction as a part of your life and allowing it to stay, you need to announce to that addiction: “It is finished! You don’t control me, and you can’t keep me from my destiny. The price has been paid. I am free. I am whole. I am clean.” When you rise up and tell the past, tell the poverty, tell the guilt, “It is finished! This is not who I am. I am blessed. I am prosperous. I am victorious,” strongholds are broken in the unseen realm, chains are loosed, and favor is released....


God Will Crown Your Efforts - Victoria Osteen

Faith For The Middle - Joel Osteen

Get rid of whatever is blocking the Light and let His presence shine on you and light your pathway to a blaze!...


God's Got This - Joel Osteen
We all have things that come against us and experience things we don’t understand. It’s easy to live uptight wondering how everything is going to work out. It we’re not careful, we’ll get discouraged, live worried, and not believe things are going to change. But there’s a simple phrase you have to get down in your spirit - God’s got this. Joel wants to teach you in this encouraging message that you don’t have to figure it all out. In the natural, you may not see a way, but that’s okay, we serve a supernatur...

How Are You Handling Worry? - Victoria Osteen
Did you know that the word worry comes from the Old English wyrgan, which means “to strangle?” If we let them, worry and stress literally choke the joy out of our lives. Worry pulls us away from God’s power, but worship draws us to Him, and His presence changes us. So how are you handling worry?...

A Son Mentality - Joel Osteen
We’ve all been through disappointments and unfair situations. Because of negative things of the past, even mistakes we’ve made, it’s easy to have the wrong image of ourselves. Too many times we’ve developed a slave mentality where we don’t pray bold prayers, we don’t believe for our dreams, and we don’t expect good breaks because we feel unworthy.But 1 John 3:2 tells us we are sons of God. Joel wants to help you gain a new vision and understanding of who you are, not thinking about what you were, what you’v...


Your Second Wind is on its Way
There are times in life that we all get tired: tired of trying to make a business grow, tired of dealing with a sickness, tired of raising a difficult child, tired of living lonely, waiting to meet the right person.But Isaiah 40:31 says, “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”Wait upon the Lord and hope in Him. Don’t give up when victory is right around the corner. God promises He will...

Build People Up With Your Words - Victoria Osteen
What’s a bucket filler? It’s a person who is making positive deposits of kindness and compassion in other people’s lives, someone who is adding value to their lives. Your words can be the glue that holds your relationships together when you speak positive, faith-filled words to others....

The Twenty-First Day - Joel Osteen
The Psalmist said in Psalm 56:9, “The moment you pray, the tide of the battle turns.” In the unseen realm, God begins to change things in your favor the moment you pray. But many times, when we’ve been praying for a long time for something, and don’t see anything happening in the natural, it can seem like God went on vacation and our prayers aren’t doing any good. Joel wants to show you that even when you can’t see behind the scenes, God is at work. He not only heard you when you prayed, but He took it one ...


Don't Be A Complainer - Victoria Osteen
A faultfinder is defined as “a person given to harsh judgments and to finding faults.” None of us want to wear that label, and none of us want to be around a faultfinder. But it’s so easy to see what’s wrong in a situation and what could be done better. It’s so easy to see what’s wrong with another person and how they could change for the better. Our natural minds tend to always gravitate to the negative, and it causes us to find fault.You can’t stop all the negative thoughts you have about people and situa...

Stay Committed - Joel Osteen
We all have opportunities to give up on what we’re believing for and walk away from uncomfortable situations. But Joel wants to show you why it’s important to not give up on the promises God put in your heart or on the people placed in your life. Learn the importance of loyalty and faithfulness and how they tie into your destiny. Elisha received a double portion of Elijah’s anointing when he stayed committed until the end of Elijah’s life. In the same way, if you want to walk in the fullness of God’s blessi...

The Good Father - Joel Osteen
All of us in some way have been wounded from the wrong doing of others. Many carry scars and deep wounds from childhood or from those closest to us. But Joel wants to show you how lingering pain and disappointment doesn’t have to hold you back anymore. The Good Father wants to pay you back for every injustice. Instead of staying stuck wondering why this happened, learn to call out to God. The Good Father will not only hear your call, but He’ll make more out of your life than you ever imagined. Luke 12:32 sa...


Learn to Love Well - Victoria Osteen
Just as people grow and their lives change, we have to adapt our love to those changes, and our love has to mature and grow. This is so important that the apostle Paul prayed for the Philippian church: “And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight” (Philippians 1:9 NIV). It wasn’t that the church was deficient in love, but Paul was saying, “Your love has so much potential to go so much further and build a greater foundation in your lives. Agree with me eve...

Bless Your Enemies - Joel Osteen
Life is too short to hold on to pain and past hurts. Have you been holding on to an offense that you need to let go of today? Let Joel show you how to turn your hurt over to God, and let Him and be your vindicator. It’s human nature to want to make your wrongs right, but God wants you to bless your enemies.

Let this message teach you how to relax and live at rest knowing that God is unfolding His plan in your life....
