Joel Osteen Today's Word: Contradictions


Joel Osteen  Today's Word: Contradictions

Today’s Scripture: Isaiah 64:8, NIV - Yet you, LORD, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.

Today’s Word: We all face contradictions and frustrations in our life that can cause us to get sour and give up on our dreams. When you face one of those frustrating situations, don't focus on it. When we keep asking why God hasn't changed something, we get stuck on the "why" questions of life and can't fulfill our destiny. Faith is trusting God when life doesn't make sense.

If you're going to reach your full potential, you can't be a weakling. You have to be a warrior. There will be things you don't understand, but God knows what He's doing. His ways are better than our ways. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. He is the Potter, and we are the clay. If it's supposed to be removed, He'll remove it. If not, dig your heels in and fight the good fight of faith. Don't let it work against you, but for you. You have the grace you need for every situation.

Prayer for Today: Father, thank You that You are the Potter and I am the clay. Thank You that even when I don't understand why something isn't changing, Your grace is sufficient for every situation I face. I'm going to keep trusting You and not let contradictions keep me from my destiny. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
