Joel Osteen Daily Devotion: For the Best

 Joel Osteen Daily Devotion: For the Best. 

Today’s Scripture: Psalm 119:71, MSG - My troubles turned out all for the best—they forced me to learn from your textbook.

Today’s Word: When you understand the principle that God is going to use difficulties for your best, life gets much more freeing. You don’t get upset when things happen that you don’t like. You know God allowed it, and He’s going to use it for good. It’s a part of the process. He may be developing patience in you. Whatever it is, He has a purpose for it. Keep the right perspective; it’s all good.

We’re not going to understand everything that happens and doesn’t happen in our lives, but God sees the big picture. He knows where the dead ends are, the shortcuts, the bumpy roads that are going to cause you heartache and pain. He’ll keep doors closed that you prayed would open because He knows going through them would be a waste of your time. God is asking, “Do you trust Me with your closed doors and unanswered prayers?” He’s getting you ready for the next level of your destiny.

Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You that You know best when it comes to the things I want and ask You for. Thank You that You are directing my steps and that You’ll take me through the things I don’t understand. It all may not feel good, but I declare that it is all good. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
