Joel Osteen Daily Devotional 12 August 2022 Message for Today
TOPIC: Walk on Water
Matthew 14:30, NLT – But when he saw the strong wind and the waves, he was terrified and began to sink. “Save me, Lord!” he shouted.
Joel Osteen Daily Devotional 12 August 2022 | TODAY’S WORD
In the darkness of night, Jesus came walking to His disciples across the stormy sea. Based on His word to “come,” Peter had the courage to walk on the water to Jesus. Imagine how amazed Peter was as he took step after step, looking at Jesus, doing the impossible. As long as Peter focused on what Jesus said, he was fine. But when he started focusing on what he saw, he began to doubt and sink.
It’s the same principle in life. If you stay focused on what you see, you can get talked out of your dreams. If you’re focused on how the medical report is not good or how you’ll never get out of debt, you’ll be limited. You have to stay focused on what God says. When you focus on what He promises, you’ll walk on water. You’ll go places you couldn’t go on your own. You’ll overcome obstacles that are much bigger. The winds and waves are a test. Don’t get distracted and start focusing on the negative.
PRAYER FOR TODAY
Father, thank You that the strong winds and waves of my life are not a problem for You. Thank You that You walk on water and call me to step out of my boat and walk with You. I trust Your leading in my life and declare that You are taking me where I couldn’t go on my own. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
