Joel Osteen 13 January 2024 Daily Devotional

Joel Osteen Devotional 13 January 2024 – Today’s Word with Joel & Victoria Osteen. Read Saturday Daily Devotional Message by Joel Osteen.

Topic: What’s the Danger?

Today’s Scripture
Matthew 16:23, NLT – Jesus turned to Peter and said, “…You are a dangerous trap to me. You are seeing things merely from a human point of view, not from God’s.”

Today’s Word
When Jesus told the disciples that He would suffer and be killed, Peter couldn’t see how this was part of God’s plan. It’s significant that Jesus then told Peter that he had become a dangerous trap to Him. Jesus was saying, “Peter, it’s dangerous to look at it only from the logical, from a natural perspective,” because that can cause you to miss your destiny.

On the way to the great things God has planned for you, you will face obstacles. Sometimes God lets you go through pain, through things you don’t understand. This is what faith is all about. When you look at the situation in the natural, it doesn’t make sense. But God is supernatural. He wouldn’t allow the pain if it was going to stop you. You’ll be tempted to fight it, but trust Him in the pain. Are you going to walk by faith and not by sight or get discouraged and give up? You have to live in agreement with God, not your human point of view, or you’ll miss the greatness He put in you.

Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that because You are supernatural, I am not limited to what is logical according to my natural perspective. Thank You that the trials I face today are leading me to my destiny. I am going to walk in faith and keep believing when there seems to be no solution. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

About Joel Osteen
Raised in Houston, Texas, with a loving family of seven and world-renowned parents in full-time ministry, Joel Osteen never imagined that he would follow so closely in his father’s footsteps. As a young man, his training and interests were behind the scenes in television production, though he was close to his father in ministry.

“There’s no greater feeling than being able to help people rise higher and overcome something and feel better about themselves. I think that we’re all made to help others, to lift people UP.”- JOEL OSTEEN

His father always encouraged him to preach, but Joel would politely decline time and time again until one day in October 1999 when his father was admitted to the hospital with kidney complications. Joel finally agreed to preach the next Sunday, and his father passed the following week. Joel’s first sermon was the last his father ever heard. Joel and his wife, Victoria, were suddenly thrust into full-time leadership of Lakewood Church.
