Topic: Take the High Road
Genesis 30:27, 28, NKJV – And Laban said to him, Please stay, if I have found favor in your eyes, for I have learned by experience that the LORD has blessed me for your sake. Then he said, Name me your wages, and I will give it.
Joel Osteen February 10 2021 Daily Devotional Message:
For many years Jacob worked for his father-in-law, Laban, who lied to him, cheated him, and treated him unfairly. Jacob could have walked away in anger, but he took the high road and kept being his best, and Laban’s livestock increased abundantly because of the favor on Jacob’s life. But when Jacob finally decided to leave, Laban begged him to stay, offering him whatever wages he wanted. You may have people who haven’t kept their word to you. They don’t value who you are. Don’t be offended. Be a Jacob and keep doing the right thing. They may discount you now, but there will come a time when they recognize they are blessed because of you, and they’ll do anything to keep you. When Jacob left, he was not only a very wealthy man, but he left with the respect and the honor that he wasn’t given for many years. God is your vindicator. If you stay on the high road, He’ll make it up to you.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You see everything that has happened to me. Thank You that I can let go of every unfair thing and forgive quickly before bitterness can come in. I declare that You are my vindicator, and You will make my wrongs right. In Jesus Name, Amen.
