Joel Osteen Devotional 27th January 2024 (Today’s Word with Joel & Victoria)
Joel Osteen Devotional 27th January 2024 – Today’s Word with Joel & Victoria Osteen. Read Saturday Daily Devotional Message by Joel Osteen.
TOPIC: The Great Reversal
Matthew 20:16, MSG – “Here it is again, the Great Reversal: many of the first ending up last, and the last first.”
We all face times when we feel that we’re at a disadvantage. Others have more experience, more qualifications, more resources, and they get the good breaks, the best positions. It’s easy to feel overlooked, left out, secondary, not having much to offer. But God knows how to reverse the order. He loves to promote people who are not next in line, who are discounted, and push them into their destiny. One shift, one good break, and you’ll go from being overlooked to being in charge, from being disrespected to being honored.
Don’t get discouraged if you feel as though you’re the last, so to speak. You’re in perfect position for God to show out in your life. Don’t judge your situation too quickly. A reversal is coming, a shift, a suddenly, something uncommon, when God catapults you from the back to the front, from borrowing to lending, from “business is slow” to “business is booming,” from sickness to health. You couldn’t have made it happen. New doors are about to open, promotion is coming, healing is coming, breakthroughs are coming.
Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You specialize in the Great Reversal. Thank You for the countless things You’ve made happen for my good, things that I don’t deserve and that I could never make happen. I am getting ready for all the gifts of Your favor and grace. 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.
