Joel Osteen (November-27-2021) Today’s Word: Power Up
Today’s Scripture: Ephesians 6:11, NIV – Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
Today’s Word: When you get out of bed in the morning, the first thing you should do is power up. Get your mind going in the right direction. Remind yourself: “I’m ready for this day. I am equipped. I am empowered. I have my armor on. I have my shoes of peace. I’m not going to get upset. I’m not going to let people steal my joy. I’m not going to fight battles that aren’t between me and my destiny. I have my helmet of salvation. I know I am forgiven. I am redeemed. I am approved by Almighty God. I’ve been handpicked by the Creator of the universe. I have my shield of faith. I’m expecting great things. I have my sword of the Spirit; I’m speaking God’s Word. I know every enemy is under my feet. I’ve been armed with strength for this battle.”
You could think, “This couldn’t be God; things are getting worse instead of better.” But you don’t know what God is up to. Those winds that are so noisy, the trouble, the opposition, that’s not going to keep you from your destiny. It’s leading you to your destiny. You’re not close to your miracle only when everything is calm and peaceful. Sometimes it’s the opposite. When it’s chaotic, when you’re tempted to panic, live afraid, worried, that means your miracle is on the way.
What are you doing? Powering up, getting prepared for a blessed, victorious, faith-filled day.
Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You for Your promise that no weapon formed against me will prosper. Thank You that I can put on Your armor today that is like a hedge of protection, mercy, and favor around me. I declare that I am armed and ready for the battle. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
