Joel and Victoria Osteen’s daily devotional May 26, 2016 - Don’t Allow Yourself to Settle
Today’s Scripture: “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” - (Galatians 6:9, ESV)
Topic: Don’t Allow Yourself to Settle [May 26, 2016]
Everyone has God-given dreams and desires. We all have goals we want to accomplish and situations we are believing will be turned around. Sometimes, it seems to take longer than we originally thought. Sometimes, things don’t work out the way we planned, and it’s easy to lose enthusiasm. If we’re not careful, we’ll get discouraged and end up just settling where we are. But God doesn’t want us to settle, He wants to take us higher. Many times, people miss out on God’s best simply because they give up too soon. They don’t realize how close they are to their victory.
Don’t let that be you today. Don’t give up just because things seem hard. You’ve invested so much, and you never know, just a few more days of believing, another few weeks of doing the right thing, another few months of staying in faith, and you could see that situation turn around. Remember, God is on your side! Keep standing and keep believing because you are closer than you think to fulfilling every desire He’s placed inside of you!
A Prayer for Today: “Father, today I come to You believing that You are working behind the scenes on my behalf. Give me Your strength to keep moving forward into the place of victory You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
