Joel and Victoria Osteen’s daily devotional June 12, 2016 - Grace for Today
Today’s Scripture: “Give us this day our daily bread...” - (Matthew 6:11, NKJ)
Topic: Grace for Today [June 12, 2016]
Grace is God’s supernatural empowerment and unmerited favor on your life. All throughout scripture, we see God giving daily grace, power, and provision to His people. For example, when the people of Israel were in the wilderness headed toward the Promised Land, God gave them manna each morning to eat. It would just appear on the ground. But, He specifically instructed them to gather up only enough for that one day. In fact, if they gathered more than that, it wouldn’t last, it would spoil. God was teaching them trust His grace every single day.
In the same way, God doesn’t give us grace for a year at a time or even a month at a time. No, every 24 hours God has a fresh supply of grace, favor, wisdom and forgiveness. How are you going to make it through the seasons of your life? One day at a time.
Look for His grace today. Look for His provision today. Look for His hand of favor because He promises to supply everything that you need for today!
A Prayer for Today: “God, thank You for Your grace and favor on my life today. I know that You have a fresh supply of everything that I need—physically, spiritually and emotionally—today. Help me to trust You more as I seek Your face. In Jesus’ Name.”
