Topic: The Joy of the Lord is our Strength [Joel and Victoria Osteen’s Devotional 14 July 2019]
The righteous shall flourish… – Psalm 92:12, NKJV
I remember walking in the woods one time when I came upon a clearing filled with weeds. As far as I could see, these dead, dried-up, brown, ugly weeds had covered up everything. And blooming right in the middle of the weeds, there was one beautiful flower, so bright, so colorful, so refreshing. I thought, “That’s what God wants us to be: vibrant and blooming wherever He’s planted us.”
If you live and work in the midst of weeds, that doesn’t have to stop you from blooming. And that doesn’t mean you’re going to always be in that situation. It doesn’t mean you shouldn’t dream big or plan for the future. It simply means that you are going to choose to be your best on the way to where you’re headed. It means you go out each day with a smile on your face and a spring in your step. It means you give God glory in everything you do. Always remember, bloom where you’re planted and let Him work in and through you all the days of your life!
Prayer For Today:
Heavenly Father, please help me to bloom where I’m planted and be a light for your kingdom. Thank you working in and through me. I praise you for the days of my life. In Jesus name, Amen!
