Topic: He Delivers You From All [Joel and Victoria Osteen’s Devotional 2 September 2019]
“…let them say continually, ‘Let the Lord be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.’” – Psalm 35:27, NKJV
In Scripture, the Israelites had been in slavery for many years. That was the land of “Barely Enough.” They were just enduring, surviving, barely making it through. One day God brought them out of slavery and took them into the desert, the land of “Just Enough.” Their needs were supplied, but nothing extra. It says their clothes didn’t wear out for forty years. They were probably grateful, but who really wants to wear the same clothes for forty years?
God eventually took them into the Promised Land, the land of “More Than Enough.” The food and supplies were plenteous. The bundles of grapes were so large that two grown men had to carry them. It’s called “the land flowing with milk and honey.” “Flowing” means it didn’t stop. It never ran out. It continued to have abundance. That’s where God is taking you.
You may be in the land of “Barely Enough” right now. You don’t know how you’re going to make it. Don’t worry. God hasn’t forgotten about you. He’s leading you to a new land. Just keep following His leading and move forward into the abundance He has in store for you!
PRAYER FOR TODAY:
Father, thank You for delighting to see me prosper. Thank You for the blessings You have given me and those You have in store for me. Help me to develop a vision for Your abundant life so that I can be a blessing everywhere I go in Jesus’ name. Amen.
