RECEIVING THE OVERFLOW

A devotion for TODAY!!!
(from Joel and Victoria Osteen)

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE
“...we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance”
(Psalm 66:12, NIV)


TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Friend, no matter what your circumstances may look like today, God’s plan is to bring you through to a place of abundance. He wants you to have an abundance of peace, an abundance of joy, an abundance of resources — He wants you to overflow with His blessings so that you can be a blessing to the people around you.

One thing I’ve learned is that if you want to live in the overflow of God’s blessings, you have to have an attitude to receive the overflow. Remember, as a believer in Jesus, you are a child of the Most High God. Royal blood is flowing through your veins. You were not created to be average. You were not created to barely get by and drag through life. You have seeds of greatness on the inside. You are well able to do whatever God has called you to do!

Today, I encourage you to put your shoulders back, hold your head up high and start thinking like a victor. And when you’re a victor, you know that any adversity in your life is not permanent, it’s temporary. Have the attitude to receive the overflow of God’s abundance. Keep believing and keep expecting because it’s just a matter of time until He turns things around in your favor!


A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Heavenly Father, today I open my mind and heart to You. I choose to believe that You have a good plan for me. By faith today, I receive the blessings You have for me so that I can be a blessing to others. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen

I SO needed this RIGHT NOW and I really love how God knows my needs and speaks directly to me through all sorts of sources.  This Dream Warriorhood can be very difficult at times...with all the excitement and joy of literally living My Dream I am still in this world dealing with day to day trials, people who test my spirit and situations that can be very upsetting.

But I plan on holding my head high today because if I started my day out concerned and then found this in my email it is obvious to me that God has me TOTALLY COVERED!!!

Be blessed!!!
