Use the Gift - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotional 24 August Wednesday
this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night,
so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you
will be prosperous and successful.” (Joshua 1:8, NIV)
Use the Gift
you ever received a gift card that you stored in a special place for so
long that you forgot you had it? Most of them have an expiration date,
and if you don’t use it, you will surely lose it! The same is true with
the Word of God. No, the Word doesn’t ever expire, but we have to take
action and use His Word in order to receive His promises. Just like you
exchange your gift card for the things you need at the store, His Word
gives you the power to receive every promise He has for you.
today’s verse tells us, when you declare His Word and keep your heart
and mind open to Him, you are using the gift. You are opening the door
for Him to move in your life. For example, if you’re facing lack in any
area, receive the gift of provision by declaring, my God shall supply
all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus
(Philippians 4:19). If there’s a mountain in your way, receive the gift
of victory that says, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens
me (Philippians 4:13).
and every day, use the gift He’s given you. Make His Word a priority
and don’t let it depart from your mouth. As you do, He’ll make your way
prosperous, and you’ll enjoy the abundant life He has for you!
A Prayer for Today
thank You for Your Word which is truth to set me free. I determine in
my heart to set Your Word into motion in my life. Keep me close to You
so that I can please You in everything I do in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
