Don’t let small things hold you back - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotion 15 September Friday
"Catch the foxes for us, the little foxes that spoil the vineyards, for our vineyards are in blossom." (Song of Solomon 2:15, ESV)
Don’t let small things hold you back
it’s not big things that hold us back; it’s small things — especially
in our finances. A few dollars a day on coffee quickly turns into
hundreds. Too many credit cards become overwhelming to keep up with.
That person who hasn’t balanced their checkbook in two years
probably hears a little voice every time they go to write a check, “Get
your finances in order.” We have to realize that if we’re not faithful
with what we have, God won’t entrust us with more. One lady told me how
she hadn’t balanced her checkbook in so long that she just closed the
account and opened up a brand new one. At least she took action!
have people tell me all the time, “Joel, I’m going to start giving. I’m
going to start tithing my income as soon as I make more money.” No,
don’t wait until you have $1,000. Tithe on the $10 you have right now.
Don’t let the little foxes spoil your finances. Don’t let another day go
by without obeying God. When you set your finances in order, when you
put God first in all you do, you are opening the door for His blessing.
He says when we are faithful with the little, God will make us ruler
A Prayer for Today
God, today I choose to be obedient. I don’t want to let little foxes
affect my finances. I dedicate my resources to You. Speak to my heart
and show me where to give. I choose to be a faithful sower and expect to
reap an abundant harvest by Your Word in Jesus’ name! Amen."
