When Things Are Out of Control - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotion 14 September Thursday
"Good sense makes a man restrain his anger, and it is his glory to overlook a transgression or an offense." (Proverbs 19:11, AMPC)
When Things Are Out of Control
day, we have opportunities to get upset, be frustrated or get offended.
Maybe you had plans that didn’t work out, or someone was rude to you at
the office. Maybe you were doing something that should have taken one
hour, and it ended up taking three. Life is full of inconveniences, but
even though we can’t always control our circumstances, we can control
our reaction. I heard somebody say, “Life is 10% what happens to you and
90% how you respond.”
should always go out each day with a positive attitude, full of hope
and expecting God’s favor. But at the same time, we should recognize
that most days are not going to go exactly as we plan. Remember, we were
created to live in peace. Peace is our position of power. If you get
stressed because you got off schedule, or upset because your child
wouldn’t eat his breakfast, or frustrated because somebody offended you,
what you’re doing is giving away your power. Instead, make the decision
to release those offenses and disappointments so you can live in peace
and enjoy the day as the blessing God prepared for you!
A Prayer for Today
in heaven, today I release every care, concern, offense and
disappointment to You. I choose to keep the peace that You have given
me. I look forward to today knowing that You are with me, leading me in
victory in Jesus’ name! Amen."
