File it Away - Joel Osteen Ministries daily devotion 10 November Friday
"Lord, my heart is not
haughty, nor my eyes lofty. Neither do I concern myself with great
matters, nor with things too profound for me." (Psalm 131:1, NKJV)
File it Away
things happen in your life that you don’t plan, do you find yourself
trying to reason it all out or look for a “file,” so to speak, in your
mind to put it in? What happens when you can’t reason it out or make
sense of it all?
the answer: Every one of us needs to create a file in our thinking
called the “I Don’t Understand It” file. When things come up that don’t
make sense, things that you can’t figure out, instead of getting
frustrated or confused, put it in your “I Don’t Understand It” file and
leave it alone. If you go through life trying to figure out why
something bad happened or why things didn’t work out, it will cause you
to become bitter and stuck in life. Part of trusting God means trusting
Him when things don’t make sense because we know that His plan is always
for good. We have to know that He will reveal all things in His
time—even if that means in eternity.
there something that didn’t make sense in 2017 that you know you need
to file away? Choose to trust God. Choose to keep moving forward. Know
that He loves you, He is for you, and He has a great plan for your
A Prayer for Today
today I surrender my past. I surrender my need to have all the answers,
and I choose to trust You. Fill me with Your peace. Fill me with Your
grace and compassion as I press forward into the victory You have
prepared for me in Jesus’ name. Amen."
