Did you know that the word worry comes from the Old English wyrgan, which means “to strangle?” If we let them, worry and stress literally choke the joy out of our lives. Worry pulls us away from God’s power, but worship draws us to Him, and His presence changes us. So how are you handling worry?

A Son Mentality | Joel Osteen Podcast

We’ve all been through disappointments and unfair situations. Because of negative things of the past, even mistakes we’ve made, it’s easy to have the wrong image of ourselves. Too many times we’ve developed a slave mentality where we don’t pray bold prayers, we don’t believe for our dreams, and we don’t expect good breaks because we feel unworthy.

But 1 John 3:2 tells us we are sons of God. Joel wants to help you gain a new vision and understanding of who you are, not thinking about what you were, what you’ve been through, or the mistakes you’ve made. When you realize who you are—a son and daughter of the Most High God— you’ll think differently and live differently as you expect God’s favor in your life.

There are times in life that we all get tired: tired of trying to make a business grow, tired of dealing with a sickness, tired of raising a difficult child, tired of living lonely, waiting to meet the right person.

But Isaiah 40:31 says, “But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

Wait upon the Lord and hope in Him. Don’t give up when victory is right around the corner. God promises He will renew your strength.

What’s a bucket filler? It’s a person who is making positive deposits of kindness and compassion in other people’s lives, someone who is adding value to their lives. Your words can be the glue that holds your relationships together when you speak positive, faith-filled words to others.

The Psalmist said in Psalm 56:9, “The moment you pray, the tide of the battle turns.” In the unseen realm, God begins to change things in your favor the moment you pray. But many times, when we’ve been praying for a long time for something, and don’t see anything happening in the natural, it can seem like God went on vacation and our prayers aren’t doing any good. Joel wants to show you that even when you can’t see behind the scenes, God is at work. He not only heard you when you prayed, but He took it one step further; He put the miracle in motion.

Just because you don’t see anything happening doesn’t mean the answer is not on the way. The people that see breakthroughs and promises fulfilled are the people that keep praying, keep believing and keep standing in faith. This message will inspire and equip you to be one of those people!

The End to Faultfinding – Victoria Osteen | Joel Osteen Podcast

A faultfinder is defined as “a person given to harsh judgments and to finding faults.” None of us want to wear that label, and none of us want to be around a faultfinder. But it’s so easy to see what’s wrong in a situation and what could be done better. It’s so easy to see what’s wrong with another person and how they could change for the better. Our natural minds tend to always gravitate to the negative, and it causes us to find fault.

You can’t stop all the negative thoughts you have about people and situations, but you can stop giving those thoughts life by speaking them out. Don’t give it life! Don’t ruin relationships and situations! You’re never going to see the change you want by finding fault.

So what should you do? God says, “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus” (1 Thessalonians 5:16–18 NIV). Let’s not be faultfinders. Let’s be those who pray and petition God for change with thanksgiving in our heart.

We all have opportunities to give up on what we’re believing for and walk away from uncomfortable situations. But Joel wants to show you why it’s important to not give up on the promises God put in your heart or on the people placed in your life. Learn the importance of loyalty and faithfulness and how they tie into your destiny.

Elisha received a double portion of Elijah’s anointing when he stayed committed until the end of Elijah’s life. In the same way, if you want to walk in the fullness of God’s blessing and receive everything God has for you, you have to stay committed to what God has in your life.
