Express Gratitude Through Actions – Victoria Osteen | Joel Osteen Podcast

There is a principle in God’s Word that says, “Give, and it will be given to you” (Luke 6:38). “Whatever a man sows, that he will also reap” (Galatians 6:7). When you do something for someone else—take them to a doctor’s appointment, pick them up when their car is broken down, call them, cheer them up, do something that no one else can do for them—God’s going to do special things for you. When we go out and make someone else’s day, we’re saying, “God, thank You for making my day” because when you make someone else’s day, God will make your day. When God sees you blessing others, He blesses you, and there are no blessings to compare with the blessings of Almighty God.

So make someone’s day, knowing that God is going to make your day.

You may have situations that don’t look like they’ll ever change, but God has already arranged good breaks in your future. All it takes is just one touch of God’s favor!

Joel will show you how you can live from a place of peace and rest knowing that God is not only fighting your battles, but He’s lined up the exact situations you need in your life to bring you where you’re supposed to be. He has the right people that are going to help you already planned out. He has solutions to problems that you can’t even see right now.

You don’t have to live life worried about how things will work out anymore because God has promised in Psalm 138:8 that He will work out His plan for your life. Instead, release your faith and trust Him. His plan is better than your plan!

Have a Compassionate Heart – Victoria Osteen | Joel Osteen Podcast

Compassion is powerful. Jesus didn’t just feel sorry for those in need. He didn’t say, “Oh well, that’s too bad.” No, His compassion moved Him to action. In the same way, 1 John 3:17 says about us, “If anyone…sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart of compassion against him, how can the love of God live in him?” We all have a heart of compassion that God wants to work through toward others, and it can either be open or shut. If it is shut off, God’s love cannot flow out of it, which I believe is the reason some of us are unhappy today. We’ve closed our heart of compassion. If we’re going to live the abundant life that God has given us, we need to stir up our heart of compassion and say, “God, open my heart and my eyes to see the people who need my love today.”

Manasseh is Coming – Joel Osteen | Joel Osteen Podcast

Do you feel forgotten today? Have you gone through situations that are so painful and hard to forget, you don’t know how you’ll ever feel light again?

If there’s anyone who understands heartache and betrayal, it’s Joseph. He was betrayed by his brothers, thrown into a pit, and eventually sold into slavery. But all along, God had a plan for Joseph. After his trials, Joseph ended up being in charge of all Egypt. He was blessed in such a way that he said in Genesis 41:51 (AMP), “God has made me forget all my trouble and hardship.” He named his son Manasseh which means in Hebrew “causing to forget.”

Like Joseph, God wants to bless you in such a way that you won’t remember the pain of the past. You may feel forgotten, but God hasn’t forgotten about you. He’s seen your heartache and has collected every tear you’ve shed. He’s going to turn your pain around in such a way that you’re overwhelmed with His goodness. God is going to cause you to forget!

We recently celebrated the resurrection of Jesus in an Easter service, and now I want to encourage you to not just celebrate His resurrection but live the resurrection life He came to give us. How do we live this resurrection life? We have to take hold of everything Jesus has given us through His death and resurrection. He took your sin and shame, everything that would ever try to come on you, and He paid your debt in full. “He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west” (Psalm 103:12). We don’t have to walk in guilt and condemnation. We are free to go and live the resurrection life.

Nothing has randomly happened in your life. Everything has been carefully orchestrated, even the good and the bad, the blessings and the disappointments. Even in times where we’ve failed and made mistakes, God has already planned how to restore us and get us back on course.

God has ordered your steps. Your life is divinely orchestrated. Let Joel teach you how to keep moving forward even when you don’t understand. Stay in faith when people betray you. Do the right thing when the wrong thing is happening. Your time is coming. What God has ordained will come to pass! No person, situation, or thing can stop what God has ordained for your life!

Remove the Grave Clothes – Joel Osteen | Joel Osteen Podcast

God’s love for us is relentless, and His grace goes to the most unlikely places and people. But just as God used Jesus to raise Lazarus from the grave, God is counting on us to run after the hurting and to go after the broken.

It’s easy to judge others, but underneath the dirt, the mess and bad decisions, there’s a son or a daughter of the Most High God. God is counting on us to represent His love and redemption to those in need. They may be bound on the outside, but like Lazarus, on the inside they’re a person of destiny. They just need someone to help remove the grave clothes. Will you be that person? Take time to make a difference in the lives of those who desperately need it. As you live life as a healer, lifter and a restorer, the seeds you sow will come back to you. You will rise higher and overcome your own obstacles!

Jesus said, “The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63). When you get the Word of God in your mouth, you create a strong, spiritual life that will send you on the course to life. Your words will direct you beside still waters and take you to green pastures. They’ll lead you to refreshment for your soul. Let’s be very attentive to the words that we speak. Let’s remember our words are containers of power that can direct our course. We can prophesy our future.

Uncommon – Joel Osteen | Joel Osteen Podcast

God did not create you to be common. We are living in a day where the standards are being lowered, where it’s acceptable to compromise, take the easy way out, and have no integrity. If we’re not careful, we’ll adapt to our environment and become like everyone else. This way of living can limit what God wants to do in our lives.

Paul said in Romans 12:2, “Don’t let society squeeze you into its mold.”

Learn why it’s important to live with integrity and excellence. When you make the decision to be uncommon, to not fit in and do what everyone else is doing, then you will see uncommon favor, strength, friendships and increase! You will become everything God created you to be!

We all have the capacity to grow and produce more than we’re producing right now. We all can do more for God. We have so much more inside us!

But you have to say, “No, I’m not going to let the flesh run wild. I’m going to put it under control with my strong spirit man.” Discipline and self-control are the tools that God gave you to succeed and to reach your full potential.
