This is some inspiration from Joel Olsteen....

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE “The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and I am helped. My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.” (Psalm 28:7, NIV) TODAY’S WORDfrom Joel and Victoria

Praise and strength go hand in hand. When you give God praise, He gives you strength. When you thank God in advance for the answer, that’s what keeps you encouraged.

Remember, you’re not going to stay strong in faith by complaining. Complaining drains you of strength and energy. You’re not going to stay determined if you’re talking about how bad it is. No, switch over into praise. “Business may be slow, but Lord, I want to thank You that You prosper me even in a desert.” “The people coming against me may be powerful, but Lord, I want to thank You that You are all-powerful.” Praise will keep you moving forward!

So often we think, “I’ll give God praise after the problem turns around.” But if you don’t learn this principle to thank God in advance, you won’t have the strength you need to wait for the promise. Every morning when you wake up, start the day by saying, “Father, thank You that my dreams are coming to pass. Thank You that this problem is turning around. Thank You that You are bigger than this obstacle.” Keep praising Him and keep receiving His strength so you can boldly embrace the victory He has for you!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY Father, today I give You praise because You are worthy. Thank You for working in my life even when I can’t see it. I bless You and receive Your strength today in Jesus’ name. Amen. — Joel & Victoria Osteen Have Joel pray a blessing over you Today. CLICK HERE NOW Flood of Favor WITH A GIFT OF ANY AMOUNT
